Just a day of being signed to Columbia Records and newbie, Kreayshawn, is stirring up controversy. When the East Oakland native spoke to Complex last month, May, she shared her thoughts on Nicki Minaj and her message.
"No disrespect to [Nicki Minaj] because she's got talent. She's got an image. But when it comes to inspiring young women, her message is to be a Barbie-to be plastic, to be fake, to all have blonde hair," Kreayshawn told Complex.
Yesterday, June 8, Kreayshawn took time to speak with Billboard.com's The Juice on her comments about Nicki Minaj.
"I'm not hating on anybody. I'm not coming for anybody's neck. I say one thing about Nicki Minaj that's not a diss at all and you have Nicki Minaj fans barking at me," Kreayshawn says. "I love Nicki's thing, she's independent and a powerful woman."
Kreayshawn continued to speak on the difference between her movement and those of other female artists. "I think it's important for different female voices to be heard. I'm representing for something that hasn't been said yet or [hasn't been said] in a long time [which is] to be yourself, be creative. I don't want people to be like 'I'm going to dress like Kreayshawn,' or 'I'm going to do my hair like Kreayshawn.' I want people to be different and follow their own lane."
