‘It’s quite pathetic’ Nicki Minaj slams Sharon Osbourne’s hypocrisy


It looks like there's no love lost between Nicki Minaj and Sharon Osbourne if a recent interview with the rapper is anything to go by.

While chatting with Marie Claire recently, the Anaconda singer pulled the X Factor judge up on her apparent hypocrisy when it comes to women within the entertainment industry.

Drawing attention to comments Sharon made regarding Nicki's Anaconda artwork back in 2014, Nicki suggested that the reality star has a warped view of what is and isn't acceptable when it comes to the female body.

Speaking at the time, Sharon compared the cover to pornography, saying: "This looks like a cheap porno cover of a DVD… I love women’s bodies. I love nudity, but this is cheap."

And yet when Kim Kardashian shared a nude selfie online, Sharon was among Kim's supporters – something which Nicki struggles to understand.

"When Kim Kardashian’s naked picture came out Sharon Osbourne praised it and my fans attacked her for being such a hypocrite," Nicki told the magazine.

"So it wasn’t trashy and raunchy when a white woman did it but it was when a black woman did it?" Nicki asked while reflecting on the apparent hypocrisy.

The star, who is known for speaking her mind and drawing attention to inequality within the music industry, says she's learned to accept it on some levels.

"It’s quite pathetic and sad but that is my reality and I’ve gotten accustomed to just shutting it down." she added.

Sharon? Your move.
