Since Sunday, Mane was retweeting fan shout-outs and hyping his new “TrapHouse 3” album when things took an ugly turn. He decided to publicly air some “dirty laundry,” tweeting malicious items against his former manager and confessing he’d had sex with Nicki Minaj (and had photos to sell for $1,000,000). Perez Hilton reported some of the rapper’s choice words about the “Starships” singer: “Me and waka f*ck Nikki Minaj dats nothing,”B*tch u was sleepin n d car. Bitch. I pulled dat b*tch off wayne bus,” and finally …”So Nikki I didnt have u in atl for 2 weeks room rate 60 a night?” Of course, if you know anything about Nicki Minaj, there way no way she was going to let this fly. She denied Mane’s claims with #crackhead and #BubbaGump hashtags, telling fans, “Jesus strike me dead right now if I ever had sex with this animal.” Both stars have since deleted these statements, but the following tweets are still up: Fuck social media Gucci Mane (@gucci1017) September 11, 2013 My ex manager hack my acct str8 up It appears to be a grave situation for Gucci Mane. His behavior has sparked talks of intervention for alleged drug problems — one of Minaj’s deleted tweets said he is in “dire need of rehab.” It is unclear if the strange ordeal was a hoax or a cry for help.

Nicki Minaj And Gucci Mane Engage In Sex-Fueled Twitter War

While his meticulously crafted electronic music has won accolades, he’s never performed in public. His fans don’t know his real name or even where he hails from. Now Tanaka, in a lawsuit filed under the name of his company, is accusing the Trinidad-born Minaj of stealing from his 2011 song “Neu Chicago” to create the electro-pop hooks that drove her best-selling single. In a copyright infringement suit filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Chicago, Tanaka said Minaj and several of her “Starships” collaborators copied substantial portions of “Neu Chicago,” which Tanaka claims had already enjoyed widespread airplay in the U.S. and hundreds of thousands of listens online by the time “Starships” was written. Tanaka, whose company, Tanaka Light Industries USA, lists a business address in an industrial building on Chicago’s West Side, was not available for comment. The only personal information provided in the suit states that Tanaka was born in 1976 and is a U.S. citizen. His attorney, Christopher Niro, said Tanaka was “working on a new album and screenplay,” possibly in South America. “Argentina, from what I was told,” Niro said in an interview at his Loop offices at Niro, Haller & Niro. “He’s kind of a reclusive he makes and produces music and that’s his goal.” In addition to Minaj, the lawsuit names RedOne, whose real name is Nadir Khayat, a Moroccan producer and songwriter behind hits for stars like Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull. Also named are three other writers on “Starships,” Carl Falk, Wayne Hector and Rami Yacoub. Calls to Minaj’s manager, Manny Halley, as well as to representatives of RedOne, were not returned Tuesday.

Cher Lloyd Wants To Collab With Nicki Minaj! Um, Can We Make This Crazy Face-Off Happen?! (GIFs)

Um, Can We Make This Crazy Face-Off Happen?! (GIFs) Posted 9/11/13 1:30 pm EST by John Walker in Celebrity , Interviews , Videos Can you even handle what a Cher Lloyd and Nicki Minaj collab would look like?! When Cher Lloyd sat down for a quick chat with MTV News , they played an interview game inspired by her new single “I Wish” featuring T.I. Cher was asked about what she wishes she could change about herself (“Me hair!”), things she wishes she didn’t say in an interview (she basically pleads the fifth!), and her dream collaborator. Her answer? Nicki Minaj ! We think this makes so much sense — the “Want U Back” singer and “Love More” rapper are basically, like, the U.K.’s and the U.S.’s respective QUEENS of the crazy face! Can you imagine the music video possibilities for a hypothetical collab? It could be like Sinead O’Connor ‘s “Nothing Compares 2 U” or those close-ups of Miley Cyrus in “Wrecking Ball,” only instead of being stoic and sad, Cher and Nicki display ALL THE EMOTIONS. Or, what about an homage to the John Travolta/ Nicolas Cage cinematic masterpiece “Face/Off,” where our emotive beauties keep switching features with each other?? WHY CAN’T THIS MUSIC VIDEO BE REAL ALREADY?! At least until then (IF EVER #SADS), we’ll have this Cher Lloyd/ Nicki Minaj crazy face GIF wall!
