The social media world blew up when Nicki Minaj won her BET award and she gave her acceptance speech. Immediately following Nicki’s speech, social media began to dissect every thing Nicki had to say. As most of the world assumed Nicki’s speech included shots fired at fellow female artist Iggy Azalea, Nicki has since taken to twitter to clear the air. Check out what Nicki had to say below.

” The media puts words in my mouth all the time and this is no different. I will always take a stance on women writing b/c I believe in us! I believe we’re smart enough to write down our own thoughts and perspective, just like the men do. I’ve been saying this for 5 YEARS.

I fell in love with Lauryn Hill b/c I knew she was the author behind those amazingly profound and articulated songs on the MisEducation. I wondered how Lauryn tapped into my brain and wrote an album on love, betrayal, passion, pain, triumph, brokenness…. Did she read minds?

It’s the same reason I have a different level of respect for Missy. I know she’s a writer and a producer. Women MUST aspire for more. I’ve congratulated Iggy on the success of Fancy, publicly. She should be very proud of that. All the women nominated should b proud. That will never change my desire to motivate women to write. Our voices have to be heard. I hope I inspire up & coming females to do that.”
