Recently, Lil Mama sits down with Vibe and discusses her “trendsetting” style. In fact, despite our recent observation at the MTV Movie Awards, Lil Mama claims that she is the inspiration to Nicki Minaj’s signature Barbie style. Is this chick delusional?!
Here is what she told Vibe:
“My cut is blunt and futuristic and Nicki Minaj started wearing that bob on her head after she came to my show, so at the end of the day I know what I do and I know what I possess and I know who I am. I’m a trendsetter. The biggest form of flattery is imitation so I’m flattered. I understand the universal law. I’m not confused, I don’t feel like a follower. I started so many things that new artists are doing now anyway –my style, the way I’m aggressive on a track, the way I come through, the way my beat bangs. There are so many things that were borrowed, that I influenced that’s happening in music right, so I’m far from discouraged.”
I can’t believe Mama really thinks she has a sense of style. I can’t remember a time I ever watched America’s Best Dance Crew and thought “Wow what a great outfit!” Lil Mama has always been that artist who tried to place herself somewhere; we all saw how foolishly she acted at the 2009 VMAs. It’s like Lil Mama was the square trying to fit into a round hole. She doesn’t fit in… at all.
“She was a guest on ‘America’s Best Dance Crew’ and immediately afterwards, everywhere she went, she was wearing the haircut, the same exact way. I’m actually flattered because she imitated me and it felt like something that I was doing was cute and in time for the fashion and for the season, so it’s like let’s live, let’s do it.”
Wow Mama, I think it’s time to stop acting like you’re relevant. The only reason she’s even a D-list celebrity is because someone thought she had enough credibility to be a judge on America’s Best Dance Crew.
