I LIKE KIM AND I LIKE NICKI,

I LIKE KIM AND I LIKE NICKI, WHEN NICKI STEPPED ONTO THE SCENE, I THOUGHT TO MYSELF THAT HER FLOW WAS HOT. THEN COMES THE CHANGES (NICKI AND KIM), BUTT IMPLANTS, BREAST IMPLANTS, COLLAGEN IN LIPS, ETC........ I LOOK AT BOTH OF THE YOUNG LADIES AND ASK MYSELF HOW CAN THEY GO ON INTERVIEWS AND SAY YOU GOTTA BE HAPPY WITH WHO YOU ARE AS PERSON AND THEY ARE NOT HAPPY WITH THEMSELVES. TO BE BOTHE LADIES ARE PERPERTRATING A FRAUD. BUT I STILL LIKE THEM BOTH, WILL I GOT OUT OF MY WAY TO BUY CONCERT TICKETS IF THEY CAME TO SC, NAH...

Like I SAID, she need to

Like I SAID, she need to maybe go into acting with her looking like Chaka Khan, make a premiere "movie" starring: Chaka Khan. She could attract another cloud of fans. This could be her best bet. Someone might take her seriously.

This is the thing Kim: At

This is the thing Kim: At this point, who cares. it's not going to help your career, nor hurt hers and you looks desperate and bitter behind this ish. When it comes to look, she bit some shit, and some shit she didn't. So what. She looks foolish and half the time, so did you. But Nikki got SKILLS, whether they're you cup of tea or not (they're not mine but she went in on some songs, admittedly) and that's what matters. Her flow, her content and presentation (musically) do not resemble yours. Get over it and do you, Kim.

MY THOUGHTS: KIM IS HOT,

MY THOUGHTS: KIM IS HOT, HAVEN'T HEARD FROM HER IN A WHILE, SHE HAD HER TIME AND HER SHINE. KIM WE ALL KNOW YOU GOT IT. THERE ARE SOME OF US THAT STILL LISTEN TO YOUR MUSIC TO THIS DAY. BUT WHAT THE INDUSTRY LOOK FOR IS FRESH NEW FACES TO KEEP UP WITH THE FRESH NEW GENERATION. NICKI FAN BASE IS MAINLY YOUNG KIDS. AS FAR AS HER COPYING KIM STYLE, MAYB MAYB NOT, EVERYBODY PUT THERE OWN TWIST TO EVERYTHING. ITS THE WAY THE WORLD WORK. IF I SEE MY HOMEGIRL WITH A SHIRT THAT I LIKE, YES IM GOING TO GO BUY IT. LIFE IS SHORTER THAN WE THINK, AND AS WOMEN, I THINK WE SHOULD MOTIVATE EACH OTHER, STOP LETTING THE YOUNG GENERATION FEEL LIKE ITS OKAY TO EACH OTHER. IN THE WORDS OF TUPAC "YOU GOTTA KEEP YOUR HEAD UP."

Kim use to be the hottest

Kim use to be the hottest female in the game. Everyone has their time in the sun. Kim's time has came and went. Instead of dissing Nicki, do what the smart rappers do..... join her. (Jay, Kanye' and Luda). She probably could have really came back up if she would have joined Nicki. Now she just looks like a has been. I really hate it too, cause I still remember "Queen Bitch". That record was sick.

I love Kim but she needs to

I love Kim but she needs to stfu now. Move on already. PLEASE. Your fans know what it is. You don't have to keep dwelling on it. Nicki can't fuck with you lyrically and her album was TRASH. I don't care if 10 million people bought it. Sales are not equivalent to success. Kim just focus on YOU and let Nicki shine right now.

OMG im so sad right now...

OMG im so sad right now... Kim why are you doin this to yourself... You look so stupid right now... i ahve all your albums and i know all your lyrics and your suppost to be this hardcore BITCH but yet your letting Nicki make you soft... Your lost Ma really lost can somebody please find the real KIM for me because the Kim i grown to love would just comeback and show people why shes hot vs. talking shit and being petty... I was down when Kim was beefin wit Foxy Brown, i was down when Kim was beefin wit Eve, i was down when Kim was beefin wit Remy Ma, and now shes beefin with NIcki Minaj... Kim this all cant be a coincidence... I still Love u Kim more than Nicki, Kim is the Queen but its seeming like shes just being a hater now... Nicki was really be a equal component if Kim is stooping this low... :(

Kim has really stooped low.

Kim has really stooped low. I've seen many crazy fan made comparison videos/picture sets but I've NEVER witnessed the actual artist release such foolishness. If you're the QUEEN or legendary at anything you act regal as if Nicki doesn't exist in your world. This video makes Kim looks like she is obsessed with Nicki. Madonna, Tina Turner, Janet, etc. could do the same thing to Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Britney but they're to sophisticated to allow jealously to eat them alive. Either Kim needs to release something no related to Nicki or just retire from rapping. Kim fans don't really want to hear about Nicki anyways.

Umm all i see is the same

Umm all i see is the same wigs i see nothing else... Kim has too much time on her hands to be making collages... Thats sad KIM... Im LOVE kim and nicki but i have to honestly say the only comparrison i see is the wigs... But nickis style of wigs is the same yet Kims is different... BUt Nickis rap style, delivery, look, appeal is completely different... This video is what washed up people do tryna make a come back... But its not working... Kim i would never have thought that you make a video like this... you might have lost a fan im goin to Best Buy tonight and finally gonna buy Nickis album... Kim im SMFH... maybe becuase im grown and nstead of doing all this run around i would have approaced Nicki myself not on no BEEF type stuff but jus as a mentor Clearly Nicki looks up to you which shes said 100's of times... but its like i feel when somebody praises you you should take that and respect that... you shouldnt have to revert because after this collage what else can she really say... everything after this point is jus gonna be STUPUD... Kim get it together PLEASE...

Its funny to me becuae i have

Its funny to me becuae i have been following Nicki since she came onto the scene in 2006 and Nicki always paid homage to Lil Kim... Its when Lil Kim wanted credit for Nicki's success but Nicki and her team weren’t wit that is when Kim started hating and thats when Nicki thru that shot at Kim... I mean people dont know the truth and clearly Lil Kim is a liar Like Radio shows have proved her saying one thing on twitter but then saying another on the radio show... Kim feel Nicki is competetion and all shes doin is using slander... Nicki mos definitely copied a few color of wigs but she never prsented herself as TRASH like Lil Kim was Known for... and since when do people like Music artist based on there appearance its the music not the look... when your paying that song on you phone, mp3, or in your car your not looking at them... Nicki may have taken a few things from Kim from jump but Nicki has paved her own way in the industry... Kim has burned all her bridges in the industry and she has to resort to ignorance and pettiness in order to make herself feel relevant... I feel Kim has die hard fans and i feel Nicki has Die hard fans but its said that Kim cant do anything without someone mentioning Nicki but Nicki over here on top not mentioning Lil Kim... Kim did the same thing to Foxy, Eve, Missy, Trina, Mc Lyte, and Remy Ma... All these females that i lidted all have diss songs towards Kim... Kim comes at any female in the game she feels is taking her spot... and the same thing she said about all these ladies is the same thing she saying about Nicki... the only difference is Nicki is universal and blew up and Kim is jealous point blank... Kim talks about Nicki bein Plastic but Kim has had more sugeries than anyone on top of the fact that Nicki has admitted more times than just one to having ass implants but lets see how many plastic surguries Kim will admit too umm none, Kims known for bein trashy and trash cant compete with class anybody knows that, Kim talks about nicki being POP but kim is featured on a pop song right now, Kim talks about nicki jacking her Barbie shit well Kim called herself a balck barbie but that was never her persona Nicki carried that and it made a life of its own... Usher was competeing in the sang ring as Chris Brown, Wiz with Snoop, Keyshia with Mary J, Gaga with madonna, mariah with whitney, and all of them never reverted to disrespect... They may have felt a certain way about a newer version of them hittin the scene but they still focused on there music yet Kim is focused Consistantly on Nicki... Like ive said all you Kim fans who knock Nicki are knockin Kim too think about it... If nicki is that weak and corny why waste your time talking bout her EXACTLY stumped huh… Kim may be the original but Nicki is the NOW... Kim is Nicki's biggest fan and shes proved that in more ways than just one... Nicki doin shows, tours, magazines, talk shows, taking pictures, buying lambos but Kim over here calling in to these radio shows to bash Nicki… that’s sad as hell... Even these celebrities who were in Kims corner are sayin Kim looks Petty and needs to let it go… Im not sayin shes washed up shes only 36 its too early to count her completely out but shes only making herself look DUMB... hating on a Chick whos Winning makes you a LOSER... Kim focus back on your music and let us know why they dubbed you queen because if you keep this up your be too far past to catch back up...
