Lil' Kim’s side of the K. Michelle Twitter beef story is different from that of the “Love 'Em All" singer. Power 105'1's The Breakfast Club caught up with Kim this morning (Sept. 29), over a week after Michelle's visit.
“That chick is a bag of pecans! A trail mix!” Kim said, jokingly comparing Michelle to the “nut that you put back” in a mixed back of treats. “My son, she is so nuts, you are liable to see her skipping. Who skips?”
Aside from calling her crazy, Kim said she never asked Michelle to be godmother to her infant daughter, Reign. “Chick is nuts yo,” reiterated the new mom. “First of all why would I ever make her my child’s godmother? I’ve only met this woman one time. One time in person. We talked on the phone after that because she was a fan of mine. I appreciate that, anybody who shows me love, I’ma show love back.”
That love didn’t extend to her family however. Kim maintained that she “never” had the godmother conversation with Michelle. “I don’t know you. Why would I do that?”
She also addressed the Twitter spat, calling Michelle out for allegedly lying again. According to the Brooklyn rap legend, Michelle never reached out after their word exchange on social media, as she claimed. “Let’s just clear this up, too. If she had called me, we would’ve never been in that predicament,” noted Kim.
The root of the ladies’ problems seems to be a performance at Power 105.1’s Powerhouse last year. Kimmy Blanco took the stage with Kendrick Lamar, although she was supposed to be come out with Michelle. Wires got crossed and the collaboration fell through, leading to Michelle turning “sour” and retaliating against Kim, despite the fact that they were “building” a friendship. “When you don’t know people in this industry, they show who they really are,” Kim said. “That’s why I don’t get close to people in this industry. It’s nuts.”
There was also talk of Nicki Minaj and her verse on the “Flawless" remix, which the Queen Bee believes was aimed in her direction. “She been waiting for so long to say that word, ‘Queen Bee,’ because that’s her obsession,” she said of Minaj’s line where she references Beyoncé as royalty first, then calls herself the “queen of rap.” “Let’s be real. First of all, I love Beyoncé, and rightfully so,” Kim started. “She’s definitely the queen, but what’s my name? What has been my name?Who are my friends? What did I always rep? The beehive.”
With such obvious similarities, there’s no denying Kim’s influence on Minaj (and maybe even Bey) and she’s tired of not getting her “rightful due.” Still, she’s not harping on anyone’s word use, particularly the “queen” title. ”I don’t mind it, I think we can all share things. When you’re a queen of what you do, you’re just a queen of what you do.”
