Published November 9, 2011

Over the weekend, Nicki Minaj and Willow Smith shot the visuals for Smith's latest single, "Fireball," and when photos hit the web, Lil Kim fans had a few criticisms for Minaj. They claim the "Superbass" rapper copied Lil Kim's style from a 2003 Nylon magazine cover because both singers are wearing outfits covered in stuffed animals. In Lil Kim's version, she paired a tight yellow tank top with a collection of plush toys hanging from her waist. Minaj has a playful red dress that's completely covered with stuffed animals, teddy bears and other cute toys. She wore her whimsical outfit with a pink wig and furry rainbow boots.

Do you think Minaj blatantly copied Lil Kim's outfit or was she just injecting some eccentric style and color into the tween's new video like she usually does? We want to hear from you. Sound off!
