You may have heard once or twice in the past Ms. Onika Tanya Maraj (a.k.a. Nicki Minaj) describing "all these b*tches" as her "sons." Today, however, it appears as though she has more of a daughter than any actual sons. Or a sister. Or a clone. Uh, we're confused.
It would appear Nic has a look-a-like — except, drum roll please — it's a white girl. *Lets out an extremely long, disgruntled sigh.*
Apparently, a college student named Jaiah Fern got all dolled up for her birthday outing earlier this week — but the internet soon drew parallels to an actual real-life doll: Barbie, a.k.a. Nicki Minaj, a.k.a. Nicki Lewinksy, a.k.a. — you get the point.
It was all fun and games with Twitter users loving the resemblance — that is, until other photos of Fern that painted a much different (read: white) picture surfaced.
Fern insists she was "not trying to be Nicki or use her as a costume in any way," in a statement to Yahoo! News.
"I think the dark hair combined with my tan and other facial features that make me look kind of ambiguous? I don’t know. My foundation shade has always been the same,” she said.
If anything, this is just preparation for Halloween, when non-POCs will inevitably f*ck up by way of "costumes," as they do like clockwork every year.
We will save the rest of our long, drawn-out sighs for the end of the month.
