First Taylor Swift tried to whip her hair like Willow Smith, and now she’s trying to rap like Nicki Minaj, busting out a few lines to Nicki’s Pink Friday cut “Super Bass” during a recent radio interview.
“This is a song that is an album cut off of Nicki Minaj’s album [Pink Friday], and I’ve been listening to it on repeat,” she told the radio host. “I’ve really freaked my friends out because I can recite every single lyric to the rap.”
It may shock you, but Taylor was a much better rapper than she is hair whipper, keeping up with some of Nicki’s speed and even getting down a bit of the New York accent. Considering that Nicki watered Pink Friday down so much, it’s not really a surprise that she has fans like Taylor Swift rapping along to all her songs.
Nicki and Taylor may seem different from first glance, but the two do have one thing in common — chart success. Nicki’s Pink Friday has somehow managed to sell a million copies in the US, and has yet to leave the top ten since it’s release, while Taylor’s latest Speak Now has sold just over 3.1 million copies in the States and also has yet to leave the top ten since it’s release.
