We’ve noticed that Nicki’s photographic presence has changed somewhat over the last couple of years causing us to ask “Is Nicki growing up?”. Some might argue that Nicki has intentionally distanced herself from the overly sexual non-sense that has gotten her compared to Lil Kim. Though that is not an unreasonable surmise we have a better take on it.
Nicki Minaj has always displayed a reluctancy to admit that she is influencing teenage and preteen girls to be hyper sexual. Recently she has come out and stated outright that she is shocked at how young some of her fans are and that she would not let her own daughter listen to her album. Our theory is that Nicki Minaj is alot more sophisticated than she’s ever been given credit for. Perhaps the pressures of “trying to get on” and the everyday compromise of business influenced some of her earlier decisions. Now that Nicki has some soundscan under her belt and a little more influence she is working to correct the effect that some of her earlier work may have had. What do you think?
