Minaj Was Uncomfortable With Eminem Slur
Minaj faced a backlash from fans last year (10) after releasing the controversial collaboration, in which Eminem uses the derogatory term "f**got".
The Check It Out star admits she worried about including the line in the song and even asked her gay friends what they thought of the lyric.
Minaj tells Out.com, "You know, if I'm being honest, I didn't like (him using it). I spoke to everyone I knew about it. I spoke to my hairdresser, who's one of my closest friends. I sat him down and said, 'Terrence, what do you think about this? How does this make you feel?' And we had a long, long talk. And he said he didn't feel like Eminem was talking about a gay person. He felt like it was a word being used to describe a straight man, and he didn't take offence to it.
"It's Eminem - I felt like we were creating a movie. And in the same way, I feel like if you were to watch your favourite actor or actress say 'f**got' or say "n**ger" in a movie, you don't hate them because it's like they're playing a role. Roman's Revenge was more like a theatrical piece. I was a character and (Eminem) was a character. Of course, when it comes to creativity, there's such a thin line between creativity and something being offensive."
