Interestingly someone tweeted Nicki asking if she would still continue making pop music like Starships after her new re-release and she said no. Will her Urban fanbase who stopped buying her music after she went pop "use" her again? Overall i think its a good decision.

I think it is a good decision. While i have enjoyed some of her pop music, she is coming across as a manufactured novelty pop star, when she is meant to be a "tough as nails rapper".

I don't know what to make of her. Most of her singles have been dreadful. Starships sounds like an autotuned mess to me. I didn't mind Super Bass too much though and that one featuring Cassie (The Boys) is quite good. Turn Me On is good too. Other than that she gets on my nerves.

Since then she has come to terms with the fact she makes pop music

Damage has already been done. And when she craves mainstream success again she'll be trashing out the generic pop tart tunes like there's no tomorrow.

She can no longer be taken seriously in the rap world. She sold out for a few successful singles and there's no going back in a successful fashion anyway. Her old fans have moved on and her new fans won't like her rap music. She was actually a decent rapper and although songs like Moment for Life are not to my taste I can see why people liked them. Starships and Pound The Alarms etc is just music for kids and most of it is just horrific noise with her fat arse pumping about in the videos. She looks like a nutter, she has no credibility and she dresses just as slutty Rihanna.

Imagine if she had stuck to her sound and the music she originally wanted to release. I think sales would be lower but she'd be far more credible than she is now.

why would she have said that? im confused, she had a go at a journalist for calling her music pop. now shes saying she has been doing pop ??
Ohhh, where can I see/ watch this.

This annoys me, it's her pop music that's actually got her anywhere, why stop doing something that actually gives you a career?

Because it wasn't pop music that got her career. Listen to her mix tapes and debut album. She is suppose to be a rapper.

Im confident still do a few pop/hip-hop crossover songs like Superbass and Va Va Voom she just means no more full on dance songs like Starships.

She's put herself in a tricky position.

It's risky to try and regain the hip/hop crowd she previously alienated, by turning her back on the pop mainstream who gave her popularity. She may be burning the wick at both ends there, leaving her with a smaller fanbase who like both.

The only thing she can really do at this point is to make the strongest hip hop album she can possibly make and hope for the best.

Her hip hop fans made her famous. Nicki got famous around 2009 time, her first pure pop hit (not counting Where Them Girls At or Turn Me On) was Starships in 2012.

The best course for Nicki to take now would be to release poppy hip hop songs like Super Bass and her Dr. Luke collabs. Then both her hip hop and pop fans will like the songs. That's what she was doing in 2010/2011.

However, I do think she may have done so much damage now that the situation could be beyond repair. But she needs to NEVER do split pop/urban singles again. Always use the same song for all formats from now on. Things would be so different for her now if she released Va Va Voom instead of Starships.

I don't think she'll ever stop doing Pop , she knows damn well that's where the money is at.
Except a lot of her hip hop peers have a lot more money than her...

She hit mainstream bigtime from Super Bass though, before that she was pretty niche. Y'know, in terms of how many people knew who she was, that werent massive hip-hop urban fans. I guess Bottoms Up as well, that was the first time I heard her.

Agree with this. Although I knew who Nicki was in 2008 and to be fair she was always crazy than as that nutter Barbie alter ego she had before Roman. However she will have no problem is going back to hip hop and being successful within hip hop because she has all the right people behind her. She is Young Money. Plus Pink Friday fused pop and hip hop together anyway so its not like she completely changed tack. Half of Roman's Reloaded was hip hop. She just focused more on the dance tracks as singles so her fanbase who followed Nicki for who she really was is still intact. She may loose the pop floaters but its not a bad situation for her.

She is a rapper and singer-songwriter. That has nothing to do with pop music though. There are dozens of rappers that focus on pop music.
