Somebody Lied to You: People Who Swear They Can Sing But Really Can’t

Nicki Minaj

For the most part, Nicki spends more time rapping really fast and saying things like, “I’m a star: SHERIFF’S BADGE,” and “If you could turn back time: CHER,” in really loud and charismatic voices (keyword: voices). But every once and again, she tries her hand at singing. In fact, she’s on a majority of her songs trying to sing the hook. Man, the studio and some expensive equipment can really have folks sounding great, but get them on stage and it’s another horrible, just HORRIBLE story. I’ve seen her perform “Super Bass” about 30 times in the past few months, and every time the bridge comes in–See I need you in my life for me to stay–she actually tries to sing it on stage. Too bad her voice wounds up sounding like someone out of breath who just got hit in the nose: MARCIA BRADY. Oooooh, you like how I did that, right?
