Nicki Minaj continues to beat back criticism that she's 'gone too pop.' The Young Money starlet is actually embracing the tag--and in an interview with MTV, Minaj says critics need to back off a bit. She's going to keep doing what she does.
"I guess I am pop culture just because what I'm doing seems to be popular. When people want to do what you're doing, it's kinda popular," she reasoned. "I don't ask girls to wear pink hair; they just do it. It's not about black or white; I think it's just a statement. It doesn't matter which color you are; it's just a statement of being fearless."
