The Trinidadian-born performer may have collaborated with the rapper on a number of songs over the years, but Nicki has thrown some shade at Kanye, 39, in her cover story for the November edition of Marie Claire magazine. In the issue, the 33-year-old slammed the rapper for the racially motivated double standards and the sexist messages in his 2005 hit single Gold Digger. Nicki referenced a line from Kanye’s song and even pointed out his current wife, Kim Kardashian, 35.

"I'm so tired of black women feeling that when our men get rich, they're going to leave them for a woman of a different race," she said.
"It wasn't funny when Kanye said (in Gold Digger), 'When he get on, he'll leave your a** for a white girl', and Kanye happens to be with a white girl now. It wasn't funny when he said it; it was the f***ing truth.”
And it wasn't the only criticism the Superbass hitmaker had to make about mother-of two Kim in the interview. She slammed Sharon Osbourne for being a hypocrite after praising Kim's naked selfie and then referring to the image of Nicki sporting just a G-string and sports bra as a "cheap porno cover of a DVD'' during a segment on U.S. show The Talk.
"When Kim Kardashian's naked picture came out (Sharon) praised it and my fans attacked her for being such a hypocrite... It's quite pathetic and sad but that is my reality and I've gotten accustomed to just shutting it down," Nicki raged.
