    If anyone thought that crap kim did was good then they have horrible taste in music I honestly could of came up with that shit its so elaborate its not even music… Nicki’s Starships was way better and everyone knows it, they just want to deny it because they Hate Nicki its quite pathetic and immature really but thats your problem you’ll have to face. Nicki uses intellect in her music something Kim obviously lacks. Im sorry to give all you HATERS the truth but NICKI IS THE NEW QUEEN! SHE IS WAY BETTER THAN KIM! AND THE SOONER YOU REALIZE IT THE SOONER YOU CAN GET OVER YOUR HATE AND BECOME A BETTER PERSON!! Fucking retards
