Speaking to Marie Claire, Nicki explained: “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.

“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.”

She also blasted X Factor judge Sharon for praising Kim’s naked selfie on The Talk, with Shazza previously slamming Nicki’s ‘Anaconda’ promo cover, which saw her wearing just a pink G-string and a sports bra.

Nicki continued: “So it wasn’t trashy and raunchy when a white woman did it but it was when a black woman did it?

“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.”

Sharon dubbed Nicki’s promo shot as a “cheap porno cover of a DVD” but called Kim’s nude shoot “inspiring”. Yahoo! News
