[An appreciation blog]
“There are amazing things going on that i really wish i could share. i feel very guarded in speaking to you guys tho. its not like it used to be ya know?… sometimes i wanna wisk (hope that’s a word) you guys away so that i can tell u all my secrets in confidence… w/o the evil eyes watching us.”- Nicki M.
We know. We understand and we agree. We feel that shit too. We know the blogs stalk your twitter (and ours too) digging for information and waiting for you to slip so they can twist your words and make it into something they’re not. Almost everything you tweet ends up as an article on a blog. Or they use it as some kind of proof to whatever ridiculous story they’re brewing.
“It’s easy to see two million followers and think, ‘Look at all these people who love me!’ But not all of them love me,” remember when you said this? You be knowing. There’s been multiple times where I’ve seen articles about you based on what you tweeted. Sometimes positive. Sometimes negative. So I definitely know why you feel ‘guarded’ and reluctant to just blatantly tell us what’s going on.
I love that throughout your journey to the top you never forgot about us. You always try your hardest to stay connected and that means the world to us. Whether it be twitter, ustream, or blogtalk radio; you make that effort. When you made the Tinychat on this website I thought that was the cutest thing ever. Lol. Even though you thought it was just a text-chat and not a video chat. Lmao. You should definitely put that tinychat to use before the tour starts. That would be awesome. :D
I will NEVER forget what you did for me and the rest of Team Minaj NYC. Saturday Night Live was truly a Moment 4 Life and I couldn’t thank you enough for that experience. You always go that extra mile for us; Inviting us into your hotels (N.O. and UK), refusing to go onstage and perform if your Barbz couldn’t join you (the show in Albany), bringing Team Minaj to join you in VIP when you make club appearances (many locations), signing autographs and taking pictures with mobs outside your events even though you don’t HAVE to. The common folk would never understand why we stan like we do! You make it all worth it. We give you love and you return it tenfold. It really shows you actually CARE about us and appreciate everything we do for you. That’s why you’ll always have our support. No matter what.
You’re VIP packages are also really generous! Meet & greet. Photo. Signed poster. Special treatment. AND you feeding us. WTF? Who does that? Certainly not Wayne. All his VIP included was a shirt, a hat, and a poster- not even a signed one either. -__- This why I gotta love you so much ‘cause I know you must’ve had to fight for this beautiful deal. Thank you.
We know Team Minaj will always have a special place in your heart. “[Team Minaj] I will always love you; from the bottom of my heart. You are my everything.” One of my favorite quotes.
As we climb the mountain of success we know that our connection will grow weaker; sort of like a cell phone. You might have great connection on the floor but the higher you climb the mountain the weaker the connection becomes and you’re left with one or zero bars.
Then again we are always connected through your music, which is the strongest connection of them all. That’s where to touch us the most, and help us when we need that extra push. Through your music.
As we embark on this journey with you we shall come to terms with the fact they we must accept the pickle juice from time to time. You’re becoming a superstar and your fan base is growing. This is what we want for you. It’s bittersweet because we don’t get you to ourselves anymore. We get mad at the common folk but they’re fans too and they bought Pink Friday as well. Team Minaj couldn’t get you that platinum plaque alone. So we can’t be so selfish. It does kind of suck though, I’m not gonna lie (lol) but you spoiled us plenty. We appreciate that. You always go that extra mild to cater to us and make us feel special and giving us our ‘moment 4 life’. We’ll be aight.
WE have success in our grasp. We’ve broken so many records. We’ve proved so many people wrong. We’ve shown that female rappers can be successful. Talent is stronger than any statistic. We have shitted in the mouths of the naysayers. They are currently STILL trying to pick their faces off the floor. We have breaking down so many barriers and set records that may take awhile to break. We’ve set the bar at a new high, and this is just the BEGINNING for us. I use the word “we” so often because it’s you and us Nicki. Against the world. Against all trials. Against all obstacles. We are here. The people from your past who have turned on you doesn’t even matter. We’re stronger than they are. We are winning. In your words; ‘We good on this side.’
This part is for SB (make sure he reads it too, lol). Safaree has been by your side since forever, and he is a major part of Team Minaj. We love him and appreciate him more than he knows. We know that he’s loyal to you and he takes good care you. We have grown to love him just as we love you. You guys are a package deal. You go together like salt and pepper, peanut butter and jelly, bagel and cream cheese, cheese and crackers, Itchy and Scratchy, Bart and Ernie, SpongeBob and Patrick. You go together like “ramma lamma lamma ka dinga da dinga dong” (from “Grease”) Lmfaoo! Point is; we love him. We know he’ll be there until the end and his ignorance gives everyone LIFE! Great call including him on “Did It On Em”. He definitely did that justice.
On behalf of my team I just wanna say you have our support. We’ll shut niggas down for you, and bitches too cause we don’t discriminate. Ya dig? Team Minaj ‘till the casket drop.
We thank you. We love you.
