Nicki Minaj Being Called Next Lady Gaga

Nicki Minaj is the “it” girl right now. Everyone is talking about her, and Hollyscoop got the EXCLUSIVE scoop from fellow artists about why Nicki is so hot!

Music producer Sean Garrett told us, “It was crazy working with Nicki. She’s animated, she’s a lot of fun. We went in there trying to do something really massive….She’s a superstar.”

Garrett explained, “She’s been underground a long time, and is just getting to be mainstream. She’s probably been working like four years .”

Hollyscoop also talked with our favorite Brit Jay Sean, who collaborated with Minaj on his next album. “She’s a really really good emcee,” Jay said of Nicki. “She has a lot of charisma, she’s fun, she’s exciting, and I think people are excited by that. It’s something new, it’s something fresh.”

So is Nicky the next Lady Gaga?

Choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson, who put together Minaj’s VMA pre-show dance routine for her new song “Check It Out',” says yes. She told MTV News, "What I love about Nicki is she has the eye of the tiger and she is fearless. These are the components that I saw about three years ago in Lady Gaga. I thought, 'This is going to be fantastic.' Her swag is amazing".
