“Part of my problem with that is Meek’s music is too hard,” said Joe in reference to the couple’s BET Awards appearance where they performed Meek’s “All Eyes On You”. ”Meek’s music is too hard for me to look at him with this fucking sappy fuck shit. Be the hardcore guy that I’m sure [Nicki] was attracted to at some point. It’s nasty. I hate everything about it.” He continued to say, ”[Meek's] all…like this bitch just stepped off of fucking Mars and is like the only girl. I hate it all. But I do appreciate them for keeping the hope of love alive.”
Nicki Minaj got wind of Budden’s comments and took to Twitter to respond, with her fans having a field day with all the shade being thrown.
