  • Jusstlookn

    Congrats on her cover.

    What is her demographics? She has not influnced me!

    I hope it not folks killing themselves for bigger butts.

  • Li

    Why? What did she do?

  • Yoni

    No word on the brother being INDICTED?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    She looks different or something. I don't know if I would have recognized her.

    I don't know influential she is now but I know she had grown women walking around in tutus with cotton candy hair when she first came out. So that is influence.

  • Joyce Jones

    Figures. It's written by Lil Wayne which I think is a conflict of interest but whatever.

  • MsSincerity

    But How???

  • MissHarlem

    Congrats. Anyone but the Cum fam ?

  • SunRiseBlossom

    This has to be a J.O.K.E!!!

  • SameoleJ

    Nicki Minaj by Lil Wayne........what does that mean?

  • MissHarlem

    BTW she's only one out of 100 influential so calm your nuts. The other people on that list is just as "deserving".

    "She looks different or something."
    ----------------

    She looks like she died with her eyes and mouth open.

  • Jusstlookn

  • SameoleJ

    Oh, umkay.............

  • Angela

    Whelp she did influence people like Kylie on how to get plastic surgery and change your whole face so the public will take to you better..She did influence people by showing them how to bite another female rappers whole entire style and claim it as yours and your creations..Yes, Nic is influential all right????

  • Sucker Free

    By the look of her neck...she has lived

  • GubmentCheeze

    Maybe in 2012...now not so much. Her brother is about to be filet mignon in the big house...

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Time chose a washed up rapper to grace the cover?

  • Finding Forever…

  • SameoleJ

    Help her out.....Time chose a washed up rapper to grace ONE OF the coverS

  • GubmentCheeze

    Oh I wasn't ready...you comment just gave me life LOL

  • Bam Bam

    I guess it was ok to put her on the cover of Time since we gon put Harriet Tubman on a Dub now. Why not? (sarcasm)

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    There have always been hoes and thots... she isn't the first nor the last.

  • MissHarlem

    Sigh don't even waste your time

  • SameoleJ

    She ain't even the best!! LOL

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    I guess the word influential has different meanings.

  • MissHarlem

    So sessi you is

  • SameoleJ

    Nope, the meaning didn't change, just people's interpretation.

  • SameoleJ

    Don't encourage that brain!! LOL

  • JerseyMom

    This is the same magazine that had Adolf Hitler on its cover in the 50's.. Next!

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    I'm not... I felt like mentioning it since I'm feeling a little hoe-like today.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    No one reads TIME any more.

  • iWasteTime

    Time chose a washed up rapper to grace the cover?
    -----------------------------
    This year there is only one cover?
    Usually there are 5

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I tries. You sessi as well. *hugs ya*

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    I need to see that hoe fax first... I mean you're probably a better hoe than she is *walks away*

  • Finding Forever…

    (Raise hand & waves wildly)...I K-N-O-W someone who would beg to differ, LOL...
    M_ _ K M_I_ (fill in the blanks, LOL)--he would say if she was sooooo influential, she could use her power, ability & influence (of course) to get him out of this "sticky situation", LOL.

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Influential how? I don't see her fighting for any cause , giving back or standing at the UN fighting for anything .
    She influences hood rats desiring bigger diaper derrières .

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I feel hoe like at least 3 times a week.

  • MissHarlem

    Me too ?

  • SameoleJ

    @Yoni Ain't here so.....There is one caller ahead of you, Jimmy!! CTHU

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    I should probably fix my statement and say more hoe like than normal. LOL

  • Sucker Free

    My bad. She influenced the chinese bang wig craze

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lol.

  • SameoleJ

    Hoe probably...Thot, nerp!! LOL

  • MissHarlem

    Nope 6 of em but facts and comprehension has no room here

  • iWasteTime

    lolol!
    Just asked this!! ....;lol

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Kanye's boo, Riccardo gotta cover too?

  • MissHarlem

    Ain't hoe and thot the same damn thing ??

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    I was about to say that like uhm ma'am doesn't that mean 'That hoe... '

  • semaj24philly

    Gosh your mean lol.Nick looks great & love how they went with a face shot.

  • MissHarlem

    ??? I was like er ummm

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    LMAO... Ricardo.

  • NegroDamus

    with everything else going on in this watered down world. why is this even surprising

  • semaj24philly

    I just noticed that while looking at it again lol.It looks funny but her face itself still looks good.

  • LeBrick James

    I remember when Time magazine had one of the best reputations out there.
    They've really taken a step down over the years.

  • Orchidjones

    I mean:

    I haven't anything against the Mirage, but is this for true? or am I being punked...

    Hard to take anything followed by 'Lil' Wayne' seriously.

  • LeBrick James

    True true.
    They might as well put the Real Housewives of Atlanta on the cover, since they wanna get ridiculous.

  • Vonn

    She looks handsome in this pic, like Roderick Laverne Cox.

  • MissHarlem

    Actually she does give back just doesn't publicize it. Also a part of the cause my brothers keeper with President Obama.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Did he? I know he was on the list. Damn. Go Ricky Ricardo.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I dont like Nicki as an artist. And I have said I think she sometimes comes across a bully industry wise.

    But to sit up here and discount if she volunteers etc or gives back isnt fair. She does give. She donated a huge portion of her M.A.C sales to domestic violence causes and she also drops money on the Food Bank of NYC each and every Thanksgiving. Not everything has to be publicized.

    Real G's move in silence like lasagna.

    Do you Onika. Congrats

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I just said this. Get out of my mine.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Smooches!

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Plain ridiculous .

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Who dis woman ......

  • LeBrick James

    Nicki Minaj on the cover huh?

    What, Fetty Wap wasn't available?

  • MissHarlem

    I mean are trying to make me give you my retirement savings?!! ??

  • harley_quinn2.0

    There's five names listed under Nicki's in a smaller print. I'm assuming those folks got covers too.

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    There are 100 people on this list. Everybody on the list is not supposed to have influenced you personally. To be honest, it's likely nobody has influenced you but they have influenced somebody.

    If you don't like this list, make your own and post it on your bedroom wall.

  • JennyJazzhands

    I had forgotten Nicki Minaj was a thing. Does she still make music? Bless her little heart.

  • BRuhman_Vista

    Maybe it's just me, but that cover photo (the facial expression) looks somewhat "trannyish" ????

  • iWasteTime

    She may not be for everyone but what she has done, is doing and may do in the future is influential to some. To be in a male dominated field where she demands and receives respect and is a sought after commodity is influential in and of itself. Not to mentions her charities, money she donates and legit caring for those who are less fortunate.

  • Yoni

    She favors Cynthia Bailey here.

  • MissHarlem

    ?? I'm over here like huh what kind of wack ass mentality am I seeing

  • MissyJ

    Watching my 600lb life....... Chile they driving to Texas and this heffa just pissing on towels as they drive

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Yup!!!!
    How are you going to give to DV associations ( if it's true ) and then stand by and defend a child molester?
    My bro molests a child , he's dead to me .

  • Vonn

    That's my show.

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Conflict of interest on Wayne writing about Nicki?

    Diane von Furstenberg wrote the blurb about Karlie Kloss. Designer and a model.
    Mario Andretti wrote the blurb about Lewis Hamilton. Two racers.
    Ziggy Marley wrote the one on Usain Bolt. Two Jamaicans.
    Bill and Melinda Gates wrote the one about Mark Zuckerburg and Priscilla Chan. Two rich ass tech couples.

    What do folks WANT man. Jesus. Im out. I cant take yall some days.

  • Saharabutnotdry

    A la Astronaut ?

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Naw they just on the list. I aint eem notice em.

    And you see who wrote his blurb? Another designer. Donatella. I caint man.

  • LeBrick James

    I guess it depends on what your definition of "music" is.

  • sunni_daze

    Hmmmm, as I side eye Time Mag

  • iWasteTime

    Please don't go.
    They need to do their googles.
    You can't help everyone

  • Just Keya

    What? Whole car smelling like pee. Just nasty.

  • LeBrick James

    That's not even living.

    That's just existing, barely.

  • Saharabutnotdry

    Azz azz azz azz azz ... Kiss my azz and my anus ...
    I like her ratchet music when I'm mad . Guilty!

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Nevermind. He's on the list but he doesn't have a cover.

  • MissHarlem

    I don't get it. Shit is black and white. Get out your feelings ?

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    I just want to be in the same tax bracket as the Gates' and Chan-Zuckerburgs ?

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    My issue is some folks are complaining about Nicki would probably be the same ones complaining if there wasn't a black person. You have to pick a side. Just because the black person they chose isn't good enough to you... so what?

  • harley_quinn2.0

    AKA the cryptkeeper

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    W H A T?

  • Saharabutnotdry

    +1 , and their REAL silent moves .

  • It’s Taurus Season

    Donatella look a sunburned Fire Marshall Bill MESS you hear me? And she was once a DROP dead BEAUTIFUL woman.

  • Renee Bee

    This is some bull's excrement! (B.S.)
    (Sucks teeth)
    (Side eyeing like WTF) ?

  • harley_quinn2.0

    Gorgeous. I just don't understand.

  • MotherOfDragons, GetOffMyENuts

    Lasagna...mmmm...

  • PettyEyezPrime

    New post on bad gal riri gifting rich folks

  • melissaisasnob

    Trannies overdo makeup and feminization. So when women distort themselves to the point of over-feminization, they look like trannies. TLDR: Don't go overboard you will look like a tranny.

  • Renee Bee

    Now you are going too damn far. Too far, I tell you. Lol.

  • iWasteTime

    lmaooooo!!!!!

  • SameoleJ

    I was just confused as to why it was listed that way.......didn't bother reading the rest of the list, cause MY "Reading AIN'T Fundamental" today!!

    And FYI, you gonna take us and you gonna like it!! LOL

  • SameoleJ

    ION like her......that is all!! LOL

  • SameoleJ

    Ain't Goo-Gah-Lin today!! LOL

  • SameoleJ

    Coming out lasagna ain't so silent.........all that cheese!! :kona:

  • SameoleJ

    She did try, but the judge he has is so sick of him that everything people said in his defense came out as-----Charlie Brown teacher

  • 88

    It is truly tragic to see Black Women in a state where a black woman with a fake behind and a blonde wig can be considered the most influential among you.

  • SameoleJ

    Speaking of DVF, was in thrift store and came across an overnight bag.....young in front of me saw it and her friend said...That is cute...She said, Ion know no DVF and walked away. DVF is in my closet to the tune of $3.95. Psssssh

  • MissyJ

    EGGS ACTLY.. He husband had to throw out her towel.. he holding with with fanga tips like TF I'm posed to do with this... told her I can't walk in the gas station holding this!

  • SameoleJ

    It is truly tragic that you are never happy.......at least not on here!! Joy.....go get you some!! Life is too short and stress and unhappiness sneak up on you like a fox in a hen house.

  • Monday

    Tell people to kill themselves

  • Monday

    She is the worse example for a black woman. She doesn't represent a full independent strong black woman, she represent a black THOT. I have nooo respect for her , I don't care how she sells herself or her music, she is a degrading black woman. Sarafee did well leaving her

  • A-way29

    Please explain the positive influence she has placed on our community as well as other communities. Which person here has told their sister, daughter or friend to inspire to be like this young lady here?

    Please help me out.

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    ONIKA - I ROOTED FOR YOU...BUT YOU LET ME DOWN. MAYBE I OUTGREW YOU; MAYBE YOU CHANGED...CONGRATS ON YOUR COVER, BUT THAT'S ALL I GOT!

  • A-way29

    How has she been influential?

  • what?why

    Washed up with a criminal background! Time is washed up and needs to close shop.

  • Just Keya

    What do folks want? It looks to me they need to want to not be so bitter and go live life the best way they can. And right about now they need a huge FOH. Shyt.

  • Renee Bee

    Hey hey hey Jen-Nay! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.
    You are getting lost in the garden now. So many posters. ??

  • Sincerity7

    ...

  • GrapeCrush

    I don't think she's necessarily washed up but she aint Time Mag cover worthy either.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Knew of someone who was so large only had a bowel movement 2x a month...in a tub. Now, I do realize that there are some here who aren't large and still have a BM only 1x a week. Cleanse that colon. Grab you some 3 Ballerina Tea...excra strenf ?.

  • BRuhman_Vista

    Exactly ?

  • Amel

    Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!? Who the fuck has she influenced.

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    Some folks just don't know. Don't take it to heart. Thanks for the knowledge you do drop that some may not be privy to. Caring is sharing ?.

  • AnonymousRose

    tried to care...but............

  • http://yeuphonic.com @yeuphonic

    ? say that! Some say her influence was helpful in her brother's pedophilic grooming of young girls.

  • 88

    Essentially you are asking me to turn the other cheek to the image of Black women being demeaned and degraded, unfortunately I can't do that for you. I have too much self respect and respect for Black women to let it go down like that.

  • SameoleJ

    No, I am asking you to instead of speaking negatively all of the time, find some joy in life or the things that are going on. Yes, we are happy that a seemingly strong (as I don't know you personally) black man takes pride and wants the best for black women, but it is not always the message that distances the listeners, it is often the tone in which it is given. Them selecting Nicki is just that THEM SELECTING her.......whereas I promote black women like Michelle O.; therefore I counter there action with a more positive one. But #EH

  • Pettyville123

    We are so lost as a PEOPLE

  • A-way29

    People, this sister is demonically possessed. Who do you think Roman is? She told you straight up that he lives inside her and speaks to her. You brush it off because of her nutty personality. "Oh. She just crazy girl" They all go on record (songs/interviews) and tell you they haunted by demons, talk to devils, experience feeling something come inside. You missed it. Time to wake up for real:

    This is not made up fairy tell..like the old folks say...that's the Devils music

  • Neverendingstory

    Ole crooked clavicle Heffa

  • Miany

    At the bare figgon minimum, you gone peel yo big azz out the car and go relieve your damn self

  • Baron

    Uh...hm...ok. Somebody needs to get back to the tent meeting revival.

  • A-way29

    Typical response from someone who's sleep.

  • Baron

    No, rather a typical response from someone who is sane. You probably think she's part of the Illuminati and sold her soul to the devil for fame.

  • A-way29

    Thank you, I am sane.

    What I typed is not speculation. A simple YouTube search of Nikki talking about Roman is all you need to watch it come directly from her mouth... As well as other artists admitting explicitly that they sold their souls...you won't believe because you are decieved

  • Baron

    Sounds like propaganda to me.

  • A-way29

    I'm going to take a wild guest that you're going to make fun of the idea of me telling you to check YouTube. Am I right?

  • A-way29

    K. Check for yourself my brother. Research.

  • A-way29

    I don't think she's part of illuminati - that's deeper than what most folks think..that deals with satanic bloodline.

    She's a puppets...she needs prayer nonetheless...we all do.

  • Panther Charleston

    Well, this bout the blackest I ever seen her look.

  • Baron

    Ok. I'll check it out. For real

  • Monday

    I foegot about that..

    Seee no good influence

  • Monday

    She is probably dead. Maybe a clone, heard we all have one.. Celebrities have many.

    ODB did spoke about it before they kill him

  • Monday

    He created Nicki Minaj

  • Monday

    So Obama couldn't male the cut om his last term??

  • Monday

    Her brother is a pedophile and she is always on Ellen with little girls imitating her...

    When Nicki said : "I don't like to wear a bra..." That was the last I watched Ellen. Ellen is also a bad influence to young girl.

    Hollywood love this so she might be winning for them ?

  • let the truth be known

    How is she influential? If so, to whom?

  • Shawn Williams

    But Lil Kim had cotton candy hair before nikki.

  • Shawn Williams

    Her brother is a rapist and she is supporting him...how is that influential? I swear this girl has the greatest PR team I've ever seen in my life. Meek is washed up, Wayne is washed up, nikki spazz out at almost every award show and her family is a hot mess and yet she makes the cover of Time magazine. I really do believe that they want the worst of the worst to be our black leader/ role models.

  • A-way29

    Alright, cool. Lmk

  • starbright9449

    Died? That ain't all. Why her collar bone look like that?? Please tell me I'm not the only one.

  • Benita Renee’

    Is this a joke?

  • Benita Renee’

    My thoughts exactly!

  • quetzalstar

    miley and taylor are more influential but they put harriet on the 20$ bill just like this cover. its cuz BLM

  • SameoleJ

    Um, yeah I know that, even though technically her mammy and pappy did and then Deb had a part in it.....but that wasn't the basis of my question. I am talking about how it is written on the cover, but it apparently is because he wrote the opening statement about her for this.

  • SpiceGirl

    but in OTHER news......her brother has BOINKED a 12 yr old....smmfh

  • Shira Harding-James

    Beautiful woman... But what's going on with her neck and collar bone area?
