You can count Lil' Kim among the people confused – to put it mildly – by Nicki Minaj's religious-themed performance
at Sunday's Grammy Awards.
"I don't know what that was. I'm pretty sure I feel the same way everybody else feels right about now," Kim, 37, said Wednesday night on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live
. (Watch the clip below.)
But then Kim got a little more blunt in her appraisal of the 29-year-old rapper. "If you have to make a song called 'Stupid Hoe,' you must be a stupid hoe," Kim said after host Andy Cohen told her got many questions from viewers about her thoughts on Minaj.
Minaj has not responded to Kim's comments yet, but has said she's baffled by the fuss over her performance, "The Exorcism of Roman," in which she played the sinner
, set to the tune of her latest single, "Roman Holiday."
"I don't know what is the big issue?" she said Wednesday at a Viva Glam MAC cosmetics event in New York, reports the Associated Press. She also said the whole skit, which included dancing priests and a levitation stunt, was from a movie she's writing.
"You know how people write plays and movies? That's what I did. I wrote that and I gave the world a tiny little preview of what was to come," she said.
