Nicki Minaj reportedly clashed with her former maid at her home in Hollywood earlier this morning. According to TMZ, Minaj fired the maid a few weeks ago after she took a photo of the rapper taking out the trash and asked her to autograph it. The maid returned to Minaj's house demanding not to be "treated like an animal," which resulted in the performer allegedly shouting, "I'll show you how to treat someone like an animal. Get the fuck out of my house!"

One source suggests that Minaj actually mistook a different maid for the one who was fired. Either way, the maid has reportedly filed a battery report with police, claiming that Minaj and her boyfriend got physical with her when ejecting her from the house.

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
