November 9, 2010 5:40 PM ET

The ongoing rift between Nicki Minaj and Lil' Kim inspired Perez Hilton to ask Minaj who exactly are the female rappers she does get along with.

In the video, Minaj laughs uproariously before answering. "I love that question!" she says. "There are many female rappers that I get along with. There have been so many female rappers that have congratulated me and given me genuine love, from Trina, who is my darling, to Missy Elliott to Queen Latifah to Foxy Brown to Remy Ma. It goes on and on, and that's what people don't understand.

"People think that I'm the 'hated female rapper,' " she continues, gesturing air quotes. "But a lot of the girls have shown me a lot of love, and behind the scenes have said, 'Congratulations, keep up the good work.' Can't we all just get along?"

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
