My favorite singers are Janis Joplin and Madonna, and I added Nicki Minaj recently. Last week, I came across a video where Nicki and Madonna were having a conversation. Nicki is very unique and fresh. On the contrary, Madonna is a mature adult and has the air of the Queen of Pop. I love both of them.
I’ve been listening to Nicki’s music while driving these days. She is a rapper. Although rap music isn’t my taste, I like her music, especially her voice. It’s amazing that she can sing the rap part clearly in spite of the very quick tempo. I thought it might be a good exercise for English pronunciation, or for my face muscle. So, I’m practicing one of her songs “Starships”, though I mind a little that it includes some dirty words. It’s very difficult for me to pronounce the rap part very quickly. I wonder if native speakers can sing these songs easily.
