Miley Cyrus is the youngest of the two. This pop singer, songwritter and actress was born in Franklin, Tennessee in 1992.

Nicki Minaj is a trinitarian-born (1982) hip-hop and pop singer, and as Miley Cyrus, a songwriter and actress. Minaj moved from Trinidad to New York when she was 5. After a brief spell with the rap quartet "The Hoodstars", Nicki released her mixtape "Playtime is Over" in 2007 and the following year was named Female Artist of the Year at the Underground Music Awards. However, it was her album "Pink Friday" which granted her wide popularity, reaching number-one in the US in February 2011. Her following album "Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded" debuted at number one of the US Billboard 200.
As in the case of Cyrus, Nicki has also been praised and criticized by her original and sexy outfits and performances. She has been involved in several public controversies.

Nicki Minaj has had feuds with other singers such as Lil' Kim, Foxy Brown and Taylor Swift. Minaj is famed for changing her image using costumes, wigs and cosmetics and is notorious (almost as much as her bottom), to the extent that some called her the "black Lady Gaga". Nicki has acted in three movies and is preparing a TV comedy series based on her life. Her singing career continues to be very successful.
