In possibly one of her most candid interviews to date, Nicki Minaj has opened up to Rolling Stone magazine about her mission to inspire girls to not only be sexy but smart too. She also talks about the decision to have an abortion at a young age and the impact it has had on her saying; I thought I was going to die. I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through. [It’s] haunted me all my life. It’d be contradictory if I said I wasn’t pro-choice. I wasn’t ready. I didn’t have anything to offer a child
Interestingly, Nicki also speaks about her verse on Kanye West’s track; Monster explaining how it was born from a rant.
In the interview, she expresses how she feels about Black artists in a racist society – a topic that is on the tip of everyone’s tongue right now.
Nicki claims she wants people to understand her better and by listening to her recent album; The PinkPrint, she believes they can – they can glimpse her past, something she has been private about until now.
