Nicki Minaj Says A Lot of Modern Day Girls Are Prostitutes – You Give Them A Couple Thousand Dollars & You Can Sleep With Them
Emerging from a four-year hiatus, rapper/actress Nicki Minaj is opening up about female sexuality, love, and her new lease on life. The 35-year-old talent is not only appreciating being a single woman (she was most recently linked to rapper Nas and prior to him, Meek Mill), she’s speaking candidly about women exchanging their beauty for a few coins. See a few excerpts below.
On her hiatus:
I went through a moment where I got to know myself again, and then I went through a moment where I got to know myself as the rapper again. And then I locked [myself] in the studio, and I didn’t want to leave.
Her newfound single status after years of long term relationships:
Spiritually, I’ve experienced more growth in the last six months of my life, of my career, than I have in the last eight years…it’s the first time in my life I’ve ever been single.
On reclaiming her time and power:
I remember feeling like I could do anything at one time in my life, and somewhere along the line, I just started second guessing myself, for whatever reason. As soon as I realized that I could actually live and breathe, and eat and sleep, and walk and talk without having a boyfriend, something clicked in me.
Becoming single was one of the things that made me feel strong and powerful. The fact that I am a young woman who doesn’t need a man for money. I don’t need a man for a job. I’ve never had to fuck for beats. I’ve never had to fuck for a record deal. I don’t have those pressures. I get up when I want, shop when I want.
How she feels about women who use their sexuality in exchange for gifts from men:
I don’t really know how to say that without being offensive. Maybe I was naïve, but I didn’t realize how many girls were modern-day prostitutes. Whether you’re a stripper, or whether you’re an Instagram girl—these girls are so beautiful and they have so much to offer. But I started finding out that you give them a couple thousand dollars, and you can have sex with them. I was like, ‘Yikes.’ It’s just sad that they don’t know their worth. It makes me sad as a woman. And it makes me sad that maybe I’ve contributed to that in some way.
On the Philadelphia judge denying Meek Mill’s second appeal for release:
I wouldn’t wish that on anybody, but I’m also not gonna bad-mouth a judge…because anything I say stays on the record…I know that when I went there pleading for his freedom, I know that she [Judge Brinkley] spoke to me and was very sweet and maternal, and we both cried in her chambers, and she gave him another chance. So I don’t know what’s going on.
On how she’s bored with trap music:
The truth of the matter is, trap has taken over so much that even our New York rappers are doing nothing but trap songs, because they feel that that’s the way to make it. They’re rapping like people from down south.
