Nicki Minaj opened up about her recent dealings in her personal and professional life in a interview with New York Times Magazine.
Minaj opened up about Meek Mill and Drake, and Miley Cyrus after her iconic phrase from the MTV Video Music Awards "Miley, What's Good?" With Minaj being in the middle of the beef between her boyfriend Meek Mill and longtime friend Drake, people want to know how she feels.
"They’re men, grown-ass men,’’ she said. ‘‘It’s between them.’’ How does it make you feel, I ask? "I hate it," she said. ‘‘It doesn’t make me feel good. You don’t ever want to choose sides between people you love. It’s ridiculous. I just want it to be over."
Minaj also spoke to New York Times Magazine about her comments made towards Cyrus during the VMAs earlier this year.
"The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls," Minaj said. "You're in videos with black men, and you're bringing out black women on your stages, but you don't want to know how black women feel about something that's so important? Come on, you can't want the good without the bad. If you want to enjoy our culture and our lifestyle, bond with us, dance with us, have fun with us, twerk with us, rap with us, then you should also want to know what affects us, what is bothering us, what we feel is unfair to us. You shouldn't not want to know that."
After being asked these questions, the reporter also talked about the beef between Lil' Wayne and Birdman, and asked Minaj if she thrives off drama. Minaj felt disrespected and acted accordingly.
"That’s disrespectful,’’ Minaj said, drawing herself up in the chair. "Why would a grown ass woman thrive off drama?"
"What do the four men you just named have to do with me thriving off drama?’’ Minaj asked. ‘‘Why would you even say that? That’s so peculiar. Four grown-ass men are having issues between themselves, and you’re asking me do I thrive off drama? That’s the typical thing that women do. What did you putting me down right there do for you? Women blame women for things that have nothing to do with them. I really want to know why — as a matter of fact, I don’t. Minaj stated.
"Can we move on, do you have anything else to ask?’’ she continued. ‘‘To put down a woman for something that men do, as if they’re children and I’m responsible, has nothing to do with you asking stupid questions, because you know that’s not just a stupid question. That’s a premeditated thing you just did.’’
Minaj left her chair and left the interview, but at least we have a better insight on how she feels, and how much she respects herself.
