Nicki Minaj is on the cover of New York Times and the rapper is taking it back to the days when she was rocking the wildly coloured wigs!
In her interview she addressed her beef with Miley Cyrus as well as the beef between her man, Meek Mill and rapper Drake.
About Miley who she threatened at the MTV VMAs in September, Minaj schooled her on the struggle of black women
The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls. 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.
She also clears up talk about being abused by her father,
No. He was just abusive, I would always hear him yelling and cursing, always. And it made me feel it was the way to interact, because that’s how I saw him interacting. When I was younger, I thought that the only reason my mother didn’t leave my father was for financial reasons. From early on in my life, I looked at a woman not having her money as the biggest curse, now that I’m an adult, I realize that women stay whether a man’s rich or poor. It’s just a weakness.
The drama between Meek and Drake
They’re men, grown-ass men, it’s between them, I hate it, 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.’’
