"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", the "Rich Sex" rapper, 35, told Elle for her July 2018 cover story.
The Grammy nominee said her newfound single status makes her "feel strong and powerful". I have never had to f**k for beats. I don't have those pressures. The end of their relationship inspired much of her album The Pinkprint.
The publication mentioned that Minaj hasn't been single since she was just 15 years old. In a recent tweet, she called Queen "my greatest work to date". "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". I went through a period where I got to know myself again, and then I went through another moment when I got to know myself as the rapper once again. And then I locked [myself] in my studio, and I did not want to leave. Spiritually, I have experienced more growth in the last six months of my life, my career, than I have in the last eight years'.
The "Chun-Li" artist also opens up about her sexuality. "But I'm also not gonna bad-mouth a judge who...because anything I say stays on the record". I can't look down on these girls. I'm more of, like, the snobby girl, like the 'Uh, what?' type of girl. "So I don't know what's going on", Minaj explained. It makes me sad as a woman. It wasn't until the beginning of last year ― when she and rapper Meek Mill broke up after two years of dating ― that she was on her own.
I can't wait to see you all on the NICKIHNDRXX TOUR with @1future!
