Nicki Minaj takes to the latest cover of The FADER. The NY Rap goddess talks about what to expect from her upcoming album The Pink Print, success, the imfamous shade at the BET Awards, and the rap environment for women.
On her career:
“I think early on in my career, I was… I was… just a little bit crazy. I took everything personally. That’s just not good, and it’s not healthy.
I think one of my best attributes now, as a businesswoman and an artist and a professional person, is being able to think before I speak. I’ve learned that everything I think doesn’t necessarily need to be stated.”
“I was making a point to say that the business kills so many people and we don’t even realize it. I can only imagine how many people in this business have died because they may not have wanted to… to be embarrassed publicly. We care so much about what the world thinks that we don’t live, really.”
