Nicki Minaj is best known for her rapping, but Nicki has also become well-known thanks to her insane body, sweet music videos, and outrageous interviews. If you’re a big fan of the rapper, then you’re going to want to read what she’s had to say. Here’s a recap of the top nine most outrageous interview quotes Nicki Minaj has said.
Number Nine: Nicki Minaj On Her Alter Ego
“Roman’s a little gay boy who lives in me. And every time I talk he sort of just appears and I tell him, ‘Roman, you know, stop it, you’ve gone mad, I tell you, mad.’ He’s an outlet to say what I need to say but sometimes don’t want to.”
Ever wondered who Roman was? Me too. I guess now we have our answer.
Number Eight: On Pregnancy
‘”We got so many girls right now having children and don’t even know the first thing to say to a child, but you’re having a child because ‘I want to keep this dude,’ or it just happened. Why are we never in control? Why are we stuck with a baby? Why are we always stuck on the welfare line? Why are we always stuck having to beg, borrow and steal to provide for our children? Why do we think it’s something wrong for waiting to have a baby, waiting until you’re 35 or 36 to have children? Technology has changed — you can wait! Have something to offer them.”
Preach, Nicki! This may be less outrageous and more just blatant honesty and words of wisdom. Keep it coming.
Number Seven: On The Lack Of Thick Girl Representation
“Back in the day, in hip-hop, the thick girl was glorified. Now the rappers are dating skinny white women. So it’s almost like, ‘Wait a minute, who’s going to tell the thick black girls that they’re sexy and fly, too?'”
I’ve never agreed more. Way to represent and spread that body appreciation talk, especially for thick, black girls because they are sexy, just like Nicki.
Number Six: On Whether She Thrives Off Drama (Meek Mill/Drake Beef, Lil Wayne/Birdman Beef)
‘”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? Why would you even say that?”
I would not want to be the interviewer that asked Nicki Minaj this question. She practically ate his head off before abruptly ending the interview.
Number Five: On Starships Haters
“I don’t give a rat’s ass if people don’t like ‘Starships.’ ‘Starships sold 7 million copies worldwide. That means 7 million motherfuckas love ‘Starships.’”
Didn’t like “Starships?” Guess who doesn’t care at all? Nicki Minaj. She made money off that, and at the end of the day you didn’t. In fact, you probably paid for it just to hate on it.
Number Four: On Miley Cyrus Appropriating Black Culture
‘”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.”
This deserves the slow clap more than anything I’ve ever seen. With all the cultural appropriation going on, it’s refreshing to see a woman from a culture being appropriated to speak honestly, calmly, and openly on the issue.
Number Three: On Respect In The Studio
“I want you to respect my talent. When I get in the studio whether I’m with Wayne or whether I’m with Jadakiss or whoever I’m wit I write my own sh*t. No matter what engineer I work with I know how the f**k I want my sound.”
Damn, Nicki. Demand that respect!
Number Two: On Monica Lewinsky And Not Selling Yourself Short
“People say ‘Why do you call yourself Lewinsky? Oh my gosh she is so degrading herself right now oh my god why is she calling herself that?!’ I felt like Monica Lewinsky took a crazy L. I felt like she was in a position to do something big but she didn’t have the smarts to use her power. And I think females do that all the time. So Lewinsky stands for the chick that’s that close to the president. I’m that close to Lil Wayne. It’s up to me now to use my intelligence to get to the next step. Everything is a stepping stone. Everything is a tool.”
I’ve honestly never been so inspired by Monica Lewinsky until I heard Nicki comment on her. Who knew she could be so inspirational?
Number One: On Donald Trump
“There are points he has made that may not have been so horrible if his approach wasn’t so childish. But in terms of entertainment — I think he’s hilarious. I wish they could just film him running for president. That’s the ultimate reality show.”
Although it would be the ultimate reality show, I think the more outrageous part of this quote is that Nicki claims the Donald made some good points?? Excuse me, what?!
There you have it, Nicki fans and haters. All the most outrageous interview quotes the queen has ever blessed us with. Hope you enjoyed!
