Nicki Minaj is one of the most complex people in music, and that’s a good thing.
The rapper, singer, entrepreneur, and TV producer is constantly doing things to play around with conventions. Whether she’s trolling her own fans with a “surprise” album release or calling out sexism in interviews, the New York born star keeps you on your toes and we totally love her for it.
This month Nicki is appearing on the cover if Marie Claire and she looks STUNNING.
This wouldn’t be a Nicki Minaj interview, however, if she didn’t have some totally brilliant points to make and this is no different.
One thing that Nicki spoke about was the double standards when it comes to nudity and nude selfies and, tbh, we applaud it.
Discussing the differences between about the way that different women are viewed by the media, Nicki had this important thing to say.
We really applaud Nicki for talking about this double standard.
If you can recall, there was LOADS of controversy when Nicki’s “Anaconda” video dropped. Indeed, Mrs. Osbourne said on the talk that she felt the video looked like.
Similarly, Nicki has previously spoken out about the double standards when it came to the nominations for the MTV VMAs last year when “Anaconda” didn’t get nominated for Video of the Year and “Miley, what’s good?”
Nicki also opened up to Marie Claire about the violence that is gripping the country.
Like Beyoncé did with her movie Lemonade, Nicki said that it was important to remember the black women who are mourning the loss of their husbands, fathers, and brothers.
We love that Nicki is speaking out about these issues, and is giving a voice to important things that affect black women. We absolutely adore her, and couldn’t love her more.
