Nicki Minaj is queen when it comes to telling it like it is. Whether she's calling out Miley Cyrus on stage at the VMAs or putting her ex on blast, Nicki pulls no punches, and isn't that why we love her?
The self-proclaimed queen of rap graced the cover of the November issue of Marie Claire, and in the accompanying interview, spoke her mind about what it's like to be a black woman in the entertainment industry - specifically, the double standards she faces.
"When Kim Kardashian's naked picture came out, [Sharon Osbourne] praised it, and my fans attacked her for being such a hypocrite," Nicki explained. "So it wasn't trashy and raunchy when a white woman did it, but it was when a black woman did it? It's quite pathetic and sad, but that is my reality, and I've gotten accustomed to just shutting it down."
Preach it, sis! Minaj also touched on how inspiring it is to work with Beyonce, saying, "Every time Bey and I do something together, I see how women are inspired, and it has nothing to do with how we look."
"It has to do with how we are owning who we are and telling other women you should be the boss of your own career and the brains behind your life or your decisions or your art," she continued. "I just love that feeling."
The rapper also shared a few pics from her Marie Claire photoshoot on Instagram. Are you feeling it or nah? Check it out below.
