Nicki Minaj opened up about her love life not too long ago, and it looks like she is totally happy about being single. In an interview for ELLE magazine’s latest issue, the rapper shared that ‘It’s the first time in my life I have ever been single.’
‘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 publication mentioned that Minaj hasn’t been single since she was just 15 years old.
‘As soon as I realized that I could actually live and breathe, and eat and sleep, and walk and talk, without having a boyfriend, something clicked in me,’ the 35-year-old emcee went on.
She added that ‘Becoming single was one of the things that made me feel strong and powerful. The fact that I’m a young woman who does not need a man for money. I do not need a man for a job. I have never had to f**k for beats. I have never had to f**k for a record deal. I do not have those pressures. I get up when I want, shop when I want.’
Nicki Minaj’s upcoming album titled Queen is, according to her ‘my greatest work to date.’
‘I really think it is going to be the best album of the year. 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.’
We’re looking forward to listening to Queen!
