Nicki Minaj Does Something For the First Time In 20 Years

These men couldn't test her even if their name was Pop Quiz. Nicki Minaj opened up to Elle Magazine about being single for the first time since she was 15 years old. "It’s the first time in my life I’ve 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. 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.” This revelation couldn't come at a better time considering her upcoming album - set to drop on August 10th - is titled Queen. "I went through a moment where I got to know myself again, and then I went through a moment where I got to know myself as the rapper again. And then I locked [myself] in the studio and I didn’t want to leave. Spiritually, I’ve experienced more growth in the last six months of my life, of my career, than I have in the last eight years.” Nicki has been in three high-profile relationships for as long as we've known her with Safaree Samuels, Meek Mill and most recently Nas. “Becoming single was one of the things that made me feel strong and powerful. The fact that I am a young woman who doesn’t need a man for money. I don’t need a man for a job. I’ve never had to f— for beats. I’ve never had to f— for a record deal. I don’t have those pressures. I get up when I want, shop when I want.” Ladies, leave your man at home! Being single has never looked so good thanks to Ms. Minaj.
