Nicki Minaj is this month’s cover of New York Times magazine and she had a lot to say. Primarily, she discussed her and Miley Cyrus’ apparent ‘beef’ and explained her actions at the MTV Video Music Awards.

“The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls,” the musician said in a cover story for The New York Times Magazine’s Culture Issue. “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.”
These statements are very true. Nicki previously implied that if she was another type of artist, she would have been nominated for the Best Music Video award, and Cyrus’ response was to say Nicki was not a very nice person, instead of considering her words.

Minaj was very open in the interview and didn’t shy away from questions about her current boyfriend Meek Mill and Drake’s current feud. She said that she didn’t have anything to do with it because they are both grown men, and when asked if she liked drama, she did not hesitate in calling the interviewer out for the rude question.
Personally, I love that Minaj did not stand for any of the interviewer’s unnecessary questions and was afraid to end the interview early. Nicki has and will always be a boss b*tch.
