The latest issue of The New York Times is graced by none other than Nicki Minaj. Since releasing The Pinkprint last December she’s headlined her own tour and the announcement was recently made about her starring and executive-producing her own comedy on ABC Family.
In the cover story for the issue, she talked briefly about empowering women, her issue with Miley using black men and women without trying to understand their struggles, Lil Wayne and Birdman’s problems and more. The interview ended very abruptly, however, when the NY Times reporter asked Nicki if she “thrives off of drama” in reference to Meek and Drake’s recent issues, given Nicki’s close relationship with both. Nicki became infuriated, rightfully so, and ended the interview with the quickness. Read some excerpts from the interview below and check out the full cover story here.
It was getting dark outside when I asked about Drake, Meek, Wayne and Williams. Minaj hadn’t turned on lights, so she was in shadow. ‘‘They’re men, grown-ass men,’’ she said. ‘‘It’s between them.’’ How does it make you feel, I ask? ‘‘I hate it,’’ she said. ‘‘It doesn’t make me feel good. You don’t ever want to choose sides between people you love. It’s ridiculous. I just want it to be over.’’
‘‘What do the four men you just named have to do with me thriving off drama?’’ she asked. ‘‘Why would you even say that? That’s so peculiar. Four grown-ass men are having issues between themselves, and you’re asking me do I thrive off drama?’’
