Nicki Minaj Addresses the Meek Mill and Drake Beef, Miley Cyrus and More in NYT Magazine

Nicki Minaj makes an appearance on The New York Times Magazine.  She finally addressed the beef between Meek Mill and Drake, Lil Wayne vs. Birdman, and Miley Cyrus. Nicki was very candid as usual and wanted to set the record straight. Read the highlights below:

ON MILEY CYRUS: “The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls. 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.”

ON BODY IMAGE: “Back in the day, in hip-hop, the thick girl was glorified. Now the rappers are dating skinny white women. So it’s almost like, ‘Wait a minute, who’s going to tell the thick black girls that they’re sexy and fly, too?’”

ON COMPARISONS TO LADY GAGA: “I don’t even want to discuss that. That’s so old to me

ON HER ESTRANGED FATHER: “He was just abusive. I would always hear him yelling and cursing, always. And it made me feel it was the way to interact, because that’s how I saw him interacting.”

ON HER RELATIONSHIPS: “Since I was 15, I came out of one relationship and went into another relationship. In my relationships, I’ve been told, ‘You don’t have to work that much.’ But I can’t stop working, because it’s bigger than work to me. It’s having a purpose outside any man.”

ON MEEK MILL VS. DRAKE: “They’re men, grown-ass men. It’s between them,” she said, adding, “I hate it. 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.”
