Covering Billboard’s Year in Music 2015 issue, Nicki Minaj revealed in an open interview all about her connection with her fans.
She explained: “Some fans are going to f**k with me for the rest of my life because they know where I came from. Fans know my struggle. How hungry I was. That I was not settling, I was not giving up. I was on everybody’s beat. I was ruthless.”
Speaking about the tragic death of Sandra Bland, she added: “This could have been me. I’m a sassy woman. I may have given a little bit of attitude to a police officer. I could have never come home.”
Nicki also touched on the current Presidential race in the US, and said of Hillary Clinton: “I suppoer her as a woman. Am I convinced that she should be the next president? I still want to be open-minded about everyone. Obviously, I identify with her struggles as a woman…”
And on Donald Trump: “There are points he has made that may not have been so horrible if his approach wasn’t so childish. But in terms of entertainment – I think he’s hilarious. I wish they could just film him running for president. That’s the ultimate reality show.”
