The Passion of Nicki Minaj: The world’s biggest female rap superstar has meticulously crafted her own image — and maintained it with uncompromising control.” Read a sophisticated yet reflective portrait of Nicki Minaj, an attempt to look behind things as they appear, in The New York Times Magazine by Vanessa Grigoriadis. October 7, 2015.




features on power fm – Breakfast Club and beyond:


Press Conference: These twenty minutes go deeper than what we most here about her: the famous interview with Charlamagne Tha ‘God’ of the 105.1 Power fm Breakfast Club which has exclusively been published as a track on the special edition of Roman Reloaded in April 2012. Nicki talks about her self concept as a business woman in the pop-industry, her thoughts on having kids and being independent, her goals as a rapper and her vision for women’s education and our social power.

Breakfast Club I:”This is family right here”, Breakfast Club Interview 105,1 power fm, 2012:



Breakfast Club II: Women being critical and assertive and who deny to discuss their sexuality in public are perceived as judgemental and “bitchy” most of the time. Watch Nicki Minaj turn down that threat and take her right to be a powerful superstar at her second Breakfast Club Interview 105,1 power fm, 2013:




the Breakup: In 2014 Nicki and her longtime partner Safaree split up and ended their relationship after 10 years. As they never publicly celebrated their love due to career- related considerations, the breakup ironically becomes the occasion where certain journalists get to ask questions. Both, Nick and Safaree, show that this love is real and that they actually are really going through something. If you ever went through a breakup, you’ll recognize real, listening to them. Also, they both struggle with the tension of being loyal and feeling the need to stand their ground a show pride at the same time.

So, this is not gossip, but a sympathetic attestation that 1. a man can be the backbone to a women’s career and still be strong and proud, and 2. Nick is the kind and emotional person some of us want to see in her, and 3. the sexual performance of a rapper and their personal life are not the same. the former is part of their art, and this to me makes her even more amazing.
