After a four-year hiatus, Nicki Minaj recently released her highly anticipated fourth studio album, “Queen,” which she deemed to be her personal “best.”
However, since its release, the self-proclaimed Barbie has found herself in the middle of a few altercations, in rehashing the claims and allegations made throughout her musical hiatus. Although a few fans believe their Queen should never stoop to the level of those beneath her, she said she’s had enough.
In a recent post-Queen Radio interview with Beats 1’s Ebro Darden, Minaj revealed that she’s sick of being treated like a Barbie – an emotionless object, who can’t relate and is not allowed to defend herself.
“Even people who don’t like me, they treat me like I’m a Barbie,” Minaj told Darden in the interview on Beats 1. “One minute, people tear me down, and then when I come down to the level, they tell me I’m supposed to be on another level. It’s always selective…People can say anything about my looks, this and that. But if I go to the next bitch, I’m a terrible person.”
At the end of the day, Minaj said she goes through things just like everyone else, from insecurities to heartbreak.
“I’ve broken down in tears on the radio about my personal life,” she said. “I’ve gone through a couple breakups and it’s difficult. If you don’t commit fully, you may not understand it. Every breakup feels like a death, it feels like mourning. I still have feelings and had to go through the natural progression of transitioning from being heartbroken to being myself again… Never in a million years would I look at people like they’re beneath me in any way. I’m going through the same stuff — heartbreak, insecurity, rediscovering certain things in my spiritual life.”
As she continued about her desire to strengthen her spiritual life, she also, once again, shut down rumors about an ongoing feud with Bronx-bred raptress, Cardi B.
“Give me a fucking break,” Minaj said of the gossip. “I didn’t know Cardi and I had an issue, but I guess we do, since you and other people are saying it. You’ve got to have thick skin. People say shit about me all the time. You can’t expect to be liked and loved all the time. Give me a break.”
