Nicki Minaj: Weird, Not a Whore Bag

by at . Comments

In the March 2011 issue of BlackBook, Nicki Minaj aims to get two things straight:

  1. It's cool to be weird.
  2. She is not a whore bag.

How are these topics broached? What does Nicki think of Lady Gaga? We've excerpted responses from her interview with the magazine below.

On building her career: “I had no money, I had no one to call, and I was out on my own. I also had the burden of not wanting to tell my mother that I was out of a job, and could I come back home? Besides faith in God, the only thing that got me through that time was the fear of what would happen to my family if I didn’t make it. I remember thinking, I don’t know if this is ever going work but I’m going to give it one final try.”

On comparisons to Lady Gaga: “We both do the awkward, non-pretty thing. What we’re saying - what I’m saying, anyway - is that it’s okay to be weird. And maybe your weird is my normal. Who’s to say? I think it’s an attitude we both share.”

On flirting: “I’m not the type to be talking to a random dude in the club. Unless I know him, I don’t even want to be introduced to him, because it always turns into me being perceived as the ultimate whore-bag. I remember one time I saw a guy, someone famous, who was at one of my parties. I kissed him on the cheek and went to my seat, and they put up a story that me and him left together that night and went to a hotel.”
