Nicki Minaj went off on a critic who accused her of having hypocritical views on female sexuality.
In her recent cover story for Elle magazine, the Queen rapper addressed one of her biggest concerns as an artist who sells sex appeal:
“I don’t really know how to say that without being offensive,” she told writer Devin Gordon. “Maybe I was naïve, but I didn’t realize how many girls were modern-day prostitutes. Whether you’re a stripper, or whether you’re an Instagram girl—these girls are so beautiful and they have so much to offer. But I started finding out that you give them a couple thousand dollars, and you can have sex with them […] It makes me sad as a woman. And it makes me sad that maybe I’ve contributed to that in some way.”
