Nicki Minaj says a lot in her upcoming interview with Elle magazine.
One of the topics she tackles is the fact that she's single for the first time since she was 15 years old - despite what Eminem says.
Minaj said, "I remember feeling like I could do anything at one time in my life and somewhere along the line, I just started second guessing myself for whatever reason. As soon as I realized that I could actually live and breathe, and eat and sleep, and walk and talk, without having a boyfriend, something clicked in me."
Nicki continued, "Becoming single was one of the things that made me feel strong and powerful. The fact that I am a young woman who doesn't need a man for money. I don't need a man for a job. I've never had to f--k for beats. I've never had to f--k for a record deal. I don't have those pressures."
Minaj talks about other subjects in the interview including Meek Mill's judge, working with Karl Lagerfeld and trap music.
