Nicki Minaj graces the cover of Rolling Stone, in which she gives a candid interview about everything from her breakup with longtime boyfriend Safaree Samuels to the intimate details of her life.
After touching on abortion in her latest album, The Pinkprint, Nicki reflects on terminating her teen pregnancy, which she says has “haunted me all my life.”
“I thought I was going to die. I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through,” she tells the mag. “It’d be contradictory if I said I wasn’t pro-choice. I wasn’t ready. I didn’t have anything to offer a child.”
Nicki also addressed the recent police violence against unarmed black men including Mike Brown and Eric Garner. “It’s sickening,” she says. “It’s gotten to the point where people feel like there’s no accountability: If you are law enforcement and you do something to a black person, you can get away with it.”
The fem-cee also feels sympathy for Kanye West. “He was the unofficial spokesman for hip-hop, and he got torn apart. And now you haven’t heard him speaking about these last couple things, and it’s sad,” she says. “Because how many times can you be made to feel horrible for caring about your people before you say, ‘F**k it, it’s not worth it, let me live my life because I’m rich, and why should I give a f**k?'”
The issue hits newsstands on Friday, January 2.
