‘I Didn’t Want Anybody To Think I Was Easy:’ Nicki Minaj Talks Sleeping With Rappers And Maintaining Her Dignity
Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne get pretty intimate in the music video for their new single “High School,” where the two are playing lovers. The rappers nailed their roles so well that it left many wondering whether or not the two have ever hooked up off-screen before. In a roundabout way, Nicki says no. During a recent interview with MTV’s Rap Fix, the 30-year-old entertainer discussed breaking into the rap world and maintaining her dignity.
“When I started being around Young Money, Wayne thought I was shy, but it wasn’t that I was shy, I just didn’t want anybody to think I was easy,” she confessed.
She went on to say that she hasn’t slept with any industry heads and offers advice to up-and-coming female emcees who are seeking to break into the entertainment world.
“No matter what my lyrics were saying, when I got around these guys, I was a prude, because I didn’t want anyone in this game to ever be able to say ‘I had sex with her’ or ‘when she needed a deal, she had to…’ No. And ‘til this day, not one single man in this industry can say that and I pride myself on that. That’s the only bit of advice I would give the up-and-coming female rappers. You could be as s*xy as you want, but just maintain your dignity around these guys.”
It seems like she’s offering some pretty sound advice. Would you agree?
