Nicki Minaj discusses music and criticism

Nicki Minaj discussed some serious real-life topics during her Carpool Karaoke appearance. 

Nicki talked about the scrutiny she received as a female and said, “I think when you are a woman, and you’re in the public eye all the time if you’re not careful, you can become less confident because you’re being constantly scrutinized.”

Nicki continued, “I just don’t think it’s natural. It’s not natural for a human being to just always feel like everyone’s critiquing them.” 

Nicki also revealed the importance of taking a break from social media and removing the apps from her phone. She said, “Whenever I am off of social media, and I take that s*** off my phone, I have this enormous sense of peace. And then you realize what really matters.” 

Nicki’s latest collaboration is We Go Up, featuring. Fivio Foreign. In January, she released a song with Lil Baby called Do We Have a Problem?

The rapper says her fifth studio album is “coming very soon.”
