This summer I had the pleasure of seeing Nicki Minaj in concert and it pushed my love for her over the edge. She’s quite an unconventional role model, but I’d be fooling myself if I called myself conventional. Here are some reasons why Onika Tanya Maraj (aka my queen, Nicki Minaj) is my #WCW today and every day.
Ugh… have you seen her?? It should honestly be illegal for a human to be as sexy as Nicki Minaj is. She has such a unique look with her ever-changing hair colors and outlandish style keeping us on our toes but always staying true to herself.
And we can’t forget how amazing she looked at the VMA’s this year.
She is crazy good at what she does This girl has got more talent than she’s got booty (and that’s a lot) and is breaking records all across the map.
Now we all know she can rap but she’s also got an amazing singing voice some people forget about, a great song that shows off her vocal depth is ‘Grand Piano.’
She also recently proved she can act as well with her part in “The Other Woman” and “Ice Age: Continental Drift”. What can’t she do??
Nicki started as an underground artist from a very bad home before Lil Wayne discovered her and she became the world’s most successful female rapper. She became the first female solo artist to have seven singles simultaneously charting on the Billboard Hot 100. Two albums in, countless hits later, and even a gig on American Idol as a judge, Nicki has not stopped proving herself.
Always sticking up for the ladies At her concert that I went to, she stopped between songs and gave a brief inspirational speech to all the women in the audience. She told us to stay in school, get our own careers, our own houses, and our own damn cars so that we never feel like we ever have to stay with a man because they provide for us. Yeah, you tell ’em. She then went on to give a message to all the men in the audience telling them that they better be treating their women like queens. Preach girl.
Relatable I know, I know, it seems like Nicki Minaj is the last person us normal people could relate to. But because of her past and poor upbringing, her lyrics have a lot that her fans connect with personally. She has worked almost every possible job – from Red Lobster to a secretary – before she made it. I don’t know about you guys, but seeing her work it on stage and knowing that she was once serving people their crab cakes makes it easier to go to work everyday in hopes that I can do it too.
Nicki Minaj is just so great. I strive to one day have a tenth as much confidence as she carries herself with. She’s my inspiration and that’s why Nicki is my #WCW.
