Nicki Minaj opens up about her past suicide thoughts
Nicki Minaj has said that before she had success in the music industry, she went through a dark period.
In November's issue of Cosmopolitan, the star, who has just featured on Willow Smith's new song, says that she considered suicide at one point:
"I kept having doors slammed on my face. I felt like nothing was working. I had moved out on my own, and here I was thinking I'd have to go home. It was one dead end after another. At one point, I was, like, 'What would happen if I just didn't wake up?' That's how I felt. Like maybe I should just take my life?"
The 'Super Bass' singer is well-known for her colourful fashion streak, but unlike Lady Gaga, Minaj admits to breaking character for comfort:
"I think Gaga is freakin' dope for that...But I can't be bothered. Give me my sweats. I like transforming from completely raggedy to 'Ahhh, I'm ready.' That transformation gives me a high."
