These days Nicki Minaj is on top of the world, but that wasn't always the case. Minaj admits that she contemplated suicide when she was first trying to make it in the music business. What exactly would have driven Minaj to be suicidal?
In a recent interview Nicki Minaj admits that getting constant rejection letters from record labels made her question if she should quit not just music, but life:
It was one dead end after another... 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.
She certainly is much more upbeat these days, having really come a long way with her successful and budding music career. Nicki Minaj wants to win awards... fill her shelf full of Oscars and Grammys. She even is interested in settling down in her personal life.
Yes, the queen of the on-stage lap dance is contemplating a much more "mature" direction in her personal life.
[I] will be getting married and, a couple of years after that will have a bun in the oven.
Now that is quite the change of heart from someone who was contemplating taking their own life! Luckily for Nicki Minaj and her fans, she didn't do anything rash after receiving a pile of rejection letters. Instead she kept trying; now she can dream even bigger.
