Nicki Minaj: ‘You Need No Man on This Planet at All, Period’

By

Nicki Minaj, who has not released an album since 2014 (which in retrospect doesn’t seem that long but seriously feels like a lifetime!!!!), is on the cover of the November Marie Claire Power Issue. And you better believe she has some wisdom to impart, reminding women everywhere again that they do not need a man to survive:

“Nowadays, I feel like [young women] see marrying into money—I think that’s a big thing now. I don’t want that to be a woman’s goal in life. I want your goal in life to be to become an entrepreneur, a rich woman, a career-driven woman. You have to be able to know that you need no man on this planet at all, period, and he should feel that, because when a man feels that you need him, he acts differently.”

Even if Nicki never releases an album ever again, she’ll for sure have a lucrative backup career in motivational speaking.
