Nicki Minaj: I Considered Killing Myself

By Daniel Gates


Nicki Minaj contemplated suicide, she tells Cosmopolitan.

In a cover interview with the magazine, the hip-hop superstar admits that just a few short years ago, things looked so bleak that she considered ending her life.

“I kept having doors slammed in my face. I felt like nothing was working,” recalls Minaj. “I had moved out on my own, and here I was thinking I’d have to go home.”

She continues, “It was just 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?'”


Fortunately, Minaj persevered, and things are looking brighter.
