Nicki Minaj reminds women they’re entitled to a climax in her new interview with Cosmo.
We’ve seen Nicki Minaj stand up for her right to be seen as a rapper before a “female rapper,” and now she’s standing up for her right to equality in the bedroom as well. In an interview with Cosmo magazine, Nicki expressed her opinion that all women should expect their partner to give them orgasms, and should never settle for less.
“I demand that I climax,” she said. “I think women should demand that. I have a friend who’s never had an orgasm in her life. In her life! That hurts my heart. It’s cuckoo to me. We always have orgasm interventions where we, like, show her how to do stuff. We’ll straddle each other, saying, ‘You gotta get on him like that and do it like this.’ She says she’s a pleaser. I’m a pleaser, but it’s fifty-fifty.”
Later on, Minaj reflected on the break-up that inspired parts of her new album, The Pinkprint.
“I didn’t [set out] to write a personal album, but The Pinkprint came at a very crucial time in my life,” she shared. “I realized that people can up and take off at any given moment. As women, we are vulnerable and emotional, and that’s OK.
I had to learn quickly that if you don’t have a sense of self, you can be destroyed by a man. You can be destroyed by a relationship. I had to ask myself, ‘Who am I? Is this good enough?’ I had to approve of myself and my skills.”
