In a new tell-all interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Nicki Minaj shared, among other things, a deep secret that most people would have forever buried.
The rapper talked about falling in love with a much older man as a teenager while she was at the prestigious Manhattan Performance-Art high school. She discovered she was pregnant, and eventually made a conscious decision to have an abortion. She remembered shortly after, feeling like she was going to die. She said;
“I thought I was going to die,” she admits. “I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through.
” She ended up having an abortion, a decision she says has “haunted me all my life,” though it was the right choice for her at the time. “It’d be contradictory if I said I wasn’t pro-choice.
I wasn’t ready. I didn’t have anything to offer a child.” She first rapped about the experience on a mixtape track called “Autobiography” she says she “didn’t expect anyone to hear.” Now the world is listening to every word she says very carefully: “Millions of people are gonna hear it. And you gotta watch everything you say — people find an issue with every fucking thing.”
I hope and pray that sharing this part of her life helps her get over , or at least ease up the guilt she feels. Guilt is such a powerful thing.
