The top rapper tells Cosmo magazine that she considered taking her own life at one point.
“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,” she is quoted as saying in the November issue of the magazine. “Like, ‘Maybe I should just take my life?'”
Born Onika Tanya Maraj, Minaj says she felt that she didn’t have any options and that her career wasn’t going to come together.
“I kept having doors slammed in my face,” she says. “I felt like nothing was working. I had moved out on my own, and here I was thinking I’d have to go home,” she added.
But that’s all in the past as Minaj admits to Cosmo that she is living high right now, and predicts that her success and happiness will continue in the years to come.
