The celebrity Nicki Minaj has spoken about the misconceptions surrounding her personality, stating that she is a vocal person and feels that it is essential to speak up on issues that matter to her. She recently voiced her opposition after her song Super Freaky Girl was nominated in the pop category instead of the rap category for the Grammys, despite her submitting it as a rap song.

Dazzling: As she posed for a stunning cover shoot with i-D magazine, she made some poignant remarks. She expressed her concern regarding the music industry’s tendency to favor new artists over those who have been deserving for years. Nicki also predicted that Black women will soon be nonexistent in the female rap genre. She clarified that this is not to discredit any artist, but to question why the goalpost only changes when it comes to her. According to Nicki, industry decision-makers don’t want artists they have a vested interest in to compete against her. She further raised her concern about the voting process where older white people may have to choose between her and other stars like Adele and Harry Styles in the pop categories.

Nicki has been nominated for Grammy awards 10 times, with only one nomination in the pop category for her collaboration with Ariana Grande and Jessie J. Most of her nominations have been in the rap category. Check out the complete article in i-D magazine.
