I do not expect everyone to like me I know there is going to people that are going to hate me. I’m the same way, there are some artist who I love and there are some artist who I do not like. You have to at least give artists a chance but, I think with the girls a lot of people do not give us a chance because they might see us wearing a sexy outfit and they say, “this is a gimmick, blah, blah blah…” But, some of us actually have talent. That is a big part on why I decided to tone down my image because I want people to think about the talent first. I’m still going to be dressing and being crazy because I feel all girls should feel sexy. I’m not going to be over the top because it takes away from my talent. I do not want that any more.
Of course. Everything in that letter was right on point. For people to say that is not true, they are in denial. I’m booked every weekend. Everywhere I go there are 90% girls with the pink hair and the pink lipstick and the pink this and that. The point is girls want to be like someone they think is cute. Young girls, college girls want to have fun. “Word, Nicki is wearing those bangs, the pink weave, oh I want to try that.” Dudes want to look at someone they can lust over that looks a particular way. The girl they are forbidden to have. And when you put those together, you have a lot of angry female rappers cause they can not put it together.
I believe that rap is art. Its like people want art and life to coincide. Sometimes it doesn’t and some times you do not want it to. Sometimes you want to have an interview and not discuss anything about sex. That’s how i feel sometimes. I do put the block up because I feel like all people want to talk about is sex. I give you enough in my record. You know who I am and you can hear what I’m saying. It’s just too much.
I can not date. I do not date anybody. I’m too busy and so focused on getting the prize. I go weeks without speaking to my best friends and it hurts me. But, I know that in a couple of years when I’m buying them houses and cars they will understand. Right now its not about me dating. I sign boobs at my shows and I kiss the girls and all . That is the closest I get to dating.
Amber will be the first one to tell you that she was a stripper for years. I meet so many girls that has giving up hope and it goes to show you never know what God has in store for you or when its your time to shine. The only thing you can do is grind it out and believe there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Amber is dope, sexy and fashionable. She is also a humble person.
I think you can tell who is a smart person and who would sleep with someone to get to the top. I think if you have talent, you do not have to sleep with anybody. I never slept with anybody in the business and I do not plan to. I think people mistake sexual power with something nasty and sleazy. I do what the boys do. The boys take their shirts off , they work out, they feel on their crotch. Why don’t people talk about that? Did they sleep their way to the top? There are tons of gay executives in hip-hop, people aren’t talking about the fact that these dudes may be sleeping their way to the top, because I know a couple.
