Nicki Minaj, 32, has put on a brave face and become a rap goddess, despite her troubled past.

Nicki Minaj’s Abortion: Rapper Opens Up In ‘Rolling Stone’ Interview
Nicki revealed that her first love was an older man from Queens, who she dated while attending a performing arts high school in Manhattan. When she found out she was pregnant, she made the hard decision to have an abortion.
“I thought I was going to die,” the “Anaconda” rapper says to Rolling Stone. “I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through.”
Nicki claims that the decision has “haunted me all my life”, though she believes at the time it was the right choice. “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,” Nick continues.
Nicki rapped about the abortion on her track “Autobiography,” but she “didn’t expect anyone to hear it”. On the song, she raps: “Please baby forgive me, mommy was young; Mommy was too busy, tryn’a have fun; Now I don’t pat myself on the back, for sending you back; Cause God knows, I was better than that.” So sad!
We think Nicki is so brave for speaking up about her heartbreaking abortion decision, and while the choice was tough, it has made her a stronger person.
