Shot by Matthias Vriens-McGrath, Nicki Minaj rocks a series of swimsuits in the latest issue of Cosmopolitan. In the accompanying interview the rapper and songstress shared a pretty pro-woman message.
On being high-maintenance in bed:
“I demand that I climax. I think women should demand that. I have a friend who’s never had an orgasm in her life. In her life! That hurts my heart. It’s cuckoo to me. We always have orgasm interventions where we, like, show her how to do stuff. We’ll straddle each other, saying, ‘You gotta get on him like that and do it like this.’ She says she’s a pleaser. I’m a pleaser, but it’s fifty-fifty.
On being open about discussing money:
“Women are uncomfortable talking about money. I know it’s taboo to discuss it at work. Technically, you shouldn’t, but you need to know what people around you are making. Otherwise, you’re not going to know what you’re worth. You have to ask questions. ‘What is this person getting?’ Do your research. I’ve always been pretty competitive in terms of my pay.”
The issue hits newsstands on June 9th.
