NICKI MINAJ covers Marie Claire and Speaks On BEYONCÉ, JAY-Z, YOUNG WOMEN AND EQUALITY #NickiMinaj #Beyonce #JayZ #MarieClaire #Magazines #Equality #Feminism #Beauty #Fashion #Mogul #Empire #Entrepreneur #RAP #Queen #Inspiration

ON BEYONCÉ: “Every time Bey and I do something together, I see how women are inspired, and it has nothing to do with how we look. It has to do with how we are owning who we are and telling other women you should be the boss of your own career and the brains behind your life or your decisions or your art. I just love that feeling.”

ON JAY-Z: “I don’t need to read a book about [business]. I can look at someone’s career and just pinpoint the dos and the don’ts, and the one person I’ve done that with for my entire career was Jay Z. He did such a great job being an authentic street guy and a businessman, and I was like, Why aren’t there women doing that, taking the success from rap and channeling it into their empire? I felt like anything he could do, I could do.”

ON YOUNG WOMEN: “Nowadays, I feel like [young women] see marrying into money–I think that’s a big thing now. I don’t want that to be a woman’s goal in life. I want your goal in life to be to become an entrepreneur, a rich woman, a career-driven woman. You have to be able to know that you need no man on this planet at all, period, and he should feel that, because when a man feels that you need him, he acts differently.”

ON RACE AND DEATH: “We tend to not remember the black women who are mourning these men and who are thinking, Oh, my God, what am I going to tell my child now about where his father is, and the struggle it is for black women to then move on after they lose their husband or their boyfriend … The strong women in these inner cities often go unnoticed … no one really ever puts a hand out to them.”

Happy Birthday to my brother Alex! Haven't seen you since I was 15 and I really WISH we were able to celebrate together. Love you forever. I really wish things were different and better. Wish we could've been rapping your favorite Pac song, "Shorty wanna be a thug" in the club or somewhere, giving a toast and celebrating YOU. • • • #happybirthday #brother #alex #2pac #tupac #westside #instafashion #instadaily #outfitpost #menwithstyle #menwithstreetstyle #styleiswhat #pictureoftheday #potd #streetlook #streetstyle #inspiration #entrepreneur #paris #follow #Goals #RealEstate #Luxury #MUA #Model #Faith #luxurylife #followme
