bugs aren’t your enemy
your worth is not measured by how people treat you
you’re never alone with a good book or jamming beats
It’s ok to not agree with people, but it’s not ok to disrespect them
don’t starve. Just don’t
no one can make you happier than yourself
It’s actually OK to love your body the way it is, and it’s also ok to love your body after a good work out
the secret ingredient to everything is effort
Nicki Minaj is not a woman who easily slides into the roles assigned to women in her industry or elsewhere. She’s not polished, she’s not concerned with her reputation, and she’s certainly not fighting for equality among mainstream second-wave feminists. She’s something else, and she’s something equally worth giving credence to: a boundary-breaker, a nasty bitch, a self-proclaimed queen, a self-determined and self-made artist. She’s one of the boys, and she does it with the intent to subvert what it means. She sings about sexy women, about fucking around with different men. She raps about racing ahead in the game, imagines up her own strings of accolades, and rolls with a rap family notorious for dirty rhymes, foul mouths, and disregard for authority and hegemony.
While Beyoncé has expanded feminist discourse by reveling in her role as a mother and wife while also fighting for women’s rights, Minaj has been showing her teeth in her climb to the top of a male-dominated genre. Both, in the process, have expanded our society’s idea of what an empowered women looks like — but Minaj’s feminist credentials still frequently come under fire. To me, it seems like a clear-cut case of respectability politics and mainstreaming of the feminist movement: while feminist writers raved over Beyoncé’s latest album and the undertones of sexuality and empowerment that came with it, many have questioned Minaj’s decisions over the years to subvert beauty norms using her own body, graphically talk dirty in her work, and occasionally declare herself dominant in discourse about other women. (All of these areas of concern, however, didn’t seem to come into play when Queen Bey did the same.)"
I’m so sick of people saying that Nicki Minaj is not a role model. She’s one of the few celebrities that have NEVER been caught doing drugs and does not have a mugshot. In regards to her body, she’s 31 years old and she can do whatever she wants with it. People are quick to call her a “slut” when…
