Nicki Minaj Admits to Contemplating Suicide

Before signing with Lil Wayne and becoming a platinum-selling artist, Nicki Minaj tells Cosmopolitan magazine, she contemplated suicide.

While to some Ms. Minaj may seem like an overnight success, the Queens-bred superstar endured a long road before hitting it big.

“It was just one dead end after another,” she told Cosmo in their new issue. “At one point, I was, like, ‘What would happen if I just didn’t wake up?’ That’s how I felt. Like, ‘Maybe I should just take my life?’”

Now, with over No. 1 album and a handful of singles that made it all the way to the Top 5 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, as well as an opening slot on last summer’s Britney Spears tour, it’s no doubt that Minaj is on her way to a successful career. In fact she already has it planned out.

“I will have put out five albums and will have an Oscar and Grammys,” she predicted. “My whole life is about being Nicki Minaj now. It’s a never-ending saga.”

    Self entitled pukes such as Minaj SHOULD end their pathetic little lives.
    HARDSHIPS?- Middle class family-NOT starving.
    Might have to move back home? – She thinks of ending her life?
    A TALENTLESS DREAMER. (Oscars & Emmys)
    Not a clue about REALITY.
    A TOTALLY WORTHLESS TURD.

    i would like to hear if she wrote any raps when she was suicidal as i havent really heard that depressed negative side of her come across in her music she is always upbeat and positive and it would be a breath of fresh air to see her digging deeper and exploring darker lyrical territory im excited to hear what she comes up with next i think she needs to break free from young moneys influence to develop herself as an artist she can survive on her own she has proven her ability to thrive outside of li’l waynes mentoring i can relate to her struggles of wanting to kill urself trying to make it im happy she got her break otherwise we never would’ve been blessed with her raps n quirky personality fans would know she was darker before she is known for battle raps

    Like for real. Stop depending on me for everything ever about life! Stop asking me questions first insted of finding out for yourself. Stop waiting to see if I know the answer on how to do this or that. Meaning “what if oneday I just didn’t wake up?” don’t say we’ll ask Nicki Minaj tommorow! Some people have died of heart attacks in their sleep so what if oneday I just didn’t wake up will you still be able to ask me tommorow?
    Who’s looking out for me? Who wakes me up every morning?

    GOD! Is the only one that can take life or give life. He is the one who decides whethter you live or die and so for all of your stupid suicide attempts(LEXI) STOP IT! You are making yourself look dumber and dumber. If anyone tries to commit suicide meaning “kill themselves” they are in reality only harming themselves and scarring themselves up because you will not die unless GOD says that you can. There are millions of Doctor’s and Nurses around all the time and you may not know that they are healthcare professionals and that is why you cannot die because they have been trained by GOD to save lives Dummies!
