There is no doubting the pop culture phenomenon that is Nicki Minaj ,as she is the first rapper since Tupac Shakur to cover New York Times Magazine. But by her tone in her most recent interview you can tell how perturbed the pop icon is with white privilege, as she shuts down reporter Vanessa Grigoriadis: “DO NOT SPEAK TO ME LIKE I’M STUPID OR BENEATH YOU IN ANY WAY!”.
During her rise, @nickiminaj has become expert at modeling the ways that women can wield power in the music industry. But she has also drawn attention to the ways in which power can be embodied by a woman standing up for herself and speaking her own mind — both in her tracks and in her life. The photographer @erikmadiganheck met with @nickiminaj at a studio in Los Angeles. He used Warhol-like color plates to create this flashy GIF for #NYTMag. More of @erikmadiganheck’s portraits of @nickiminaj appear in this week’s magazine.
In a feature in the New York Times called ‘The Passion of Nicki Minaj’ the best-selling female rapper of all time opens up about the ongoing issue she has with Miley Cyrus. After calling out Cyrus in a now classic MTV VMA,s moment: What’s good B**ch” Minaj reveals the real issues is behind cultural appropriation or the lack of respectful artistry as it relates black culture saying:
‘The fact that you feel upset about me speaking on something that affects black women makes me feel like you have some big balls. You’re in videos with black men, and you’re bringing out black women on your stages, but you don’t want to know how black women feel about something that’s so important? Come on, you can’t want the good without the bad. If you want to enjoy our culture and our lifestyle, bond with us, dance with us, have fun with us, twerk with us, rap with us, then you should also want to know what affects us, what is bothering us, what we feel is unfair to us. You shouldn’t not want to know that.’
