Young Money‘s femcee Nicki Minaj covers the July 2015 issue Of Cosmopolitan magazine.

Inside, Minaj talks about discussing money, recording The Printprint, being high-maintenance in bed, and where she see herself in 10 years. Below and on the the two pages are more pictures and excerpts.
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.”
On recording The Pinkprint after a tough breakup with Safaree Samuels:
“I didn’t [set out] to write a personal album, but The Pinkprint came at a very crucial time in my life. I realized that people can up and take off at any given moment. As women, we are vulnerable and emotional, and that’s OK. I had to learn quickly that if you don’t have a sense of self, you can be destroyed by a man. You can be destroyed by a relationship. I had to ask myself, ‘Who am I? Is this good enough?’ I had to approve of myself and my skills.”
