Nicki Minaj is gracing the December 2023 issue of Vogue and she looks beautiful.
The Queen of the Barbz expressed her gratitude on Instagram, thanking Anna Wintour for making her “wildest dreams” a reality.
“Anna, thank you. I can’t really find the words to sum up all these emotions right now, but gratitude is number 1 on the list. Thank you for making one of my WILDEST dreams come true. A beautiful & surreal experience from start to finish,” Nicki Minaj expressed her heartfelt appreciation.
Nicki Minaj also extended her gratitude to entertainment director Sergio Kletnoy and the entire team for their role in creating an enjoyable, iconic, and unforgettable experience.
Inside the Vogue issue, Nicki Minaj covers a wide range of topics in her interview, from her music career to the challenges of being a good mother.
While her cover shoot is undeniably stunning, one of my personal favorites is the photograph featuring Nicki and her son, Papa Bear.
In her interview, Nicki Minaj shared how her “whole soul lights up” when she gazes into her son’s face.
You know that feeling when you unlock one of the secrets of life? For me the idea of accepting what you can’t change—it just never clicked with me before.
You want to have control over everything, but that’s the easiest way to be unhappy. So now, if I find myself trying to control it all, I try to remember what’s really important.
I look in my son’s face, and my whole soul lights up. He has no clue how nerve-racking it’s been for me to be a mother and an artist.
Nicki Minaj also discussed her views on body positivity, emphasizing her support for it while stressing that it should not promote unhealthy body standards.
I just looked at a video that I posted on Instagram when I was 25, and I would f— pay to look like that right now. But today I can say that I’m at peace with who I am and how I look.
I have to say this as a Black woman, though. I’ve made certain choices for my son, to not give him sweets and candy and juices, because of illnesses like diabetes that run in our community.
I’m not in favor of body positivity if it means unhealthy bodies. That’s bull. It’s not believable, so let’s stop pretending. Recently I had to get a breast reduction, and actually I love it.
I used to want a bigger butt, and now I look back and realize how silly that was. So—love your curves, and love your non-curves. There’s nothing wrong with any of it.
