[photogallerylink id=99743 align=left]If you take one look at [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm], I challenge you to find even one glimmer of self-doubt or low self-esteem. She has worked with some of the best in the business today including [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Britney Spears[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lil Wayne[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]will.i.am[/lastfm] and even SNL living legends[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] The Lonely Island[/lastfm].

You may be surprised to learn that at one point, the starlet had thoughts to give up on everything, including her own life. In her pre-fame days, a hustling Onika couldn’t take too much more failure and was at her lowest.

“I kept having doors slammed on my face,” Minaj recalled of her struggles. “I felt like nothing was working. I had moved out on my own, and here I was thinking I’d have to go home. It was one dead end after another. 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?”  

Luckily she stuck it out, caught her big break and now she has nothing but high hopes for the future. “I will have put out five albums and will have an Oscar and Grammys,” she envisions. “And I will be getting married and, a couple of years after that will have a bun in the oven. … My whole life is about being Nicki Minaj now. It’s a never-ending saga.”

Nicki’s life seems more and more like an epic novel everyday. I imagine she likes it that way, I know we do! Keeps it interesting.

We need something inspiring for this one.
