When you think of funky and unique rapper Nicki Minaj, depression and suicide are probably not the first things to come to mind. But apparently Nicki’s future wasn’t always so bright — in the November 2011 issue of Cosmopolitan, she opens about how she once contemplated ending her life.
Before Nicki made it big, her disappointing career was making her seriously depressed. She said, “I kept having doors slammed in my face. I felt like nothing was working. I had moved out on my own, and here I was thinking I’d have to go home.”
She added, “It was just 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?'”
