Nicki Minaj hates going out. The Anaconda singer admits she is different to other stars because of her low-key lifestyle but she prefers staying at home cooking food and watching her favourite TV shows to going to parties.
She said: “I’m in a surreal world, but I’m so normal in it.
“Most people that I know in the industry have maids, housekeepers, 10 bodyguards and a masseuse with them at all times. Everyone around me is like, ‘You’re so much more low-key than I thought.’
“I don’t like going out, I don’t like crowds, I don’t like clubs. If I do have downtime, I prefer being in the house cooking West Indian food and watching my DVR.”
The 31-year-old rapper – who was born in Trinidad and moved to Jamaica when she was five years old – thinks she has always been “brave” and has never been afraid to stand up for herself.
She told Dazed magazine: “I’ve always been brave. My mother made me feel like I could do anything.”
“I can always remember standing up to the baddest girls in elementary school. Wherever I went, there was always a mean girl and that girl would always hate me because I wouldn’t bow down.”
