Of Bitches and Bosses......

When I first heard Nicki in the excerpt below, I applauded at home on my sofa. I had already waited an entire week for her special and was super excited to hear what she has to say about her success. I love and admire the Girl Power and feminist vibe that Nicki Minaj oozes into her work, she makes me proud to be a woman. Her music pushes me to step out of my traditional role as a gentle, sweet, and always kind...to bold, honest and assertive.



“  When I am assertive, I’m a bitch. When a man is assertive, he’s a boss. He bossed up. No negative connotation behind bossed up. But lots of negative connotation behind being a bitch. Donald Trump can say, "You’re fired." Let Martha Stewart run her company the same way and be the same way. People will say ‘fucking old evil bitch!’ But Donald Trump, he gets to hang out with young bitches and have 50 different wives and just be cool. Oh, Donald, we love you, Donald Trump!
  When you’re a girl,you have to be everything. You have to be dope at what you do but you have to be super sweet and you have to be sexy and you have to be this, you have to be that, and you have to be nice. It’s like, I can’t be all those things at once. I’m a human being.
