Nicki Minaj Explains How to Prevail in What Often Feels Like a “Male-Dominated” World

The Big In 15 honoree will make you feel like the queen you are.

Everyone on this planet knows who Nicki Minaj is. The star has become an international icon and built her own empire, and it wasn’t by sitting back and politely listening, doing what people told her to. Nicki accepted her VH1 Big In 15 With Entertainment Weekly honor tonight with poise and grace, sharing moving words with women who have ever felt stifled in a world filled with powerful men. Nicki is walking proof that you and your dream can prevail.

See part of her speech below… Are you bowing down yet?

“I’ve never met a woman that I couldn’t relate to, ever. I hope that if I inspire women to do anything, it’s to never take no for an answer. No matter what field you’re in, go after your biggest dream. Do not settle. Do not allow people to tell you that you can’t do anything you put your mind to.”

How about now?

Although Nicki makes it her mission to support girl power and fight the fight, she still took a moment to recognize her “baby” Meek Mill.

We powerful women like our men where we can see them 😉

See the incredible video in its entirety below.

Congrats to the Barbz.

Pizza is bae. And yes, I still say bae.
