Nicki Minaj is said to be worth more than $130 million.
But the celebrity wants more, according to an interview with actress Jada Pinkett Smith in the Fall 2022 issue of Interview magazine. The 39-year-old artist stressed the significance of financial knowledge.
In an eye-catching fashion session, the pinup showed off her great form in leotards and bikinis.
Nicki told the Red Table Talk host, 51, that she’s “not even halfway to where I’m trying to go financially.”
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the Pink Friday artist is worth a cool $130 million. And, with so many of her friends in the entertainment industry becoming billionaires, it’s no surprise that the celebrity has lofty goals.
“I vowed I would never be one of these Black women, men, or rappers who make all this money and then leave nothing for their children. “The mother-of-one remarked on financial security.
Minaj was born Onika Tanya Maraj. She has been married to Kenneth Petty for two years, and she calls him “Papa Bear.”
“I have promised my family since I was a kid: I’m going to get rich and buy you a house,” she said.
“I had all these big dreams,” she remembered of her adolescence in Queens, New York, “but it was always important to me what I was going to leave behind.”
“So even though I’m not even halfway to where I’m trying to go financially, I know that no one is going to be on top of my stuff more than me.”
And Nicki, who rose to prominence as a member of rapper Lil Wayne’s Young Money team, discussed the mental toll of being a woman in the music industry.
For women, people always assume that they can play with you, for lack of a better term, and I just can’t have that, she explained.
Then Minaj stated, “Because we work so hard, I have to leave something behind. This profession takes a lot out of you psychologically, man. And then to do all of this and have nothing to show for it? I decline. ”
When Jada inquired, “What would you say is one of your biggest life lessons?” “Save your money.” “Nicki said strongly.”
And she understands how fragile financial stability can be.
The entrepreneur took careful notice, “If Mike Tyson could go broke, anybody can. I want people to understand the money that these labels and these endorsement deals throw at you at the beginning of your career, and all these advances that you get, baby, those ain’t going to come every year.”
