While addressing racial double standards, she also calls out none other than Kanye West. The shot she fires is also pretty specific and hard to argue, as it quotes one of West's own lyrics.
"I’m so tired of Black women feeling that when our men get rich, they’re going to leave them for a woman of a different race," she says. "It wasn’t funny when Kanye said [on ‘Gold Digger’], ‘When he get on, he’ll leave your a** for a white girl’ – and Kanye happens to be with a white girl now. It wasn’t funny when he said it; it was the f***ing truth.”
While expressing her disgust with the trend that West is bragging about, she also brings up Kim Kardashian posing nude and how people, specifically Sharon Osbourne, reacted, pointing out that it "wasn't trashy and raunchy when a white woman did it, but it was when a Black woman did it?"
In addition to discussing various double standards, she also gives advice to young women, offering that she wants to see more entrepreneurs, more rich women and more career-driven women.
"You have to be able to know that you need no man on this planet at all, period," she adds. "And he should feel that, because when a man feels that you need him, he acts differently."
We couldn't agree more. Once again, thank you, Nicki, for always keeping it all the way one hundred, especially during interviews and while discussing subjects such as double standards found both in our communities and in entertainment, and empowering women in the process.
