Watch Nicki Minaj Pay a Visit to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

It was inspirational.

Published August 12, 2015

Nicki Minaj is currently on the Pinkprint Tour going all around the world. Still, she finds time to inspire the youth and encourage them to live out their dreams.

Last week, Minaj paid a visit to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia in conjunction with the Ryan Seacrest Foundation. She spoke to children about important topics like art, education, and her journey from unknown rapper to platinum-selling superstar.

She told everyone that she originally aspired to be a soap opera actress so she could buy her mom a house. Eventually, they asked about her music career, where she recited her first rap. (It’s hilarious, BTW.)

Then the conversation moved to her pet turtle of eight years and her favorite pizza toppings. Fun fact about Nicki: She’s never tried the stuff crust.
