Nicki Minaj - Minaj Is Happy To Help Troubled Fans

Hip-hop sensation NICKI MINAJ is proud she overcame her troubled childhood because fans now turn to her for help dealing with their own issues.
The rapper endured a tough upbringing as she witnessed her mum being beaten at the hands of her dad, who battled drug addiction.
Since rising to stardom, Minaj has been bombarded by messages from devotees who look to her for inspiration as they battle their own problems, and the Your Love hitmaker admits it makes her "feel good" to help troubled teens.
She tells Britain's The Sun, "A lot of people send me direct messages on Twitter telling me what they are going through - their father is on drugs, this and that and the third. They feel like they can deal with all this stuff because I did and survived. They can have the worst hand dealt to them but they can do whatever they set their hearts on.
"A lot of fans say they like me because I don't give a damn what they say about me. As a teenager you spend so much time worrying about what people say about you. When you have someone to look up to and you feel they don't care, it makes you more comfortable with yourself.
"Whether you are overweight, whether you feel ugly, whatever it is (you have to say) 'You know what? I am a bad b**ch. I don't care. Go f**k yourself'. That's the attitude they have. A lot of people on Twitter trying to be funny will say to me, 'Damn you for giving these girls so much confidence. Now everybody thinks they look good'.
"That makes me feel good. If these girls walk around thinking they are the baddest thing on the planet, I am happy. That's my manifesto. That's my mission statement."
