Nicki Minaj (born Onika Tanya Maraj 08.12.1984) is an American rapper known for her singles 'Super Bass' and 'Anaconda' and her acting appearances in 'Ice Age: Continental Drift' and 'The Other Woman'.
Net worth: According to Celebrity Net Worth in 2013, Nicki Minaj has a net worth of 50 million USD.
Childhood: Nicki Minaj was born in Saint James, Trinidad and Tobago, to parents of African and Indian decent. At the age of 5, Minaj moved to the suburb of Jamaica in Queens, New York. Here, Minaj studied at Elizabeth Blackwell Middle School, before graduating from LaGuardia High School.
At the age of 19, she was fired from a job at Red Lobster in the Bronx for rudeness towards customers. She supposedly was fired from a further fifteen jobs for similar reasons.
Career: Nicki Minaj began creating mixtapes at an early age, some of which went on to be featured in 'XXL' - a hip-hop magazine. In 2008, she was awarded Female Artist of the Year by the Underground Music Awards. The following year, Minja released a mixtape entitled 'Beam Me Up Scotty', which was received well by critics at BET and MTV. In April 2010, Minaj released her debut single, 'Massive Attack', which was produced by Sean Garrett who features on the single with Alex Da Kid. A music video was made, directed by Hype Williams.
'Massive Attack' may have been Minaj's debut single, but the first single for her debut album was 'Your Love', which peaked at number 14 on Billboard's Hot 100 list. Minaj officially announced that her debut album was entitled 'Pink Friday' soon after, and the album was set for release in November 2010. A month beforehand, Minaj became the first female rapper to have seven songs in the Billboard 200 list.
'Pink Friday' was released on 19th November 2010, debuting at the number two spot on Billboard's 200 list, before later making it to the number one spot. Minaj used the name of her alter-ego, Roman Zolanski, in her second studio album. 'The Pink Print: Roman Reloaded', was released on 2nd April 2012 and debuted at the number one spot on Billboard's 200.
The album divided critics, receiving only moderate reviews, mainly due to the mix of rap and dance-pop. Minaj announced that for her 2014 third album, she would focus entirely on rap, and leave the pop out of it. On 12th December 2014, Nicki Minaj released 'The Pinkprint', which once again debuted at the number two spot on Billboard's 200.
The album received generally positive reviews, with many critics stating that it was Minaj's best album. Other critics cited the more vulnerable portions of the album as a tremendous let-down. Minaj then revealed that she planned to begin a promotional tour in support of the album in March 2015.
Personal Life: Nicki Minaj identifies herself as a Christian after her father attended rehab and became one himself. Minaj has also been cited as a supposed bisexual, however she has revealed that she does not wish to be labelled, and instead wants to make the hip-hop community more welcoming of non-heterosexual people.
In one of her songs, Minaj makes reference to an abortion she had at a young age, while in another, she references the death of her cousin, Nicholas Telemaque, who was murdered in Brooklyn in 2011.
Not a 'diss track', it's a hit where she disses Remy on it.
Forget what we said about Nicki Minaj staying silent on the REMY MA front. Forget it all. She has finally decided to hit back at her rival in one of her three newly released tracks entitled 'No Frauds'. It comes alongside 'Regret In Your Tears' and 'Changed It'.
Nicki Minaj reigns with her new single 'Changed It'
There's something mildly disappointing about Nicki breaking her silence on the Remy feud; before it seemed like the jailbird was just not worth any of Nicki's thoughts let along her time. But, alas, this is the rap game, and she has at least clapped back with style.
No clap-backs from Miss Minaj.
Nicki Minaj is refusing to let REMY MA get anymore attention than she already has by declining to rise to the rapper's bait. She hasn't said a word in response to Remy's two diss tracks about her, nor has she replied with her own counter-diss track. She's brushing off the whole thing.
Nicki Minaj has nothing to say to Remy Ma
Some things just aren't worth Nicki's time, and a string of insults, threats and unfounded claims are some of them. According to TMZ, she doesn't see any point in clapping back at her rival given that other names mentioned in 'ShETHER' have already come forward to deny Remy's comments including Lil Wayne, Trey Songz and Ebro Darden - all whom she was accused of sleeping with.

Remy's upset that Nicki has ignored her taunts.
REMY MA is just not ready to let go of problems with Nicki Minaj, and has released another diss track called 'Another One' just days after the release of her first entitled 'ShETHER'. For what reason? Nicki has risen above it all an decided against hitting back with her own lyrics.
Nicki Minaj is the victim of another savage attack from Remy Ma
The 36-year-old rapper is seriously coming for Nicki as she prepares to launch her second album more than a decade after her debut. Less than a week ago, she dropped 'ShETHER'; an ode to Nas' 2001 Jay Z diss track 'Ether' in which she accuses Nicki of having slept with Lil Wayne, Drake, Gucci Mane, Trey Songz and Ebro Darden, claims that her butt implants prevented her from having sex, brands her brother a paedophile and alleges that she's a heavy user of cocaine.

Trey Songz and Ebro Darden deny Nicki romance claims.
Last weekend, REMY MA dropped a brand new diss track brazenly and unambiguously slating Nicki Minaj in every possible way. Needless to say, a number of people mentioned in the song have responded to the various accusations, and it has brewed into quite the firestorm.
Nicki Minaj gets crucified by Remy Ma in 'ShETHER'
The track is entitled 'ShETHER' and named after Nas' 2001 song 'Ether' in which he dissed Jay Z. In the rap, not only does Remy slate Nicki's image and mock her relationships with Meek Mill and Safaree Samuels, but she makes a number of allegations about her. She accuses her of having slept with Lil Wayne, Drake, Gucci Mane, Trey Songz and Ebro Darden, and also threatens to leak a video of Nicki snorting cocaine ('I might leak the footage of you sniffing them ski slopes').

Are they making music together again?
It's times like these that make it important for people to stick together, and it seems that Nicki Minaj and Drake have taken note of that and decided to reconcile after over two years of not speaking. Plus, throw Lil Wayne into the mix and it looks like we can expect new music from the Young Money golden trio.
Nicki Minaj has joined forces with Drake for the first time in over two years
They haven't commented on their reunion, but both Nicki and Drake posted the same shot of the pair of them together yesterday (February 1st 2017). They later posted another picture of themselves along with their frequent collaborator Lil Wayne. Nicki hasn't said anything about their reaquaintance on Twitter, however; by the looks of things, she's been more concerned with people's use of the word 'literally'.

Major Lazer have teamed up with PARTYNEXTDOOR and Nicki Minaj for their latest track 'Run Up', for which they unveiled a new lyric video this week. They're set to launch their fourth studio album later this year, though released details have yet to be announced.
Major Lazer are back with their new single 'Run Up'
The video for 'Run Up' was released yesterday (January 26th 2017), and was created out of Major Lazer's friendship with PARTYNEXTDOOR whom they frequently bump into while recording in Los Angeles. 'PARTYNEXTDOOR is a good friend of ours. We're always working in LA when he is around and we've cut a lot of music and we really believe in what he does and his style', said Major Lazer's Diplo on working on the track.
Minaj revealed that she and her rapper boyfriend had ended their two-year relationship.
Rumours that the music power couple had split up started at the end of December when 29 year old Meek – real name Robert Rihmeek Williams – briefly deleted his Instagram account and Nicki posted a series of cryptic tweets hinting that their relationship had ended.
Finally, the 34 year old ‘Anaconda’ star revealed that she had split from him in a tweet posted on Thursday (January 5th).
