Nicki Minaj - Nicki Minaj Goes Public With Recent Health Scare

Rapper Nicki Minaj stunned fans during her acceptance speech at the BET Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (29Jun14) as she went public with a recent health scare.

The Starships hitmaker was picking up the prize for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist when she revealed she had suffered a mystery ailment which she was convinced could kill her.

However, she refused to contact emergency services over fears her illness would become a gossip item on websites like Tmz.com.

During her rambling speech, she said, "The other day, literally I didn't tell anybody this, I really thought I was about to die. Like, I was saying my prayers to die. And I didn't even want to call the ambulance because I thought, 'Well if I call the ambulance, it's going to be on Tmz!'. And I would rather sit there and die."

Minaj claimed the scary experience made her come to terms with the fact her fame would draw headlines regardless, and she added, "It made me realise I don't care what anybody got to say. I'm going to do me (sic)."

The hip-hop star has yet to expand on the cause of her health scare.
