Nicki Minaj is one of the industry’s most daring and controversial artists. She is known for making bold statements that could backfire at any time, but she continues to do so without fear. Nicki Minaj recently stated that black men are not allowed to express their emotions.
Nicki Minaj and Joe Budden discussed their upcoming conversation on The Joe Budden Podcast on the latest episode of Queen Radio, where the mother of one addressed a tweet she recently shared about how women don’t exist for men’s pleasure, which eventually turned into her thoughts on how Black men require more emotional nurturing than we think.
“First of all, I wanna say this, the Moment 4 Life. Dear Black men, I f*cking love you. Dear Black men, I appreciate you. Dear Black men, you are needed and wanted, and dear Black men, you are the only men on this planet that, as little boys, you don’t get to be nurtured and treated like a child, like a baby, like someone’s thing that needs to be loved and hugged and kissed and told that we love you.”
Minaj went on to say that after raising her own little boy, she’s realized that the grown men in her life require the same loving attention that she gives Papa Bear.
“A lot of time, especially Black men, they’re not even allowed to show their emotions.”
“They get told, oh you gotta man up, and you gotta do this and you gotta do that. You gotta be the man of the house before you even… You know what I’m saying? A lot of times, the man needs to be treated like that, ladies! You know how we nurture our sons and our children, and we just adore them and kiss on them? They want that, they need that too. So, I just wanna make sure that I let Black men know for the rest of their lives – I love you, and we need you.”
“So many of you guys didn’t f*cking feel loved and nurtured at the most important time in your lives. I love this. I love that you’re spewing this, I love that this is the message.”
