We think she may have a point!

Nicki Minaj blasts showbusiness and the scrutinizing of celebrities in a new Fader magazine interview, and she ties it all back to the "near death experience" she referred to during her BET Awards acceptance speech this past June.

    "I was making a point to say that the business kills so many people and we don't even realize it. I can only imagine how many people in this business have died because they may not have wanted to...to be embarrassed publicly. We care so much about what the world thinks that we don't live, really," she explained.

Although the rapper doesn't go into detail about her brush with death, she does admit that it was a wake-up call. "It made me realize, I don't care what anybody gotta say. I'ma do me. I'ma do me," she declared.

With her third studio album about to be released, the "Pink Friday" singer is about to be a busy lady, but she isn't content with simply making music. "Every time I do a business venture or something that isn't the norm for a female rapper, I pat myself on the back. It's important that corporate America can see a young black woman being able to sell things outside of music," she stated.

With her skyrocketing success, the 31-year-old does admit that she's had to make sacrifices, specially being away from her family. She laments moving away from home when her brother was just a kid.

    "One day he asked my mother, 'Do you ever think there'll come a time we all live in the same house again, and Onika will be back and she'll have her room, and I'll have my room?' And it just broke my heart," she confessed.

We love her!
