    21 Times Nicki Minaj Was A Role Model To Women

    "Promise me you'll stay in school."

    1. First things first: Minaj will never let you think that you're not good enough.

    2. She believes that women who know what they want are powerful.

    3. At all times, she inspires others to speak their minds...

    ...and to not be afraid of being labelled a "bitch" for doing so.

    4. She doesn't apologise for who she is or what she wants.

    5. And any chance she gets, Minaj encourages fans to stay in school and work hard...

    No u will NOT ma'am! > RT @MiLUVMiSUMNEEKi: That means ima skip or be late to 1st period.”

    And that's exactly where dat ass belongs ma'am > RT @twerkingonika: @NICKIMINAJ gurl imma be in school”

    ...even her younger fans.

    6. She cares more about others than herself, and puts other women first.

    7. In fact, the "Feeling Myself" video is a perfect example of how she is a champion of female friendships.

    8. Not content with just being a talented rapper, she's also a style icon with a perfect body.

    9. When she talks about love, she is *all of us.*

    10. Despite that, she also reminds us that men ain't shit.

    11. On that note, she says that all women shouldn’t shy away from their sexuality and they should demand better sex.

    12. She reminds women to not give a fuck or let things stress them out.

    13. She captures the real struggle that women face trying to be "everything."

    14. When it comes to her work, Minaj calls out how female artists are not given the credit they deserve.

    Especially black female artists, who face racism in their industry and whose talent is overlooked.

    If I was a different "kind" of artist, Anaconda would be nominated for best choreo and vid of the year as well. 😊😊😊

    I'm not always confident. Just tired. Black women influence pop culture so much but are rarely rewarded for it.

    15. Minaj knows about hard times, and she inspires women to push through them to achieve their goals.

    16. But to achieve those goals, Minaj gives real talk about how you can only achieve great things with hard work.

    17. She reminds us all that we should look out for ourselves.

    18. She regularly shows an appreciation for her fans that is unparalleled.

    19. She loves her mother...

    ...and often speaks about how was supported and inspired by her.

    20. Finally, let's not forget she delivered the best rap verse of all time.
