Nicki Minaj may be known for putting her assets on display whenever she steps out the door, but the “No Frauds” rapper let it be known that she’s not as confident as you may think.

While accepting the Fashion Rebel Award at the Daily Front Row’s 3rd Annual Fashion Los Angeles Awards on Sunday, Minaj opened up about dealing with the insecurities that come with fame.

“We all have insecurities,” Minaj said. “I want to say, shout-out to all of the kick-ass women, not only in this room, but all around the world. You know what, we win and fail in the public eye. That’s not easy to do. People think they know what it requires. People think they can do it. Everybody wants to walk in your shoes, until you put them in your shoes.”

The Grammy-nominated superstar then congratulated women everywhere for their strength and confidence. “It takes guts, it takes balls to fail and to make mistakes in the public eye, and to read s–tty comments about yourself every f–king day and to still have a beautiful f–king smile on your f–king face,” she said continued. “I love you guys so much for believing in me. I took some time off to rest, and now it’s game time, bitches.”

And Minaj came dressed to impress for the event, rocking head-to-toe Versace and knee-length extensions.

She posed it up with Fergie, who presented her with the award, and good pal Kim Kardashian.

And she also showed off her award on her Instagram page.

Congrats, Nicki!

Lupita Nyong’o Slams Magazine For Editing Out Her Kinks & Coils

When will these magazines learn…

Lupita Nyong’o just checked Grazia UK for brazenly altering her hair to remove any trace of kink, coil or wave. The magazine had invited the stunning actress to grace the cover of their November issue, but when the photo hit the ‘net there was one thing missing … Nyong’o’s natural ponytail.

In a lengthy IG post, Lupita let’s them have it, stating in part, “Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like.”

Read the full post below:

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style and texture.

For their part, Grazia apologized, essentially blaming the photographer.
