According to sources, Nicki Minaj revealed her concerns for having such young fans. “Being honest, if I had a daughter I wouldn’t want her listening to a Nicki Minaj CD until she was a certain age, even when I meet my fans and they tell me they are 12, I cringe a little. I always say, ‘Listen. I don’t want you saying the bad words, put school first’. Nicki also mentioned how she believes that children do need to hear about the good and bad in life to help them succeed. Minaj also discussed her dysfunctional upbringing, and how it’s shaped her as a woman. During the an interview she says, “All of my young and teenage years we lived in fear that my mother would be killed by my father,” she said of her home life as a teen. “It was ridiculous. It made me act out to guys and be evil to them when I was growing up, it made me tough. I am an emotional person, but I am a tough person. It was very tough emotional for me to have a parent who was an alcoholic and a drug addict. I had a mum with no money.”
