Nicki Minaj was born December 8, 1982 in Saint James, a suburb of Trinidad and Tobago’s capital city, Port of Spain. Minaj is known for her album Pink Friday, which went Platinum a month after its release. From the album, Minaj’s single Your Love hit #1 on the Billboard Hot Rap Songs chart.
Rumors have circulated that Minaj is bisexual, due to statements she has made in past interviews. This is untrue. In 2011 Minaj spoke out against the rumors stating, “That’s definitely not true… I guess some people are thrown off by me embracing gay culture. But I don’t feel the need to explain that. Unless someone asks me a specific question.”
