Nicki Minaj’s glammed out cover for Cosmopolitan Magazine cover has people talking about how beautiful the Barb is rather than commenting on her assets or ridiculous style. She looks tamed and fashionable without all the extra add-ons and accessories. It makes you think is less really better? The young role-model revealed to Cosmo that she has had suicidal thoughts before. She speaks on her abusive father and what attracts her to men! Click here, to see the photos from the mag!

On her abusive father

“He would beg, cry, stalk us… One time, he pulled my mother out of a car and dragged her for two blocks. After that, I had a phobia about unlocked doors. Anywhere my mother and I were, I made sure the door was locked, because that was my only way to protect her.”

On her suicidal thoughts

“I kept having doors slammed in my face. I felt like nothing was working. I had moved out on my own, and here I was thinking I’d have to go home. It was just one dead end after another. At one point, I was, like, ‘What would happen if I just didn’t wake up?’ That’s how I felt. Like maybe I should just take my life?’

On what attracts her to a man physically

“I do like a dope nose profile, one that’s straight on the side. And I like full lips. I’ve never kissed someone who didn’t have full lips.”
