Los Angeles - Nicki Minaj wants a man who appreciates how hard she works.
The Anaconda rapper who recently split from boyfriend Safaree Samuels wants to be with someone who understands the effort she needs to put into her career.
She said: ''I want someone to appreciate how hard I work.''
The 32-year-old rapper went on to suggest her relationship with Safaree ended after 12 years because she was a ''workaholic'' and he needed more attention than she could provide.

Speaking at the CRWN: A Conversation with Elliott Wilson and Nicki Minaj event, she said: '''I lost a big part of my life, and one of the reasons was because I was a workaholic. I couldn't focus on anyone else.
''Maybe they needed more attention, and I take care of my whole family. So if I'm gonna choose between working my ass off and giving you, one human being, all of my attention? You might get forgotten sometimes. Not because I don't love you, but because I got the weight of the fucking world on my shoulders.'''
The Bed of Lies singer recently took to Twitter to blast her former partner as an ''ungrateful evil soul''.
She wrote: ''Anything you don't appreciate will be taken. God sees your ungrateful evil soul. I gave and gave and gave. Threatening me? Blackmail? Jump.
However, Safaree hit back, insisting he's been busy promoting his music instead of blasting his ex-girlfriend.
