Nicki Minaj claims to lead a quiet laid back life?

23 September 2014, 07:03

Los Angeles - Nicki Minaj hates going out.

The Super Bass singer admits she is different to other stars because of her low-key lifestyle but she prefers staying at home cooking food and watching her favourite TV shows to going to parties.

She said: "I'm in a surreal world, but I'm so normal in it.

"Most people that I know in the industry have maids, housekeepers, 10 bodyguards and a masseuse with them at all times. Everyone around me is like, 'You're so much more low-key than I thought.'

"I don't like going out, I don't like crowds, I don't like clubs. If I do have downtime, I prefer being in the house cooking West Indian food and watching my DVR."

The 31-year-old rapper - who was born in Trinidad and moved to Jamaica when she was five years old - thinks she has always been "brave" and has never been afraid to stand up for herself.

She told Dazed magazine: "I've always been brave. My mother made me feel like I could do anything."

"I can always remember standing up to the baddest girls in elementary school. Wherever I went, there was always a mean girl and that girl would always hate me because I wouldn't bow down."
