Fading rapper Nicki Minaj has a word for her haters who pray for her downfall. In an interview with Paper magazine, the 34-year-old Trinidadian said God has her back.
The nearly 40-year-old rapper sparked controversy when she posed for a slutty Paper mag cover that depicted her having a ménage à trois with herself.
Nicki said she keeps her cool because she is a believer and she always gets the last laugh.
“You can usually bet your bottom dollar that anytime you see something on the Internet going on with me, no matter how it looks, I’m usually behind the scenes laughing. Because I have a strong relationship with God,” she said.
Nicki said she always has the “last laugh” because she is one of God’s children.
“I’ve watched Him work miracle after miracle in my life. I’ve watched Him shut down every person who’s ever come up against me, and so it’s comical at this point ’cause I sometimes feel like, “Wow. Don’t they know how this movie’s gonna play out? Cause I definitely know how this movie’s gonna play out.” My closest friends and team members and family — we put it in God’s hands and leave it there. And we know that Nicki is always gonna have the last laugh. And Nicki is always gonna continue to be successful because I give so much to people who don’t deserve. And when you are consistently doing good for people who do not deserve your goodness, the universe has no choice but to give that back to you, tenfold.”
Nicki’s brother, Jelani Maraj, 39, currently sits in a Long Island jail awaiting his sentencing hearing following his felony conviction for child rape.
Nicki lost a good chunk of her fan base after she paid her brother’s legal fees and planned to testify in his defense during his trial.
