Working in the entertainment industry requires someone to have tough skin and a great sense of humor. However, some stars admit to suffering under the pressures of fame and scrutiny in the entertainment industry. Recently, Nicki Minaj got candid about herself during a segment of the James Cordon’s Carpool Karaoke. The “Seeing Green” rapper revealed that she now suffers from anxiety as a result of facing constant criticism from people.
The Rapper Suffers From Anxiety
Celebrities face the pressures and hardships of Hollywood. While some can navigate them without trouble, others experience roadblocks. At the start of her career, Nicki Minaj arrived on the rap scene confident and boastful. While still very self-assured in her music and presence, the mother of one admitted she suffers from anxiety.
During the last segment of James Cordon’s Carpool Karaoke, the “Freedom” rapper revealed that she’s more apprehensive from facing constant criticism. By her being a woman, she feels that she deals with harsher criticism.
“I just don’t think it’s natural. It’s not natural for a human being to just always feel like everyone’s critiquing them,” the 39-year-old told Cordon.
Furthermore, the star rapper often has to protect her energy and refrains from using all social media platforms. Previously, Nicki Minaj voiced her opinion on the mistreatment of women in the industry. Obviously, changes need to be made.
Nicki Minaj Turns To Her Son During Difficult Times
Nicki Minaj went on to say that though she experiences periods of anxiety, she often turns to her newborn son to cheer herself up. During the segment, she noted that her 18-month son helps to remind her of the important aspects of her life.
“He makes me so happy,” she told Cordon.
Fortunately, Nicki Minaj relies on her son and family to help her through the difficult times in her life.
