American female rapper, Nicki Minaj, has come out for the first time to talk about having an abortion.
In a candid interview with American music magazine, Rolling Stone, the rapper detailed the horror of making the decision to terminate a pregnancy at a very young age.
“I thought I was going to die. I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through,” she said about the experience at that time. “It has thaunted me all my life. It’d be contradictory if I said I wasn’t pro-choice. I wasn’t ready. I didn’t have anything to offer a child,” she said.
Though this is the first time Nicki Minaj is talking about this abortion, she has however always hinted it in some of her songs. She first made mention of it in her 2008 record “Autography” where she referred as “Mommy” before touching on the topic again in a recent song titled “All Things Go”.
“My child Aaron would have been 16, any minute/ So in some ways I feel like Caiah is the both of them/ It’s like he’s Caiah’s little angel, looking over him,” she rapped on the song referring to a child who would have been 16, the same age as her beloved younger brother, Micaiah.
Although it is not known who “Aaron” is, the man who impregnated her, but he is believed to have been an older man from Queens, New York who she met while studying at the revered LaGuardia performing arts school.
