    In her Cosmopolitan magazine cover star, colorful rapper (and Lil' Kim nemesis) Nicki Minaj reveals she contemplated suicide. She was a struggling artist for so long that it nearly got to her. Thankfully, she warded off those thoughts and kept on fighting!

    "I kept having doors slammed in my face, I felt like nothing was working. I had moved out on my own, and here I was thinking I'd have to go home. It was just one dead end after another. At one point, I was, like, 'What would happen if I just didn't wake up?' That's how I felt. Like maybe I should just take my life?,'" Minaj revealed to the woman's publication.

    With that dark period behind her, Minaj has her eyes on the future and its prizes. She said, "I will have put out five albums and will have an Oscar and Grammys. And I will be getting married and, a couple of years after that will have a bun in the oven… My whole life is about being Nicki Minaj now. It's a never-ending saga."

    Awards and babies! You go girl. You can have it all.
