There are many people all over the world who dream of one day become rich and famous and, while there are a huge amount of perks that come with being a global superstar, there are also a lot of downsides to fame. One of the biggest downsides to being a famous superstar, is the fact that you no longer really have a private life any more.
That makes things even harder then, when you come out of a long relationship and have to deal with that break up with the whole world watching you. That is exactly what singer Nicki Minaj has been going through lately, as the singer split from long-term boyfriend Safaree Samuels and Nicki has admitted that she is having a really tough time with the split.
Minaj was a guest on Power 105.1, when she told host Angie Martinez, "My relationship was based off of love, and there still is nothing but love there. This is not some person I picked up off the street. This is somebody I grew up with. Like, I don't even know how I'm gonna function without that person in my life. I've never lived my life as a famous person without him."
She added, "I don't think people realise it's not just a relationship or breakup. That was a humongous part of my life. It is something that I am dealing with publicly and it's not easy. I'm also not gonna joke about it or try to disrespect him and try to act like he didn't mean the world to me and still doesn't mean the world to me. I'm just figuring it out."
While her personal life has not been going so well lately, Nicki Minaj has been enjoying success in her music career, with the release of her latest record The Pinkprint. We hope her music achievements can help to numb some of the pain of her split.
