In her latest magazine cover for Marie Clarie, she speaks about doubles standards of women of color and white women. Also being a female boss and her goals. Her plan is to inspire young women. She stated “nowadays, I feel like [young women] see marrying into money. I think that’s a big thing now. I don’t want that to be a woman’s goal in life.” The rapper is known for posting very sultry pictures. She has been attacked for in the past. She feels “when Kim Kardashian’s naked picture came out, people praised it, and my fans attacked her for being such a hypocrite. So it wasn’t trashy and raunchy when a white woman did it, but it was when a black woman did it? It’s quite pathetic and sad, but that is my reality, and I’ve gotten accustomed to just shutting it down.”
