#WCW: 17 Things You Probably Didn’t Know About Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj has more than just a big butt. 

The “Anaconda” singer just celebrated her 33rd birthday on Tuesday (Dec. 8, 2015), so to celebrate we’ve put together a list of things you probably didn’t know about her. Since introducing herself to the rap game in 2006, she has now become one of the top female rappers on the planet. For that reason and more, she’s Celebuzz’s Woman Crush Wednesday this week.

Those who have been around since her mixtape days probably know everything there is to know about Minaj, but there are still lots of facts many might not be aware of. These days she’s BFFs with Beyoncé, dating (maybe engaged to) rapper Meek Mill, and was just nominated for three Grammy awards for her work on her latest album, The Pinkprint.

She was also recently awarded the Big in Music honors at VH1’s Big in 2015 With Entertainment Weekly and gave an inspiring acceptance speech.

I’ve never met a woman that I couldn’t relate to, ever, and I hope that if I inspire a woman to do anything it’s just to never take no for an answer. No matter what field you’re in, go after your biggest dream. Do not settle. Do not allow people to tell you that you can’t do anything you put your mind to.

Oh, she is also the definition of a female empowerment. Check out the gallery to learn 17 other facts you didn’t about female rapper, Nicki Minaj.
