Nicki Minaj Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

Onika Tanya Maraj, more commonly known by her stage name of Nicki Minaj, is an American singer, rapper, songwriter, television personality as well as an actress, who rose to fame in 2010 with her debut album entitled “Pink Friday”, and has been on the top of the music industry ever since.

One may wonder then, just how rich is Nicki Minaj, as of early 2017? According to authoritative sources, Nicki’s net worth is estimated to be over $80 million as of early 2017, the main source coming from her involvement in the music industry, especially close to $1 million from “Pink Friday” record sales alone, while her “Pink Friday” tour added approximately $1.5 million dollars too.

Nicki Minaj Net Worth $80 Million

Nicki Minaj was born on 8 December 1982 in Trinidad and Tobago, where she spent most of her childhood, before moving to New York City with her mother, and where she studied at Clarence Whitherspoon School. Minaj’s initial dream job was to work as an actress, and she was even cast to perform in a play entitled “In Case You Forget”, but that didn’t work out, and she was forced to focus on more mundane jobs such as working at customer service, as a waitress and an administrative assistant.

However, in 2004, Minaj changed her career direction and joined the R&B group “Full Force”, with which she recorded a song for World Wrestling Entertainment superstar Lisa Marie Varon. Yet Minaj was dissatisfied, and left the group to focus on her solo career. Minaj was eventually noticed by the CEO of “Dirty Money Entertainment”, where she focused on releasing mixtapes, and produced her first solo work in 2007 entitled “Playtime Is Over”. In 2009, Nicki Minaj was transferred to “Young Money Entertainment”, where she caught the eye of famous rapper Lil Wayne, and where Minaj achieved international success.

In 2010, Nicki Minaj released her first studio album “Pink Friday”, produced by Sean Combs, Swizz Beatz and Will.i.am, Featuring guest appearances from Drake, Kanye West and Rihanna it did exceptionally well in the market, making #1 on the Billboard charts and selling 375,000 copies during its first week, and remaining in the charts for 73 weeks, being certified platinum by the RIAA and producing eight singles. Her net worth was rising considerably.

In addition to music, Nicki Minaj has successfully ventured into business, and opened a clothing line  -“The Nicki Minaj Collection”, as well as her own fragrance “Pink Friday”, and made several appearances on television screens in “America’s Next Top Model”, “Fashion Police” and “American Idol”.

In her personal life, Nicki was in a long-term relationship with rapper Safaree Samuels, and then dated rapper Meek Mill, but they split in 2017. Nicki is still based in New York City.

Looks like we don't have Nicki Minaj salary information. Sorry!


#Fact
1 Engaged to Meek Mill [April 2015].
2 Minaj will be the supporting act for Britney Spears on her Femme Fatale tour in America and for three of the UK dates. Minaj also featured alongside Kesha in the remix of Britney Spears' song "Till the World Ends".
3 Has "God you are always with me" tattooed in traditional Chinese letters on her left arm.
4 Graduated from LaGuardia High School, where she participated in the drama program. She had planned to sing at LaGuardia but lost her voice on the day of the audition.

#Quote
1 As long as a nipple didn't come out to play, I'm fine.
2 [on Britney Spears] She reminds me of my best friend, which is really, really weird. So, whenever I see her, I feel at peace for some strange reason.
3 [on Britney Spears] Britney is a beautiful girl, I love her. She's a sexy girl. I'll have to recruit her for my Barbie army.
4 Wayne has always been my biggest influence. It's weird because I sit down and talk to Wayne like he's just a regular human being, and then I walk on stage with him and there's 20,000 people screaming for him.
5 I am so territorial, that [from the start] I just felt like whatever I was gonna do I was gonna write it myself, its my personal preference to always be in control of everything I do in life.
6 I don't think intimidated is the word. I definitely get excited by it. I don't want to let anybody down. I've always been the type of person to make everybody happy and get things done. I want everything to be 100% perfect. I do feel it when people hold me to high expectations.
7 When you're a girl, you have to be everything, You have to be dope at what you do, but you have to be super sweet, and you have to be sexy, and you have to be this and you have to be that and you have to be nice, and you have to-- it's like, i can't be all of those things at once. I'm a human being.
8 Don't get it twisted. It's not about money, it's not about the fame. It's about I don't have to worry about if my little brother is gonna be able to get a new toy for Christmas. It's those little tiny things that really make up the bigger picture. So, my happiness doesn't come from money or fame. My happiness comes from seeing life without struggle.
9 I know right now she has no idea who I am, but I'd like to collaborate with Enya one day. Of course I'd love to work with Jay Z, maybe even Phil Collins. I love his voice.

#Trademark
1 Busty and curvy figure
2 Blue eyeshadow
3 Different colors/styles of wigs
4 Pink lipstick
