Nicki Minaj Accepts The Game Changer Award | Women In Music


– Thank you to Billboard for doing this. It is the only thing that got
me dressed in the last month, so I don’t know, maybe
that’s a good thing. I recently had the pleasure of working and touring with Juice Wrld. I had a great conversation
with him one day, and while we walked to
the stage, he held my hand and told me to stay calm and to pray. He said he had been
tryin’ to do just that. I was so shocked to hear him
of all people tell me that, but right there in that moment with him tellin’ me that
I actually did feel calm and I felt like, “Hmm, what
am I actually worried about?” I felt like he was a kindred
spirit, and lookin’ back now I wish I did somethin’ differently or said something to help. He spoke to me in detail
about how in love he was with his girlfriend and how
passionate he was about music, and when he was in the studio with me he did so many songs so quickly. He was honest and pure about what he felt and that inspired me. I know this is a woman in music night and I’m so honored to be in the presence of all of these great women. I looked to see who was being honored and I said I have to be there. All these women inspire me as well. So many things Alanis Morissette
said just really hit home. So I know it’s about
that, but I wanna just, it doesn’t feel comfortable
for me to talk about me when someone so important
to our culture just died, and so I wanna honor him
tonight and send my condolences to him and his family and his girlfriend and his friends and everybody. (audience clapping) And I wanna tell everyone
that drugs isn’t the problem, it’s the way we fix our problem. So it’s so important that
we don’t pass judgment so that people don’t feel ashamed to speak up and ask for help. It’s so important we
talk about mental health, it is, ’cause people are dying because they don’t wanna
express how miserable they are and how much they’re suffering, so they rather medicate themselves. So I just came here tonight to ask people to be a little bit more
forgiving and understanding, especially with entertainers. We can’t have a bad day. Women in this room, shout
out to all the women in this room, make some noise. (women cheering) We don’t always feel sexy,
we don’t always feel cute, we’re not always in the mood. Why did you have to go there? But we have to and that’s abnormal, it’s abnormal to be on all the time, but that’s what we signed up for. We’re not allowed to
complain, we’re not allowed to be human, we’re not
allowed to have a bad day because we’re so blessed. But that makes absolutely
no fucking sense. We’re human, all of you in here are human and you are allowed to be human and not beat yourself up for doing that. So, in closing, I just
wanted to encourage everyone to talk about whatever it is
that they need to talk about and be honest and open and get help. – [Man] Woo! – Thank you for that woo. Yeah, I don’t like making up speeches and I definitely wasn’t
gonna read a teleprompter, so in the car here I tried
to jot some stuff down. Congratulations to all of the
women being honored tonight. It’s an honor to be here with you guys. Thank you to Republic Records who I’ve been with my entire career. Little Wayne, Baby, Slim,
Mac, everybody, Young Money. Thank you to all the incredible people I’ve had the opportunity to work with for the last decade, hi Normani. And lastly I wanna
thank my incredible fans ’cause I know somewhere
they’re figuring out a way how to watch this. You guys have been with me
thorough thick and thin. I always am gonna keep surprises for you, even when you don’t
see me on the internet, I’m still thinking about
you and I’m still working on ways to impress you
guys and make you happy. So Barbs, wherever you are in the world, please know that I love
you and I thank you so much for your support and to my husband, thank you for everything,
I love you so much. Goodnight, guys.
(audience cheering)

    Her humility speaks volumes about the real Nicki. We could all learn from her example. Much love and success to The Queen always.
