Morning Motivation: Nicki Minaj Says Don't Accept the Pickle Juice

Morning Motivation: Nicki Minaj Says Don't Accept the Pickle Juice

In 2011, Nicki Minaj called out the double standard that women like Sheryl Sandberg, Amy Poehler, and Beyonce are also fighting to defeat. But she did it with a variety of voices and a fuschia beehive, while putting on her makeup before an appearance. "When I am assertive, I'm a bitch. When a man is assertive, he's a boss. He bossed up. No negative connotation behind bossed up, but lots of negative connotation behind being a bitch," Minaj said. Three years later, her words still ring true. No description can do this clip justice--watch it for yourself and get bossed up for the day.
