“I’m really happy,” she said during an interview with Ellen Degeneres. “I’m really, really happy. I think that’s what it’s all about. Right? I just feel like sometime you don’t know why something crazy or difficult or emotional is happening in your life until you’re able to use it to help other people or use it to be therapeutic for yourself and to grow from it.
“I realize why I had such an emotional year,” she added. “I was writing my album. I think I needed to grow as a human being. Now, I feel more peaceful. I’ve gotten rid of things that were not healthy for me. That’s all you could really hope for, right?”
Beyond discussing her happiness, the rapper also expressed her yearning for a bundle of joy, even if the baby doesn’t come any time soon.
“I will have a family even if I don’t have $500 million,” she said before clarifying. “But if I’m not taking a break for a family, it would have to be because of $500 million… I want a cute little fat baby. Not now, but one day. I just want a real cute fat baby.”
Nicki’s promo run for her latest project also led her to an interview with Hot 97 in which she twerked on a couch.
