Forbes Names Top Hip
Hop Earners; Diddy
Leads, Nicki Minaj
Where them girls at!?
Nicki’s American Idol gig, coupled with her endorsement deals from MAC, OPI and Pepsi helped the “Superbass” singer double her paycheck from last year and secure the spot as top earning female.
That said, her attitude definitely helped as well.
“I’m never been afraid to walk into the boy’s club,” she told Forbes. “Ever, ever, ever, ever.”
That positive, can-do attitude may have been inspired by Nicki’s childhood struggles, having to see her parents fight constantly.
“I've always had this female-empowerment thing in the back of my mind - because I wanted my mother to be stronger, and she couldn't be,” she told Details magazine.
