Nicki Minaj can teach people how to be a boss, according to the publication.

BuzzFeed has listed "10 Lessons On Being A Boss At Work From Nicki Minaj."

The list's #1 lesson is: "Recognize the double standards that assertive women face." The site cites the following quote for this lesson. "When I am assertive, I'm a bitch," Nicki says, according to BuzzFeed. "When a man is assertive, he's a boss. He 'bossed up.'"

The #2 lesson in the list is "Don’t worry about being nice to everyone all the time." Here's how the publication explains this lesson. 

“Ain’t got time to talk, just Hi and Bye bitch!” Minaj raps on Drake’s “Make Me Proud.” Society wants women to be nice and neatly manageable but Minaj does the opposite and it’s made her career more dynamic than those of her peers. And if you scare a few people because they’re not used to a prim and proper, clean-mouthed lady, then so be it!

The publication also has the following points as the remaining 8 lessons to learn from Minaj about being a boss.

3. Be a trailblazer in your field.

4. And remember and recognize all the women who paved the way for you.

5. Always be getting money.

6. Don’t let men in power tell you what you’re worth, you tell them what you’re worth.

7. Make loud and clear decisions.

8. And flaunt your achievements proudly.

9. Run with the boys in power, and don’t shy away from the goal of taking their place.

10. And remember, you’re going to make mistakes, but that’s okay.

Yesterday (May 17), Nicki Minaj performed at Los Angeles radio station Power 106's Powerhouse event. Recently, the rapper also discussed a return to her Rap roots.  

"[The evolution of my career has] just been peeling back the layers and now, it's like the ultimate layer was me saying, 'Now I'm going to do whatever kind of music that I want to do'…[it's] not always going to entail a hard Hip Hop beat, but sometimes it is," she said recently. "A lot of the tracks on [Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded] are a hard Hip Hop beat and just spitting, and that's why I've been [working with] some people like Cam, 2 Chainz and the legendary Nas. I got those people because…I wanted to get back to [just rapping]. I wanted to remember what it felt like when I just wanted to show people that I could rap."

      ^^Why doesn't anyone just stick to the topic at hand instead of always bitching?
    • JRich
      Because no one gives a fuck about the topic at hand, and it's shitty journalism.

    Beyonce and Kim Kardashian are corporate sluts. Nicki is a boss. She will beat the shit out of any female who steps to her. YMCMB has the rap game by the clit. Meanwhile, Columbia records has Beyonce by the clit ring and E has Kim by the nipple rings.

      No, Nicki's a corporate slut. She won't beat up anyone. Your trolling lies are getting old.
