[photogallerylink id=78046 align=left]Nicki Minaj appeared on ABC’s Nightline last night for an insightful interview with JuJu Chang. Nicki opened up about her childhood, and growing up in a household of domestic violence in Southside Jamaica, Queens. She also revealed details about subconsciously creating a fantasy world and alter ego to cope with the pain. Additionally, JuJu asked Minaj if parents should be worried about their children watching the super star, and if it angers her when being compared to Lady Gaga.

Should parents be worried about their kids watching Nicki Minaj?
No, I don’t want to offend moms or children when they come and pay their money to see a show, but I didn’t come in the game to be an artist that appeals to kids either. [JuJu: You’re a grown up] Right, and I’m a crazy lunatic.
Does Lady Gaga comparisons offend you?
Offend me? No. Irk me? Yes. First of all, I’m a rapper. I’m from Southside, Jamaica, Queens. What are the similarities? Let me turn the cameras and ask you.
It does make you mad!
No. It’s just getting tiring. In the beginning I was like “ok, it’s cool. Haha, when they get to know me they’ll understand”. I mean GaGa is a fantastic artist. She’s paved her way. She’s opened her own lane. I feel like I have my own lane. And we never cross…ever.
