Nicki Minaj revealed that she became addicted to Percocet after being prescribed the opioid for menstrual pain


Word On The Curb… In a recent interview with Vogue, hip-hop rapper Nicki Minaj admitted that she was addicted to Percocet. This explains why she always appeared to be higher than a cooter brown in her live videos.

The 40-year-old rapper said she was prescribed the narcotic to treat what she claimed were menstrual cramps years ago, but she kept using and abusing the pills a even when she no longer needed them.

“No one told me that this was a narcotic and this was addictive,” Minaj, who began taking the drug even when she wasn’t in pain, told Vogue.. “Luckily I was able to ground myself. But — once an addict, always an addict. I feel like if you’veever experienced addiction to anything, which I have, you always have to think twice and three times about the choices that you make.”

Minaj also mentioned Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, and Prince as other artists who struggled with substance abuse.

“Look at some of our biggest celebrities. They eventually either get laughed out of wanting to go outside anymore, like Michael Jackson, or criticized, like Whitney Houston, or they fight silent battles, like Prince,” she said. “These are some of the greatest of all time. And one day they decided, ‘You know what? I’d rather self-medicate and be in my own world.‘”

In her Vogue story, Minaj also reflected on her father Robert Maraj’s struggle with crack cocaine addiction during her childhood.

“I feel like I will always consider myself to be just like my father,” Minaj said, speaking about her father who was addicted to crack cocaine.

Nicki told the magazine that she realizes those struggling with addiction “weren’t making those choices because they wanted to hurt their family.” She added, “Addiction took over their bodies and their lives.”

Hopefully, Minaj can get some serious help to keep her grounded and away from the Percocet drug.

  1. Yeah okay Nicki…..tylenol, Ibuprofen, mydol. They don’t perscribe nothing this strong for cramps. She got hooded doing illegal drugs, which she may have been using for cramps, but she didn’t get them from a doctor that for sure
