The Anaconda singer opened up about the traumatic time in her life to the latest issue of Rolling Stone. While she made the decision as a teen, it is something that still affects the 32-year-old to this day.
“I thought I was going to die. I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I’d ever gone through,” she revealed.
“[It] haunted me all my life. It’d be contradictory if I said I wasn’t pro-choice. I wasn’t ready. I didn’t have anything to offer a child.”
Nicki found out she was pregnant to her first love while attending the prestigious Manhattan performing-arts high school LaGuardia.
She first rapped about the experience on a track called “Autobiography” that she “didn’t expect anyone to hear.”
