Nicki Minaj Talks Orgasms And Wage Equality Like The Queen She Is

Nicki Minaj is a woman who knows what she wants and gets it, in bed and in the workplace.

The rap goddess graces the cover of Cosmopolitan's July issue, and opened up about how orgasms are a must for her.

"I demand that I climax," she said. "I think women should demand that. I have a friend who's never had an orgasm in her life. In her life! That hurts my heart. It's cuckoo to me. We always have orgasm interventions where we, like, show her how to do stuff. We'll straddle each other, saying, 'You gotta get on him like that and do it like this.'"

"She says she's a pleaser. I'm a pleaser, but it's fifty-fifty," Minaj added.

Minaj also makes sure she gets what she wants when it comes to business matters. She is an advocate for women asking questions and being vocal in the workplace -- including discussions about salaries.

"Women are uncomfortable talking about money," she told Cosmo. "I know it's taboo to discuss it at work. Technically, you shouldn't, but you need to know what people around you are making. Otherwise, you're not going to know what you're worth. You have to ask questions. 'What is this person getting?' Do your research. I've always been pretty competitive in terms of my pay."
