Everyone copes in different ways!
In an interview with Style Like U, the 31-year-old admitted:

This is curious!
Nicki Minaj is partially wet and her white tank top is stretched tightly against her breasts on her new Rolling Stone cover, but weirdly enough, you cannot see even a faint outline of her nipples.
It's like her areolas have been completely ironed out! #FreeTheNipple
Suspiciously missing nipples aside, Nicki does open up in the interview portion of the mag, talking about her new album and some of the drama she's experienced in her private life.
"One of my goals was to give people a glimpse into my personal life, because it's something I've kept very private."
And she doesn't shy away from explaining how hard the breakup from boyfriend Safaree Samuels has been:
"I had to learn to do something as simple as sleep alone. I struggled with ‘Do I express these feelings?' And I decided there's no reason for me to hide. I'm a vulnerable woman, and I'm proud of that."
She also reiterates that she has no shame about looking or acting sexy, and encouraging other women to do the same, if they're comfortable with it:
"With a video like Anaconda, I'm a grown-ass fucking woman! I stand for girls wanting to be sexy and dance, but also having a strong sense of themselves. If you got a big ol' butt? Shake it! Who cares? That doesn't mean you shouldn't be graduating from college."
Nicki also opens up more about her pregnancy as a teenager:
"I thought I was going to die. I was a teenager. It was the hardest thing I'd ever gone through."
Though the decision to have an abortion has "haunted" her life, Nicki admits:
"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. Millions of people are gonna hear [the song she wrote of the experience]. And you gotta watch everything you say — people find an issue with every fucking thing."
So open and honest! This is a whole new Nick!
