Nicki Minaj isn’t difficult, she’s just ’bout her business.

“I demand that climax. I think women should demand that,” she says in Cosmopolitan‘s July cover story. “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.”

But the “Feeling Myself” rapper is nothing if not supportive.

“We always have orgasm interventions where we, like, show her how to do stuff,” Minaj, 32, says. “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 50/50.”

Minaj, who recently embarked on her Pinkprint album’s world tour, also encourages women to be more demanding in their careers. That starts, she says, with being more open about talking about money.

“Women are uncomfortable talking about money. 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,” Minaj says. “You have to ask questions. ‘What is this person getting?’ Do your research. I’ve always been pretty competitive in terms of my pay.”

Take her advice: Minaj is the world’s highest-paid female rapper and the only woman ever to be included in Forbes‘ list of the highest-paid hip-hop acts, having made the list every year since 2011.

As ambitious as she is, however, Minaj doesn’t see herself rapping into old age.

“Ten years from now, I will have two children, unless my husband wants three. I will be into my fitness a lot more, I will stop yo-yo dieting and I’ll be a housewife with careers that I can run from home,” she says. “I want to be able to cook for my children, bake cookies for them and watch them grow up. I just want to be Mommy.”
