I truly feel that unless someone has experienced a TRUE connection to an artist, they will never understand the feelings and actions of others that have. So many people look at our admiration as a surface infatuation and they can't dig deeper to see what is actually at the CORE. There are many "artists" and people we will admire in our lifetime but there is a difference between admiring someone and connecting. Before Nicki, there was plenty of artists who I adored and drew inspiration from, however they were all so far out of my grasp for the most part. It was as if we lived in different Universes and I could just admire the "IDEA" of who they were. Sometimes it is almost scary to have an opportunity to meet an idol because all the expectations you have can be shattered in one bad encounter. On that note, after meeting Nicki on several occasions and the amazing people that surround her, my love has only blossomed for her. Here is this individual that has made it big and can easily just give a smile at the camera, throw a wave or two to her fans, and go on with her business. Yet, she is the one that takes the time to personally interact with her fans and has this built in ability to make you feel as if you are hanging with ur bff when you are in her presence. That alone, makes her stand in a league of her own. There is a genuine aspect of her personality that can't be learned, it is REAL and once you have experienced it, only then can you objectify to someones love for her. If you find something or someone in life that moves you in the direction of your dreams, you follow them until the end of the earth and let all the nay sayers watch from the sidelines of negativity-ville as you make your way to your pot of gold. I truly believe certain ppl are placed in our lives for a reason, and if you trust that and block out anyone or anything that tries to make you feel different simply because they can't understand, that is when you will witness all the beauty life has in store for each and every one of us!!!! I feel blessed to have found so many ppl who understand and share this bond with me. A bond to this one little incredible person that just by sharing her world, has brightened each one of ours and set us in motion to discover our DREAMS! I love Team Minaj and I love our NICKI!
