Nicki Minaj says there is nothing wrong with a woman being a b***h.

The 30-year-old pop star - who has been with long term boyfriend Safaree Samuels for around four years - doesn't think there is anything wrong with being a strict and slightly unreasonable lady on occasion and urges women not to ''chase'' a man.

She told the new US issue of Marie Claire magazine: ''Don't chase any man. Put your school first. Men love independent women. You don't have to be a b***h, but there's nothing wrong with it at times.

''And: Men are kids at heart. They want to be nourished and pet like a dog.''

The 'Superbass' hitmaker was spotted slapping and groping the bottoms of strippers at Perfection - a gentleman's club in New York City - where she was out celebrating her beau's birthday on Sunday (07.07.13).

Nicki - real name Onika Tanya Maraj - who employs her boyfriend as her personal assistant is also thinking about her role as a mother if she is blessed with a child.

Nicki, who talked about analysing herself, said: ''I want to be a mom one day, and I want to start becoming the woman who I want to parent my child.

''I wanted all of the feelings of entitlement to leave me, because some people have this life for a year or five or 10 - and a lot of them lose it. I didn't want to become a person who wasn't enjoying the moment.''
