Nicki Minaj: Marilyn Monroe Meaning

Marilyn Monroe Lyrics

I can be selfish, be so impatient
Sometimes I feel like Marilyn Monroe
I'm insecure, yeah, I make mistakes
Sometimes I feel like i'm at the end of the road

I can get low, I can get low
Don't know which way is up
Yeah, I can get high, I...

    Personally, I think she is comparing her own feelings towards Marilyn's.
    Maybe the feelings get newfound fame has brought her? The pressure to be perfect, because you're always in the public eye and being judged. She talks about the major downs she sometimes feels, and feels there's no way she'll be ever to pick herself back up again; as well as major highs she feels, where everything is going good for her and she feels "on top of the world". She is expressing how she looks up to Marilyn and wants to learn from her, yet doesn't wanna lose herself like Marilyn had, who eventually committed suicide. Every person has "good days" and their "bad". Take them for all they are, or not at all. That's the point of the song.

    Nicki Minaj is scared that all the fame will bring her down like it did with Marilyn Monroe. Many famous people suffer from break downs, psychological problems and substance abuse. But Marilyn Monroe is a good example for her because she seemed so beautiful and perfect that it is hard to believe that she ended up this way.

    Marilyn Monroe is about Nicki saying she felt like Marilyn, like she was judged and used a lot and that's never going to change because she's famous. She does have good days, but also confusing ones, and she feels alone, like she can't take much more of this life she's living. So she's asking if that was how Marilyn, who lived long before her and was going through the same thing, felt.

    Nobody was in the fucking illuminati , get the fuck over it, the illuminati was a secret society that was built thousands of years ago, there member remained secret that long why are they exposing their identities now? and why only famous ignorant rich bitches? nobody nicki minaj nor Marylyn Monroe were in the illuminati!.

    A buddy and I believe this song is how Nicki shouldn't trust Lil Wayne. Well,because she er...traded her soul to someone. I forgot his name...

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    It seems like Niki Minaj is trying to say that Marylin Monroe fell apart, this is why she killed herself. She uses a few of Marylin many many quotes. Marylin Monroe was one of the greatest women ever, it makes me happy to see that Nicki Minaj, a person who was born long after Marylins death, could look up to her.

    I believe Nicki regrets joining the illuminati. So did Marilyn Monroe, hence, "is this how Marilyn Monroe felt, felt, felt, felt?"

    I think nicki was trying to make reference to marilyn monroe in the music that she dosn't want to end up like her. Marilyn monroe was killed by the illuminati when she deviated from them and was licking their secrets out.
