Unlike Nicki’s much more provocative “Stupid Hoe,” ”Marilyn” is a heartfelt ballad that both shows a softer side of the rapper as well as her impressive vocal skills: “I can be selfish/Yet so impatient/Sometimes I feel like Marilyn Monroe/I’m insecure, yeah/I make mistakes sometimes/Feel like I’m at the end of the road…/Is this how Marilyn Monroe felt?/Must be how Marilyn Monroe felt.”

I’m not trying to take anything away from “Marilyn Monroe” or anything (rappers are allowed to feel sad, too!) but if I may, Nicki, I’d advise you to look the eff around! You’re famous, hot and can have any man you want — it’s probably about time to be thrilled!
