Queen Nicki Minaj — who is so good at saying the right thing that we wonder if she’s been sent to this Earth from an alien planet to liberate the female gender — is one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People of 2016. No surprise there. This woman remixed a Beyoncé song and made it better.

In her Time video, Nicki Minaj talks about what made her the woman she is today: her innate desire to grow up and be the boss. “From very early on, I felt like, ‘You know what, whatever I do one day, I want to be more in charge of my business.’”

Please continue, career counselor Nicki: “One thing I learned along the way in business is the necessity for you to be unapologetic in asking for how much money you deserve.” Why is that? “If you know you’re great at what you do, don’t ever be ashamed to ask for the top dollar in your field.”

Damn. When will this woman write a book already?
