Vogue’s cover star Nicki Minaj opens up about experiencing addiction with prescribed Percocet...

Unfortunately to say, with celebs, doctors tend to abuse their power. They care more about money, than the actual health and wellbeing of the celebrity. We've seen this first hand with Michael Jackson and others. During her cover interview with Vogue, Nicki Minaj got candid about experiencing addiction after being prescribed Percocet. She went on to point out how various celebrities are given addictive medication, and mentions late icons like Michael, Whitney Houston and Prince. 
From Vogue:
Years ago, while briefly living in Atlanta to advance her music career, she was prescribed Percocet for painful menstrual cramping. It was enormously helpful, until she found that she was taking the medication even when she wasn’t in pain. “No one told me that this was a narcotic and this was addictive. Luckily I was able to ground myself. But—once an addict, always an addict. I feel like if you’ve ever experienced addiction to anything, which I have, you always have to think twice and three times about the choices that you make.” She believes that the risk of substance abuse is especially high among those who live under a microscope. “Look at some of our biggest celebrities. They eventually either get laughed out of wanting to go outside anymore, like Michael Jackson, or criticized, like Whitney Houston, or they fight silent battles, like Prince. These are some of the greatest of all time. And one day they decided, ‘You know what? I’d rather self-medicate and be in my own world.’ ” Minaj seems to be accounting for the scar tissue amassed around her relationship with the press. “Should you keep on doing interviews and pouring out your heart so people can laugh? No.”
Percocet for menstrual cramps? Her periods must have been next level, because prescribing Percocet, an actual narcotic, as the first solution to her problem is absolutely insane. It's almost similar to Dr. Conrad Murray giving MJ a large dose of propofol, a powerful anaesthetic, to help him sleep when there were less drastic solutions. Not saying she's lying, but her doctor needs questioning. It only confirms many people's suspicions that the industry has their own set of doctors where they can just dose celebs for their own personal gain. She looks absolutely beautiful in this shoot by the way. She's not very likable, but no one can deny she's a beautiful woman. Sadly, all that beauty gone to waste on birdlike behaviour and decisions.
