Sunday night’s Video Music Awards was full of iconic performances, awards and more. When accepting the Video Vanguard Award, also known Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award, Nicki Minaj shined a light on taking mental health seriously.
“I wish that people understood what they meant and what they were going through. I wish people took mental health seriously, even for the people who we think have perfect lives.
It is very true, you never know what people are going through. Especially when social media can show ‘highlight reels’ of life, it’s important that we take mental health seriously and that is what Therapy Thursdays are all about on THE DROP 104.7. For Nicki Minaj to use her platform in such a way, especially during a prestigious award acceptance speech can have such an impact, raising awareness and removing the stigma.
