Nicki Minaj Discusses Raising HIV/AIDS Awareness

Nicki Minaj gives her take on helping in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Much like fellow rapper MC Lyte, Nicki Minaj has taken up the fight against HIV/AIDS.

The humanitarian effort is through the Young Money emcee's partnership with M.A.C. Cosmetics. Minaj serves as the spokeswoman for the M.A.C. AIDS Fund VIVA GLAM campaign.

On Wednesday (February 15), she joined fellow spokesperson Ricky Martin to explain the importance of the campaign on "Good Morning America."

"I had an uncle that passed away from AIDS," revealed Nicki. "He actually was living in Trinidad. It's dually important because it's my family [and] it's my country. And so when M.A.C. reached out, we spoke a lot about going to the Caribbean islands, raising awareness there, and of course we want to do everything everywhere we can."

"It's important for people from the islands to understand: it's not something that should only be discussed in America," added Nicki. "This is something that's killing a lot of - especially - black women."

"I don't want people to think that this is a gay disease...or an 'in the 80s' disease," she explained. "This is something that's killing everyone, no matter your preference, your religion, your race."
