Lizzo, Big Sean, and Logic. Those are just some of the musicians who've admitted to struggling with anxiety.

Nicki Minaj is the latest and it's something she spoke about on Carpool Karaoke with James Corden.

“I think when I was younger, probably, my natural state was to be more confident,” Nicki explained. "But I think when you’re a woman and you’re in the public eye all the time, if you’re not careful, you can become less confident because you’re being constantly scrutinized.”

“I don’t think it’s natural. It’s not natural for a human being to always feel like everyone’s critiquing them," she added. "When I first came into the industry, I had this amazing sense of freedom, because nobody gave a sh*t about what I was doing. I could get away with doing anything and they’re just like, ‘Oh, haha! Nicki Minaj!’ And then it goes from that to the complete opposite where it’s like, if I blink my eye wrong they’ll have a story made up about why I’ve blinked my eye that way.”

Would you say that all of the scrutiny and criticism famous people get is worth it?
