No nine to five for Nicki Minaj

London: Singer-rapper Nicki Minaj has confessed to being fired an amazing 15 times in other jobs before making it big in music.

"The last job I had was as an office manager in a little, tiny room where I literally wanted to strangle this guy because he was so loud and obnoxious," a website quoted her as saying.

Minaj had just been named Billboard magazine`s first lady of Hip Hop but she still remembers what a nightmare she used to be when she was working.

"I worked at Red Lobster before that and I chased a customer out of the restaurant once so I could stick my middle finger up at her and demand that she give me my pen back. I swear to God I was bad," she said.
