Nicki Minaj: Pretty in Pink for 'T Magazine'

Nicki Minaj: Pretty in Pink for 'T Magazine'

Nicki Minaj strikes a pose in Yves Saint Laurent for a photo shoot with New York Times’ T Magazine.

Here’s what the 25-year-old rapper had to share:

On her thoughts about Pink Friday: “Sometimes I get tired of some of the songs because they have been with me for so long but overall I never imagined that it would be something that I would cherish so much and be so proud of. Having the album out feels like I am finally a real artist, like I have the stamp of approval as an artist from myself.”

On her style: “When I’m just at home or in the studio, I’d rather be chill. I like to dress down on my personal time but when it’s time to go out it’s on. I do like a pop of color. To me it’s less about wearing the tightest thing than wearing what makes me feel confident. Sometimes if something is too tight I’m not confident, I’m like, Don’t look!”

On her spat with Lil’ Kim: “The thing that I want to promote is that if you see someone doing their thing, give them their props. We all have it hard and face the same challenges as female emcees. Show some mutual love and respect for each other so that it doesn’t get nasty. And she can be a nasty character.”

    On her spat with Lil’ Kim: All she is doing is saying things other female rappers have said. She is lame.

  • brr

    who’s she?

  • XYZ

    She, like countless others celebs from nowadays, is a joke. A bad one. And like all bad jokes, she will disappear.

  • ME

    Another nobody that thinks she can sing. Who is this loser anyway?

  • just saying

    if you see someone doing their thing of course you give them props. But when you see someone copying you and acting like they created all of it, don’t expect applause.

    Nicki is a copycat and a 3rd rate “rapper” who will disappear as soon as she gets fat.

    Nicki Minaj, Lindsay Lohan, Jersey Shore, all distractions. As the Mainstream Media creates illusions, the US gov’t (and their corp. friends),start more illegal wars, ban books like “America Deceived II” and bail out banks.

  • Afarin

    Frank you’re spot on

  • Anthony

    Nicki Minaj, such a beautiful female, this is what I have always thought and believed that her body was all natural, but I hearing some much lately that she has done much configuration to her body, which has become such a turn-off for me. Especially on her ass, something I like the most. Nooooooo!!!! I thought her ass was real and loved it so much but there is so much talk that she had work done on it to make it that big. Why Nicki, why

    Lol Anthony. Yeah, her bum is fake. It’s sad…..I’m starting to really feel like she’s just gimic…everything is fake about her to sell records. But I will say she IS talented at least….

  • lolwth
