Nicki Minaj Covers 'Elle' May 2011

Nicki Minaj Covers 'Elle' May 2011

Nicki Minaj graces an alternate cover of Elle‘s May issue, on newsstands April 12!

Here is what the 26-year-old rapper had to share with the mag:

On her career aspirations growing up: “I always wanted to play with the boys. I didn’t want to be a pawn in their game or have a sidekick role. I wanted to be more of a lead character—a superhero.”

On her sense of style: “I tend to like booties…[pause]”—she takes a beat to clarify: no sexual meaning implied—“and really flashy shoes: totally studded out, in five colors with an insane platform.”

On her song “My Chick Bad” with Ludacris: “[I] chose to do punch lines and be comical, to show how bad I am lyrically, as opposed to how sexy I think I am.”
