Nicki Minaj Covers 'Paper' Spring Issue
Here’s what the 29-year-old rapper had to share with interviewer Simon Doonan, Barneys New York’s creative ambassador at large:
On sitting next to Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour at New York Fashion Week: “I was screaming out loud inside my head. Me sitting next to the Queen of Vogue! It was such a strange experience. I felt like I was dreaming. And I thought she would be snobby or something. But she was so incredibly sweet to me.”
On being a reality TV fan: “I love [Mob Wives'] Big Ang – what is that? And I love the way those girls talk to each other: ‘Don’t YOU be coming at ME!!!’ I love every freakin’ moment. And I watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Beverly Hills.”
On how she handles her fame: “Ugh! I have been working sooo much. Success came and now that somany eyes are on me, I feel I have to deliver. And it’s a business. No joke. I guess I am stressing more than I should be, and I think I am becoming more guarded.”
