Nicki Minaj Covers 'Vibe' February/March 2012

Nicki Minaj Covers 'Vibe' February/March 2012

Nicki Minaj wears a crown on the cover of Vibe‘s February/March issue.

Here’s what the 29-year-old rapper had to share with the mag:

On whether it’s hard to get her way as a woman in the industry: “It’s not hard to get your way when it’s your way or the highway. People either follow suit or they’re not around. I don’t really like the sound of that, ‘cause that sounds like a temper tantrum. I’m just very black and white when it comes to my business. There’s really no gray area. I really don’t have a lot of small talk with people I work with. It’s pretty much let’s get the job done.”

On being accepted by the fashion world: “Yeah, I realized more recently that even if it’s for a fashion magazine, I’m not gonna change who I am. When I was doing photo shoots last year, I kept on being told, ‘This is what we want your hair to look like and this is what we want you to look like,’ and it really, really stifled my creativity … But I’ve made up my mind that when you see a Nicki Minaj magazine cover from now on, it’s really going to reflect me and it’s going to be something that I creatively had a hand in, because I don’t have to do it anymore. I don’t have to do things just to please people.”

    What happened to her?? She is a transparante follower now, Nicki used to be cool, but it seems she’s sold her soul to corporate music.
