Nicki Minaj: 'I Wanted To Be An Actress'

Nicki Minaj arrives at Heathrow International Airport to catch a departing flight on Sunday (April 22) in London.

The 29-year-old singer was decked out in pink attire with futuristic-looking boots.

At a recent show in the UK, Nicki dished that she didn’t always want to be a singer.

“I remember I wanted to be an actress first and then I went to school for acting,” Nicki said. “I always loved music ‘cause my mom would sing all the time. Singing was a little boring so I was like you know what, let me start rapping. I’ve been really doing it for sucha long time. I’ve put out three mixtapes and then kaboom, I was signed with Lil Wayne and this is my second album.”

    She’d have made a good Oompa Loompa, I’ll give her that.

    And I bet Hollywood will give her free pass. Ridiculous.

    Watched the Graham Norton interview. It was actually very good/funny. Graham sure is an ice breaker. Nicki was great but John Bishop was absolutely hilarious.

    I know i’m going to get voted down for this but I don’t really care – you guys realize that she actually went to school for acting, right? She went to the same performing arts high school as Jennifer Aniston, Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino and Adrian Brody and was in the acting program. I’m NOT (repeat, not) comparing her talent to those of those actors but I’m just saying that unlike who’s people who randomly decide one day they want to act like Kim Kardashian or Rihanna she has some (although limited) knowledge about acting and her terrible skills as a pop artist doesn’t really give people the right to act like they know her acting skills. I’m not defending her (I’ve never seen her act so I can’t judge) i’m just saying people on this site have the tendency to bash people they don’t like before seeing what they have to offer.

    @Alia san: Hopefully not… God knows what she could hide underneath all those crazy clothes. I was at Heathrow wearing a tight, thin hoodie and they made me take it off, but maybe because she’s “famous” they let her through security without too much trouble.

    @fsa: I’m with you on there. For example, Courtney Love (let alone her personal life) is a mess when it comes to music, but she has proven to be a great actress, and I don’t talk about “The people vs. Larry Flynt” where she was great, I talk about indie cinema where she shows her talent, even if a few of those aren’t the best movies (if someone saw the awful “Trapped”, she was better than Charlize Theron, Dakota Fanning and Kevin Bacon, and I’m not overacting… the woman can act).
