Nicki Minaj is the big kid on the playground in one of the fashionable photos from her cover shoot for BlackBook magazine, on sale now. The head Barb holds a tattered doll and pink soda can while standing on top of foam blocks in yellow sneakers. She dons various other getups inside the pages including a butterfly-print jacket, spotted catsuit, fringe dress, and sky-high platform heels.
In the interview, Nicki shares what her and fellow pop star Lady Gaga have in common. “We both do the awkward, non-pretty thing,” she says. “What we’re saying—what I’m saying, anyway—is that it’s okay to be weird. And maybe your weird is my normal. Who’s to say? I think it’s an attitude we both share.”
When asked if she’s dating her co-manager Diddy, she responded, “God, no. It was so disgusting to me that people would even link me and him. I grew up watching him. I look at him like a Russell Simmons figure, definitely not as someone I’d be getting it poppin’ with.”

While she reigns supreme as H.B.I.C. over the hip-hop landscape, Nicki Minaj grants King Magazine permission to enter her sexy kingdom. Yes, it’s the Harajuku Barbie’s world, and we’re just tickled pink to be living in it.
KING: History has shown that acting is the likeliest transition for rappers. Considering your background, do you want to dabble in Hollywood?
NICKI MINAJ: Of course.
KING: What would be your dream role?
NICKI MINAJ: I’d like to play someone in a Tim Burton movie, where I get dressed up and painted and crazy.
KING: You kind of do that now.
NICKI MINAJ: Then I want to be able to do some action stuff, like Angelina Jolie.
KING: Like in Salt?
NICKI MINAJ: Yes! And then I’d like to just play a regular girl who, you know, is facing the world. Something really sentimental and organic, that girls all around the world can identify with. You know, how Jada Pinkett Smith did in Jason’s Lyric.
KING: Classic film. You did mention earlier how everything has been time consuming. But when that time frees up, what kind of guy do you look for to be sentimental and organic with?
NICKI MINAJ: Um, I look for someone who is calm, someone who is strong enough to not have to win every argument, someone who allows a woman to be her crazy self and someone with a conscience not to feel less of a man. You know, someone who is able to honor his woman but also bring out the freak in his woman.
I’ve added the photos in the gallery you can view them by clicking the thumbnails or the link above! The rest of this article will be posted sometime in January while the magazine hits newsstands then as well!
