joanna newsom wants to work with nicki minaj

In a recent interview with Malibu Magzine, the 28-year-old folk songstress divulged that while an official date hasn’t been set in stone, there will definitely be a “future scheduled stop with [her] harp on The Simpsons.” But if the prospect of watching Newsome frolicking in all her fully animated glory isn’t enough, she also told Malibu about a couple of exciting collaborations that she wants to pursue.

In addition to working with Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold (her one-time tourmate and Kid Rock cover partner), Newsom also admitted to wanting to work with Young Money’s First Lady – Nicki Minaj – on a future project. No word on whether Newsom would adopt any of the rapper’s outfits for the video, but the results sure would be interesting. In the meantime you can check Newsome out at one of the tour dates below. Some tickets are available at venue websites through Drag City’s tour page.

nicki minaj nominated in “sexiest video hottie of the year”

Beyoncé has been voted “Sexiest Video Hottie of the Year” by Fuse TV. The “Sweet Dreams” singer beat out some of pop’s hottest ladies to grab the top spot.

Other artists in the top ten include Katy Perry, Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Fergie, Rihanna, Christina Aguilera, Pink, Shakira and Nicki Minaj.

A spokesman for Fuse tells the Daily Star that they “set out, pure and simple, to find the sexiest performances.” Over 30,000 people responded to the poll.

Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream” video landed the second spot, with Britney Spears’ “Womanizer” taking third place. Lady Gaga came in fourth with “Bad Romance.”

The rest of the top 10 included Fergie, “London Bridge,” Rihanna, “Hard,” Christina Aguilera, “Dirrty,” Pink, “Sober,” Shakira, “She-Wolf,” and Nicki Minaj, “Massive Attack.”

nicki minaj talks album cover, uk release date

With two Billboard records under her belt, Rolling Stone and Out covers and a new album on the way, Nicki Minaj still keeps it hood. The femcee took it back to the people last night (October 7) and answered fans’ burning questions via Twitter.

No stranger to the 140 character world (or responding to her fans directly), Nicki routinely answers questions from her over 1.4 million followers arbitrarily. Last night the questions became a little more personal, and Nicki Minaj gladly obliged.

The semi-formal Q&A announcement arrived on Twitter around 8pm EST, when Nicki tweeted that Young Money affiliate Scaff Beezy needed 27 more followers to break the 13,000 mark. If he reached that number, Minaj promised a tell-all session with her fans and Scaff Beezy actually reached 13,145 followers.

The questions began pretty basic, as @CollegeBarbz asked “When can we expect the ‘Right Thru Me’ video”, to which Minaj replied “Gonna see the rough draft tonight.” The album questions included inquiries about a UK release date (November 23 per her label), along with the album cover being revealed shortly, as the Nickster just chose her album art.

Then fans dug a little bit deeper, as @Nicki_Support asked “Who was your childhood crush?” The response was both personal and sad, as Nicki responded, “Had a boyfriend named Khatif when I was 10, but he died. R.I.P. baby.”

On a happier note, @TeamMinajJapan asked, “Does your mother call you Onika or a family nickname?” Nicki tweeted “My parents have called me Nicki all my life.” The final question answered was @KaitlynMorris’ “Ever had any pets?” Per Nicki, she had a “really cute mutt” named Rocky.

Following the Q&A session, Nicki began retweeting fans’ compliments and well wishes, along with the promise that her true fans won’t be disappointed by the realness of her upcoming LP Pink Friday, particularly the intro. The last time she poured her heart out on wax was on the touching track “Autobiography” from her Sucka Free mixtape.

“It’s funny,” Nicki Minaj tweeted. “To so many people I’m the ‘new’ girl. But there are people who’ve been a part of my journey for the last three years. That’s why I do what I do.”

possible rihanna featured track on “pink friday?”

Two of the baddest chicks in the game may be making more noise with another collaboration. Rihanna has revealed that she and Nick Minaj are cooking something up for the hip-hop vixen’s Pink Friday debut.

It was previously noted that the femme fatales had worked on a track called “Raining Men” for RiRi’s fifth album Loud, but the two might have something else up their sleeves. “Nicki Minaj, we did a song together called ‘Raining Men,’ and we might be working on her album together also,” the Bajan babe tells London’s 95.8 Capital FM.

She also shares what her boyfriend Matt Kemp thinks of the “fearless, bold, and expressive” Loud. “For the most part, he actually loves everything on the album but ‘Who’s That Chick,’ he doesn’t really like that one,” she laughs. “I guess it’s too lightweight pop for him.”

However, the L.A. Dodger is a fan of the LP’s slower cuts. “He really likes the ballads on the album. Those are his favorite ones.”

Most of the tracks are uptempo except for two powerful ballads called “Scared of Beautiful” and her personal favorite “California King (Bed),” which she predicts will be the biggest song off the project.

Rihanna hopes to go on tour again next year and is already thinking about a repackaging of Loud.


nicki minaj makes billboard history

A few months back, Nicki Minaj scored her first Billboard number one. Now, she has become the first female rapper with the most entries on Billboard’s 100. The seven entries are listed as Nielsen Soundscan’s 200 best-selling songs of 2010 with, so far, a total of 4,298,000 in sales:

The entries consists of her single “Your Love” (755k) as well as her guest features including Luda’s “My Chick Bad” (1,246,000), Lil Wayne’s “Knockout” (519k), Trey Songz’ “Bottoms Up” (518k), Usher’s “Lil Freak” (508k), Sean Kingston’s “Letting Go (Dutty Love)” (377k), and Jay Sean’s “It Ain’t The End” (355k).

Not bad for a rookie. Nicki’s debut album, Pink Friday drops November 23rd.
