Nicki Minaj is on the move! Following the release of her album "The PinkPrint", Minaj is taking a moment to breathe and pursuing her other talents! As some may KNO, Onika comes from an acting background and that's her first love.
Fans will be able to enjoy all the glory of that since she's currently working on a new TV show about her life and starring in the new Barbershop 3!
In the latest issue with NYLON Mag, Nicki dishes on the role, her relationship with Meek Mill, new music and more!
On new music: “I needed time to hear myself think again,” she says, “because where I left off with The Pinkprint was a little bit emotionally unstable. I wanted to take a moment to just live my life, enjoy my life, have fun, go out. I think that’s very important before you start writing again. It’s a spiritual experience for the people who are hearing the music, so I’m trying to be very careful of what mental space I’m in while I’m creating it. Now, I want my happiness to be reflected in the new stuff.”
On Meek Mill:
When he and I were just friends, he would always say, ‘You remind me of my mother, and I like that because you’re like a dude. You’re tough like a guy and you talk like a dude.’ So I always got the sense that me being tough and bossy was a turn-on for him. And it’s important for me to keep my voice. Being in a relationship shouldn’t mean that you lose your voice. Being in a relationship should mean that you’ve met a secure-enough man to allow you, in a sense, to remain a queen.”
