Nothing wrong with a little history making right?
Nicki Minaj has just made history as the first rapper to ever cover Style Bible, Marie Claire. Inside the mag’s August 2013 issue, the former “American Idol” judge talked about having childdren, a revelation about her life and what she wants for the future.
Here are some highlights:
On becoming a mom:
“I want to be a mom one day, and I want to start becoming the woman who I want to parent my child.’ I wanted all of the feelings of entitlement to leave me, because some people have this life for a year or five or 10 – and a lot of them lose it. I didn’t want to become a person who wasn’t enjoying the moment.”
On advice to women about men:
Don’t chase any man. Put your school first. Men love independent women. You don’t have to be a b*tch, but there’s nothing wrong with it at times. And: Men are kids at heart. They want to be nourished and pet like a dog.
On what American Idol proved:
The perception that people had of me completely changed because there are no cue cards, there’s no script, and it wasn’t me performing a song. It was, ‘Let’s see your real personality. My core is a genuine human being who roots for other people. I didn’t want to blow smoke up their ass. I wanted every contestant to leave with something that they could remember
On her recent epiphany:
“I was on a world tour, a big feat for a female rapper. For the first time, I allowed myself to feel proud of where music had gotten me, and I felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude. You feel the need to pay it forward, which starts with analyzing yourself with a true desire to grow. I was praying every day.”
On her plans beyond the music scene:
“I at least want to do three more albums. If I can do that, I’ll feel complete. One day, when I start getting a couple of gray hairs, maybe it will all be only acting. I just never know … I’ve kind of become the poster child for doing the things that no one expects.”
