The April 2016 issue of Nylon is out, and it’s got wigfuls of Nicki Minaj.
The woman’s been through a lot, but honestly, this interview makes her seem pretty grounded, albeit a little DIVA. Check it out:
On how to be a boss: “Really being a boss is all about adding to your résumé,” she says, her steel brown eyes sharp beneath a blonde pageboy. “I’ve always been interested in business, and I’ve always been a businesswoman, before I had $10 to my name.”
On being a woman in the music industry: “As women, it’s very challenging to do what we do, and be successful, and sustain yourself, and be creative, and still be respected,” she says. “And the truth is, you’re never done proving yourself. But the most important part is to go after what you truly desire, versus what other people say you can or can’t have. I think that [Minaj’s] focus makes it easy to kind of tune out the naysayers.”
On her relationship with Meek Mill: “We’re just taking it one step at a time. And, you know, if that happens, if I get married, then I’ll have a child, and that’ll be fun, because I can’t wait to hold my baby. 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.”
