THE ROYAL PEEK: NICKI MINAJ
Here’s a preview of our cover shoot with Nicki Minaj…you’re all welcome!
While she reigns supreme as H.B.I.C. over the hip-hop landscape, Nicki Minaj grants us permission to enter her sexy kingdom. Yes, itâ€™s the Harajuku Barbieâ€™s world, and weâ€™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.
What would be your dream role?
Iâ€™d like to play someone in a Tim Burton movie, where I get dressed up and painted and crazy.
You kind of do that now.
Then I want to be able to do some action stuff, like Angelina Jolie.
Like in Salt?
Yes! And then Iâ€™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 Jasonâ€™s Lyric.
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?
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.
How should your Ken bring out the freak in you, Barbie?
Just being super aggressive when the time is right.
Are we talking about Mortal Kombatâ€“style â€œCome hereâ€ aggression?
Just something that makes me feel like theyâ€™re in control, when we are behind closed doors.
