Nicki Minaj, who is working on a fashion line, has major plans for world domination. “I never thought about music as just being the end-all, be-all. I always looked at it like a business, something that I could create an empire out of. So that’s why I’m only about to put out my second album and I’m already thinking about this,”
“I had a little conversation with Jay-Z at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. He said, ‘Congratulations on all your success.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m coming for you. I’m coming for your spot, Mr. Mogul.’ ”
Is Nicki Minaj a brash gangsta or a cute, vulnerable coquette?
Well, both. For the complete interview with Minaj, pick up the April issue of Allure, on newsstands March 20.
