Young Money star Nicki Minaj reflects on her life and what she expects to gain in the future throughout a new feature in Cosmopolitan magazine.
Based on a small excerpt, Nicki admits national recognition and starting a family all rest in her future.
Having gotten past those low points, the MC tells the magazine that she has firm plans for a bright future. “I will have put out five albums and will have an Oscar and Grammys,” she predicted. “And I will be getting married and, a couple of years after that will have a bun in the oven. … My whole life is about being Nicki Minaj now. It’s a never-ending saga.” (MTV)
Last year, the rapper said she hoped to one day make contributions to international countries.
“When I was little I would’ve loved to go to dance class, but my mother couldn’t afford it. I want to get some real top-notch buildings and teachers to help kids sing, play instruments and dance. And I want to do things in Trinidad and Africa…I’d write a sketch comedy, ‘Nicki Minaj Presents: Curb Your Enthusiasm.’ I’d star in it with my best friend and Larry David because he makes me cry laughing. I love dry humor.” (VIBE)
Months ago, Minaj detailed her interest to work alongside blockbuster actor Will Smith and director Tim Burton.
As far as her acting aspirations go, she’s looking for a bit more than the usual rapper-to-actor transitions (meaning we won’t be seeing Nicki’s version of Killa Season). “I want to work with Will Smith, because he’s a very successful rapper-turned-actor and therefore a role model,” Minaj said. “And Tim Burton because I love his crazy imagination. He comes up with these characters that are just so fascinating and the costumes and just creates these whole worlds.” (Entertainment Weekly)
Able to balance music and acting, rapper Busta Rhymes recently spoke to SOHH about Minaj’s trend-setting ways.
“I don’t think there’s anything missing from what she’s doing,” Busta recently told SOHH when asked what advice he could offer Minaj in reference to launching a film career. “She’s a new artist. She’s doing more than what new artists do as far as being everywhere and having the success and acknowledgment that she’s had. I’m just saying the only thing left for her to do, from what I can see, and not only the thing left for her to do but the next thing that I would like to see her do is films.” (SOHH)
