Young Money’s Nicki Minaj is slowly making her way back into the public spotlight. The hip-hop diva is featured in the new fashion-heavy issue of Vogue and dishes on progressing as a businesswoman.

Within her feature, Nicki briefly shares how she views the concept of transforming.

The Jamaica, Queens–raised prodigy has changed—and opened up—the rap world by being fearlessly adaptive in her ascent to the top of that game (and with the upcoming release of her long-awaited fourth album seems destined to remain there). She’s inhabited a male alter ego, Roman Zolanski, and a cyborg speed demon with pale-pink braids that whip the floor; she’s played a more delicate Barbie type while simultaneously proclaiming herself the “King.” “Transforming, to me, means changing for the better based on your experiences,” she says. “I’m equipped to be a better boss now.” (Vogue)

Earlier in the day, pics from Nicki’s Vogue photoshoot went viral.

Last weekend, comedian Lil Duval had his own theory about why Nicki had disappeared from social media.

Hours prior, New York radio personality DJ Clue shared the first shot of Nicki in weeks.
