Nicki Minaj shows her true colors in Vogue's March 2012 issue.
If you told us Nicki Minaj was actually an alien (or some kind of Frankenstein robot à la David Guetta's "Turn Me On" video), we wouldn't really raise an eyebrow. Now the powers that be (Vogue magazine, obvi) are trying to tell us that Nicki Minaj is some kind of Smurf-human, and we're all, "Duh." The lady's cut from a different cloth, OK? As she said herself, "I'm the baddest in the school/I'm the baddest in the game/Excuse me, honey, but nobody's in my lane." (Street cred to all of you who can properly identify that song. Hint: Check her mixtapes.)
But don't let the outfit (skin?) fool you, guys -- Nicki Minaj isn't blue at all. In the latest issue of Vogue, the Harajuku Barbie opens up about how privileged she feels to be living the life she always dreamed of: "I went to Negril the other night, and I brought, like, 10 of the fans who were waiting outside with me, and bought them all food!" Hanging out with Nicki AND free food? ULTIMATE FANTASY.
Nicki also reveals what her other goals are in life besides music: to open "an enormous foundation to nurture girls." Nicki continued, "The Nicki Minaj girl is a fun, artsy girl who can become a fierce force to be reckoned with on Wall Street! They hang on my every word, so I tell them, go to school, be ambitious." She forgot "be sure to incorporate as much color into your wardrobe as humanly possible."
