Nicki Minaj Covers Fader, Talks Sexy Image, Also Speaks On Lil Wayne's Prison Sentence To MTV
"Anybody that knows me knows that I have a very, very bipolar personality, so one minute I'm excited and the next minute I'm crying and the next minute I'm cussing and yelling and the next minute I'm singing Enya," she said to FADER writer Julianne Escobedo, "And the point is, my rap style now reflects my true personality."
The New York native also opened up about her image, "I don't want people to think I'm up there trying to be cute. I'm trying to entertain, and entertaining is more than exuding sex appeal," she added, "I wish I could fricking remember the first boob that I signed. I don’t know why I did it, but now I can’t go anywhere and not do it. People come up to me wherever I am, girls, sexy girls, like, ‘Can you sign my boob?’ I mean, niggas in the club look at me like I’m a pimp. They like, What? Cause they be fly chicks. I don’t know, but I do know it’s a great thing.”
Earlier this month, Nicki, who signed to Young Money Entertainment last year, talked to MTV about Lil Wayne's prison sentence. "It's sad, because he doesn't deserve to go to jail," she continued, "he's such a strong person, and it's weird — he's sitting there doing videos. I found myself e-mailing him about something I wanted him to do for me. When I thought about it, I was like, 'It's so selfish,' 'cause it's, like, what is the mind frame of somebody that's supposed to go to jail for months and never served that amount of time in jail?"
Wayne will be sentenced on March 2 and spend one year in Rikers Island prison for charges stemming from criminal possession in which he pleaded guilty.
