Nicki Minaj featured in Elle
Popular Trinidadian femcee Nicki Minaj covers Elle Magazine in its May Music Issue. The magazine will hit stands on April 12 and features the rapper on its cover in a black and white photo wearing a Maison Martin Margiela bodysuit. Nicki dons a variety of sexy outfits in the Elle shoot phographed by Terry Tsiolis.
Elle’s interview covers the following topics:
On her collaboration with Ludacris: “[I] chose to do punch lines and be comical, to show how bad I am lyrically, as opposed to how sexy I think I am.”
On her desire to be a Superhero: “I always wanted to play with the boys. I didn’t want to be a pawn in their game or have a sidekick role. I wanted to be more of a lead character—a superhero.”
On her Fashion: “I tend to like booties…[pause]”—she takes a beat to clarify: no sexual meaning implied—”and really flashy shoes: totally studded out, in five colors with an insane platform.”
