Peep Nicki Minaj flashing some of her goodies as she covers the latest issue of KING. In between the sheets she speaks on making that move to Hollywood and how she needs a Thugged Out Ken to her SuperFreak Barbie:
KING: History has shown that acting is the likeliest transition for rappers. Considering your background, do you want to dabble in Hollywood?
NICKI MINAJ: Of course.
What would be your dream role?
I’d like to play someone in a Tim Burton movie, where I get dressed up and painted and crazy.
You kind of do that now.
Then I want to be able to do some action stuff, like Angelina Jolie.
Like in Salt?
Yes! And then I’d like to just play a regular girl who, you know, is facing the world. Something really sentimental and organic, that girls all around the world can identify with. You know, how Jada Pinkett Smith did in Jason’s Lyric.
Classic film. You did mention earlier how everything has been time consuming. But when that time frees up, what kind of guy do you look for to be sentimental and organic with?
Um, I look for someone who is calm, someone who is strong enough to not have to win every argument, someone who allows a woman to be her crazy self and someone with a conscience not to feel less of a man. You know, someone who is able to honor his woman but also bring out the freak in his woman.
How should your Ken bring out the freak in you, Barbie?
Just being super aggressive when the time is right.
Are we talking about Mortal Kombat–style “Come here” aggression?
Just something that makes me feel like they’re in control, when we are behind closed doors.
Here the latest video from Drake that features Lil’ Wayne. They shot tjis clip just before Weezy went in to serve his sentence in Rikers. the vis is for “Miss Me” of Drake platinum selling debut album Thank Me Later.
Nicki Minaj reveals the title of her upcoming debut album dropping November 23 – Pink Friday
“My album comes out the 23rd, which is the week of Black Friday,” she explained. “So anyway, in honor of that great tradition and being that my album comes out that week, the album comes out on Tuesday and the following Friday is Black Friday. And since I feel I have the power to change anything I want, I’ve decided I will break tradition of Black Friday. We are going to switch it up this year, in honor of the Nicki Minaj album, and call that week Pink Friday and call my album Pink Friday. I love you all very much, and it’s Barbie bitch!”

Nicki Minaj & Drake covers XXL’s May 2010 issue and discuss their plans to dominate the industry in 2010, as both Young Money artists prepare to release their highly anticapted debut albums (from both fans and critics) later this year.
Nicki Minaj is set and preparing to bring the female MC back to the main stage in the Hip-Hop game. MTV caught up with the Young Money Femcee to chop it up about her upcoming video directed by Hype Williams for “Massive Attack” — her first single produced by Sean Garrett.
“The song is called ‘Massive Attack,’ ” she explained. “I’m excited for people to hear me … doing more than one verse. It’s really creative. Shout-out to [songwriter] Sean Garrett. I’ve always loved his style. He really kinda had a great idea of what I wanted to do. I wanted to be theatrical, but I am very serious about what I do. He was able to mesh that together and have a really fun but direct record, if that makes sense. … This video, it’s just, like, monsta. The video is a monsta.”
The video features appearances from Drake, Birdman & Amber Rose.
Last night in NYC during Jeezy’s set of the BP3 Tour he brought out Nicki Minaj, Drake & Lil Wayne (who happened to be able to show up because of a lil blaze) and shocked the crowd with his appearance and performance that the people attendance lost their minds.
