Vogue Has Nicki Minaj Feeling Blue In New Interview [Pic + Excerpt]


Nicki Minaj scores a feature in the latest issue of Vogue. The publication takes a look at the rapper/singer's impressive accomplishments racked up in a short amount of time and her lifestyle.


Check out an excerpt from her interview below.


Born in Trinidad, Minaj came to the States when she was five, grew up in Queens, and attended the prestigious LaGuardia high school for the performing arts (it was the model for the school in Fame). Her fashion education also began there. “I was dressing in Tommy Hilfiger baggy shirts and Boss jeans, but then I met a person who dressed like a tiny lady—pantsuits, heels, lots of makeup. I thought she was larger than life. She once did my makeup—I had never seen myself made up before. I didn’t want to wash it off; I felt like I had one day to live this fantasy of being a glamour girl.” 

She currently lives in a condo in L.A., where she moved for the weather but also to escape “some bad memories.” Though she declines to divulge much about her personal life, she readily admits to snuggling up in hotel beds, unwinding after a performance by watching Forensic Files and Judge Judy. Minaj insists she’s terrible at small talk and never goes out much, except for the occasional foray to a favorite restaurant. “I went to Negril the other night, and I brought, like, ten of the fans who were waiting outside with me, and bought them all food!”

Now Minaj is expected to be a glamour girl every day. Her ensembles—“They’re costumes, not outfits”—are often custom-made or imported from Japan, where little-known designers like Shojono Tomo supply items like the nutty plastic apron Minaj wore during New York Fashion Week last September. (If she has yet to market her distinctive naughty–baby doll look, Minaj has already entered the world of cosmetics, launching a nail-polish collaboration with OPI and becoming a 2012 M.A.C. Viva Glam spokesperson.) In her downtime, she is far from label-obsessed. “If I can combine designer things with other things, I’m a happy camper.” Not so with accessories. At one time she was spending $50,000 a month on “Giuseppe, Versace, YSL, and Fendi shoes. And I bought tons of Vuitton bags. When you’re a young girl from Queens, you’re going to stock up on those bags.”

Unfortunately it aion't black people that is going to make her rich, y'all could hate as you want, (cuz hate c*** from a certain admiration or fear that most broke poeple has to deal with) ... rich people think on using echother's assets to make more money ... meanwhile she conquers countries like japan and others in europe when her own NY peeps just letting hard black s*** come out of their mouth .... if that who she wants to be , who the f*** is y'all ... so everyoine got to get shot or be mean claiming blood for you to listen to their music.. and y'all wonder why black people are not reaching where theysuppose to be at.... dumb f****.. 2012 for y'all is stick to rick ross's d*** and keep on licking the s*** of nicki's a**, meanwhile muhufuckers bank accounts just generating gwap

She says Hollywood didn't change her?? I liked her better when she was down to Earth, cool and humble. When she comes back down to Earth some I will like her more again.
