Today seems to be a day full of my favorite celebs. Nicki Minaj, (in my opinion the best female rapper of all time) is featured in Elle’s May 2011 issue which hits newsstands April 12.
Nicki posed for a number of sexy pics all shot by photographer Terry Tsiolis.
On her collaborative effort 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 lead character in life: “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 fashionable nature: “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.”
Here are her pics, yay or nay? I think she looks absolutely incredible and this is so classy and sophisticated for her. LOVE that she is gracing the covers of such high profile magazines and is getting the recognition she deserves as an artist:
