Nicki Minaj for GQ Magazine [Nov 2014]On the Anaconda video’s huge success: “I don’t know what there is to really talk about, I’m being serious. I just see the video as being a normal video. I think the video is about what girls do. Girls love being with other girls, and when you go back to us being younger, we would have slumber parties and we’d be dancing with our friends. [Minaj’s character in the video] is just talking about two guys that she dated in the past and what they’re good at and what they bought her and what they said to her. It’s just cheeky, like a funny story.” Read more, here.

Nicki Minaj for L’Uomo Vogue’s Music Issue [Fall 2014] On having babies: ”The time is not yet ripe, but when I decide to get married and become a mother I would like to take a hiatus and dedicate myself completely to my child”. 
On her her career, and Beyonce:  ”I was flying in a private jet, tired from the performance and the jetlag, but instead of sleeping, I worried about all of the deadlines waiting for me in Los Angeles. I got really scared – I had a sort of panic attack”. The problem is that Minaj always wants to be in control of everything and is not good at delegating to others. Luckily, however, beyond the stress it brought on, her trip to Paris helped her to confront these issues with someone who has made similar choices – and to come out of it with her chin up. “Seeing Beyoncé with her daughter and husband was so tender, and it showed me that it is possible to be an animal on stage and a caring mother at the same time”.
