What’s on Nicki Minaj’s iPod?

Nicki Minaj

When she’s not popping up on records by everyone from M.I.A. to Trey Songz, Nicki Minaj is busy recording her debut album Pink Friday. So what does the Harajuku Barbie listen to during her downtime? Entertainment Weekly reveals the fierce females and familiar faces that make up her iPod playlist.

Drake – “Find Your Love”
I love the entire album, but “Find Your Love” is like a movie. It reminds you of something, but you kind of don’t know what.

Lil Wayne – Rebirth
I’m [a guest performer] on that one. And I just like that he was able to cross over into rock/pop a little bit. I’m a fan of when people do what you don’t expect.

Mariah Carey
I always have Mariah for when I just feel like curling up in bed. On her last album, it’s “H.A.T.E.U.”

Beyoncé – “Poison”
When I tell you it gives me life, like, it gives me life. Her voice is effortless. It’s badass, like, “I know I’m the best.” I love the melody, I love the cadence. It’s playful, but it’s just so in-your-face. It’s dope and it’s creative.

Rihanna – Good Girl Gone Bad
I love “Sell Me Candy.” That’s one of my freakin’ favorites. Timbaland produced. I love that and “Rehab.”

    Everyone love queen Rihanna. I she the tranny ciara did not make the cut. No one check for the reject. Her entertain card was revoke time to be Rihanna cheographer or Beyonce back up dancer. She’ll make more money than sell 5000 records

    i hate celebrity ipod lists because it’s always the same pattern. they pick songs from people they work with, people on their label, from the most popular people out, or from themselves.



  18. WhatTheF

    @Steve and how can Nicki Micopycat diss Queen Bee in her tracks, but then copy her? And I never said I don’t like her, I’m just stating facts. She is a copycat.
