Nicki Minaj Outlines Five-Year Plan

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj just released her debut album Pink Friday earlier this week, but she already has big plans for the future.

The Young Money raptress tells Rolling Stone that her five-year plan includes a film career, a perfume line, a clothing line, and records that feature her singing as much as rapping.

Minaj has already explored the latter with her debut, singing on many of the album cuts. “There’s this fear of not being perfect,” she tells the magazine. “There’s some songs I just won’t write because I’m afraid of it not meeting my expectation of what I know that song could be. I don’t compete with other people, I compete with myself.”

The Harajuku Barbie, who recently launched a limited edition M·A·C lipstick, previously revealed her aspirations to win an Oscar. “We’re getting scripts,” she told DJ Drama. “We’re reading it, but we’re not saying nothing [yet].”

One thing is for sure, the head Barb has come a long way since moving from Trinidad at the age of five. “When I first came to America, I would go in my room and kneel down at the foot of my bed and pray that God would make me rich so that I could take care of my mother,” she says. “Because I always felt like if I took care of my mother, my mother wouldn’t have to stay with my father, and he was the one, at that time, that was bringing us pain. We didn’t want him around at all, and so I always felt like being rich would cure everything, and that was always what drove me.”

    i hope nicki realises that she will never be satisfied as long as she goes through life as a shopping list, ticking everything off. Just be happy where you are now. Just see where things are taking you….. wherever that may be. Usually things never pan out the way they are meant to be, just look @ Massive Attack. x

    @nickifan just being happy with where she is now … Other words being complacent ….is not a good mentality to have that’s a losers mentality and how can u climb the ladder if you happy being where u are … And she can be happy ticking things off when there is no more to tick off she still have to be in grind mode at this point Pink F is just the beginning she is not the undisputed best YET when that day comes then she can breathe a lil bit but complacency is what happened to lil Kim and we don’t ever want that to happen right ??ItsPinkFridayHoe

    @Brionna i do agree with you (i never ever want her to turn like Lil Kim!), obv she’s had big dreams and won big. She IS Nicki Minaj after all…. I just dont want her to, now get on top of herself and reach too far, and fail?? i rather her take 10 years to do everything, rather than 5 years. I dont wont nicki to burn out in 5 years after she’s ‘ticked’ everything. i want her to have this Moment 4 Life ;)

    Why do people want to limit Nicki? SHE SHOULD BE as ambitious and hungry as she always has been.

    She, just like EVERY ARTIST, is gonna have projects that aren’t hits. SO WHAT. Nicki Minaj is on fire and if she can avoid being dragged down by all the haters who can’t deal with her success…she’s gonna do things that no female artist has ever done.

    All the major players in the game have given Nicki big ups, including… Lauren Hill!
    Only the played out insecure negative bitches like Lil Kim and Foxy are hatin like they scared. THEM YESTERDAY BITCHES GOT THEY EGO’S STUCK ON BLAST, Too bad…because Nicki is not about to stop her ride. Lil Kim needs to recognize the crown is on THE NEW QUEEN OF RAP…Bow down or get smacked down!

    @Jho Billboard states her album is gonna debut at number two selling over 400k.. Thats Not A Flop Hunny.. and she had 8 songs on the hot 100 at once the most for anyartist including rap.. until that bitch Taylor Swift released her bullshit album.. And To Me Nicki Is Like Beyonce.. Everybody want them to sit down and go away but they still gone be here.. Ni99az Wanna Tell Em How To Do It.. But Niqqaz Never Did It

    I hope her album outsells her male counterparts. If anyone can do it, its definitely Nicki. I love Nicki. She is a strong, independent woman who has her head screwed on straight.

    Ugh, Jesus Christ. Really? How about being really awesome at one thing as opposed to really really really mediocre at lots of things? If this stupid bitch thinks she’s ever going to be in the same ZIPCODE as the Oscars, she’s more retarded than I thought and that’s saying something.

    @JHO her album has sold over 400,000 you dumb sk*nk

    [Reply]

  28. Shaytan

    if she sold 1 million copies and they spent 3 million promoting it.. Its a flop. If she sold 5,000 copies and they didn’t promote it could be considered a sucess..

    Nicki had the biggest Promotion of any album this year. Countless singles & videos ( all these things cost money)She had more exposure than any artist this year.. Yet only 360 -400.. Huge Let Down.

    West released all his music for free every Friday, 1 video and outsold her. Taylor swift released 1 single and (0) videos and sold 1 Mill

    Her album is going to do excellent considering the fact, she had not top 10 hit on the billboard. Kanye, Eminem, & Drake’s debuts all sold around 400,000 too. She’s trying to do a lot in five years, I don’t see how she’ll manage it all, take it one thing at a time Onika. On another topic, I love that picture…

    @Shaytan ?? She only put on 2 promotional videos for Pink Friday

    “Right Thru Me” and “Your Love” and shes about to break the record for Female Rap.

    and @TheTruth dont be bitter because Kim could never sale that much…he shit didn’t go platinum till 2001.

    Even if she falls off popularity wise as long as she has a good hustle behind the scenes she can do whatever she wants. A lot of these other rappers (male and female) didn’t make good or invest well and are now either struggling or living beyond their means to stay afloat.
    I hope this new generation learns from out predecesors mistakes.
