Video: Nicki Minaj Talks Great Expectations, Competing with Kanye

Nicki Minaj and Trevor Nelson

During her whirlwind promo tour in the U.K., Nicki Minaj sat down with BBC Radio 1Xtra’s Trevor Nelson for a chat at her swanky hotel.

Once you get past her distracting outfit and the camera panning into her cotton candy-like hairdo, you’ll hear the head Barb speak about the pressure she felt while recording her debut album Pink Friday and how it’s a “blessing” being compared to established artists like Kanye West and Eminem.

“They’re comparing me to people who’ve been out forever. They’re comparing my album to Kanye’s album,” she said. “The sales in the States, we’re neck and neck. And people don’t realize I am a brand new artist. This is my first album. These guys have been around for a long time.”

The DJ gave her a CD with British singer Jessie J’s music as a parting gift. Maybe we’ll get to hear that collaboration after all?

    Why don’t you guys just rename this site to “Nicki-Up”? There’s news about her everyday, we don’t need to hear what she wears and stuff like that?
