Nicki Minaj Scores No. 1 Movie with ‘The Other Woman’

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj can add another No. 1 to her résumé. The rapper-turned-actor helped lead The Other Woman to a box office victory over the weekend.

The romantic comedy co-starring Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, and Kate Upton opened with $24.7 million in North America, unseating Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

Nicki makes her big-screen acting debut as Diaz’ opinionated assistant Lydia in the film, directed by Nick Cassavetes.

“I was so nervous,” Nicki said of her role. “I felt a lot of pressure ’cause I am sitting this close to Cameron Diaz and I know if I don’t get my lines right, she has to do her lines over. That pressure was scary.”

The debut exceeded analysts’ forecasts of $17 million.

This is not Nicki’s first No. 1 film. She previously voiced a woolly mammoth in the animated movie Ice Age: Continental Drift, which opened with $46 million in July 2012.

    @Queen of Queens, I dont care who Checking for who!!!, Missy is the Queen of Rap of All time… Awards, Songwriting credits, producing credits, video directing credits, platinum albums with historic videos you wish the Trick could have that creative genius mind to create. So until she can accomplish what my queen has done, she belongs at the bottom where she belongs, Ignorant Stans!!

Why are we waiting for the next album she supposed to be the Queen of Rap now. I swear yall are some true Dummies out there SMH LMAO!!

    Andy Reply:

    @B-Rad, I never said she wasn’t the Queen. I was just responding your dumb comment of Missy’s having more than Nicki. DUH obviously, dumbass, Missy debut album is 15 years old. That’s why I said wait. And if Missy is such of a Queen why she isn’t currently reigning? WOW such a powerful “Queen”

    @B-Rad, that Grammy shit it played. Tupac, Snoop and Nas never won Grammys and their easily among the most influential rappers ever. You still put faith in the Grammys as far as hip hop is concerned? Do your research and you’d quickly lose it. Kim never won a Grammy for any of her best work. Macklemore won a Grammy with his mediocre album. DO YOUR RESEARCH.

    And as far as Nicki’s plastic surgery? Kim’s plastic surgery didn’t affect her holding as a dope from 96-2006. Whitney Houston had a boob job and work on her face and it took nothing away from her talent. That plastic surgery sh*t late.

    You can disagree with Nicki being queen but come with a better argument and better points please.

    @T, chile please…. grammys might not mean anything to us or hold its value like it once did,but I bet all of those u named would’ve loved to have one just like they want to top the sn billboard charts and sell gold and plat songs. Missy and Lauryn hill or the real Queens of rap. Everybody is impatiently waiting on the Missy album just like a lot of ppl or still waiting on a Dr. Dre or Outkast album. Even Nicki got mad herself when she got snubbed from the grammys with that horrible PFRR album. So u can miss me with that bs u talkin

    Andy Reply:

    @EveRyder, and because of that I hate the Grammy, because people want it so badly because they think it demonstrate they are good. BULL-SH.T. Bye with your sh.t. Nicki Minaj is A RAPPER, she’s not in that wackiest asses category of “female rappers”, she leave it years ago.

    B-Rad Reply:

    @T, First and Foremost!!! How dare you put a name like Snoop Dogg into the equation of anything King or Queens related, Yall some Sick Trolls! Snoop Dogg can’t call himself the King of anything. Hell Naw!! Snoop Dogg never deserved a Grammy anyway period. And the Grammys still hold value whether you like it or not, Don’t get mad because your Plastic Barbie didn’t win or get nominated Why?!?! Because she sold out to the Pop cringe and lost all her street credibility. Kim didn’t win why because she didn’t deserved to win simple as that. Lil’ Kim couldn’t compete with the likes of Lauryn Hill and Missy that’s why she didnt win a damn thing. Mackelmore got their grammy because they worked they Assess off and went against the grain of today’s Hip Hop Cultural repetition. As far as Plastic Surgery goes, My Queen Missy never had plastic surgery or breast implants, or Fake Ass Shots, she sold millions of records without any of that, So please give me something more to educate you dummies more on, obviously you don’t know your own facts and research, Dumb Ass Stans!!!

    Her role in the movie was so short. No one watched it because of her #justsaying

    The Pink Print Reply:

    @Bowtobey, I beg to differ. Many People watched because of her. You can twitter search ‘The Other Woman’ and you’ll be surprised to see how many watched for her. Plus, her role was the MOST ACCLAIMED role in the Movie based on reviews from Movie Critics.

    @Bowtobey, actually almost a third of the ppl watched it because of her…she took it from $17M to $25M due to curiosity from the public…the size of her role didn’t matter…she expresses numerous times she had a small role

    @Bowtobey, actually the only reason I watched this was becuz of Nicki’s short part in it. Otherwise I would have not spent my $12 to go see this.

    @Face, She was still a part of the MAIN cast after Cameron, Leslie and Kate!!! Just like if a artist FEATURES on a grammy-winning song the FEATURED ARTIST also wins a grammy!!!

    @Face, Same with a #1 song!!!

    Mandela Barb Reply:

    @Face, They brought her along in the press run last week because they understand the importance that she bears in pulling an audience. Perhaps she cannot take credit for all of the success, but she certainly doubled the amount of media attention this movie got just because her name was tacked on it.

    @Andy, just go sit ur tired ass in a corner and stop with these dumbass comments. Nicki don’t compare to Cameron when it comes to the Big Screen. Kmsl at how brainless u barbz are bcuz nobody in their right mind is gonna pay $10 or more to see a amatuer actress for a couple mins and think she’s the one pulling in all the viewers.

    @8KEveRyder, but she’s the main reason this movie was highly successful tho… I don’t understand what you don’t understand. Is just something obvious.

    Nicki didn’t score anything. Her name isn’t even on the official Movie poster. She has a small role, but did not carry the movie to success. Also she is no longer the current Queen of rap. She had two flop albums, back to back, and no Grammy Wins either. I guy Azalea is up next.

    @HeIsAlwaysCorrect, Flop albums? I’ll never understand why ppl say that when Roman Reloaded was the highest selling Hip Hop album of that year and The Re-Up wasn’t an album, but a re-release.

  16. prince

    all of nicki’s parts equal a good 20 to 25 mins.. its not her movie nor was starring in it lol.. cameron and leslie carried the hell out of this movie. Cameron is becoming that IT girl with acting, she has like 3 more movies coming out this year….Nicki was good in her role tho. I just dont like the way she talk lol but other than that, this is a must see movie. thumps up for Cameron, Leslie, Nicki and the rest of the cast….. As far Nicki being the queen of rap? yea no1 she is more consistent than other female rappers but queen of rap no!! i dont even consider her to be rap for real, she hasn’t done a rap album yet. she raps on it but its not all rap. is she the highest chick out right now, yes…but when you steal another chick imagine and add every shit to it…. ummmm okay… but i will say she is very pretty chick.. the way she is dressing and shit now, she should have been doing that from the beginning!
