Nicki Minaj Talks ‘Mixtape Nicki,’ Babies, & Biggest Fear in Complex

Nicki Minaj

As she gears up for The Pinkprint, Nicki Minaj has been gracing the pages of various magazines. Following Billboard, GQ, and V Magazine, the rap queen covers Complex.

She towers above a building in red heels and a black bob on the cover and shows off her impressive body of work while posing against various architectural backdrops.

In the interview, Nicki opens up about returning to her roots, her friendship with Drake, and her plans to start a family after her fifth album.

“I have to put out all six of my albums, contractually,” she said. “After the fifth, I’ll probably have my baby. I wonder if I’m going to be one of those women who balances my child with a career. I always said, ‘When I have my baby, it’s going to be all about my baby.’ I don’t want the child feeling like they don’t have all of my attention, so I always said, ‘I’m going to take a little break.’ But we’ll see.”

But before she puts down the mic, she will release her most personal album yet, The Pinkprint, on December 15. “The album is a dope balance of vulnerability and strength, of inspiration and of not being politically correct,” she said. “It’s the best of both worlds. It’s tapping into both sides.”

Drake and Nicki Minaj

It was a Young Money reunion on set of the video for “Only.” Nicki Minaj linked up with her YMCMB brothers Drake and Lil Wayne while shooting scenes for the dark and sexy clip.

In the first photos from the set, the rap queen—donning a black bra and panties with sky-high platform heels and a veil—showed off her banging body while giving Drake and Weezy a peep show. Drizzy, who received a lap dance from Nicki in her “Anaconda” video, sat back in a chair and enjoyed the view.

Weezy couldn’t hide his excitement either, ogling Nicki’s “tit teez on fleek” while holding a bottle of her Myx moscato. Chris Brown is also featured on the Dr. Luke, Cirkut, and J Mike-produced song.

Look for the video to premiere soon, while Nicki’s third album The Pinkprint arrives December 15.

Rihanna Channels ‘Scandal’s’ Olivia Pope During White House Visit

Rihanna

While in Washington, D.C. for a Veteran’s Day concert, Rihanna paid a visit to the White House on Monday. The pop superstar and her crew got a private tour of President Obama’s digs at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and also had some fun reenacting scenes from ABC’s hit political drama “Scandal.”

While standing at the podium in the press briefing room, RiRi pretended to be “Scandal” Press Secretary Abby Whelan (“#heyAbby,” she wrote), and posed with her pals including BFFs Melissa Forde and Jenn Rosales in the West Wing.

“West Wing Posse!! We wanna be O.P.A. so bad!!! #DayAtTheWhiteHouse,” she said.

With purse in hand, the fashionista stood at a payphone and channeled Kerry Washington’s well-dressed character Olivia Pope.

“CYRUS!!! LET ME IN!!” #DayAtTheWhiteHouse,” she said, referring to Cyrus Beene (played by Jeff Perry), and also shouted out Tony Goldwyn’s character President Fitzgerald Grant (“Fitz, darling…”).

The real Olivia Pope, Kerry Washington, approved, retweeting a photo and writing, “True #gladiators.”

Later today, Rihanna will salute the nation’s veterans by performing at “The Concert for Valor” at the National Mall. Other performers include Eminem, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, and Carrie Underwood.
