Nicki Minaj Wants to Win an Oscar

She’s won BET Awards, BET Hip Hop Awards, and been nominated for an MTV Video Music Award before her debut album even dropped. But Nicki Minaj has her sights set on bigger prizes. The Harajuku Barbie sees Grammys and even an Oscar in her future.

When asked where she sees herself in five to 10 years, she told DJ Drama, “I definitely wanna have my charities off the ground. I wanted to do something where I was able to do scholarships for girls in the inner cities. It’s very important to me that the girls go to school if they want to go to college and further their education.”

But that’s not all on her lofty agenda. “And of course you know, lots of Grammys, an Oscar maybe, who knows.”

Nicki is already reading scripts that may one day land her on stage at the Academy Awards. “We’re getting scripts,” said a tight-lipped Minaj. “We’re reading it, but we’re not saying nothing [yet].”

Before she takes over the silver screen, Nicki is planning to head out on tour next year in support of her debut Pink Friday. “Right now we have two options for a tour that start at the top of the year, 2011. I’ll make it public really soon.”
