Video: Nicki Minaj Makes French Connection on ‘Le Grand Journal’

After her assault on London last week, Nicki Minaj caught a train to Paris to sit down on French talk show “Le Grand Journal” today. The international Barb, dressed in a frilly black jacket with wavy blonde tresses, discussed everything from toning down her bad bitch image for her younger fans to waving the flag for female MCs.

“Inside I feel like a tiger, but on the outside, I look more like a little pussycat,” said a demure Nicki. “But I think that hip-hop needed a girl right now to take control, so I’ve just been doing it both, being as bad as the boys and a pretty girl at the same time.”

French fans will be able to make out the dialogue. Otherwise, break out your translator.
