Nicki Minaj Says ‘Ice Age’ Role Was Written Just for Her

Nicki Minaj will make her foray into Hollywood by lending one of her many voices to the 3D animated film Ice Age: Continental Drift alongside Jennifer Lopez, Queen Latifah, and Drake. In a new interview with MTV News, the rap diva explained how she landed the voice-over gig.

“The original role that I was up for I didn’t get,” she said in her British accent. “So I said, ‘Oh, OK, whatever.’ I was really mad, and the next thing you know, they called me and they said, ‘We wrote in a part just for you ’cause we really want you to be a part of this movie.'”

Minaj recorded two voices and left it up to the producers to decide which they preferred. “I just was screaming and so excited, and I went in and I had a blast. I did it as two different voices,” she added. “We’ll see what happens.”
