Nicki Minaj Interviews Herself for ELLE Magazine

Nicki Minaj wears many hats—rapper, singer, fashion designer, and judge on “American Idol,” but now she’s taking on a new role. The rap diva plays reporter, interviewing herself during a mock interview for ELLE magazine. An inquisitive Nicki asks the superstar Nicki about her childhood and what she wears at home.

“I love black thongs,” says superstar Nicki, while offering other wild quotes. “I’m gonna be artificially inseminated so I don’t ever have sex with anyone.”

Nicki graces the cover of ELLE’s April issue. She trades the wigs and makeup for a more natural look, but it wasn’t easy for her. “To go in front of the camera, without pink lips or big ol’ crazy lashes—you know, nothing—I felt naked. It was scary!” she said. “So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes.”

She also revealed that she was bullied as a child. “I went through a lot of bullying early on. Girls made my life a living hell.”
