“If I can do that, I’ll feel complete,” she says. “One day, when I start getting a couple gray hairs, maybe it will all be only acting. I just never know. . . I’ve kind of become the poster child for doing the things that no one expects.” PHOTOS: Nicki Minaj’s craziest hairstyles ever In fact, long before she became famous, the “High School” rapper dreams of becoming a lawyer. “I just loved the thought of going into a courtroom with mostly men and defending someone — just being able to persuade people with your words,” she says. “It seems glamorous in a way. Very inspiring and ballsy.” Nicki Minaj is Marie Claires August cover girl Credit: Satoshi Saikusa/Marie Claire That dream never came to fruition, of course, as Minaj went on to become a multiplatinum recording artist. During her Australian tour in 2012, however, the musician tells Marie Claire she had a “weird epiphany” and decided to pursue another lifelong dream: motherhood.

Nicki Minaj Asserts ‘Baddest Bitch’ Status With Two New Music Videos
Hayden Panettiere Like Hayden Panettiere and Nicki Minaj may have both worn a stained glass-inspired frock, but neither blond beauty looked ready to go to church. Nicki Minaj, Hayden Panettiere (X17online.com/Startraks) What they wore: A merino wool, long sleeved, stained glass print Alexander McQueen mini dress from the atelier’s Pre-Autumn/Winter collection retailing at $1,195. [Related: Fashion Faceoff: Kate Moss vs. Lady Gaga ] When they wore it: The “Nashville” star stopped by “The Late Show With David Letterman” in the form-fitting frock on August 28. The former “American Idol” judge hit the town a mere three weeks prior and practically looked like she could be Panettiere’s doppelganger. How they styled it: The “Starships” performer worked her curves in the dress and looked more demure than normal with a tame, blond wig, minimal jewelry, red pumps, and a pale pink pucker. The 24-year-old actress kicked up her heels in a pair of red booties, gold bangles, ruby red lips, and a brand new hairdo. Panettiere debuted her blond, blunt bangs and choppy cut during her appearance. Judge’s scorecard: While the looks are nearly identical, we’re leaning toward giving Minaj the fashion prize. Her sleek pumps and more neutral lips accent the dress, but don’t overpower it. What do you think?
The Young Money cash queen has spent the summer lending her voice to tracks for Chris Brown, Busta Rhymes, Mario, Ciara and Nelly, blessing them all with stunning music video appearances to match. Well, the rapping Barbie shows no signs of slowing down. On Tuesday (September 3), Minaj appeared as a guest in two new music videos: one from DJ Khaled and another from Wale . Khaled’s “I Wanna Be With You” is the first collaboration between the two since the charismatic DJ brought a 10-karat diamond ring up to MTV News and cooked up a marriage proposal for his YMCMB labelmate. There were no vows exchanged in the video, but Nicki managed to stand out in the Colin Tilley-directed clip, which also features Rick Ross and Future. In the clip, which premiered on MTV Jams Tuesday, a blond-haired Nicki sits against a purple backdrop, wearing a white dress and rapping her rapid-fire rhymes. “Baddest bitch, I’m the catalyst/ Ain’t never been done, bitch I added this,” she rhymes. Throughout the clip Nicki keeps a serious tone about her, once again proving that she can hold her own when matched up against the boys. Wale’s “Clappers” takes on a drastically different tone, with Nicki sporting a drastically different look. The latest single from Wale’s The Gifted is an ode to big butts that is set to a go-go-inspired instrumental. After the MMG standout and guest spitter Juicy J get their go, Nicki brings up the rear in the rump-shaking party, wearing a yellow tank top and pink tights. “Got ass for days, come activate/ This ass on fire, evacuate,” she rhymes while she twerks for the camera.
as in applaud. When we first heard Wale ‘s “Clappers” featuring Juicy J and Nicki Minaj in June, we immediately jumped to the conclusion that the song was about one thing, and one thing only: butts. Now that we’ve seen the video, however, we think we understand what the track’s truly about: still butts. C’mon, the refrain is “Shorty’s got a big ole butt, oh yeaaaaaaaah!” It’s not, like, a spoiler alert. The clip accurately portrays that in-the-club wildness and the big fish (big butt?) tales you tell your boys the next day. One teensy tiny complaint though: Where’s Miley Cyrus ? Watch Wale’s NSFW “Clappers” video featuring Juicy J and Nicki Minaj after the jump. Granted, maybe we’ve developed a slight Pavlovian response to anything butt, twerk, or booty-pop-related every since Miley’s VMA performance — but we can’t help it! Seriously, Wale, the “Wrecking Ball” singer’s totally down to do whatever it takes to make a lasting, “history-making” impression , but she won’t be available forever! With a guest spot on Mike WiLL ‘s “23” and that rumored Kanye West remix of “Black Skinhead” on the way, Miley’s probably gonna have to set up a dance card for her booty so that it doesn’t get all twerked out! Get in while the twerking’s good, Wale!
Stealing the show! Nicki Minaj struts her stuff as she joins Chris Brown in new video for Love More
In a new twist, the clip is also directed by Brown, and he certainly shows off an eye for the dazzling in the loud and raucous video. Scroll down for video… Tech touches: Brown’s video for Love More, released Thursday, features futuristic flourishes – like this odd x-ray imagery Sex sells: Minaj drops a sexually explicit verse on Love More while strutting her stuff on the catwalk The video, which premiered on Vevo on Thursday night, opens with a blonde beauty waking Brown up to go to the club. There are odd, randomly futuristic touches in Love More’s early imagery – Brown’s skeleton glows blue behind his balcony wall, for instance, and his footsteps leave Tron-blue prints on the ground. Then comes a humourous cameo: Comedian Nick Swardson sits shotgun as Brown pops into his SUV and asks how things are going. Sense of humour: Brown picked funnyman Nick Swardson for a cameo appearance in his video Wake up! ‘I just fell asleep,’ Brown complains to his friend, who wakes him up to go to the club ‘Just survivin’ the game. Got my tricks in the bag, my stable!’ Swardson cracks, pointing to the three girls in the back seat. ‘Makin’ it rain. Got $30, cash. Making – it – rain,’ he adds. The song itself finally begins to play as Swardson gets excited: ‘This is the song!’ he yells, oblivious to the fact that it’s Brown’s track. Vroom: Brown brings his Mercedes SUV to the curb outside of the club Try again? Brown and Swardson share an incredibly awkward handshake before they go their separate ways in the club The SUV eventually rolls up to the club, where Brown finally gets an opportunity to show off his signature dance moves.
