Few artists have as many projects in the works between music, fashion and other endeavors as Nicki Minaj . The 33-year-old rapper says that as a child, she didn’t want to make music. She wanted to be an actress.
“Musically, I feel very fulfilled,” she says, “and now I can start tapping into my acting world, where it’s about passion and not about the money. It’s wanting to be what I set out to be when I was in high school: an actress.”
Her last LP was 2014’s The Pinkprint, which was certified double platinum last month. While working o it, Minaj was dealing with the breakup with her longtime boyfriend, Safaree Samuels, and her emotions are evident throughout the project. She says that she is allowing herself a hiatus from music in order to embrace her current situation, which includes working on a comedy television show about her childhood, a role in Barbershop 3 and a relationship with Meek Mill.
