Yesss!!!! Nicki Minaj is slaying the October 2014 pages of L’Uomo Vogue magazine!
Now that Nicki Minaj is technically a model since signing to Iman’s modeling agency, it’s time for her to put in some work. If landing the cover of Vogue is just her first major modeling job I can only imagine what’s coming up next.
For the issue, Nicki dresses up as a sexy business woman while rocking a super cute black bob. I must say that I am loving this Nicki Minaj. I do not miss the crazy, multi color outfits!
See what Nicki told the mag about performing with Beyonce, wanting a family and her career plan!
On her professional and personal year plan
“I gave myself a time limit to reach my professional goals. I don’t want to work my whole life without ever experiencing the joys of a family.”
On earning respect
“At first no one took me seriously. In the world of rap, women are usually relegated to the choir”.
On her hiphop businessman idol Jay Z
“It’s no coincidence that we have the same Zodiac sign – Sagittarius….I want to build my empire. In my field, I have always seen men do it – from Diddy to Dr. Dre to Jay-Z. Now it’s a woman’s turn.”
On her tumultuous upbringing being brought to NYC from Trinidad and living with her crack addict father
“That experience had a profound influence on my way of being a woman – never let a man cross the line or control me, especially in my career”.
On starting a family
“Family has always been very important to me, and that is why I want to wait until the right moment before starting my own. Right now I am too busy, but at a certain point the situation will change….[I want] a traditional family with “an upright man, who will take care of me. The time is not yet ripe, but when I decide to get married and become a mother”, she adds, speaking of her future soul mate, “I would like to take a hiatus and dedicate myself completely to my child”.
On performing with Beyonce on the OTR tour
“Seeing Beyoncé with her daughter and husband was so tender, and it showed me that it is possible to be an animal on stage and a caring mother at the same time”.
