The Queen Barbie touched base on everything from her experiences trying to get signed, to her controversially odd Grammy performance earlier this year.
She’s no longer that street corner sweetheart we grew to love during her mixtape days – and honestly, that’s not entirely a bad thing.
Nicki's grown past her own expectations and is all about bossing through her own career.
And to all the dot com criticism (which Nicki says she doesn’t entertain), she admits that “people thought [she] was going to crumble… [but they] don’t know how [she’s] built. There’s nothing you can do to [her] now, that she hasn’t gone through 50 times worse in her life.”
“When I first started doing music and I was signed to production companies and management and stuff like that, [people would] purposely not tell me that record companies were interested in signing me," Nicki admitted. “It was a lot of psychological manipulation going on and that’s why I’m so aggressive in my business life.”
Warner Music must be kicking themselves right now, because Nicki has transformed into one of the most lucrative pop culture icons in today’s industry.
But her recording career isn't the only thing Ms. Minaj speaks about. She also shares details about her early relationship with Irv Gotti and her current label mates, addresses the romance rumors between herself and Scaff Bezzy and speaks on what's next up for her growing empire.
It's Barbie, B*TCH!
