While talking about her new album The Pinkprint, Nicki said in it she talks about “My family, loss, death, guilt… I’ve struggled with a lot of guilt.”
“When you’re working and you’re busy and you’re successful, no matter what, something suffers, whether it’s your relationship with your mother, your relationship with your whole family, not being able to go to your brother’s graduation. Certain things suffer and get put on the back burner.”
Nicki said about her hit song Anaconda, “I wanted to create a song that embraced curvy women. I wanted to be sexual but be playful with it.”
Nicki has been linked to her music video director Alex Loucas since her break-up with Safaree Samuels.
When asked about future plans for a family she said, “After the fifth album, I’ll probably have my baby. I wonder if I’m going to be one of those women who balances my child with a career.
“I always said, ‘When I have my baby, it’s going to be all about my baby.'”
“I don’t want the child feeling like they don’t have all of my attention, so I always said, ‘I’m going to take a little break.’ But we’ll see.'”

Nicki Minaj talks to Billboard Magazine
Nicki Minaj has just reached her 56th hit on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart with her collaboration with Lil Wayne/Drake/Chris Brown on the son named ‘Only’.
This gives her the most Billboard Hot 100 hits of all the female rappers. And overall she’s at No. 5 for female artists behind Aretha Franklin, Taylor Swift, Dionne Warwick and Madonna.
Billboard magazine talked to Nicki about her soon to be released album ‘Pinkprint’.
The 31 year old rapper said she work as hard behind the scenes as she does on stage, “I’m on 15 to 25 conference calls every few days strategizing with my team. I think a lot of artists sit back and have it done for them.”
“Sometimes as women in the industry, if you’re sexy or like doing sexy things, some people subconsciously negate your brain. They think you’re stupid.”
Nicki says she wanted this new album to be her best yet, “It’s corny when rappers feel like they’ve made it and they don’t have to prove themselves anymore. You should always be competing. You should always be trying to show that you’re the best. My album is going to be important to hip-hop.”
Nicki Minaj poses for V Magazine
On the cover of V magazine’s Winter 2014/15 edition, Nicki talks about the importance of her work to young woman and her huge success in the male-dominated field of rap, telling how she ‘pushes the envelope’.
She told V magazine, “I love women who take control, who set standards, and who believe in themselves enough to lead the way in terms of their career.”
Adding, “When I win and when I lose, I take ownership of it, because I really am in charge of what I do.”
“There are a lot of strong male rappers, who’ve influenced me a great deal in terms of my skill, my flow, and my business-savvy side. But at the end of the day, I still want to inspire women.”
Nicki explained further, “I always push the envelope because I’m Nicki Minaj. I have to.”
“No matter who I’m on a song with, I feel like I have to say at least one thing that no one else is willing to say.”
“Whether it’s Madonna or Britney or Beyoncé, they always tell me, YES. Be yourself. Talk your shit.”
Posing for a Mario Testino shoot, Nicki is seen in one shot wearing a tight red dress with red beret as she poses with statue.
Nicki will soon be releasing her third studio album named Pinkprint, and said, “You can expect a great intro piece that really walks you through where my mind has been the past two years, and there’s a strong love and relationship section that has been lacking lately on the radio.”
“It’s not the glossy stuff, but the nitty-gritty, the fights, the heart breaking things that people don’t really touch on in rap.”
“And for my core, I have the hard shit. It’s the stuff that makes everyone excited and gives them the stink face in the room, and makes people bop super hard.’

Nicki Minaj chases Safaree with Baseball Bat
Last month Safareee Samuels covered over his Nicki tattoos with new tats, leading us to think things with the famous couple were over.
Now TMZ has come out with some more on this story saying that the two broke-up after a huge fight which ended in Nicki smashing a Mercedes-Benz with a baseball bat.
Allegedly the couple started fighting during the summer with Nicki finally chasing him out of her house with a baseball bat.
The Anaconda singer then took out her anger on the Mercedes that she bought for Safaree, causing extensive damage to the car. From there Nicki moved on to throwing all of Samuels stuff in the garbage.
Police arrived to the rappers house, but no arrests were made as the Mercedes belonged to Nicki, as the police said, “It’s not a crime to wreck your own car.”
No one is talking about what started the fight, but we do know the couple were last seen together in September.
On Monday, Nicki posted a quote to Instagram saying, ‘Those who know me never doubt me. & Those who doubt me never knew me.’
