Each Thursday the The Guest List brings you the best interviews with the hottest celebrities. This week the team sat down with budding music superstar Nicki Minaj.
I’m not sure what I like most about the Queens-raised rapper [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm]. Her three alter-egos, (“There’s Barbie who’s careful about what she says, Nicki who’s old-school hip-hop and Roman Zolanski who’s outlandish and raunchy”), the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Gwen Stefani[/lastfm]-eque, Harajuku look, or her massively inventive style made up of electro/hip-hop-tastic synths combined with a neo-hardcore femme-fatale sizzle. I’ll go with all of the above.
The rapper who calls herself “Harajuku Barbie” knows how to entertain. If it’s not her fiery lyrical flow or her colorful wig obsession, it’s her seemingly random British accent. Though, in this interview we didn’t quite get her to bust out the accent, but she did make us scratch our heads when she talked about her monkey children. Say what!? Yea, we thought that, too!
If you’ve been bored with party-rap music of late, this is certainly a gal to check out. Our friends at Movin 99.7 caught up with the Young Money emcee and talked multiple personalities, her new wacky character Roman Zolanski who exchanges verses with Eminem on “Roman’s Revenge”, and the upcoming album Pink Friday.
