Nicki Minaj covers V Magazine

Nicki Minaj V Magazine 2014
Nicki Minaj is taking over V Magazine’s December issue. Dressed in an array of fantastic designers Nicki reps girl power in Jimmy Choo pumps, Balmain and leopard-print booties and bold accessories. She talks about the controversial issues concerning her 'Anaconda' music video, her love for Versace, and great advice she received in the past..
Girl power:
I always feel it’s important for me to show females that they can be in charge of their own situation. I came into the game creating my own brand. I was doing things very early on that set me apart from people who just took orders and allowed their brand to be created for them. I love women who take control, who set standards, and who believe in themselves enough to lead the way in terms of their career. I’ve done that. When I win and when I lose.
'Anaconda' video backlash:
If a man did the same video with sexy women in it, no one would care. You’re talking about news people who don’t even know anything about hip-hop culture. It’s so disrespectful for them to even comment on something they have no idea about. They don’t say anything when they’re watching the Victoria’s Secret show and seeing boobs and thongs all day. Why? Shame on them. Shame on them for commenting on “Anaconda” and not commenting on the rest of the oversexualized business we’re a part of.
Versace:
What I love about Versace is that it’s so rich. Rap is a lot of showing off, and fashion is too. Versace is like, ‘look at me, b-tch. I’m here.’
Advice:
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 one one thing that one else is willing to say. Whether it’s Madonna, Britney, or Beyonce, They always tell me, ‘Yes, Be yourself. Talk your sh-t.’
