Nicki Minaj is well known for her crazy outfits and wild personality, but recently admitted she needs to be that way so she doesn't disappoint her fans.
The Starship singer said:
''So much is taken out of you that you lose yourself. I feel like I've set the bar too high, so I always have to be 'on'. I can identify with Marilyn Monroe in that people saw a beautiful woman, but inside was a fragile little girl.''
As for her future in the business, Nicki aspires to be like rap mogul Jay-Z.
Talking about her song HOV Lane, Nicki continued:
''That's got so many meanings. It's the HOV Lane, which is the fast lane on the highway and Hov is Jay-Z and it talks about him being a male mogul who's done so much. That's what I want to do. I don't know if the industry is sexist or if it's just that women haven't tried to pursue the goals of being a mogul before. I can only say I'm attempting to become a mogul and doing things I've seen guys in this business do.''
Nicki definitely has star power. It will be interesting to see which direction she chooses to take her career!
