Nicki Minaj Sizzles In GQ

If we were poodles, we’d totally want Nicki Minaj to walk us too.

GQ sat down with Nicki Minaj, in between cat naps, to chat with the rap star about the same thing everyone asks her over and over again — ya know: “Anaconda,” big booties and Drake.

Forgive us if we don’t sound so excited…the best part of the interview was the photos. Even Nicki, who’s gearing up for the release of her album “The Pinkprint,” feels the same way. “I don’t know what there is to really talk about,” Nicki told GQ’s Taffy Brodesser-Akner of her Anaconda video.

“I’m being serious. I just see the video as being a normal video,” she said. “I think the video is about what girls do. Girls love being with other girls, and when you go back to us being younger, we would have slumber parties and we’d be dancing with our friends.”

She added “She”—Nicki’s character in the video—“is just talking about two guys that she dated in the past and what they’re good at and what they bought her and what they said to her. It’s just cheeky, like a funny story.”

However she does acknowledge that the video is also about power and control. “I’m chopping up the banana. Did you realize that? At first I’m being sexual with the banana, and then it’s like, ‘Ha-ha, no.’ She added, “Yeah, that was important for us to show in the kitchen scene, because it’s always about the female taking back the power, and if you want to be flirty and funny that’s fine, but always keeping the power and the control in everything.”

Brodesser-Akner sat down with Minaj before her Fashion Rocks rehearsal at Barclays Center. For this performance, she incorporated male dancers. “I went in yesterday, finally saw the dance for the first time, and I saw the guys doing all this sexy stuff that I wasn’t a part of. And I said, ‘Hello, why aren’t they humping me on the stage?’ We’ve got to give them something to talk about again.”

And that they did. Read the full interview, here.
