The Complex Nicki Minaj interview and photo shoot include:
*Video of Nicki’s interview: Nicki Minaj chats about what’s really important to her, the first time she appeared in Complex Magazine and other fun tidbits!
*A hot fashion spread with Nicki.
*Nicki is a self-made mogul. In six months she has performed at the Grammys, the Super Bowl halftime show with Madonna, will be launching her second album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, in early 2012, along with a nail polish collection, a Barbie Doll and a MAC cosmetics campaign.
*The over-the-top performer is actually quite shy. “I’m the biggest homebody. I don’t know where that public craziness came from.” “I hate cameras.”
*She is the brains behind the Nicki Minaj franchise. “Your telling me that you don’t want control over a brand your creating. I can’t rock with that theory.” “I wanted to do what a label cannot do.”
