For the new issue of Interview, Nicki Minaj talks about her new era with Jada Pinkett-Smith. Specifically, her journey as a new mom and her marriage to her teenage sweetheart. “Being a mother is the biggest freaking blessing on planet earth. I’m so happy that god allowed me to experience this. I’ve always loved children and I’ve always been great with children, but in the last few years I started thinking, I know it’s going to be a huge shift for me because I’m used to going wherever I want, whenever I want, and I knew having a baby was going to change all that. But I absolutely love it.” Minaj also discusses the state of hip hop right now for women—I wish there was some more singing!—and her dreams of building generational wealth for her family, as well as why she’s ready to turn her back on forcing an overly-sexual rap persona. “I don’t think the new female rappers really understand who I am. A lot of the girls that came before me, they really were those sexual beings, and I was so inspired by them. But I’m not like that, I’m more the goofy girl,” she said. Read the full feature here.
