Nicki Minaj Is Setting Her Sights on the Big Screen


Nicki Minaj was in the building for the 85th Annual Oscar Academy Awards. It seems being around famous movie actors motivated her to pursue an acting career.

The YMCMB rapper tells the NY Post that she would love to act.

“It just has to be the right project, the right movie. Nothing stereotypical about a singer,” she said. “I have an agent, and we are looking at a couple of scripts, so we’ll see.”

Minaj also touched on her infamous feud with Mariah Carey, who shares judging duties on this season of American Idol.

“All of that has been talked about,” she said. “We had our differences, but it is all done with now, and we just get in there and do our job.”

She isn’t only focused on her past beef. She spoke on the high points of her time on Idol so far, explaining getting close to contestants has been rewarding. “Seeing their parents makes you realize about how this is their dream and how we have to nurture them as much as we can.”
