Nicki Minaj goes all colorful and vibrant for the spring 2012 fashion issue of Paper magazine.

The glamorous editorial, which will be available from February 20, features the interview of Nicki Minaj offered to Simon Doonan, who is the creative ambassador of Barneys New York.


During her interview, the 29-year-old rapper was eager to tell her fans more about her thoughts on world-wide success: “Ugh! I have been working sooo much. Success came and now that so many eyes are on me, I feel I have to deliver. And it’s a business. No joke. I guess I am stressing more than I should be, and I think I am becoming more guarded.”
Nicki also reveals her favorite pop icons, whom she admires for their unique clothing style: “Grace Jones definitely. So amazing. And Cyndi Lauper, I loved her right from when I was a little girl. And Janet Jackson of course. And Boy George. I always loved the way he dressed, and his music too. Grace Jones definitely. So amazing.

Simon Doonan also asked Nicki about her favorite trash TV series, about which she answered: “I love Big Ang! And I love the way those girls talk to each other: “Don’t YOU be coming at ME!!!” I love every freakin’ moment. And I watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Beverly Hills. Taylor and Adrienne and the girls.”


On the style of her new album, Nicki said: “The album is like a collage of all my emotions. I am not sticking to any particular style. I am doing what I feel without restrictions. So it’s very free and very me.”
Just wait a little until April, 2012, and you’ll see her unconventional album on your own.
