With two studio albums under her belt and run as a celebrity judge on American Idol, Nicki Minaj has gotten her feet wet in both the music and television world. Now Minaj will soon be in the film world where she will be playing a legal assistant in the Nick Cassavetes-directed movie, The Other Woman.
In Marie Claire, a magazine in which Minaj will serve as the August cover artist, she expresses her nervousness about her first big role.
“I was like, ‘Why does this guy believe in me?’ He goes, ‘I’ve been watching you on Idol, and you’re great.’ Made me seem more relatable to the everyday person. It’s cracked that shell for my image,” said Minaj. “I’ve become something bigger than Nicki Minaj…I would be lying if I said I was not nervous. I can’t blow this.”
Minaj came back to music where she said her music career could be taken over my an acting career but after see puts out more albums.
“I at least want to do three more albums. If I can do that, I’ll feel complete,” she explained. “One day, when I start getting a couple gray hairs, maybe it will all be only acting. I just never know. I’ve kind of become the poster child for doing the things that no one expects.”
The August issue of Marie Claire, which will feature Nicki Minaj’s full interview, will be available on newsstands on July 16.
