Nicki Minaj Covers PAPER Magazine’s Spring Fashion Issue
As promised, Nicki Minaj is gracing the cover of PAPER Magazine’s Spring Fashion issue. We have a few highlights from her phone interview with Barney New York’s Creative Ambassador-at-Large, Simon Doonan, and more pics from her shoot with Howard Huang. Take a look.
On how she’s handling fame:
“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.”
On her biggest style icons:
“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.”
On what we can expect on her new album:
“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.”
