Nicki Minaj dons a blonde wig and a red tartan dress for the cover of Marie Claire‘s August issue, shot by Satoshi Saïkusa. Inside the glossy, Minaj answers questions from her fans and talks feuds, American Idol, drama in general, and how we’ll eventually be seeing her acting chops on display. “I at least want to do three more albums. If I can do that, I’ll feel complete…One day, when I start getting a couple gray hairs, maybe it will all be only acting,” she explains. “I just never know…I’ve kind of become the poster child for doing the things that no one expects.” She also reveals that if this rap thing hadn’t worked out so well, Minaj wanted to be a lawyer: “I just loved the thought of going into a courtroom with mostly men and defending someone – just being able to persuade people with your words. It seems glamorous in a way. Very inspiring and ballsy.” The outfits wouldn’t be nearly as exciting in the courtroom, though, Nicki. The new issue of Marie Claire can be in your paws on July 16th.
