Nicki Minaj was recently on the cover of Marie Claire, where she revealed many details about her personal life.
She discussed American Idol, saying "the perception that people had of me completely changed because there are no cue cards, there's no script, it wasn't me performing a song. It was, 'Let's see your real personality.' My core is a genuine human being who roots for other people. I didn't want to blow smoke up their ass. I wanted every contestant to leave with something that they could remember."
She also revealed that she wants to try acting soon.
"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. I just never know…I've kind of become the poster child for doing the things that no one expects," she said.
If she weren't a singer, she said she 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 epode with your words. It seems glamorous in a way. Very inspiring and ballsy."
