Nicki Minaj Covers Billboard Magazine
Nicki Minaj ends the year by being on the cover of Billboard Magazine’s December issue for 2015. In the magazine (which she covered topless) the 33-year-old rapper talks about her music, her views about Hilary Clinton as well as her relationship with Meek Mill.
For Minaj, 33, it’s a job that entails more than the routine duties of 21st century multimedia fame — spreading your stardust across dozens of platforms, from recording studio to concert stage to red carpet to Instagram feed. Minaj’s brand of megastardom means inhabiting the eye of a storm that sweeps up contentious issues of race and gender and sexuality, while tending to more quotidian controversies like rap beefs and diva rivalries.
