Nicki Minaj Covers Complex (Oct/Nov 2010)

On the other side of Cudi,’s Complex over story is Nicki Minaj. In the feature, she discusses her debut LP Pink Friday and toning down her sexual content. More photographs after the jump.

You’ve said in recent interviews that you want to tone down the sexual content in your music. What prompted that?
Nicki Minaj: On “My Chick Bad,” I had to show people that I can spit a verse without sex or talking about how good I look. I’m actually timid when it comes to being overtly sexy, which is weird because in the beginning people thought of me like some freakin’ porn star. Guys reference sex all the time in their raps—I can’t even think of a record where Wayne doesn’t talk about sex—but when a female does it, people start tuning out. Then this gay dude the other day told me, “I say to dudes, ‘Maybe it’s time to put this pussy on your sideburns.'” I was crying laughing and I was like, “I can’t take this shit out of my act.” People live for that shit. [Laughs.] I just have to balance it a little bit.

    i mean… your last name is “Minaj” shawty. what’s the first thing that comes to the mind of the average joe schmoe/plain jane?

    et trois. menage et trois.

    so if they thought you were a porn star, it’s because you chose that shit as your moniker + your first photos had your phat kat on display, licking a big ass lollipop with your tongue stretched out.

    lets do the math, yo. 1+1 shit.

    @ nathaniel – so true! i think that she had to get on using sex… and is now trying to find herself as an artist.

    although some of those photos look desperately enhanced, i’m starting to like this chick.

    the realer she gets, the more i begin to like her.
