Rolling Stone, which is one of the definitive music magazines of all time has crowned Nicki Minaj the new queen of hiphop. I dont know if she is the queen just yet. Nicki has only had one album so those are big shoes to fill. The interview was pretty interesting, she addressed quite a few issues:

On her multiple personalities:
“One minute I’m the innocent kid sister, and the next minute I’m screaming with 18 heads,” she says later. “I definitely think life imitates art, or art imitates life. People used to tell me, ‘What is wrong with you? You’ll just sit there and think and get yourself depressed.’ I’ve always been a thinker.”

On her family issues:
I remember there being a lot of arguing, lots of screaming — there were holes punched into the walls in anger,” she says, “and cops being called to the house all the time. I was disappointed in my father, I just wanted him to be Daddy and be the happy person that I remembered, and I was afraid, very afraid, that something would happen to my mother. I had nightmares about it.” Her parents still live together, and her father isn’t happy about her airing his past — she rapped vividly about it on the early track “Autobiography.” “It’s the price you pay when you abuse drugs and alcohol,” she says. “Maybe one day your daughter will be famous and talk to every magazine about it, so think about that, dads out there who want to be crazy.”

On dating S.Beezy:

“He’s not my boyfriend,” Minaj says. “I can’t believe you came out and asked me that! He’s one of my best friends from home. I’m gonna fire him, though.” She laughs. Maybe she’s kidding.

“You shouldn’t hire your friends,” she continues, pensively. “But it’s good to have someone around who knows you for you.” Does she know herself anymore? She looks down at her nails, painted dark purple for West’s “Monster” video. On her wrist is a watch with a round face — tiny diamonds float inside, snow-globe-style. “It’s all a blur sometimes,” she says.
