Is She Really In Hov Lane? Nicki Minaj Talks Her Explicit Lyrics, The Black Community Not Being Supportive & Going Pop

Still riding the wave off the success of her number one album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, Nicki Minaj is featured in The Guardian. The UK publication caught up with the Queens native for an interview. Inside, Minaj talked about how she came up with her stage name, the Black community not being supportive, singing, making Pop records, her explicit lyrics and being a business woman. Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded is in stores and on iTunes now.  Below are some excerpts:

On why she changed her name from Onika Maraj to Nicki Minaj? (Her childhood friends always called her Nicki).

“Somebody changed my name. One of the first production deals I signed, the guy wanted my name to be Minaj and I fought him tooth and nail. But he convinced me. I’ve always hated it.”

On the Black community not being supportive.

“Why in the black community have we got to hate on each other? Gaga didn’t on Madonna… we’re helping each other.”

On singing and people saying she went Pop.

“You hear me singing. And that’s the thing. I really want you to write that. Because it’s the most bullshit thing I’ve ever heard – you liked me only when I was doing rap. I never only did rap. My first single was called “Your Love”, and it was a pop song. I did a song called “Knockout” with Lil Wayne about three years ago. Nobody said anything about that. Why? Because it didn’t become huge like “Starships”. That’s what irritates me. People always want to talk about who I was, but I’ve always been singing, always been experimenting with pop music. So the fact that it got huge one day, should I apologize for that? Should I apologize that “Starships” and Super Bass did well, and children like them, and Middle America can sing along? There’s nothing wrong with that. I’m just broadening my fan base. I think everyone should enjoy music.”

On people asking her to stop using swears words.

“Why do people ask me to lose swear words? Do people ask Eminem to lose swear words? Do they ask Lil Wayne to lose swear words? I did an interview the other day and when I saw it back I’m like, why the hell did she make the interview all about some goddamned kids? It was crazy. Five-year-old children shouldn’t be the subject of a Nicki Minaj interview.”

On being a business woman.

“Absolutely. Everything I do, I do with business in my head. If you’re not savvy, this business will eat you alive. A lot of people see it as a big party. And when that party is up, what are you going to do? I want to show little girls that the possibilities are endless. That’s my goal – to not only do it for myself, but to show them I can do whatever I put my mind to. I don’t give a damn if I was born poor, I can come out of this shit with something to offer my children and grandchildren.”
