***CAKE & BEAUTY*** #CelebNews NICKI MINAJ COVERS COMPLEX MAG, TALKS EMPOWERING CURVY WOMEN AND WHY SHE LOVES DRAKE!
Showing off her beauty and cakes for the cover of the Complex December issue, Nicki also sat down for an in-depth chat with the magazine where she opened up about everything from feeling guilty over her relationship with her family, loving Drake to death, wanting to have babies, her album and more. Via Complex Magazine: On feeling guilty over sacrificing family time in light of her success: When you’re working and you’re busy and you’re successful, no matter what, something suffers, whether it’s your relationship with your mother, your relationship with your whole family, not being able to go to your brother’s graduation…. Certain things suffer and take the back burner, not because they’re on the back burner in your heart but because the world just moves so quickly. A lot of people, when they’re chasing their dreams, they have to leave people they love. A lot of artists feel that guilt but they don’t express it. I live in L.A., so when I wake up in the morning, I can’t just run across the street and hug my mother, hug my little brother, kiss my little brother or older brother. I have to get on a six-hour flight to see them, and then, even when I go to New York, I’m lucky if I can see them for a couple hours. I go to New York all the time and I’m so ashamed to say that I could be out there for a few days and not even be able to see my family because of my schedule. On similarities she sees between herself right now and “Blueprint” -era Jay Z: I can’t. I have no idea what he was doing before The Blueprint dropped. It’s not that literal. People keep asking me about Jay’s The Blueprint and they think I’m doing something like that. I made reference to The Blueprint because Jay is the biggest rapper of our time. The name of the album was inspired by Jay but not the body of work. I do think that it’s going to create new rules, though, in [the way] that [The Blueprint did]. On Drake’s demeanor in the “Anaconda” video & why she “loves him to death:” It’s so cute. He’s such a dope actor. After he did that we just busted out laughing and we all were cracking up. He’s such a good sport. I love that he makes fun of himself and doesn’t take himself too seriously. That’s why my friendship with him works so well. That’s why I love him to death.
