Nicki Minaj is featured in the Fall 2010 issue of Out magazine.
The upcoming rapper did a photo shoot that’s very much Grace Jones/Jean Paul Goude-esque. Check it out:
Nicki talks about being gay or bisexual in hip-hop:
“There are a lot of people in the industry fakin’ it to make it. When you’re not keeping it real, you can be any damn thing people want you to be.” But Cazwell thinks Minaj could go to number 1 even if she had a sudden public revelation about her sexuality. “If she was butch and dressed like a guy, people would be turned off, but people like a pretty girl no matter who she sleeps with,” he says. “It may even turn them on more!”
And also about being a “gay heroine”:
“If a gay guy impersonates you, you are a bad bitch. Period,” she says, waving her bright-orange nails in the air. “There are no ifs, ands, or buts, because they only impersonate the best.”
