We’re getting closer to the debut of Nicki Minaj’s new fragrance Minajesty – Exotic Edition on Friday, July 11th! In this video, the hip hop s£nsat!on and style icon speaks about her fans and why they mean so much to her.
“I wouldn’t be here without my fans. They mean everything to me. They’re supportive, they’re loving, they’re kind, they’re perfect, they’re unique. They’re everything that I wanna be when I grow up.” – Nicki Minaj
Nicki’s fans, or “Barbz” as she endearingly refers to them, had the chance to ask her questions about her life, fragrance, and inspirations, and the answers are finally here! If you’re a lucky fan, she may have answered one of your questions in our special Q&A below!
WHAT DIRECTION WOULD YOU LIKE FOR YOUR CAREER TO TAKE IN THE NEXT 5-10 YEARS?
A few more albums, a few movies, an official scholarship program, more business ventures like my Moscato (Myx Fusions) that I recently introduced to the market place. Of course, more fragrances and beauty products.

ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE RELEASE OF YOUR NEW ALBUM?
I couldn’t be more excited about the upcoming release of The Pink Print. Just knowing that my fans will have it in their hands this year makes me so happy. Every night in the studio I play the songs and I think what their favorites will be and how many new memories we will make with these songs on tour.
WHAT WAS YOUR THOUGHT PROCESS FOR PICKING THE NEXT SCENT OF YOUR NEW FRAGRANCE?
I just go through fragrances and see which ones make me come alive. I need more than just a pretty smell, I need some sort of aromatherapy, I guess. I want the smell to translate to your attitude and make you feel good inside.

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO GO INTO THE MUSIC INDUSTRY?
I wanted to take care of my family, and music was always the thing I drowned my fears in. I figured I could support my family and do what I loved at the same time.
IS PINK STILL YOUR FAVORITE COLOR?
Forever and ever ‘til I leave this planet.

DO YOU MISS THE EXTRAVAGANT CLOTHES AND WIGS?
I’m really loving where I am right now but I don’t want people to think I’ll never go back to costumes because that’s still a big part of how I see myself. For now though, I love the more natural look.
WHEN IS YOUR NEXT TOUR PLANNED?
Top of 2015….see you guys soon!
