Nicky Minaj For Complex Magazine

 

To celebrate their 10th anniversary issue, Complex magazine cast Nicky Minaj to strike for their cover shoot.

The spread is shot by Christian Anwander and is in keeping with Minaj’s crazy fashion style. Stylist Rose Garcia used pieces from Ralph Lauren Purple LabelObesity & Speed and Patricia Field.

Minaj accompanies the striking shoot with a chat about her clothing line and life in front of the camera.

Check out some highlights from the interview and a lovely behind the scenes video below or head to Complex for the full scoop.

Highlights from the interview:

On her clothing line and fragrance:

“I’m working on my fragrance and my apparel line. They took stuff that I’ve worn, focused on what I like, and then they started doing sketches. They’re pretty amazing. I was like “Oh my God, the kids are going to love this.” It’s not gonna get done overnight, but I know that it’s something they’re going to love.”

On what she is like off camera:

I’m the biggest homebody. But I’ve been like this. Nothing about me has changed since I got fame. I never liked to go to clubs. I never liked to go out. I don’t know where that public craziness came from. I was always like a comedian to my friends and family, but in a lot of ways I’m shy. I think people read my shyness as being mean. They misinterpret it. The first and only person who ever called me out for being shy was Wayne.

On living her life in the spotlight:

“I hate cameras. I hate cameras and I hate camera phones. The camera’s my worst enemy and my best friend. It’s the way I convey my emotions to the world without saying a word, so I use it. People always say, ‘You come alive as soon as the camera’s on!'”

    Awful, though some of the interview is interesting. Gaga is extremely orchestrated, Minaj comes out messy.
