Nicki Minaj is helping Complex magazine celebrate a decade in the publishing business by appearing on their 10th anniversary cover. While Monday (March 19) showcased cover guy Justin Beiber looking bloodied and bruised, the alternate cover displays the Young Money rapper with both her animated antics and her serious side.

The cover, which is revealed below, isn’t far removed from what fans and critics have come to expect from the wig-wearing MC. She dons a platinum blonde wig, much like the one she wore to the Super Bowl earlier this year. Her wardrobe, which was put together by stylist Rose Garcia, is a mix of form-fitting pieces accented by neon pops of color. Then there’s her facial expressions and poses, which never disappoint.

During the interview, the 29-year-old ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ creator discusses her goal to sell 5 million copies of her new LP and tour every country in the world as a result. She admits she’s a pessimist and also reveals that she had a “f—ing breakdown” backstage at the 2011 American Music Awards.


Looking ahead in 10 more years, the ‘Stupid H–‘ entertainer admitted she’d be married with two children by 2022. “OK, I might have three, but I do want at least one boy,” Minaj states. “I don’t think I even need a girl… I really need a boy in my life. A baby boy. Because…I’m so attached to my little brother and I felt like that was my real son. And boys, they’re just so, I don’t know… My heart just melts when I see them.”

Nicki Minaj’s ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ debuts April 3.
