Nicki Minaj Talks Inspiration for ‘The Pink Print’ Album, New Look & Love for Jay Z [VIDEO]
Nicki Minaj is on a promotional blitz right now. In just one day, she spoke to New York radio stations Power 105.1 ('The Breakfast Club') and Hot 97 ('The Morning Show') via phone. Plus, she did a phone interview with Ryan Seacreast and visited Power 106's 'Big Boy's Neighborhood' in Los Angeles as well.
Queen Barb touched on a variety of topics during her talks, from why she's been posting those sexy Instagram photos lately to her new album 'The Pink Print.' She also talked about her new stripped-down look, which has much to do with the direction of her new album.
"The album also is more personal, so I think the look being stripped-down goes really well with the third album," Nicki tells 'The Breakfast Club.' "And I always planned on doing it at this time. It didn't just come about now. I just always thought in my head that my third album I would want to go back to my real hair."
She also explains that the forthcoming LP has very few features on it, but she did tell the 'The Morning Show' that she's eager to work with Remy Ma once she gets out of jail. "That would make me very happy," the 'Pills N Potions' rapper states. "That would be very exciting. As soon as she get out, man, holla at me."
As for the title 'The Pink Print,' it's inspired by Jay Z. "I think everybody knows how obsessed I am with Jay Z," Nicki says in the Big Boy interview. "He's always been my favorite rapper, him and Wayne, and he did a great job of creating this 'Blueprint' brand for male rappers."
The YMCB member also breaks down the concept behind 'Pills N Potions' during her conversation with Ryan Seacrest. "I feel like it's kind of like a tragic love story," she explains. "And it doesn't even necessarily have to be like a boy and girl relationship. I just kind of feel like while I was working on the album, I started realizing how much has changed, and how people has changed, and how people come in and out of your life. I just felt like talking about that."
