Nicki Minaj Wants Lauryn Hill, Angelina Jolie for Supergroup
Nicki Minaj may be the standout female of the Young Money crew but if the Queens rapper had her way, she’d like to put together a group with some serious girl power. During a recent fan interview session hosted by Billboard, Minaj remarked that if she had her way, she’d like to be in a group with Lauryn Hill, Angelina Jolie, actress Emma Watson of ‘Harry Potter’ fame, and Snooki from the MTV reality show ‘Jersey Shore.’ Nevermind the fact that half of the group lack musical talent the Harajuku Barbie clearly likes diversity.
“You know in Boyz II Men where there was that one dude that never sang, but just talked? … Hermione would do the talking stuff because she has the accent. Angelina Jolie, Snooki — she would be like one of the backup dancers. We would have to have Lauryn Hill, like have to, and we would have to have Cyndi Lauper ’cause she’s funny, she’s crazy,” she continued. “[Cyndi] reminds me of myself and I love her voice. I would produce her in the studio and be like, ‘Cyndi, give it to me like this, I want that feeling, I want that stuff.” Minaj thought of a possibly adding singer Beyonce to the mix but decided having her become a member wouldn’t be “fair.”
Although the group idea is (hopefully) a playful joke Minaj continues on the fast track with a career that doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. The 25-year-old is currently prepping the release of her long awaited debut album ‘Pink Friday,’ which is due in stores this November.
