Nicki Minaj seems to be on top of the world with a new album, MTV special and now this interview in Rolling Stone! If you didn't have the chance to see the magazine, check out what Nicki said here.

On being less hood and having drama training:

"At one time, you had to sell a few kilos to be considered a credible rapper. But now it's like Drake and I are embracing the fact that we went to school, we love acting, we love theater, and that's OK and it's especially good for the black community to know that's OK, that's embraced."

On her personality:

"One minute I'm the innocent kid sister, and the next minute I'm screaming with 18 heads. I definitely think life imitates art, or art imitates life. People used to tell me, 'What is wrong with you? You'll just sit there and think and get yourself depressed.' I've always been a thinker. There's this fear of not being perfect. There's some songs I just won't write because I'm afraid of it not meeting my expectation of what I know that song could be. I don't compete with other people, I compete with myself."
