Nicky Minaj: It's Great Being Queen

Earlier this year ‘Rolling Stone’ magazine labeled Nicki Minaj the new “Queen of Hip-Hop”, something Nicki thought was amazing, but Lil Kim probably had a heart attack over.

She’s taken the music scene by storm, is touring with Britney Spears this summer and her album is on fire. So how does Nicki feel about her new title?

“It was very, very amazing to me," she said. "I was so excited ’cause they’re really respected, and then when I went on all the TV shows, they kept on saying, ‘She’s been dubbed the New Queen of Hip-Hop by Rolling Stone magazine,’ so I was like, that happened at the perfect time.”

“I’m honored because I obviously have been working hard to get to this place,” she continued. “Whether or not I’m the queen of anything, everybody’s gonna have their own opinion and I don’t do this thinking I’m the queen of this, I’m the queen of that. I just feel like I’m working hard and I just want people to recognize that.”

Interestingly enough, it seems like fame has gotten to Nicki’s head. While at the Chateau nightclub in Las Vegas over the weekend, reporters on the red carpet were asked not to “look Nicki in the eye” when interviewing her. And the best part? She decided she was over doing interviews and didn’t even bother talking to anyone.

Don’t let your title get to your head Nicki, being arrogant and bigheaded will only alienate the fans that adore you.
