Queen of rap music, Nicki Minaj lands her first Vogue cover with the magazine’s sister branch, Vogue Arabia.
The 35-year old slays on the second September issue dolled up in an array of elegant dark ensembles for the stunning black and white photo.
In the September issue, the rap star revealed that she’s had her fair share of criticisms that she’s endured over the course of her career. “I think anybody who says they don’t care about horrible things being said about them or lies being spread about them are not being truthful. I’m a human being and of course it bothers me when I read lies or horrendous things about myself. I took time to create something for my fans that I knew was going to be perfection,” Minaj disclosed.
Just as everyone starts life with a dream and practise how the future is going to be, the Grammy winner also shares her story from her waitressing days.
“In the restaurant where I was a waitress, I would go to someone’s table to take the orders and before I got their bread,” she recalls. “I’d write raps on my order notepad about what they said or what they were wearing… I always thought, ‘I’m going to get the hell out of this joint, stop waitressing, and become a big superstar,” she added.
