Against all odds, Nicki Minaj has built an entertainment empire through hard work, determination and plenty of attitude, and in the new issue of Glamour magazine she explains how she finds her vision.

The “Super Bass” rapper notes, “I wanted to take my time with [my new album] and show people I was capable of making something people could really relate to. Jay Z has always been a role model because he inspires people [to believe] they can go from selling drugs to being one of the most celebrated businessmen of our time. That’s what I want to do for young girls, to say, ‘It doesn’t matter where you started in your life. You too can become a mogul and anything you want to be.’”

She’s a natural performer who loves a good crowd and on Sunday (February 15) Ariana Grande was in fine form as she sang her heart out at the 2015 NBA All-Star Game at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.

There’s a reason toddlers aren’t usually permitted at New York Fashion Week, and after Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's daughter North threw a fit at the Alexander Wang show over the weekend, it’s unlikely she’ll be invited back.

The cranky 19-month-old baby sat front row with her famous parents at Pier 94, though neither the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star nor the “Black Skinhead” rapper seemed to be able to calm her down.

She loves showing fans all angles of her life, and Nicki Minaj is once again doing a documentary for the MTV Network. Following up her “Nicki Minaj: My Time Now” project from 2010, the “Super Bass” babe will star in “Nicki Minaj: My Time Again” when it hits the airwaves on January 18th.

And in the newly-released trailer, it’s pretty obvious that Nicki’s life has gotten even crazier and more emotional than it was in the first show. The one-minute preview includes footage of Nicki’s backup dancer getting bitten by a snake at the Video Music Awards as well as several wardrobe malfunctions.
