Here are some interesting things the, Queens, NY bred, 29 year old Hip Pop artist had to say.
On Appealing To Younger Listeners: “I think as far as the younger demo is concerned, I play dress-up,” Minaj says. “I also can put on a very cartoonish voice. So sometimes children may not know what I’m saying, but they like the sound of it, and they think I sound like some weird character.”
On De-throning Jay-Z: “I never thought about music as just being the end-all, be-all. I always looked at it like a business, something that I could create an empire out of…. I had a little conversation with Jay-Z at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. He said, ‘Congratulations on all your success.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m coming for you. I’m coming for your spot, Mr. Mogul.’”
On Her Ever changing Hair Styles: “I was doing every- and anything to it—putting in wads of gel and brushing it to the next century, and just thinking I was so cute,” she says. “I always thought I had an eye for that stuff.” She also had a philosophy: Hair allowed you to reinvent yourself, which was perhaps particularly critical to a little girl with big dreams and a troubled reality. “I had done something I thought was really, really, really cute, and I showed my neighbor,” she says. “She was like, ‘Why’d you do that to your hair?’ And I never forget what I said: ‘I’m someone new in this hair.’ “
On Exercising: “I’m naturally petite, but I definitely struggle with keeping those extra pounds off. And I hate working out. I can’t stand being on a treadmill. That mentally irks me. When I need to lose a few, I just cut out sugar and starch.”

Beyonce, baby Blue Ivy and grandma momma Tina Knowles was all spotted out and about NYC Monday afternoon taking Blue for a walk. Bey has apparently traded in her six inch pumps for a comfortable pair of loafers I see.
Kim Kardashian has just debuted her new jewelry line called “Belle Noel”. Whey the name? She says, “Belle” means beautiful and “Noel” is her middle name. Well, that’s easy enough.
Although nothing new, the collection is actually really pretty. Go behind the scenes and take a look at Kim’s Belle Noel photo shoot in New York City. She talks about her inspirations for the new Spring collection.
Rumored former lovers Drake and Rihanna get close on the set of their ‘Take Care’ music video.
This will sure get some people talking. Although, I’m not quite sure when they were ever dating, courting or whatever. They do look cute together, in a weird kind of way, though. I guess people are starting to put those Rihanna and Chris Brown rumors to bed.
My opinion? Rihanna should start dating again. Nothing serious but nothing J. Lo status. Take things slow. You’re rich, beautiful with so much more left to do in this business we wish you well.
Kim Kardashian doesn’t just act like a blonde she is one!
Well, not so fast. After tweeting this photo of her new blonde trenches, “Blonde hair don’t care http://instagr.am/p/IFvtZKOS9o/“ she soon followed up with “Just a wig relax. Live a little.”
I guess her nearly 14 million followers hated it too.

Teyana Taylor finally has music! She just released her first mixtape, ‘The Misunderstanding of Teyana Taylor’ taking a page out of Lauryn Hill‘s book. She named her 1999 and most noteworthy album ‘The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill’. The singer is heard singing even rapping a few bars. The 15 track LP ia not bad actually. My faves are “Bad Boy” featuring Honey Cocaine, “Mystery Lover”, “Gatekeeper” and “DUI” featuring Jadakiss and Fabolous isn’t bad either.
Listen to the mixtape HERE!!!

Oprah’s was personally invited to the Atlanta home of Patricia Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law, best friend and manager. After entering the home and getting a small tour, Oprah and Bobbi Kristina meet and speak very casually about her mom’s passing and how she’s been.
When asked just how she’s been coping Bobbi Kristina answers, “I’m doing as good as I possibly can. Just trying to keep going” She adds her family and her belief in the lord has been helping.
On her mother she says she still feels her spirit in the house and notes that it was very difficult to stay in her mom’s home the first night back after she had passed. Since then she says she’s found some comfort in knowing and feeling her spirit around her now, “I can hear her voice in spirit talking to me, ‘Keep talking to me. I got you’ (a phrase Whitney always said). She asked me, ‘Do you need me?’ And I caught myself, out of nowhere, I didn’t even know I said it, I said, ‘I’ll always need you.’ ”
