Nicki Minaj was interviewed for the New York Times Magazine in the middle of fashion week. It was also during a time when she was recording tracks for her upcoming album. For the article’s accompanying photoshoot Minaj displayed a demure look with slick back natural hair and not an ounce of cleavage in site. The look, inspired by the 1990s, is a far cry from the Nicki we’ve seen of late.
The Trinidadian beauty also gave fans a hint at what to expect from her upcoming album saying, “sonically, I know what the album’s about to sound like. I know what this album is gonna mean to my fans. This album is everything in my life coming full circle and me being truly, genuinely happy. It feels almost like a celebration. The last album, ‘The Pink Print,’ was almost like my diary, closing the chapter on certain things and not knowing if I was happy or sad about beginning new chapters. I was really writing about feeling unsure. Now, I can tell you guys what happened for the last two years of my life. I know who I am. I am getting Nicki Minaj figured out with this album and I’m loving her.”
