Read More » With two perfumes out, an OPI nail polish line and deals with MAC costmetics, Adidas and Pepsi, not to mention an album in the words, it's no wonder Nicki Minaj doesn't have much time to chill out. But if she could just take a day or two off from work and get some free time on her hands, what would she do? ... More like who would she do! In an interview with Billboard, the "Pills N Potions" rapper opens about her life, music, her idols and her rivals in the usual candid way she tends to answer questions. nicki minaj takes a shower So when asked what she would most want to do with any miraculously found downtime, her answer was simple and honest: "Have sex." Unfortunately for Nicki, though, that down time seems pretty unrealistic until the release of her upcoming album The Pinkprint, especially since she refuses to sit by the wayside and let others deal with her career. "People don't know how heavily involved I am in my own career," she explains. "I'm on 15 to 25 conference calls every few days strategizing with my team. I think a lot of artists sit back and have it done for them. Sometimes as women in the industry--if you're sexy or like doing sexy things--some people subconsciously negate your brain. They think you're stupid." Beyoncé--who turned to Minaj for guest spot on the remix of "Flawless"--is one of the women the 31-year-old can credit for helping inspire her to be this way. "There's something about her work ethic that always made me feel like no matter how hard stuff gets, I'm not allowed to complain," says Minaj. "Some women give me the feeling that where there's a will, there's a way." Not to mention, she hasn't let her success slow her down from maintaining a highly-recognized role in the hip-hop industry. "It's corny when rappers feel like they've made it and they don't have to prove themselves anymore," she reveals. "You should always be competing. You should always be trying to show that you're the best. My album is going to be important to hip-hop." Her latest hit "Anaconda" has already proven to do so, making it's way to the No. 2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. However, that success hasn't come without criticism, including an argument that it objectifies women with big butts and puts down skinnier women with small ones. nicki's most controversial moments "Everything we see that's labeled as beautiful is very skinny," she explains. "In the song I kind of say, ‘F--- them skinny girls.' But it's all love. I consider myself a skinny girl." She continues, "I went overboard with the video to show that I'm not going to hide. And those big-booty dancers I have, they're not going to hide. Black girls should feel sexy, powerful and important too." Launch the gallery above to see more of Nicki's sexiest moments.
