Gangstarr Girl x Nicki Minaj

One of my favorite ladies in the journalism biz, Starrene Gangstarr Girl Rhett, interviewed Nicki Minaj over at XXL‘s web site. Knowing that other writers have limited their articles to game sessions with the first lady of Lil Wayne’s Young Money crew, Starr asked great, pointed questions and got her to actually talk about something other than why females hate on her or why she’s aka “Sit On Your Favorite Rapper’s Face.” Her sex appeal is definitely something she used to her advantage to get an initial buzz, but I hope she sticks to what she said and makes it a point to tone it down – not because I’m hating, but because she’s actually got skills, and her music deserves a fair chance. I initially wrote Nicki’s bio for The Famous Firm, and even though she’s since left the squad and gotten a new bio written to coincide with her new “Wonder Woman” promo run, I wish her the best.

Excerpt:

XXL: I’ve seen interviews with you on the net, but it’s not really an interview, it’s just men flirting with you. How does that make you feel?

NM: You wanna know something? I can’t blame any person that interviews me and not that I have any regrets, but I realize the control that I have. I have the power in my interviews to steer it how ever I want it to and if I choose to allow them to flirt with me, that’s what they’re gonna do, so really for 2009 it’s gonna be a little less flirting and more getting to the point.

Yessir. For the rest of the interview, click here.
