Though she only appeared as a judge on American Idol for one season from 2012 to 2013, the hip-hop superstar made quite an impression. “The perception that people had of me completely changed because there are no cue cards, there’s no script, it wasn’t me performing a song. It was, ‘Let’s see your real personality,'” Minaj explains. “My core is a genuine human being who roots for other people. I didn’t want to blow smoke up their ass. I wanted every contestant to leave with something that they could remember.” PHOTOS: American Idol judges, then and now Minaj says she wants to do “three more albums” before she moves on to the next phase of her career: acting. “If I can do that, I’ll feel complete,” she says. “One day, when I start getting a couple gray hairs, maybe it will all be only acting. I just never know. . . I’ve kind of become the poster child for doing the things that no one expects.” PHOTOS: Nicki Minaj’s craziest hairstyles ever In fact, long before she became famous, the “High School” rapper dreams of becoming a lawyer.

Well, the rapping Barbie shows no signs of slowing down. On Tuesday (September 3), Minaj appeared as a guest in two new music videos: one from DJ Khaled and another from Wale . Khaled’s “I Wanna Be With You” is the first collaboration between the two since the charismatic DJ brought a 10-karat diamond ring up to MTV News and cooked up a marriage proposal for his YMCMB labelmate. There were no vows exchanged in the video, but Nicki managed to stand out in the Colin Tilley-directed clip, which also features Rick Ross and Future. In the clip, which premiered on MTV Jams Tuesday, a blond-haired Nicki sits against a purple backdrop, wearing a white dress and rapping her rapid-fire rhymes. “Baddest bitch, I’m the catalyst/ Ain’t never been done, bitch I added this,” she rhymes. Throughout the clip Nicki keeps a serious tone about her, once again proving that she can hold her own when matched up against the boys. Wale’s “Clappers” takes on a drastically different tone, with Nicki sporting a drastically different look. The latest single from Wale’s The Gifted is an ode to big butts that is set to a go-go-inspired instrumental. After the MMG standout and guest spitter Juicy J get their go, Nicki brings up the rear in the rump-shaking party, wearing a yellow tank top and pink tights. “Got ass for days, come activate/ This ass on fire, evacuate,” she rhymes while she twerks for the camera.

Peacock blue and green strands, fuzzy pink bee hive up-dos, platinum blonde curls, a new day, a new photo shoot, means a new hair color for Nicki Minaj. The singer is never without a voluptuous wig. She was recently snapped rolling around in the sand in a hot pink bikini and bright green wig on the set of her music video “Starships.” So what is Minaj’s real hair color? “I mean obviously it’s black,” she said. “It’s not that I don’t want to show my real hair. It’s that the maintenance of real hair is too much … to have to curl my hair or flat iron my hair. It’s so annoying.” WireImage/Getty Images Minaj Is Really a ‘Shy’ Homebody As a female rapper who believes using the “f-bomb” has a lot of “power,” Nicki Minaj admitted there was a downside to being caught up in the fame bubble. “I’m already a shy person,” she told ABC’s Juju Chang. “I don’t really like crowds, really.” The worst part about becoming so famous, Minaj said, is that the attention has made her more of a “recluse.” “Sometimes I want to just pull the off switch, but you can’t because if you go outside, you have to give people your all. You can’t say, ‘Oh, you know what? I’m not feeling good today.’ No. No one’s trying to hear that.
