Nicki Minaj on the Cover of Allure Magazine (Photos), Discusses Colorful Hair and Dethroning Jay-Z

Nicki Minaj Covers 'Allure' April 2012

So last month I posted that Nicki Minaj is covering the April cover issue of Allure magazine. In the issue Nicki shows off major boobage and discusses the inspiration for her colorful hair, makeup, career choices and even "dethroning 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. So that’s why I’m only about to put out my second album and I’m already thinking about this," Minaj tells Allure. "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.'" 

Look out for this barbie on newsstands March 20th. Read more HERE and check out more pictures from Nicki's Allure photo shoot.
