Nicki Minaj has quickly become a one-woman wonder, topping charts and inking deals at the speed of light. And fashion and music’s favorite shero has no time-outs in sight. Onika is on her way to conquering the alphabet’s worth of magazine covers, from BlackBook and Complex, to V and W. And honestly, we’re pretty damn stoked. Despite her wacky-tacky style and taste-the-rainbow hair, her face is beautiful (don’t hate) and body “smokin’—figure eight…” Take a peek at her cover for Paper Magazine‘s Spring Fashion Issue, along with these interview excerpts.
On handling her fame :
“Success came and now that so many eyes are on me, I feel I have to deliver. And it’s a business. No joke. I guess I am stressing more than I should be, and I think I am becoming more guarded.”
