Minaj appears on the cover of the Winter 2014/2015 issue of V magazine. She talks about taking risks, her album The Pinkprint, and on influencing women.
I love women who take control, who set standards, and who believe in themselves enough to lead the way in terms of their career. I’ve done that. When I win and when I lose, I take ownership of it, because I really am in charge of what I do. There are a lot of strong male rappers, who’ve influenced me a great deal in terms of my skill, my flow, and my business-savvy side. But at the end of the day, I still want to inspire women.
