Nicki Minaj is hitting the October 2014 cover of L’Uomo Vogue and letting you know that she means business.
For the shoot, which was done by Fancesco Carrozzini, Nicki suits up, rocking a stylish black bob, and lets you know that she is 100% about that boss life.
In the article, Nicki explains that after seeing her mother work long hours and be abused by her husband as a child, she swore that she would never let a man have power over her. “That experience had a profound influence on my way of being a woman – never let a man cross the line or control me, especially in my career.” But while she needs total control over her life, including everything that has to do with her image and music career, she says that Beyonce has had a profound impact on her views of having a child in the near future. “Seeing Beyoncé with her daughter and husband was so tender, and it showed me that it is possible to be an animal on stage and a caring mother at the same time.”
