On social media:
"With social media, there's a difference in the fan-artist relationship. When someone can hear you speaking through your thoughts and words, they get to make a very quick judgment—quicker than they'd have been able to make in the '80s or '90s. They get to feel: Are you real? Is this you? I tell my Barbz, 'You guys know the difference between rap, play, and dead-ass serious.' They know the difference between those three Nickis. And they're so smart. They teach me every day. They're the meat and potatoes of who Nicki Minaj is."
On her dreams of becoming a actress:
"By the time I'm 19, I'm going to be Halle Berry status. I really believed it and when it didn't happen, I started getting more and more crushed."
