img-true-colors-nicki-minaj_204210520524.jpg_article_singleimage.jpgNicki Minaj, 29, appeared on Vogue.com this week. The rapper is featured in a profile about her style came to be and how she loves her Giuseppe, Versace, YSL, Fendi and Vuitton accessories. Vogue contributing writer Lynn Yaeger, who has eccentric style herself, wrote the profile.

The photograph in profile is probably the most interesting though. Smurf? Beetlejuice? Blue-face?

The two interesting tidbits from Minaj’s profile in Vogue: Minaj also reveals a far more sober side than her stage act might indicate. “A huge part of me wanted to be a lawyer! I would do a really good job as a prosecutor,” she alleges. That’s not the singer’s only alternative personality—famous for creating stage alter egos with names like Roman Zolanski, she confesses that she sometimes imagines herself clad in a bikini and high heels, cooking dinner for a breadwinning husband. […] Still, Minaj is adamant that her legacy will not be one of a free-spending, know-nothing celebrity. She’s planning “an enormous foundation to nurture girls. The Nicki Minaj girl is a fun, artsy girl who can become a fierce force to be reckoned with on Wall Street! They hang on my every word, so I tell them, go to school, be ambitious. The worst position is to be financially dependent on the man.” And what of that alternate Nicki, serving her lord and master a martini by the pool? The fuchsia waves shake furiously. “I could never be that girl!”

No word on when the image will appear in print but her reps have been quoted saying a cover may be in the works.
