Onika Tanya Maraj ,known by her stage name Nicki Minaj (pron: /miˈnɑːʒ/), is a American rapper, singer-songwriter, voice actress and television personality. She was born in Saint James, Trinidad and Tobago. When she was five years old, she moved to the New York City borough of Queens. Minaj trained as an actress before she released three mixtapes between 2007 and 2009 and signed to Young Money Entertainment. Young Money is an American record label. Minaj’s debut studio album, Pink Friday (2010), peaked at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 and was certified Platinum.
Minaj’s artistry features fast-paced rapping, alter egos and accents, notably British cockney. Her outlandish and colorful costumes, wigs and clothing have given her recognition as a fashion icon. She featured as a voice actress in Ice Age 4: Continental Drift, is currently serving as a judge on American Idol and has endorsed Adidas, MAC Cosmetics, and Pepsi. Minaj’s work has earned her six BET Awards, four American Music Awards, two MTV Music Awards, an EMA and Billboard’s 2011 Rising Star.
While growing up, Minaj’s home life was often chaotic, with her parents constantly fighting. As a means of escape, she would create characters and live her life through them, saying, “To get away from all their fighting, I would imagine being a new person. ‘Cookie’ was my first identity – that stayed with me for a while. I went on to ‘Harajuku Barbie,’ then ‘Nicki Minaj’. Fantasy was my reality. Minaj also introduced “Point Dexter” on her skit on SNL as an alter-ego, but she has since mentioned Point Dexter as one of her alter-egos.
Recetly in “tu cara me suena” It was imitated for Roko. Roko did very very bad. I’m outraged.
My favourite songs by Nicki is Starships and Super Bass
