ELLE: You have a few alter egos, so who am I talking to? Nicki the Ninja? Nicki the Boss?
Nicki Minaj: Youre definitely talking to the Boss right now. I dont think I even go by Ninja and Boss anymore, I just go by Nicki Minaj and Barbie.
ELLE: Wait, but who is Roman Zolanski?
NM: Roman is a weird little alter ego who is very flamboyant and doesnt give a damn. You know when Im doing really weird voices, growling, being real crazy, and talking like Anna Nicole Smith? Thats Roman.
ELLE: Whats the craziest request for a verse youve ever gotten?
NM: Ive turned down like a billion of requests for sexually explicit lyrics. People just have to just start understanding that its not the only thing I have to talk about, its not the only thing I want to talk about, its not the only thing Im going to talk about. I just have to take control of my brand because longevity is very important to me, and I wasnt just going to please a couple of people then look back, and think Wow, what did I just do to myself? So I had turn a lot of people down, and there are a lot of people who were offended. I wont name names, but they have to get over it.
