Nicki Minaj Wants Acting Role Alongside Her Role Model
Nicki Minaj has again spoken of her desire to swap the recording studio for a leading role in a Hollywood blockbuster. She has also revealed that Will Smith is the actor who she would most like to feature alongside on the silver screen...
Minaj spoke to Entertainment Weekly after the MTV Movie Awards and revealed that she never planned to be a rapper and that acting, rather than music, was her first love: “I went to school to be an actress. I never expected to be a rapper. It just fell in my lap. So I would like to get an acting gig. I hope that when I am done with the tour I can go back and do some acting. That is my long-term goal.”
Minaj wouldn’t be the first rapper to make the move from stage to movies and when asked what actor she would most like to work alongside, she chose somebody who has already made a
success of both careers: “Will Smith, because he’s a very successful rapper
turned actor and therefore a role model.”
