Hold on, slow down; Nicki Minaj wants to do what?! She’s one of the most famous faces in the rap industry at the moment – as well as one of the most recognizable voices – and she’s opening up about what she wants in the future, and it’s kind of a surprise to her fans. Her third album will be here next month, and the superstar has decided to tell us what she sees happening in the future, and her answers might actually cause your mouth to drop wide open.
“I won’t use the word ‘retire’ but I would use the word ‘vacation’ – because I don’t believe in vacations, I don’t believe in holidays. I have to put out all six of my albums, contractually. After the fifth, I’ll probably have my baby,” says the superstar singer about what she hopes for her future. While no one knows how the future will play out, she’s got a mindset to have hers play out just the way she wants.
“I wonder if I’m going to be one of those women who balances my child with a career. I always said, ‘When I have my baby, it’s going to be all about my baby,’ I don’t want the child feeling like they don’t have all of my attention, so I always said, ‘I’m going to take a little break.’ But we’ll see,” she continues. At the moment, she’s very open about the fact that her business and her life take up so much of her time that she doesn’t always have time for her family, and that’s not what she wants for her children. She continues her interview by stating that she’s not really all that interested in marriage at the moment, and that it’s something she will “definitely do before I have my baby.”
“I’d rather not doing anything that’s going to be on paper but I definitely will be married before I have my baby. I want to make sure I do it in that order. I’ve always felt like that since I was young; my mother always put that in my head. By the fifth album, I will have walked down the aisle and I will at least be on baby number one, possibly baby number two. And have $500 million.”
Good for you for having goals, Nicki Minaj.
