Interestingly, it’s the first time a female rapper has been on the cover of the magazine. Great for her. I’m sure it helps to have a non threatening look/sound. Minaj has changed so much from a beautiful brown/underground lyricist, to a commercial looking pop star. Sigh. But I will give her credit, reading excerpts from the article and other interviews, Minaj is a smart woman. Hopefully, she can parlay her success into something that allows her to represent her talents/womanhood on a deeper level.
