Nicki Minaj Covers Allure: I Hate Working Out (PHOTOS)

By: / March 13, 2012

Nicki Minaj got all dressed up for the rather, um, revealing cover of Allure magazine, on stands Tuesday, Mar. 20.

In the new issue, the always eccentric R&B superstar talks about everything from dieting to her years of trying out new hairstyles.

“I’m naturally petite, but I definitely struggle with keeping those extra pounds off,” she said on the topic of exercise. “And I hate working out. I can’t stand being on a treadmill. That mentally irks me. When I need to lose a few, I just cut out sugar and starch.”

Regarding her never-ending hairstyles, she said she picked up on it at the age of nine. “I had done something I thought was really, really, really cute, and I showed my neighbor. She was like, ‘Why’d you do that to your hair?’ And I never forget what I said: ‘I’m someone new in this hair.’”
