Nicki Minaj Wants to be the Next Meryl Streep
After conquering the world of music, rapper Nicki Minaj has turned her sights on Hollywood.
After getting a taste of what it was like on the big screen in the 2014 film, The Other Woman, Minaj is working on her next film, Barbershop: The Next Cut, which premieres in 2016.
When it comes to acting idols, Minaj is aiming high, confessing that the career trajectory she’s hoping to recreate is that of award-winning actress, Meryl Streep.
Of Streep, Minaj says to Billboard, “I love how she can go from The Devil Wears Prada to The Iron Lady—she’s so incredible in that. My dream would be to have that type of acting career, where I can do both things believably.”
Considering her versatility when it comes to on-stage personas, it will be fun watching Nicki transform on the big and small screens.
