Nicki Minaj Preps Acting Career, Wants To Work With Will Smith & Tim Burton

The Young Money’s first lady Nicki Minaj explains that she wants to expand her resume to include some acting.

The “Super Bass” rapper is currently compiling her fantasy list of people in Hollywood with whom she’d like to work with.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the Harajuku Barbie explained that with her background in acting, she’d love to appear on the big screen alongside Will Smith and with Tim Burton in the director’s chair.

“I want to work with Will Smith, because he’s a very successful rapper turned actor and therefore a role model,” she said. “And Tim Burton because I love his crazy imagination. He comes up with these characters that are just so fascinating and the costumes and just creates these whole worlds.”

Minaj disclosed that rapping was never her first preference, acting was.

“I went to school to be an actress. I never expected to be a rapper. It just fell in my lap,” she continued. “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.”
