Nicki Minaj: “Madonna never stopped pushing the envelope and taking risks”

In a recent radio interview with Hot 97, Nicki Minaj said that Madonna‘s fearlessness inspired her. It’s thanks to Madonna that Nicki doesn’t “wanna lose that sense of who I am,” just like “in the beginning of my career.”

Two years after Nicki Minaj and M.I.A. collaborated with Madonna on her MDNA album.

I feel like one of the people who I looked up to the most was Madonna and she’s never stopped pushing the envelope. She’s never stopped taking risks and I don’t want to ever stop doing that either.
