Nicki Minaj Interviewing Herself Is Hilarious

By Max Kessler

Nicki Minaj is on the newest cover of Elle and, like Paper did when she was on our cover, they eschewed doing the usual "behind the scenes" promo video. We did a Nicki-inspired fashion shoot while Elle did this spoof video and honestly, it's brilliant. In the video Minaj interviews herself, playing the role of Nicki (obviously) and the staffer assigned to interview her. Minaj's journalist impression is a must-watch -- she perfectly captures the vapidity of a bad fashion interviewer, the breathless fandom, and the awkwardness of moving onto the next question or being thrown by an answer. Thank you, Nicole.
