Nicki Minaj Lands Cover of Marie Claire’s 2016 November Issue [Photos]

Rapper Nicki Minaj is back at it again. It’s not like she ever left the spotlight completely, but she definitely have moments when she steps away for a breather and comes back with a vengeance.

Not too long ago, she released her Pinkprint freestyle and now she’s back snatching edges for the cover of Marie Claire.

During the photoshoot and interview Nicki Minaj discussed women empowerment, competing with male rappers, looking up to Jay-Z, double standards between women, violence in this country, and even her collaboration with Beyonce.

"Every time Bey and I do something together, I see how women are inspired, and it has nothing to do with how we look. It has to do with how we are owning who we are and telling other women you should be the boss of your own career and the brains behind your life or your decisions or your art. I just love that feeling”, she said.

With Nicki back in the spotlight, we know an album is bound to arrive very soon, so stay on the lookout for that. In the meantime, check out a couple of the flawless pics from her shoot with Marie Claire.

The November issue will be on newsstands October 18th.
