Nicki Minaj Wants to Raid the Queen’s Wardrobe

Nicki MinajNicki Minaj wants to raid the Queen's wardrobe. The 29-year-old "Starships" rapper - who is famed for her wild outfits and multi-colored wigs - says she would love to have a root through the English monarch's clothes rails and borrow a few key pieces.

"The Queen kind of seems like a fairytale character to me. I bet her closet is crazy, I'd love to go through it. I bet the dresses would fit me too - she's like a little, tiny ladybug," she said.

Explaining her obsession with pink-colored clothes, Nicki believes her fixation started in during her troubled childhood, which saw her father try to kill her mother by setting the house on fire: "When I was younger I didn't have much financially, like we couldn't afford a lot of stuff and I remember seeing little girls' rooms on TV and they'd all be pink. I didn't have my own room, I shared with my brother, so I would have this daydream and imagine that one day I could have my own room and it would all be pink, like Cinderella's. So I guess pink takes me back to that time and it just feels euphoric when I wear it. I love it."
