Madonna+ This month's latest Elle cover model, Nicki Minaj did her best impression of a vapid fashion journalist humorously asking all the wrong questions to herself.

Although the reality TV star - who is due to give birth to her first daughter with Kayne in July - is apparently keen to recreate Demi Moore's iconic Vanity Fair cover shot, her partner wants some things to be kept private.

"It's something Kim has wanted to do for years. She thinks it would be really classy - something she could keep as a souvenir forever. But Kanye believes some things should be kept private. And he has made it clear to Kim in no uncertain terms that he doesn't want her posing nude and showing off her baby bump to the world," a source said.

The 35-year-old rapper is said to want his 32-year-old partner to be "less publicity hungry" and step out of the limelight as he looks to build his dream family. "She knows it may be her last chance of being on the cover of some of those magazines, which normally turn their nose up at her. But Kanye wants her to become more respectful and less publicity-hungry. He has dreams of the kids going to the finest schools and universities. He's come up from humble beginnings and he sees this as opportunity to build a dynasty," the insider added.

Bjork Picky About Who Covers Her Songs

BjorkBjork will only let certain people cover her songs.

The "Mutual Core" singer chooses artists she thinks will do a fresh take on her tracks to record their own versions.

"I'm in a protected situation. I've already done my version the way I want it to be. I ask people I already like, it's not like I'm asking just anybody. I sometimes compare it to jazz standards. You hear two different versions of 'My Funny Valentine' by Billie Holiday and Miles Davis and neither of them are correct. I like the remix platform. There are invisible rules but a lot of freedom."
