Nicki Minaj Does a Pretty Good Impression of a Dumb Fashion Girl

In the below video, Minaj is "Nicole," an Elle staffer, and she interviews... herself. Nicole is a pretty cringeworthy mockery of that breathless, vapid, fashion girl. We have to hand it to Minaj, she's pretty damn funny.

Most glossies release little videos with their cover girls every time an issue comes out. Usually it's the standard behind-the-scenes b-roll (you've seen it: Celebrity gets made up, tries on clothes, poses for the photographer, etc.,). Elle did something a little out of the box with its April cover girl Nicki Minaj.

In the below video, Nicki is "Nicole," an Elle staffer, and she interviews herself. Nicole is a pretty cringeworthy mockery of that breathless, vapid, fashion girl. She pokes fun at the kind of fawning questions celebrities are asked by women's magazines ("Like, where do you come up with your outfits?") though, to be fair, celebrities and their publicists all but forbid reporters from asking questions with any substance.

Anyway, we have to hand it to Minaj, she's pretty damn funny here. Wait for the part when she talks about wanting to be artificially inseminated.
