Nicki Minaj: "I Want
to Be a Mom"


Well if Madonna and Kim Kardashian can do it, why not Nicki Minaj? The rapper and former American Idol judge reveals in the new issue of Marie Claire magazine that she wants to have kids.

The 30-year-old says she had an "epiphany" while touring in Australia last year and started to think about children.

"For the first time I allowed myself to be proud of where my music had gotten me, and I felt an overwhelming sense of gratitude," she admits. "You feel the need to pay it forward, which starts with analyzing yourself with a true desire to grow."

"I was praying every day, 'You know what, Lord? I want to be a mom one day, and I want to start becoming the woman who I want to parent my child.' I wanted all of the feelings of entitlement to leave me, because some people have this life for a year or five or 10 – and a lot of them lose it."

Based on the kind of judge that she was on American Idol, we think Nicki would be a good but tough mom to her kids. She'd encourage them, but wouldn't let them get out of line.

But we wouldn't like to be a mom who crossed her on the playground or cut in front of her in the drop-off zone outside the school – cause then she'd be all wild-eyed and scary like she was with Mariah Carey!

Tell us, do you think Nicki would be a good mom?
