The salient points

  • 'Mino' was discovered by Lil Wayne, shortly after police discovered a pistol on him. Are these two incidents related? Probably not.
  • As well as her own singles, Nicki managed to chart in the US with sixteen different guest spots in 2010.
  • Nicki is a big fan of the colour pink and this just about offsets some of her angry lyrics about shitting on people.
  • Drake has a massive crush on her, saying: "I've always really, actually, really had a crush on her, always really loved her, and she's always just looked at me as, like, her little brother." Which is a bit sad for him really.
  • Nicki has so far admitted to alter-egos including a British mother, a Mother Theresa healer type and a motorbike-riding "gay boy" called Roman Zolanski.
  • The RedOne collaboration 'Starships' was basically 'Bad Romance V4'.
  • Her song 'Marilyn Monroe' is a massive tune.
  • In 2013 she joined the American Idol panel and spent most of the early shows rolling her eyes at Mariah Carey.
