Onika Tanya Maraj bka Nicki Minaj is holding court on the cover of V magazine. Her Minajesty dishes about her new album, The Pink Print  and the criticism she received over the cover for her single, “Anaconda.” She also talks candidly about female empowerment and importance of branding.

“I always feel it’s important for me to show females that they can be in charge of their own situation. I came into the game creating my own brand. I was doing things very early on that set me apart from people who just took orders and allowed their brand to be created for them. I love women who take control, who set standards, and who believe in themselves enough to lead the way in terms of their career. I’ve done that. When I win and when I lose.” [V MAGAZINE]
