Nicki Minaj Says Things Happen Really Quickly, Talks ChangeSat, Aug 07, 2010
"Things happen really quickly, and you should take a moment and absorb it," she says in a Live Q&A with Billboard.com on Friday (Aug 6). "To be honest, the last year of my life, I can't tell you where it began and ended, or what happened in between. I can't remember dates, I just keep going. I didn't realize things would move so quickly."
Minaj, who says she made a million off her mixtapes, says things are different now due to her new lifestyle and influences, but says she hasn’t changed much as a rapper.
"Life is about growth and I don't want to remain the same my whole life -- I want to be able to change,” Minaj says in the Live Q&A. “I respect people that love '07 Nicki, and I'm definitely going to give you some stuff on 'Pink Friday,' I won't forget anybody. But I have to be true to me -- I started seeing different things, going to different places, eating different things. It would be fraudulent to rap the same way and look the same way, because I'm not the same. Period."
