Nicki Minaj graces the cover of Allure magazine’s April 2012 issue wearing a pink wig. Inside, she discusses being fascinated with her hair when she was nine and exercising.
On being fascinated with her hair when she was nine: “I was doing every- and anything to it—putting in wads of gel and brushing it to the next century, and just thinking I was so cute,” she says. “I always thought I had an eye for that stuff.”
On exercising: “I’m naturally petite, but I definitely struggle with keeping those extra pounds off. And I hate working out. I can’t stand being on a treadmill. That mentally irks me. When I need to lose a few, I just cut out sugar and starch.”
