On Tuesday morning, Nicki Minaj sat down with Good Morning America to promote her role in The Other Woman, which stars Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton. The rapper explained why she was apprehensive preparing for her first blockbuster film.
“I was so nervous,” she revealed on GMA. “I felt a lot of pressure ’cause I am sitting this close to Cameron Diaz and I know if I don’t get my lines right, she has to do her lines over. That pressure was scary.”
Minaj portrays Diaz’s opinionated assistant, Lydia, who seemingly encourages Diaz to pursue a married man, but Nicki makes it clear she doesn’t share the same views as her character. “Marriage is sacred,” she says.
Nicki adds the only similarity she shared with her character was that they both wore wigs. However, Nicki now has done away with her flamboyant hairstyles and explained why she’s toned down her image.
“Before my first album even came out, I said on my third album, I would wear my natural hair,” said Nicki. “I did the wigs, I did the colors, I did the heavy makeup and all that stuff, and now I guess I’m more confident in myself.”
The Other Woman hits theaters on April 25.
