Get ready for a whole new Nicki Minaj.

During an appearance on Australia’s 2Day FM Breakfast, the rapper confesses she’s “at a turning point in my life.”

“I feel like I’ve been just reflecting and evaluating people who’ve been in and out of my life,” she reveals.


The “personal” changes, she says, are what inspired her latest single, “Pills N Potions.”

“People use things to medicate and feel better but a lot of times we don’t really deal with what’s really bothering us, and I think that’s what ‘Pills N Potions’ is about,” she explains.

Minaj continues, “It’s about finding a way to deal with it and then getting to a point where you can forgive and forget and move on.”

Many fans have noticed the music star sporting a more natural appearance, foregoing her once-signature crazy wigs and heavy makeup.

The makeover is evident in the “Pills N Potions’ video,” which she says is “very indicative of where I’m going in terms of my look and my sound.”

“I always kind of reinvent with each album and so this is not going to be any different,” she says. “This is the third album that I’m prepping for and so this is the look for the third album and I think ‘Pills N Potions’ just happens to kind of fit that stripped-down look really well.”

And Minaj, who made her film debut earlier this year in The Other Woman, shares that she wants to continue acting in the future.

“Every day I’m different, so some days I would love to do a drama, some days I would love to do a comedy,” she reveals, specifically saying she wants a “big role,” where she can “spend more time evolving into a character.”
