Published May 31, 2011

Nicki Minaj knows what she wants in a man. In her latest cover story, the Queens-bred rapper tells #5 magazine that laughter is the key to win her over. Minaj said, “If he can make me laugh…he has to be smart. I love sarcasm in people; I love when you’re able to pick up on sarcasm and when you’re able to dish it out. I love quick comebacks.”


When suggested that her labelmate Drake fits the profile, Nicki said she agreed to a certain extent. “He’s really easy to talk to," she said. "As a girl, you don’t meet a lot of guys you can have a conversation with about anything; it’s dope.”


As for the British accent she's been using lately, Nicki said she speaks that way because she finds the accent alluring. “It’s so beautiful," she said. "It seems like it’s out of a storybook or something. Whenever I was in school and we had to act out plays and stuff…whenever we would have to wear the big gowns and corsets, we would have to put the London/British accent on. I would always be like, ‘their culture is so pretty.’ It’s like whimsical.”
