With her pink wigs, neon makeup, and outrageous costumes, Nicki Minaj looks like a character straight out of a Tim Burton film - and that just might be her intention.
Discussing her acting ambitions in the March/April issue of King magazine, the 26-year-old hip-hop sensation said, "I’d like to play someone in a Tim Burton movie, where I get dressed up and painted and crazy."
Besides appearing in a fantasy flick, master-of-disguise Minaj also hopes to make a "Salt"-style spy thriller. "I want to be able to do some action stuff, like Angelina Jolie," she said.
"I’d like to just play a regular girl who, you know, is facing the world," said the "Right Thru Me" singer. "Something really sentimental and organic, that girls all around the world can identify with. You know, how Jada Pinkett Smith did in 'Jason's Lyric.'"
