Nicki Minaj to Women: Treat Yourself Like a Boss

American Idol judge Nicki Minaj isn't just giving out feedback to contestants these days. She's also providing advice for women in general.

The rap star covers this month's issue of ELLE and offered some thoughts she has for women as well as her plan for global domination.

"My advice to women in general: Even if you're doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want and don't allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge. You want everyone to know, 'Okay, I can't play games with her. I have to do right by this woman,'" she said.

In regards to her plan for taking over the world?

"My goal in the beginning was to buy my mother a house. Now I realize, Okay, if I really focus and become a key player in business, then I can build an empire. I'm thinking of a legacy that I can be proud of and wealth that my grandchildren can use to go to college. So world domination- in terms of providing for my family – is absolutely my goal."

So there you have it, ladies: treat yourself like a boss and take over the world.
