Like her or hate her as a judge on American Idol, Nicki Minaj is an unstoppable force. She’s managed to have a super successful hip-hop/rap career, more than dabbled in fashion and makeup, and landed a job as a judge on one of the top reality shows on TV. She was also just nominated for the Choice Hip-Hop/Rap Artist for this year’s Teen Choice Awards. Her Minajesty now has one more accomplishment to add to her impressive resume – film star! Is she trying to battle Ryan Seacrest for the most jobs?
Nicki is in the Big Apple this week, beginning to film her scenes in The Other Woman, which stars Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton, and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. We’re going to go out on a limb and say that it’s a comedy. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Nick Cassavetes-directed film “centers on a woman (Diaz) who finds out that she is ‘the other woman’ in an affair. She teams up with the wife (Mann) to get revenge on the cheating cad of a husband, played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.”
According to the most-likely-ousted Idol judge’s website, she stars as the “opinionated, sharp, and brutally honest” assistant of Cameron’s character. Not bad. Not bad at all! Considering all we’ve seen on season 12, we can totally picture that.
What do you think – is Nicki going to be able to pull this off?
