This is Nicki in 2009, interviewed by Felipe at FADER. She has just dropped “Beam Me Up Scotty”, has normal color hair, a normal amount of make up on and a LOT of cleavage showing for this very playful flirtatious interview.
“I was not gonna get a Twitter, but they forced me to do it … I hated it, but I’m on Twitter now …”Â she confesses.
She talks about growing up in Queens and how it felt to be back in her neighborhood shooting a segment for MTV. All the young 13 to 17 year old girls knew who she was and were so excited to see her! At one point she hits on her interviewer, calling him cute and asking him if he can take a vacation with her. This is such a cute down to earth Nicki and as you can see the camera has always loved her, even without the wild costumes, pink wigs and such. Thanks to FADERtv for re-releasing this footage from not so long ago (a little less than 3 years). What do you think? Nicki then, or Nicki now?
