Backstage at the iHeartRadio Music Festival, Billboard spoke to Nicki Minaj about the success of her single “Super Bass“. Nicki also revealed that her alter ego, Roman Zolanski, would have a key role on her forthcoming sophomore album.

“I want to publicly say again that Taylor Swift really launched that single into another stratosphere, with just tweeting about it and rapping it and stuff,” says Minaj of “Super Bass,” currently at No. 9 on the Hot 100. “I performed it with Taylor, and she’s so cute, and she’s like a big bowl of ice cream!”

“It was Roman … and it was Slim Shady,” she told MTV News’ Sway while speaking in a British accent during her appearance on “RapFix Live.”

The real Slim Shady? “The real Slim Shady,” she confirmed. “It was the most fun song on Pink Friday. It gave me life. Absolutely, darling.”

“We went out on a whim and put it in the air like, ‘It’d be great if he would collaborate with us,’ ” Nicki Minaj said. “I remember I kept talking about it, and I thought, ‘It can’t hurt.’ I sent him one record, and he didn’t love it. He didn’t say, ‘I don’t love it’; he just said, ‘Can you send me something that’s a little more me?’ I sent him an e-mail and thanked him for that, just having enough respect. Sometimes people don’t respond. He had the respect, at least, to treat me like a peer.”

Eventually, Nicki revisited the Swizz track and completed the song. She wasn’t sure if she wanted a feature on the track, because she thought the song was so good as it stood. After thinking it over, however, she decided to reach out to Em.

“He picked up the phone for that one,” she said. – MTV

Nicki Minaj Promises Debut Album Will Drop This Year

“The album is coming along just spectacular,” Minaj told MTV News. “I been doing a lot of work with Swizz Beatz, and the stuff that we been coming upon is magical. When people hear the album, they’re going to get to know Onika (her birth name is Onika Maraj). And no one knows Onika. I really didn’t think I would be this excited about the songs that I’m coming up with. I’m really, really proud.”

The Lil Wayne protégé promised that her album would arrive before the year ends but said she’s in no rush.

So far, she’s released the song “Massive Attack,” and the rapper is currently prepping the video for “Your Love,” an accidental single that landed atop the Billboard Rap Songs chart.

In addition to opening up about her life, Nicki Minaj will be introducing another alter ego on the project: Roman Zolanski. But the animated femcee was hush on any details about that.

“I’m gonna let the album do that,” she demurred. “As of now, you’ll know Nicki and you’ll know Roman, my crazy alter ego Roman Zolanski. But you’ll meet Onika before the year ends.”
