Nicki Minaj says the truth behind her appearance is usually far less glamorous than expected.
The 30-year-old singer is the star of the latest US edition of Marie Claire magazine.
In a behind-the-scenes video from her glamorous photoshoot, Nicki confessed she prefers comfort when she is not being filmed and admitted to an odd shopping obsession.
"Dirty [Hello Kitty] slippers, that's what's on my feet right now," she smirked. "The thing I find myself buying over and over again, well I have this weird thing; I don't know what it is... I buy a new toothbrush every day. Is that weird?!"
Nicki appears wearing a variety of racy and off-the-wall ensembles, which has become her signature look. She wears a variety of cartoon-like wigs for her shoot, as well as red leathers, powerful bodycon numbers and Versace jewels. The only thing she would draw a line at is wearing real fur.
"I love this look [I look like Cher in the '70s]. Is that real fur? If so, I don't really want to wear it," she continued.
To keep her figure in shape, Nicki eats a selective diet. She doesn't have a regular workout routine and tries to avoid exercise at all costs.
"My go-to menu is steak with a side order of corn," she shared.
"I don't work out. I hate it. I don't mean to sound super-lazy. I tried it for a time. I lost my boobs. When I feel I need to lose weight, I just change what I eat. I cut carbs and sugar. I'll do water and protein and fruit. But I do think that you should work out. My doctor tells me that, and I get it. Do cardio, Barbz."
