Nicki Minaj is featured in Elle Magazine's new April music issue where they dissected some of her most popular lyrics, spoke on her style, as well as her idea of not wanting to play the "sidekick" role. “I always wanted to play with the boys,” she said to Elle. “I didn’t want to be a pawn in their game or have a sidekick role. I wanted to be more of a lead character—a superhero.”

Elle also put together a behind-the-scenes clip of the YMCMB rapper's feature shoot. Watch it below.
