Nicki Minaj on acting: "I know it's something I can do"

Rap star Nicki Minaj is considering how to make her impact on the film industry.

The ‘Starships’ rapper makes an appearance in the movie ‘The Other Woman’ but is hoping to land bigger roles in the future.

Minaj told MTV: “It gave me an idea as to what the world would be like... And now that I know it's something I can do, I think I want to expand a role eventually.”

She continued: “I am going on auditions, and I'm trying to find the right role with the right director and the right writers. I want to be part of something from the beginning stage this time, and I want the role to be custom-made for me.”

However the Young Money artist is open minded about what type of film she would like to get involved with:

“I have such a versatile personality… Some days I feel like I wanna do a Will Ferrell comedy; some days I feel like I wanna do more like a 'Set It Off'-type of movie with some other young black actresses and like creating a movement with that. And sometimes I think, maybe I could do 'X-Men' or something.”
