Los Angeles, Dec 12 (IANS) Rapper Nicki Minaj wants to do more acting and would love to have a career like actress Meryl Streep.
“I want to do something very serious. Meryl Streep is one of my favourite artists of all time. She blows me away in just about everything she does. I love how she can go from ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ to ‘The Iron Lady’ — she’s so incredible in that,” Minaj was quoted as saying by Billboard magazine, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“My dream would be to have that type of acting career, where I can do both things believably,” she added.
Along with her music career, Minaj is also working with ABC on a sitcom about her childhood and she says she has got “too involved” with the project, much to her own surprise.
“I am maybe too involved. Two days ago I was in casting. I’m going back tomorrow. I found one girl who I’m obsessed with who might play me, and someone who could rival her. So I’ve been coaching them both. I do a beat, let them rap. I do little dances with them,” the “Anaconda” hitmaker said.
“It has been magical. I didn’t even know I had it in me, but I love children so much.”
