Nicki Minaj on Men: Treat 'Em Like Dogs!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Nicki Minaj is featured in the latest issue of Marie Claire, speaking on a number of personal and professional issues.

But it's the singer's view on the opposite sex that will likely leave people talking.

"Men love independent women," says Minaj, who is a big fan of strippers. "You don't have to be a bitch, but there's nothing wrong with it at times. And: Men are kids at heart. They want to be nourished and pet like a dog."

As for her time on American Idol? Her desire to become a mother? Read on for more excerpts from the Marie Claire Q&A...

On the fallout of judging Idol: "The perception that people had of me completely changed because there are no cue cards, there's no script, it wasn't me performing a song... My core is a genuine human being who roots for other people. I didn't want to blow smoke up their ass. I wanted every contestant to leave with something that they could remember."

On wanting to act after her next three albums: "If I can do that, I'll feel complete. One day, when I start getting a couple gray hairs, maybe it will all be only acting. I just never know... I've kind of become the poster child for doing the things that no one expects."

On her admiration for attorneys: They seem "glamorous in a way. Very inspiring and ballsy."

On wanting to be a mother: "You feel the need to pay it forward, which starts with analyzing yourself with a true desire to grow. I was praying every day, 'You know what, Lord? I want to be a mom one day, and I want to start becoming the woman who I want to parent my child.'

"I wanted all of the feelings of entitlement to leave me, because some people have this life for a year or five or 10 - and a lot of them lose it. I didn't want to become a person who wasn't enjoying the moment."
