Everyone together now: Go, T-Swizzle, go T-Swizzle, go T-Swizzle, go!!!

We all knew Taylor Swift could sing country music, and songs of the pop variety as well. This artist even showed semblance of acting chops in Valentine's Day.

But who knew Swift was hiding some serious rapping skills this entire time? During an interview with Nashville radio station 107.5 yesterday, Taylor was asked to break down a couple Nicki Minaj lyrics. She obliged. In very impression fashion.

Nicki Minaj says she just wants to be remembered.

For this 26-year old hip hop star, though, the only memory she has of her childhood is one in which she worried about the actions of her drug-addicted father.

"All of my young and teenage early years, we lived in fear that my mother would be killed by my father," Minaj told The Sun this week. "It was ridiculous. It made me act out to guys and be evil to them when I was growing up."

Saying the experience made her "tough," Nicki describes her father as "violent, physically and verbally." Things only improved when her brother grew up and stood up to their dad.

"I will cry about something, but I never let anything stop me," Minaj says of how her childhood has shaped her. "I can't be like my mom. I know I can cut ties and still make it. She didn't cut ties when I felt like she should have."

While critics take issue with Minaj's attitude, she only cares about those on Twitter who have thanked her for telling her story and giving them hope that they can also overcome obstacles. She says:

"That makes me feel good. If these girls walk around thinking they are the baddest thing on the planet, I am happy. That's my manifesto. That's my mission statement."

What do Nicki Minaj and Ted Williams have in common? Little, except for this: neither wants to be forgotten.

Williams sent this message to America before leaving for rehab this week, while Minaj says in the latest issue of V:

Nicki Minaj: The Devil?

“I’m an entertainer - I like to make people laugh. Some will hate it and some will love it, but all will remember it. And that’s what I want: to be remembered. Even if I’m saying something hard-core or controversial, there’s always a touch of humor, and if you don’t like it, it means I’m stirring things up inside of you.”

Speaking on her unique persona, the rapper also says: “I would crumple up and die if I had to wake up and be the same person every day."

She certainly changes things up in this magazine's pictorial. Click on the following images to enlarge each one:

Nicki Minaj may have hooked up with Drake on New Year's Eve, but that doesn't mean this rapper is taken.

She tells E! News in a new interview: "I'm single and ready to mingle."

Among other topics Minaj tackles below: her feelings on Taylor Swift and comparisons to Lady Gaga.

What's next? We're shooting the video with Rihanna for "Fly" this weekend. We're going to save the world in more ways than one with the video and that's all I can say about that... I love Ri-Ri!

Would she duet with Taylor Swift? Of course!

Doe she mind comparisons to Lady Gaga? Gaga is badass. Being compared to greats can never bother me.

What does her success mean? I'm proud that women, female rappers that come in this game after Nicki Minaj can see that, you know what? There is a chance for you to sell just as much as the boys and to be recognized. And you don't have to feel like, because you're a female rapper, you going to not be recognized. And so for that alone, I'm proud. I'm happy.

Nicki Minaj and Drake got hot and heavy over New Year's. Not too surprising, since they're married, after all. Just kidding ... probably.

After separate New Year's Eve performances in Miami, the couple reportedly met up during the after hours for some hot, heavy cuddling.

According to reports, Drake bolted to meet up with Nicki promptly after leaving his party so that they could have some alone time together.


DRICKI: An eyewitness saw them leaving together after partying until 4 am.

"Right after the clock struck midnight, Drake left his party at the W South Beach and dashed over to Nicki's Moet & Chandon-sponsored bash at Mansion."

"[They] were dancing and cuddling all night."

Commence wedding rumors, round two! These two are SO into each other. As far as the Nicki Minaj sex tape rumors? Those we cannot vouch for.

ABC did not have a monopoly on New Year's Eve performances.

While Ke$ha and company rocked out on that network special, Nicki Minaj appeared on BET’s 106 & Party and got a little help from Drake in order to ring in 2011. At the Marquee Nightclub at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, meanwhile, we were treated to a husband and wife duet.

Below, watch Minaj in action, along with Jay Z and Beyonce keeping things cool with a version of "Forever Young."

For his latest music video, Kanye West receives a little help from his friends. Fortunately, Kim Kardashian isn't one of them.

Directed by Jake Nava, the video for "Monster" features Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, and Justin Vernon. Says Ross of the female rapper's role in the following single:

“That was the day Nicki Minaj earned my respect as a lyricist. Before that day she was a great entertainer, but for me to get in the studio with my own two eyes and see her write her verse, I knew that was gonna be one of the greatest verses of this year.”

What do you think of this single/video?

Nicki Minaj is single, and seeking.

The rapper is featured in the latest issue of King (The Illest Men's Magazine Ever!) and opens up to the publication about what she's looking for in a man. To wit:

"Someone who is calm, who is strong enough to not have to win every argument, who allows a woman to be her crazy self and someone with a conscience not to feel less of a man. Someone who is able to honor his woman but also bring out the freak in his woman."

Minaj also says she'd love to make the transition into acting. Her dream role? "Someone in a Tim Burton movie, where I get dressed up and painted and crazy." Nicki as the next Johnny Depp? We'd pay to see that.

I made a conscious decision to try to tone down the sexiness, I want people, especially young girls, to know that in life, nothing is going to be based on sex appeal. You’ve got to have something else to go with that.

Might these words prove ironic for Nicki Minaj?

The rapper is the latest celebrity at the center of a sex tape scandal, as The Boom Box claims the video was filmed prior to Minaj hitting it big and that it's being hawked for $100,000.

No words yet out of the rapper's camp.

Earlier this week, word spread of a Demi Lovato sex tape, but that was quickly shot down by the singer's rep. We'll keep you apprised of any reaction, or videotaped pounding, from Nicki.
