The new first lady of Young Money, Nicki Minaj, recently opened up about her gay fan base and how much of an impact they have on her movement in the new issue of Out magazine, which she also covers (see below). In the feature, Nicki talks about Lil Wayne's uneasiness toward gay fans.
"Obviously, the majority of the men in hip-hop don't s want you to think they're gay. That's just the reality of it," Minaj says. "I'm a woman, so I have a lot more flexibility. And I don't lose credibility in any way if I say I think girls are dope and sexy…Normally, Wayne probably wouldn't have gay guys coming to see his shows much, but they're definitely a big part of my movement, and I hope they'd still come out and see me…I think that will be really, really interesting, just to start bridging that gap. We'll see."
