Nicki Minaj is speaking out about her skimpy Halloween costume.
After wearing nipple pasties, fishnets and not much else on Halloween as "Officer Minaj," the "Super Bass" singer-rapper explained why she chose to wear the risqué attire.
"I've just been feeling a lot freer," Nicki told Power 105.1 FM. "If you feeling yourself, you might just want to show the world. Sometimes you just hold so much back and it's like look, 'I'm a girl, I won't be able to do this when I'm 60 years old.'"
And she also blamed the outfit on a shortage of cheetah costumes.
"I didn't know it was going to be that big of a deal! My friend Sherika brought me that costume two hours before I put it on," Nicki went on. "My stylist couldn't come through with the costume that I was gonna get. I was gonna do this cheetah thing, paint my face, so I was like, well let me get any old thing and that was the any old thing."
Halloween costume aside, Nicki also confirmed she's been working on her next album.
"It's very different from anything I've done, which I'm surprised about," she said. "I'm not feeling like I did this. I feel like this is next level."
"And with the album, thank God, I've experienced so much in the last year and a half that there is so much for me to talk about and I know my fans are going to be excited about it."
This will be the rapper's third LP.
