2015 boded well for Nicki Minaj, as she had a successful Pinkprint Tour and is gearing up to star in Barbershop 3 and produce her own ABC Family comedy series. Today (December 10), Billboard unveiled the rapstress as their cover starlet on the No. 1s issue.

For her revealing interview, the “Feeling Myself” artist discusses marriage, getting advice from Beyonce and Jay Z and her thoughts on the current presidential campaign. “Obviously, I identify with her struggles as a woman. I identify with the fact that when she’s in that room and there are nothing but men there — there’s sometimes something in her that must feel intimidated. But I think that she uses that and turns it into a strength. Because that’s what I’ve always done. And so I love her for sticking it out,” Minaj stated about Hillary Clinton. She also thinks Donald Trump is childish (he has proven that time and time again).

The rapper goes on to discuss her relationship with Meek Mill (her recent Instagram pics of a diamond ring has sparked many rumors): “He and I are not engaged. But he said he would like to give me three rings before we get married. My birthday’s coming up, and he better get the new one, because he got [the first one] for my last birthday. So let’s see what happens.”

For all the impatient Barbz out there, Nicki is planning to drop a new mixtape soon. “Well, I want to touch a couple of beats that I wasn’t on. I could have bodied a lot of the records that came out in the last year. But the main thing is, I have to set an example for female rappers. I’m at the top of that food chain, and it’s important to lead by example,” she tells Billboard.
