Nicki Minaj called in to The Breakfast Club Monday morning to talk about meeting her idol Lauryn Hill for the first time. "Oh my God, such a surreal moment," she said. "I couldn't control myself I was at a loss for words. And she was super sweet and gracious and I was not expecting that." According to Nicki, she was totally caught by surprise. "All of a sudden, I literally said the words 'do y'all realize my idol is right there,' and within 30 seconds of me saying that she walked into my room," she added.
Nicki also revealed that her Marie Claire cover was actually shot several months ago. She said it was odd to suddenly be hearing about it when it all came together so long ago.
Elsewhere in the interview, Nicki discussed her love for Young M.A., her upcoming collaboration with Fetty Wap, and what she has up her next album. You can listen to her entire interview in the video above.
