Rapper Nicki Minaj recently spoke to MTV News about the tragic ending in her Your Love video. While explaining the concluding scene, Minaj says, “I just felt like that was the most emotional and truthful storyline.” The 25-year-old Young Money signee said, “I felt like mostly everyone would normally make themselves win in the end, and I wanted to put a twist.”

Minaj goes on to share, “I wanted to show that the only way I can be beat is if you cheat.” The rapper continues, “If you play fair and square, I’m gonna win.”

Suddenly, out of no where, Minaj transitions into a sporadic and exaggerated English accent further explaining her video stating that she wanted people to cry.

Ok. Pause. So were we the only ones who commenced into a quickie laughter, and soon after, when we noticed she was really serious, began to frantically scratch our heads?

This isn’t the first time Minaj graced us with her linguistic skill. The rapper performed her English accent before while hosting BET’s Rip The Runway. We’ll leave it to our across the pond folks to determine the realness of Minaj’s off-Mel B rant. For our American ears, it wasn’t half bad. But could a career in acting better suit the controversial artist?

The Trinidad-born performer actually studied acting and singing at LaGuardia High School in Manhattan, New York. Minaj has repeatedly expressed her interest in acting, citing Jada Pinkett-Smith, among other multi-talented artists, as influences. It seems that beyond her lyricism, followers of Minaj are drawn to her crafty persona, her unpredictable costumes and stage antics. Looks like the perfect recipe for a rapper turned actress to us.

So what do you say, should Minaj venture into acting sooner than later? Check out the video and judge for yourselves!

    Her accent is spot on!

    She’s good at doing impersonations obviously but as far as being a good actress i’m not sure; i’d need to see her do something other than a different accent during a short interview.

    I can’t for the life of me articulate exactly why but I’m a fan. I think her personality is well-suited for an acting career. She’d be wise to capitalize on the spotlight and pick up some film and TV projects ASAP.

    Thanks to rappers like Nicki Minaj, real hip hop is quickly being buried in oblivion. I think she has a talent which is definitely not rapping. May be acting? She would be a catchy porn actress though. No punks intended!

    She’s a great artist but as far as acting NO. No offense dont get me wrong she’s talented but acting just isn’t her field according to comments of her movie “Stuck On Broke” she wasnt good, So Nicki continue doing ur music it rocks but acting is a no no, sorry
