The Other Woman - Nicki Minaj

Posted: Updated:

"The Other Woman's" leading ladies were in the top spot this weekend. There's a supermodel, a critics choice award nominee and a Golden Globe nominee in the flick. But did you know there's a Grammy nominee in there too? By the way, Kate Upton is not changing her day job and becoming a singer.

"The Other Woman" is full of leading ladies. Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton are getting top billing, but another woman is making her on screen debut in the hit movie.

Nicki Minaj. Yes, the  "Starships" singing and "Super Bass" rapping Nicki is Lydia.

Nicki Minaj: "She has her own outlook on life and relationships and you can't change her mind about anything."

Lydia has been married three times and a pro when it comes to relationships. So when Carly, played by Cameron Diaz, finds out her man has a wife and another girlfriend, Lydia has all the answers.

Nicki Minaj: "She wants Carly to settle down. Meet the right man and she gets involved a little bit, and she just bring this bad guy down. And getting Cameron to fall in love with a good person."

Nicki has performed for hundreds of thousands in sold out shows, but even pros get rattled when meeting big screen superstars like Cameron.

Nicki Minaj: "She is like the biggest star in the world and I was so nervous to meet her, but then when I met her she was like calming me down saying, 'No, it's great; don't worry.'"

Cameron and Nicki became fast friends but the singer also learned a thing or two from her new pal.

Nicki Minaj: "I felt like she don't only come on set, she's not only a pretty face and this great actress, but she is also taking interest in the lines and making sure those lines feel right for the character she is playing."

Nicki is used to awesome threads and hot hair so a phone call from the director was music to her ears.

Nicki Minaj: "I don't want everyone to think that I came into this movie and had to change my hair in every scene. It was actually the directors idea and it just made Lydia more colorful and crazy. She's nothing like Nicki Minaj."

Something tells me there's a lot of Nicki in Lydia.

    Some people are good at putting out fires. They're called firefighters. Others are good at baking pies. They're called bakers. But one man is excellent at both. He's a crusty firefighter, and we mean that in a really good way.
