Nicki Minaj performed with a perfect British accent, played the clarinet, rapped a freestyle, and opened up about her life in the spotlight.
Nicki Minaj was a fantastic guest for James Corden’s “Carpool Karaoke” segment, which returned to The Late Late Show after a two-year break.
As fans tuned in and clips began to circulate, the rap legend was trending No. 1 on Twitter. A spot-on Adele impersonation was the one that got the most attention.
Nicki Minaj is well-known for her alter egos, which include Roman Zolanski, her self-proclaimed favorite Brit. However, it turns out that her impersonation of British pop superstar Adele is both frighteningly accurate and hilarious.
Nicki Imitates Adele
“People pay for these sort of viral moments, you know what I mean?!” Minaj imitated Adele’s voice.
“It made me so, so happy,” Adele said when Corden asked about her reaction to Adele’s interpretation of Minaj’s “Monster” verse in a previous segment. Nicki Minaj was embodied in her!”
Nicki rapped a freestyle while James Corden demonstrated his beatboxing abilities. “You did good though,” she said. “On the white scale, it wasn’t that white.”
Nicki Opened Up About Her Experiences.
Nicki Minaj also talked about her nervousness and dealing with public scrutiny during the session.
“I think when I was younger, probably my more natural state was to be more confident. But I think when you are a woman and you’re in the public eye all the time, if you’re not careful, you can become less confident because you’re being constantly scrutinized,” she said. She also explained that chewing ice relieves her anxiety. “It’s not natural for a human being to just always feel like everyone’s critiquing them.”
Nicki, on the other hand, felt “an amazing sense of freedom” at the early days of her career because “nobody gave a f**k” about what she was doing. “It goes from that to the complete, complete opposite,” she opened up. “If I blink my eye wrong, they’ll have a story made up about why I blinked my eye that way,” she said.
