Beyoncé had Sasha Fierce. Brandy has Bran’ Nu, Mary J. Blige had Brooklyn. Female artists taking on different alter-egos is nothing new.
Nicki Minaj plans to make sure we know all three of her different personalities on her debut album, which she promises to deliver before the end of the year.
In an interview with MTV News, Nicki said that people will finally get to meet Onika Tanya Maraj, which is Nicki’s real name, as well as her other alter-ego Roman Zolanski, once they hear her album.
“When people hear the album, they’re going to get to know Onika. And no one knows Onika yet… As of now you’ll know Nicki and you’ll know Roman. Roman is my crazy alter-ego. Roman Zolanski, or you can call her Roman Zolansky, but you’ll meet Onika before the year ends.”
