Nicki Minaj Dozed Off Four Times During ‘GQ’ Interview


Nicki Minaj had difficulty keeping awake while she was interviewed for a magazine and dozed off four times during the chat.

Minaj posed for a photoshoot in the latest issue of GQ magazine, and in the accompany interview she meets journalist Taffy Brodesser-Akner in her dressing room at the Barclays Center in New York and struggles to keep her eyes open.

Brodesser-Akner writes in the opening paragraph:

“Her eyelashes are even and delicate, like wisps from a dandelion, and I can’t recall if I’ve ever seen her without prosthetic versions. I have had plenty of time to search my memory, though, because here on this couch, in this room, during this interview, with me sitting next to her, Nicki Minaj has fallen asleep.”

The writer adds, “To be completely accurate, she never fell into actual REM sleep during our interview, but at four separate times she dozed off, her head jerking awake at just the moment it had started to dip. In between, she was what I could call low-key and reserved, because I am generous, but the picture looked like this: those eyelids, falling, falling over eyes that would cross momentarily, closing for a moment but staying too long – a blink that lasted a few blinks longer than a blink.”

What do you think caused the rap star to doze off? Long day? Boring interviewer? Let us know your theories in the comments below!
