Nicki Minaj proved she's an expert in silly questions that famous people get asked thanks to her interview parody video for Elle's April issue. Nicki, this month's cover star, sits across from "Nichole," the fashion mag interviewer, and discusses meaty topics like childhood, women and sexuality, and black thongs. "Nichole's" blinking, unrestrained smile, knowing nod, and liberal uses of the word "like" while in character will make you really feel for what these poptarts have to go through during a publicity push. Almost. Enjoy after the jump.
