Nicki Minaj learned a lot from her experience working with Mariah Carey, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson on "American Idol."
Opening up in the latest issue of Marie Claire, Minaj says the show taught her that "less" is actually better than "more."
"I started feeling more comfortable with less," she admitted. "I learned so much about myself, like how perception is reality."
While Minaj has learned a lot, she has no plans to sit down, take a break or walk away from the entertainment industry anytime soon. In fact, her goal is to release three more albums and then turn to acting.
"I at least want to do three more albums. If I can do that, I'll feel complete," she told Marie Claire. "One day, when I start getting a couple gray hairs, maybe it will all be only acting. I just never know."
The August issue of Marie Claire, featuring Nicki Minaj, arrives July 16.
