July 13th marks the release of ‘Ice Age: Continental Drift”, starring Queen Latifah, Jennifer Lopez, Drake and Rap Svengali Nicki Minaj.
So, before the epic adventure hits theaters, Minaj took to Flicks And Bits to discuss her character ‘Steffie’, her admiration for co star Latifah and why her family still can’t believe she landed the role.
Her comments below:
Well, Steffie, she’s a cutsie little ladybug, and of course I call everyone ladybugs if I really love them. But of course she’s not a ladybug, she’s huge, but she’s so beautiful.
She’s a mammoth, she has blonde hair and she does really cute stuff with her hair. She does her lashes, she does stuff with Mascara. And, you know, she’s cutsie! I think she’s great.
On her family’s reaction to her scoring the role:
I can’t believe I’m in an ‘Ice Age’ movie. My nieces and my little brothers, they’re freaking out. They think I’m making it up. They won’t believe it until the movie comes out that I’m doing a voice in ‘Ice Age 4.
Then on Latifah:
I’ve looked up to her for so many years, she embodies everything that I’d like to do, you know? She went from acting, she does acting, animation voices – she’s everything to me.
To be a part of something she’s a part of makes me very proud. Just working in that environment, the people on the movie were dope people. Everyone was so encouraging. When I was working on it I was like, “This is the best job in the world!”
