With more Hot 100 appearances than any other female artist in history (106 to be exact), it’s pretty clear Nicki Minaj fans – affectionately called #Barbz – aren’t the only ones who have celebrated the diva’s collage of hits over the years.
Yet, while numbers from her discography are among the last decade’s most memorable, a recent interview saw her reveal she wished she could forget at least some of them.
Sitting down with her manager, Irving Azoff, for a keynote conversation at this year’s Pollstar Live conference in Los Angeles, the outspoken and colorful Minaj covered a kaleidoscope of topics including Trump, coming out of “retirement,” Kobe Bryant, and – of course – her signature hits.
Needless to say, the 37-year-old left the people with quite a few tongue-wagging quotes. See highlights inside:

“I wish I had never recorded ‘Anaconda,’” said the Rap queen. “My first-ever solo song on the Billboard was ‘Your Love.’ To this day, I hate it.”
As if that wasn’t enough, she also revealed 2012’s ‘Starships’ was on the list of musical regrets:
“I hate ‘Starships. Like ‘Starships are meant to fly?’ I was like, ‘Why did I do that?’ Like I really think that every time I hear it.”
