(NEW YORK) — Nicki Minaj studied acting back in the day, and now she’s landed a role in a major movie. Deadline.com reports that the pop superstar and American Idol judge will co-star with Cameron Diaz in a movie called The Other Woman.
In the film, Diaz plays a lawyer who realizes her boyfriend’s married, so she teams up with his wife to plot revenge. Nicki will play the assistant to Diaz’s character, and Nicki’s character is described as “larger-than-life, opinionated, sharp and brutally honest.” Well, that shouldn’t be a problem for her, now should it?
The movie will start shooting in New York City in May, presumably after American Idol wraps for the season.
In other Nicki news, she tweeted that the lipstick shade she designed for MAC’s Viva Glam line is now the “#1 selling Viva Glam lipstick of all time,” adding, “thank u for supporting a good cause. mmmuuuaaahhh! ! ! !” 100 percent of the profits from Viva Glam go to help people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.
