Looks like Nicki Minaj is tapping into any and everything. Along with her clothing line, perfume collection and acting career, the “Pills N Potions” rapper is returning to the virtual world.
Nicki lent her vocals for Cartoon Network’s “Steven Universe,” which was screened at Comic-Con last week. According to TV Guide, Nicki will voice Sugilite, a super-strong fusion of Garnet and Amethyst, two of the show's magically powered "gems" who help protect the world.
This isn’t Nicki’s first time vocalizing in the virtual world. She also voiced a mammoth named Hailey in Ice Age: Continental Drift (along with Drake) and also played an animated version of herself on “The Cleveland Show.”
