Nicki Minaj is best known for slinging tough girl raps and producing chart-topping hits, but she’s also revered for her famous figure. The Harajuku Barbie recently addressed the public’s fascination with her luscious derriere, telling Funkmaster Flex on MTV2’s Full Throttle that it doesn’t faze her.

“I don’t mind the question, I don’t mind the fascination. It’s all good,” she giggled. “I’ve said this before: it doesn’t define me, so I try my best not to focus my energy on it. Like if you guys focus energy on it, I don’t mind it. if people are sitting in a barbershop talking about my butt, it’s conversational. That’s what people are going to do. As long as they’re talking about Nicki Minaj, it’s good.”

The Young Money rapstress recently revealed to HipHopDX that she’s anxious to begin work on the follow-up to her platinum debut Pink Friday. She is scheduled to perform this Sunday in a star-studded tribute to Beyonce at the 2011 Billboard Music Awards.
