Nicki Minaj never intended to become Nicki Minaj the rapper. In fact, she always wanted to -- and still wants to -- be an actress.

"I went to school to be an actress. I never expected to be a rapper. It just fell in my lap," Minaj revealed to Entertainment Weekly at the MTV Movie Awards. "So I would like to get an acting gig. I hope that when I am done with the tour I can go back and do some acting. That is my long-term goal."

Should she ever find her way to the big screen, the out-there 'Pink Friday' songstress spilled that she'd love to star alongside Will Smith and work with director Tim Burton in a film. "I want to work with Will Smith, because he’s a very successful rapper turned actor and therefore a role model," she said. "And Tim Burton because I love his crazy imagination. He comes up with these characters that are just so fascinating and the costumes and just creates these whole worlds."

We think that Miss Nicki, with her crazy theatrical facial expressions, love of bright colors, and out-of-this-world outfits would be fine suited for a Tim Burton role. Might we suggest a 'BeetleJuice' remake with a certain wide-eyed female rapper as the lead?
