Nicki Minaj was announced as one of the cast members of the movie "Barbershop 3" which has some entertainment observers predicting that the movie will be a box office hit in large part due to her massive popularity as a hip-hop artist and entertainment personality.
The 'bigger' picture in the view os some entertainment insiders is that they see the thirty-two year old entertainer potentially following the path of Queen Latifah and Eve, rappers turned actors who realized that the best time to 'diversify' is when one is at the top of their craft.
Fans of Nicki Minaj are focused on her recent engagement to fellow music artist Meek Mill and the prospect of her getting married in what will likely be one of the biggest, storybook weddings of the year when it does occur and also her possibly starting a family soon afterward but her move into the world of acting has the attention of entertainment observers and some filmmakers.
She is probably one of the few music artists whose involvement in an acting project almost guarantees that the film will be a ratings success as she is one of the most popular entertainers in the entertainment industry and some insiders are hearing talk that if she shows the same 'magnetic' appeal in her "Barbershop 3" performance as she does on stage than Nicki Minaj is going to become an in-demand actress.
It is not a secret that some Hollywood filmmakers have been searching for a rap artist who has a similar appeal that Queen Latifah had when she was at the height of her music career because they know what a great 'draw' she became at the box office and the rap artist who possesses the potential to follow in her footsteps is the sexy Nick Minaj.
The music star who is looking like she has her sights set on expanding her brand into the world of acting is hip-hop/rap star Nicki Minaj.
