“There’s a freeness that you have around you when you’re at your best, when you’re doing your thing at your peak.” So says Nicki Minaj, who has been hard at work writing, recording, mixing, and re-mixing her fifth studio album, “Pink Friday 2,” out next month. For the best-selling female rapper of all time, now 13 years into her career, the new record represents a return to form. “When I look back at a lot of my music, I’m like, Oh, my God, where was the me in it?” Minaj says. “So for this album, I went back to the old game plan.”

For Vogue’s December Issue, @nickiminaj opens up about her highly anticipated new project; giving birth to her son amid the isolative unease of the pandemic; and feeling at peace with her body—something that encourages in other women, too.

“I grew up watching fighters,” Fantasia says, describing the women in her life, specifically her mother and her late grandmother. “I watched them fall and I watched them get back up. They never quit. A lot of that is embedded in me. It’s in my blood. It’s in my DNA.”⁠

In her Power of Women cover story, the “American Idol” Season 3 winner opens up about turning down Oprah, surviving an overdose and returning to the role of Celie in upcoming film “The Color Purple.”⁠

Presenting our next #GQMOTY cover star: Travis Scott.

This year, @travisscott bounced back into the spotlight with the summer’s biggest album and a mega-tour to match. And yet, he’s still striving for something even grander.
