Nicki Minaj has spoken out about Madonna and says that the singer is huge inspiration for her.

The 'Superbass' rapper collaborated with the Queen of Pop on 'Give Me All Your Luvin', from Madonna's Number One selling album 'MDNA', and it appears the 'Girl Gone Wild' singer helped inspire Minaj's own new album 'Pink Friday:Roman Reloaded'.

In an interview for American TV show, Today, Minaj explained the influence Madonna had on her own musical experimentation.

She said:

She's re-invented not only herself but pop culture. What inspires me about Madonna is that she's able to balance this, all of this, with her family and her personal life.

The rapper was speaking on the show to promote her second album 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' . The album features collaborations with the likes of Nas, Drake and Lil Wayne as well as Chris Brown. It includes the singles 'Starships' and 'Stupid Hoe' as well as future release 'Right By My Side'.

To read our review of the album, pick up the latest issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands and available digitally tomorrow (April 4).
