Nicki Minaj in her best British accent, spoke on getting her major role in Ice Age 4 to MTV.
My agency sent me out on an audition for some people who really wanted to hear me. They knew I loved animation, they knew I loved to do voices and I thought, “Oh, my God this is amazing.”
The original role that I was up for I didn’t get and so I said, ‘well, okay whatever’. I was really mad and then next thing you know they called me and said, “You know what! We actually wrote in a part just for you because we really want you to be a part of this movie.”
I was just screaming and so excited and I went in and I had a blast. I was doing my voice over and I did it as two different voices and I basically said ‘listen, I’m going to do every line in two different voices and you decided which character you want. So yeah, they were amazing and we’ll see what happens.”
