Nicki Minaj became the first rapper to grace the cover of Marie Claire magazine and revealed that she wants to be a mother one day.

On the front page the magazine's August 2013 issue, the "High School" rapper, who's real name is Onika Tanya Maraj appears on the cover in a variety of different looks. Toned down from her infamouse barbie pink hair, Minaj looks elegant as her blonde hair hangs down her shoulders. In one image, she is dressed in a skin-tight leather body suit and wears a large black mohawk on her head.

Inside the magazine, she talks about a "weird epiphany" about being a mother. She said she allowed herself to feel proud of her own music but came to place where she wanted more in life.

"I was praying every day," the rapper said. ''You know what, Lord? I want to be a mom one day, and I want to start becoming the woman who I want to parent my child.' I wanted all of the feelings of entitlement to leave me, because some people have this life for a year or five or 10 - and a lot of them lose it. I didn't want to become a person who wasn't enjoying the moment."

The 30-year-old revealed that being a judge on American Idol  last season "completely changed" her because she had to show her real personality. Despite her feud with former fellow judge Mariah Carey and being hard on some of the show's contestants, the rapper said that she was rooting for everyone.

"I didn't want to blow smoke up their a**. I wanted every contestant to leave with something that they could remember," she said.

Before becoming a rapper and superstar, Minaj admitted that she wanted to be a lawyer before she became famous.

"I just loved the thought of going into a courtroom with mostly men and defending someone - just being able to persuade people with your words. It seems glamorous in a way," she said.
