    Talking up her gay alter ego, Roman Zolanski, in Out, MC says Lil Wayne tour could be enlightening for the duo's fanbases. 

    Nicki Minaj just might be the one to bridge the gap.

    The 25-year-old female MC hasn't even released her debut album, Pink Friday, yet, but already her quirky hooks and outrageous fashion have made her one to watch in the gay community. Minaj has a bevy of gay fans, and she's hoping that she'll be the one to spearhead a movement to eradicate homophobia in hip-hop. She talks up her gay fans, her bi-curious lyrics and her embrace of her female following in the latest issue of Outmagazine, hitting shelves next week.

    When you're making a live solo performance debut on TV, you have to make it count. And Young Money honey Nicki Minaj is not one to pull up short. Which explains why she poured herself into a pink-and-purple spacesuit topped by a cotton-candy-colored wig for the MTV VMA pre-show run of her new single, "Check it Out."

    Accompanied by two dancers in matching outfits, Nicki stood stock-still like a futuristic superhero for the song's intro, then began to wiggle her world-famous hips over the song's sample of the iconic MTV launch-pad tune "Video Killed the Radio Star." Tossing in some high kicks and plenty of looks at her ample assets, Minaj held onto a railing ringing the stage and shook it slow as guest will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas strutted out to drop his verse....
