Nicki Minaj is 'too busy' for kids

NICKI Minaj is "too busy" to have children right now. 

The 'Anaconda' hitmaker, 31, doesn't feel ready to start a family at the moment with her boyfriend Safaree Samuels because it'll mean she'll have to take a break from her career to focus all of her attention on her kids.   

Speaking L'Uomo Vogue magazine, she said: "I don't want to work my whole life without ever experiencing the joys of a family.   

"The time is not yet ripe, but when I decide to get married and become a mother, I would like to take a hiatus and dedicate myself completely to my child.   

"Family has always been very important to me, and that is why I want to wait until the right moment before starting my own. Right now I am too busy, but at a certain point the situation will change."  

The rapper admits she admires Beyoncé, who she performed with in France last month, and the way she cares for her two-year-old daughter Blue Ivy while still pulling out all the stops for a successful career.  

She explained: "Seeing Beyoncé with her daughter [Blue Ivy] and husband [Jay Z] was so tender, and it showed me that it is possible to be an animal on stage and a caring mother at the same time."
