Actress Gwyneth Paltrow Says Nicki Minaj is a Genius

When you think of a hardcore rap fan Gwyneth Paltrow wouldn’t typically come to mind. The Oscar winner may not wear her musical tastes on her sleeve but she’s a serious hip hop lover. Paltrow was recently out promoting her latest film Country Strong, which centers on a country superstar dealing with addiction, a failing marriage, and an up and comer trying to steal her shine. While talking about her preparation for the role she revealed how Beyonce was a huge inspiration for her and how some of her favorite albums right now include the latest from Nicki Minaj and Kanye West.

When it comes to music on her iPod Paltrow has a little bit of everything.

“I listen to everything. I probably have the most schizophranic iPod. My biggest obsession right now is the Nicki Minaj album. She’s a genius. I’m also obsessed with Kanye’s album. I really like Dierks Bentley. He has a bluegrass record that I really love.”

When it came to pulling off her best music diva impression Paltrow channeled her inner Sasha Fierce.

“I watched Beyonce a ton because I think she’s the best live performer happening right now. She has this amazing confidence and I thought to myself if I could just get a tiny bit of that self confidence then maybe I can pull off this scene at the end. You wouldn’t necessarily think that Beyonce would be the inspiration for a country star [laughs].”

You can find out if all that training paid off when Country Strong hits theaters on January 7, 2011.
