MAGAZINES: Nicki Minaj POSES With Poodles For GQ, Explains “Anaconda” Video Is About CONTROL + Lenny Kravitz Talks Having More KIDS In UPTOWN

On newsstands, Nicki Minaj posed with some poodles and dished on the controversial “Anaconda” video in GQ while Lenny Kravitz discussed wanted more kids in  UPTOWN magazine.  More inside...

After sexing up L'Uomo Vogue in menswear, Nicki Minaj is gracing the pages of another magazine. The “Anaconda” raptress posed it up in between two pink and blue-died poodles in a sultry cut-out white top, her lady lumps on full display, and hip hugging blue pencil skirt for the November 2014 issue of GQ magazine.

As she gears up for the release of her third studio album, The Pinkprint, Nicki chops it up with GQ (barely since she dozed off at least four times during the interview) about her rump-shaking “Anaconda” video which she says is more about women keeping the power and control. Oh…

YMCMB’s first lady opens up about the scene with her chopping up a banana right before her lap dance with Drake saying,

"At first I'm being sexual with the banana, and then it's like, 'Ha-ha, no.' " I ask if she's referring to how the Drake scene immediately follows the kitchen scene. "Yeah, that was important for us to show in the kitchen scene, because it's always about the female taking back the power, and if you want to be flirty and funny that's fine, but always keeping the power and the control in everything."

Also in the video, there are a few products placed for advertising which actually seem a little out of place. She had her Beats by Dre speakers imprint, her Myx Fusions Moscato, a Victoria's Secret bra, some Air Jordans and a "teatox" drink called MateFit. Weird right? Well, there’s actually a method behind her madness. Money, of course! She said,

"My management team has a division that has a guy that his main focus is to go out there and find new brands for me to do business with or to find brands that would like to be in our videos and contribute to our budget.”

And about the "Anaconda" coverart that almost broke the Internet with countless mems:

"I just said I'll put it out, never thought in a billion years that people would be putting [other] people's heads on it. It's the craziest sh*t."

A snake, sequin blazer and Lenny's pecs= one sexy a** cover.

Rockstar Lenny Kravitz put his grown-man good looks on the cover of UPTOWN’s Oct/Nov issue. And we’re literally drooling over how the eligible bachelor is making 50 look so damn good.

The iconic guitarist (who dropped his newest album STRUT recently) opened up about the possibility of having more children, getting married again, his love for designer digs by Saint Laurent and his future. Below are the highlights:

On having more children, and what his daughter 25-year-old Zoë Kravitz offered:
"I would like to do it again. That’s the way I feel, but when I bring it up [Zoë’s] like, ‘Slow down. Slow down. I can have kids. Slow down.’ So I don’t know if she’s too keen on it."

On getting married again after dating starlets and supermodels:
"I’m waiting. It’s coming. It isn’t a far-off thing anymore."

 On his love of fashion, specifically Saint Laurent:
"What I like are clothes that are classic rock and roll. Saint Laurent has that retro inspiration but its cleaned up and made into modern fashion. Their clothes fit my silhouette. They’re clothes that feel like me."

Reflecting on the deaths of his mom and dad:
“I thank God every day for my health. [Health], for me, is where it begins and the rest is gravy. Also [I’m thankful] for being disciplined. As they say in the Bahamas, there are a lot of talented people living under the bridge. A lot of folks driving cabs, fishing and working in the streets can act and sing better than people getting Oscars and Grammys."

On his future:
"I feel like whatever I’m supposed to do or get or achieve will happen, and what’s not mine is not mine to have. My grandfather used to tell me when I was a kid, 'Nobody can take anything away from you that is yours.' He also used to say, 'the best is yet to come.'"

True indeed.
