Nicki Minaj is a ''disciplined'' artist, according to music DJ and producer Diplo.
Nicki Minaj is a ''disciplined'' artist.
The 34-year-old rapper has been credited as a hard-working and focused musician by music producer Diplo, who has recently been collaborating with the 'Superbass' hitmaker on new music after trying to work with her for ''a couple of years''.
Speaking to Zane Lowe, the 'Lean On' hitmaker said: ''I was working on some stuff for her record. The timing was right. I've been trying to get Nicki to do something with us for a couple years now.

The 57-year-old performer started her tour in Montreal
Undoubted Queen of Pop Madonna has always been a bit of a rebel and her latest tour may be one of her most rebellious yet with an appropriate name to boot. The 57-year-old songstress kicked off her Rebel Heart Tour in Montreal this week complete with pole dancing nuns, Mike Tyson and non-stop theatrics.

The production wizard can't understand why some people want to see Madonna fail, talking about the comparative underperformance of her new album 'Rebel Heart'.
The 36 year old DJ and producer was speaking with Rolling Stone magazine, and claimed that it was bizarre that there was such animosity out there for the pop veteran, considering the vast influence’s had upon popular culture in the last 30 years.

Bieb’s has stripped off for the magazine’s cover but inside the singer is baring his heart to lifestyle guru Martha Stewart.
A shirtless and tattooed Justin Bieber covers the latest issue of Interview magazine, posing as part of a racy pictorial by famed photographer Steven Klein. Inside the mag the 21 year old singer is photographed in various stages of undress (as well as wearing a clown mask) for the series of provocative polaroids. But the real revelations come from Bieber’s interview with unlikely friend Martha Stewart, who has the singer opening up about his new music and his love life.
Justin Bieber covers the latest issue of Interview magazine.
Stewart and Bieber may seem like an unlikely pairing but the two recently spent time together at the singer’s Comedy Central Roast this past March. Looking back over the singer’s pre-fame days, Stewart asked the hit maker if he had dropped out of high school. Answering with a firm, ‘No’, Bieber revealed that he actually graduated in from high school in 2012 with an impressive 4.0 GPA.
Kay Perry's ex-boyfriend admits it was a "big mistake" to take on Taylor's legion of fans
Swifties (or Taylor Swift fans for those not in the know) are not to be messed with which was something that DJ and producer Diplo found out to his determent after starting a feud with the international singing sensation.
Taylor Swift has an army of fans and they are not to be messed with according to Diplo
The ex-boyfriend of Katy Perry, who is a rumoured enemy of Swift herself, has revealed to British GQ magazine that starting a public spat with Swift had been an error and described her legion of fans as similar to the North Korean army.

The duo had been performing a marathon DJ set together when they unleashed the new material.
EDM duo Skrillex and Diplo,aka Jack Ü, have surprised fans by releasing their debut album during an attempted 24 hour long DJ set. Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü hit iTunes an hour before its scheduled release on Thursday and features guest appearances by a host of artists, including one Justin Bieber.

The duo celebrated the album’s release by embarking on a marathon DJ set in Los Angles, which ended up being shut down by police at 6am after the party had already been going for 18 hours, according to Diplo’s twitter.
Remember that whole Diplo, Taylor Swift, Lorde twitter incident last year? Well it seems that one's been stirred up again thanks to Diplo's latest interview.
Back in November Diplo, the music producer, DJ and rumoured boyfriend of Katy Perry, tweeted that Taylor Swift needed a kickstarter to help her get ‘a booty’. This distasteful bit of twitter attention seeking caused the singer’s BBF Lorde to retaliate ‘should we do something about your tiny penis while we're at it’ and thus the great Diplo/Lorde/Taylor Swift feud was born. Or actually it wasn't, as nothing really happened after that. Until now that is, when Diplo decided to bring it all up again in an interview with GQ.
Diplo made comments regarding Taylor Swift's 'booty' last year
Addressing Lorde’s tweet Diplo said it was, “funny, because me and Lorde, we're actually friends, and it was a funny, in-jest conversation.” Adding “I think Taylor Swift is such an impactful character, that it was because she was involved that it became really big.”
Sia's new music video for 'Elastic Heart' has been raising a few eyebrows.
Sia returns with another spectacularly choreographed video, once again starring pre-teen dance prodigy Maddie Ziegler who is this time joined by a topless Shia LaBeouf in a caged face-off for the epic single 'Elastic Heart'.
Shia LaBeouf goes primal in Sia's 'Elastic Heart' video
Having previously appeared in the erratic video for Sia's multi-platinum single 'Chandelier', 12-year-old Maddie Ziegler makes a return complete with the same wig and nude-coloured leotard for another bout of expressive movement in 'Elastic Heart'; the song from the soundtrack of 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'. While her talent remains breathtaking in her latest venture, viewers were still quick to criticise the controversial content.
10) Illum Sphere - Ghosts of Then & Now
Former occasional turntablist for those funky divas Radiohead, Ryan Hunn created a record that blended jazz, drum & bass, hip-hop and soul amongst many others, channelling his famous live sets into an always fascinating whole.
9) Downliners Sekt - Silent Ascent
Fabrizio Rizzin and Pere Solé echoed everyone and no-one on this, their third album. Others made comparisons to Autechre, Burial and Booka Shade, but the reality was the duo were obsessively working their own deeply underground but still magical groove.
8) Objekt - Flatland
I'm not even sure we know definitively what "Dark Techno" is, but this second album for TJ Hertz under the Objekt banner proved to be far less dystopian than some anticipated. Flatland in truth was just as indebted to Detroit as Berlin, but it's sleek, clear lines were a lesson in intelligent design.

As reviewers are known to do, let's get it out there that Thomas Wesley Prentz's adopted tag is apparently short for Diplodicus; the lumbering 8 ton vegetarian dinosaur who got by with a brain the size of your average TOWIE cast member. Diplo hangs now mainly as Major Lazer and is a producer, remixer, DJ Madonna and Skrillex collaborator. Oh, and we forgot to mention former long time squeeze of M.I.A. Wow.
That cuts a lot of ice at Contact Towers, but then again recently we've seen enough album re-issues to be a little bit wary of anything that's barely out of short pants: call us old fashioned like that. Thankfully 'Florida' - released before our hero was much more than an up and coming beat maker - is the sort of maverick work that definitely bears a re-appraisal.
There are occasions where the source material is that good it becomes diluted by being swamped by a plethora of additional "Stuff", most of which is frequently just things which should have remained on some random hard drive somewhere. 'Florida''s second disk isn't that sort of loosely flapping appendage, but a series of works that are just as incisive as the host. We'll start here then, as the Epistemology suite (Really an oddball triptych) that was released under the Diplodicus banner in 2003 threatens some sort of sensory overload from the beginning. The three parts respectively are A) ear punishing breaks and wah wah sampleadelic grooves ('Don't Fall'); B) Weird stuff ('Like Cats'); and C) cod-dancehall-garage-psychedelia ('You're Enron'). Three points of a very wonky triangle, they're miles off forming any kind of coherent whole, but then again that's probably the point.
