NEW YORK (CBS) Rapper Nicki Minaj is usually known for battling MCs on the mic with salacious flows, but now the Queens, N.Y., hip hop star is in the hot seat for more than just suggestive rhymes.
The 25-year-old emcee is the latest star caught up in sex tape rumors.
Urban gossip blog MediaTakeOut.com has purportedly seen graphic and explicit video of a woman who they say looks surprisingly like Nicki.
Minaj is well known on mainstream radio for her tune "Knockout" with fellow rapper Lil' Wayne. Thetwo are label mates on his Young Money/Motown imprint.
Celebrity Circuit hasn't seen the tape, so we're not going to speculate on who might be in it, but Minaj has lots to say about being a sex symbol.
"I don't know where I fit in the spectrum of rap yet ... people thought I was more of a sex symbol or wannabe sex symbol," she told Fader Magazine back in February, adding "I'm trying to entertain, and entertaining is more than exuding sex appeal. I don't think that's fun. I don't find it fun watching someone trying to be sexy. It's wack."
Like it or not, there's a good chance many more eyes will be watching Nicki in the days ahead.
