Los Angeles - Nicki Minaj is going to be making movies in 2016.

The 33-year-old rapper-and-actress is set for an exciting next several months with a starring role in comedy sequel Barbershop: The Next Cut and another top secret movie project.

ABC sitcom Nicki, which is based on her childhood, will also hit TV screens next year and she is thrilled people are going to meet her as a youngster.

She said: "I have a lot of acting happening in 2016. Barbershop is coming out. It's their third one, and I'm happy to be a big part of this one. My fans are gonna love this.

"People who aren't my fans are gonna love this. It's so amazingly written, the comic timing is so epic, the writing is so great. The cast is so well thought out and well put together"

Can't wait for you guys to see this movie. #APRIL #BarberShop ??????????????

She added: "I'm gonna work on another movie! I haven't said much about that. And of course my TV show will be coming out. I'm excited to introduce the world to the young Nicki. It's gonna be a lot of fun."

Next year, Nicki also wants to continue to "inspire women and girls" to become "exceptional".

The Anaconda hitmaker - who is believed to be engaged to Meek Mill - is proud to be a role model to her fans and what she wants to achieve more than anything else with her work is to make them believe they can do anything in their lives.

She told "I want to shout out to all the go-getters out there, the women that are determined to make it, determined to chase their dreams and to become more than what people predicted. I'm a big fan of women who venture out and do more than people possibly thought they could do. Women who've been told no, just sit back, sit in the back, you don't have to do that much, you don't have to be the top, you don't have to be the boss. And those women make me excited. They inspire me.

"That's what I wanna do. I wanna inspire girls and other women that need some sort of inspiration that's it never too late to become dynamic and exceptional in whatever you do."
