Nicki Minaj Admits She’s a Diehard Fan Of “The Crown”
It looks like The Crown’s fanbase is increasing day by day! Recently, the “Queen of Rap,” aka Nicki Minaj, took to her official website to share her love for the Netflix series with her fans.
Addressing them as her “darlings,” she said that apart from completing her recent projects, she’d been watching The Crown on Netflix almost every single day. The rapper revealed that Barbershop: The Next Cut co-writer, Kenya Barris, had first advised her to watch the historical drama, and since then, she’s been head over heels in love with the show.
She confessed that she had watched every episode of every season at least five times (what?!). Minaj even gave a shout-out to some of the show’s cast members for their amazing performances. Let’s take a closer look at all that she said.
Nicki Minaj goes gaga over The Crown stars!
Minaj complimented British actress Claire Foy for playing Queen Elizabeth in the first two seasons of The Crown. She said she loved watching Foy’s face, which always had the perfect expression in sync with the scenes.
The 38-year-old also praised American actress Gillian Anderson and English actors Helena Bonham Carter, Olivia Colman, and Josh O’Connor for portraying Margaret Thatcher, Princess Margaret, the Queen, and Prince Charles in the third and fourth seasons of The Crown. She even joked that Josh O’Connor was a “hunkier” version of Prince Charles. The rapper then applauded the work of Viola Davis in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. She said that the movie is “one of the best pieces of work” she had watched in a long time.
Other influential people in love with The Crown
You’ll be surprised to know that Nicki Minaj is not the only celeb who follows The Crown. Earlier in November 2020, Australian rapper Iggy Azalea also tweeted about the TV series. She said that the wildest part about it was that the Queen had to carry her purse all around the house! The 30-year-old wondered how difficult it would be to move with a handbag or a pouch everywhere in such a big house. She even joked that even if the Queen had to visit her kitchen, she’d have to carry her purse along with her!
Not only people from the music industry but the royals too have been watching the series. In May 2017, Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter Princess Eugenie revealed that she’s a fan of the Netflix hit. Calling it “beautiful,” she said that it makes her feel proud. In November 2020, Mike Tindall, the Queen’s grandson-in-law, admitted that he too watches The Crown. Tindall said that he was halfway through season three and was looking forward to watching season four.
Vanessa Kirby, cast member who portrayed Princess Margaret in the first two seasons, had previously commented that the Queen herself had also seen the TV show! Kirby disclosed that a friend of hers had heard Princess Eugenie confirming that the Queen had seen the series.
