Nicki Minaj understands the value of having a good mentor -- especially when you're the center of attention. In a recent interview, Minaj called Kanye West her mentor. See what she has to say about taking advice from West... "When it came to me putting my album out, I was like 'I can't have an album without Kanye. He has to be a part of it... He's become my mentor, he gives me advice, he hits me, takes random pictures off-line and says, 'Oh this is a good picture of you," she says. "He's really into fashion so he's a good person to have a well-rounded conversation with." It's never a bad idea to bounce ideas off one of the most recognizable names in music and entertainment who knows how to bat off bad press, create long lasting music, short films, fashion lines and more... Do you have a mentor?
