Great deals on musical instruments

Nicki Minaj has "toned down" her music.

The 26-year-old star - who includes the words "bh" and "*" on her debut album 'Pink Friday' - says her demos were far racier than her current music because she doesn't feel the need to be rude anymore.

She said: "If you listen to my album, compared to my early mixtapes, a lot has changed. I mean, I really toned down the sexual stuff.

"There was no need for me to do it. I feel like in the past females have kinda relied on that because they feel like that's all they have to offer."

The rapper initially felt like she had to talk dirty on her album because she was told to and felt "young and impressionable".

She added to NME magazine: "I felt like this was what I was supposed to do.

"I was around people who were telling me, 'This is what you should be doing.'

"You know, when you're young and impressionable you feel like, 'OK, you know best,' then you get a bit older and you're like, 'Hold on, you don't know best and I'm gonna control this thing from now on.' "
