Singer Enya leaves Minaj tickled Pink.

Byline: GARRETH MACNAMEE

NICKI Minaj has revealed two of her songs on her new album The Pinkprint are inspired by Enya.

The Va Va Voom rapper said she hopes she can be as much of an inspiration for women as the Sail Away singer was for her.

Nicki said: "One of my biggest [musical influences] is Enya.

"There are two records early in the album where the airiness and the whimsicalness remind me of Enya, and I sort of crafted it thinking about her and the way her music makes me feel.

"I always feel it's important for me to show females they can be in charge of their own situation.

"I came into the game creating my own brand. I was doing things very early on that set me apart from people who just took orders and allowed their brand to be created for them."
