Our queen Nicki Minaj will soon executive produce an ABC Family original series about her life growing up in Queens, New York. Cool, right? Minaj will star as her adult self, but we have to wonder...who will young Nicki? Here are some of our picks. Flip through, then let us know: Who would do the best job?
Of all the young stars in Hollywood, Zendaya is one of our faves. Not only is she a super talent, finding herself in roles both complicated and diverse, but Z is an outspoken, progressive celebrity. We could all learn something from her, and we're sure Nicki Minaj feels the same.
Not only is Keke Palmer a kickass actress, the grrrl has a voice for days. Unfamiliar with her? Check her out on the new series Scream Queens or in her earlier work, like Nickelodeon's True Jackson, VP or the 2006 film Akeelah and the Bee. You won't be disappointed.
At this point, Willow Smith needs little introduction. It's been five years since "Whip My Hair" first landed on our radar, solidifying baby Smith's place as a quality musician and actress. She's grown into herself, a young lady full of promise and intellect and talent. She's one in a million, the kind of individual who could do Minaj justice.
In her 16 years on this earth, Amandla Stenberg has become an icon for her roles as both Cataleya in Colombiana and Rue in The Hunger Games. Beyond that, she spends her free time volunteering and working with No Kid Hungry, a children's hunger organization. Who couldn't love someone with such a good spirit?
China Anne McClaine might be one of the greatest child actors around: She can't vote yet, and she already has a repertoire worth serious envy. Starting with Tyler Perry's House of Payne before landing a lead role in her own Disney program, A.N.T. Farm, China isn't a star in the making...she's already there.
