If putting out three versions of the same album, starring in her own reality show and guest judging on American Idol isn't enough Nicki Minaj for you, wait, there's more! During a recent interview with British DJ Tim Westwood, Minaj revealed that she's releasing Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded—The Re-Up to "hold her fans over" until her next album. When asked when that's supposed to drop, Nicki whispered, "2013." Though there's not a ton of info about who she's working with on the new album or when we can expect the first single, she did admit that some of the beats are already done. When does this woman sleep?

More Re-Up news: snippets of the remaining songs we haven't heard off of the album have hit the internet, and as we previously predicted when we heard "The Boys," mixtape Nicki is back! The previews posted over at Rap-Up have been taken down, but the Harajuku Barbie sounds much less pop and much more hip-hop on the new tracks—fans of Nicki's from way back should be pleasantly surprised. Also, there's a song about "a lotta boobs": "I Endorse These Strippers," featuring Tyga, the rack connoisseur. #cantwait
