ARN: How did you come up with a stage name?
Chrissy Minajj: I came up with my stage name from mad different things but the main one was that one day in the studio I was recording the song and I needed to open the bar and this was back on my name with some weird shit and I was like yo as a joke I’m a say “Chrissy Minajj Yeah I’m back at it” and that shit just stuck because everyone started calling me that.
