The character that is Nicki Minja is frightening to some who think she’s a reflection of where young minds are in today’s culture. Personally, I think she’s a genius who won’t be truly appreciated until she looks like Lil’ Kim and appears in Cash Money Young Money’s 2020 remake of Gremlins.
Over on TheYBF, Nicki Minaj gave the media what the except from pint-sized MC, a cotton candy-like pink wig for the April 2012 cover of ALLURE.
The 29-year-old New Yorker donned colorful garb and spilled a little inside knowledge about her own weight loss journey, which doesn’t include bananas. Who knew?
I leave the rest of the heaving lifting on this breaking news to the woman who does it the best over at TheYBF.
Nicki Minaj is decked out in her frills, ruffles and tulle for the new ALLURE issue. The cover has been floating around for weeks in a blurry low-res format, but now the higher quality pic has been released.
The MAC Viva Glam rep revealed her usual amount of boobage and her fave pink lipstick while yacking it up about keeping off the pounds and going for Jay-Z’s spot:
On dethroning Jay-Z: “I never thought about music as just being the end-all, be-all. I always looked at it like a business, something that I could create an empire out of … I had a little conversation with Jay-Z at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show. He said, ‘Congratulations on all your success.’ And I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m coming for you. I’m coming for your spot, Mr. Mogul.’”
On exercising: “I’m naturally petite, but I definitely struggle with keeping those extra pounds off. And I hate working out. I can’t stand being on a treadmill. That mentally irks me. When I need to lose a few, I just cut out sugar and starch.”
Here are some of the other pictures from the shoot:
