Hate her or love her, Nicki Minaj seems to be the woman of the moment. Having collaborated with the biggest names in the industry including Usher, Jay-Z and Drake, the Young Money rapper/singer is finally shining on her own with her record-breaking debut platinum album ‘Pink Friday’. Talent and celebrity friends aside, Nicki Minaj is well known for making bold and beautiful statements with her hair- her signature look being long and pink with a blunt fringe.
But don’t let the cute pink locks and sweet smile fool you, this black barbie is not a woman to be messed with. Her infamous beef with fellow female rapper MC Lil Kim has earned her plenty of headlines and inspired many of her lyrical stylings, including her cutting rap in Kanye West’s ‘Monster’ track. Similar to other female celebrities such as Beyonce who uses an alter ego ‘Sasha Fierce’, Minaj has an alter ego known as ‘Roman Zolanski’. However unlike Beyonce’s Sasha, Roman represents rage and anger from Minaj and is one of several alias’ she is prone to adopt. Nicki does however, seem to have a softer side being named the new face of Viva Glam, alongside Ricky Martin. The Viva Glam campaign is run by MAC make-up and aims to fight AIDS/HIV through product sales.
Minaj is currently supporting Britney Spears’ Femme Fatale tour around North America and with her love for experimenting, we can only imagine what Nicki Minaj’s hair will be like on stage. The crazier the better we say! She’s pulled off green tinged blonde bobs, grey streaked white-afros and multicoloured rainbow hair, whilst continuing to look utterly fabulous. But what will she do next? Only time- and maybe her stylist- will tell.
To l0ok like Nicki Minaj? Uh. . . .
