Nicki Minaj was the lady in red Sunday night at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards.
These days, she’s best down for dishing advise to contestants as an ‘American Idol’ judge but Minaj is prepping to play the assistant to Diaz in the upcoming comedy. The movie is about a woman (Diaz) who discovers she’s “the other woman” of a cheating husband when she decides to take revenge and team up with his wife.
Nicki Minaj may have official confirm she is dating her long-time friend and hype man Safaree Samuels aka Scaff Beezy or SB. The rapper tweeted an image of herself and SB with the caption , “Lol #ourawkwardcouplepicture”.
Fans immediately began to wonder if this was her way of confirming that the two are indeed a couple.
Nicki Minaj is seemingly bare face on the April 2013 Elle magazine cover. The rapstress and ‘American Idol’ judge strips down, unveiling her more vulnerable side, to discuss her experience with bullying, being respected as a woman and world domination.
On being bullied as a little girl:
“I went through a lot of bullying early on. Girls made my life a living hell. We had come to America from a different country. My brother and I had accents. It was very tough. So I’ve always put up this wall— it was a self-defense mechanism growing up— because I was almost expecting people to attack me. And I still have it. It’s sad.”
On wearing overly dramatic and heavy makeup:
“When I saw myself with barely any makeup at, it was such a… like, I’m so, so attached to my pink lipstick, it’s hard. I feel that it’s become a part of me. To go in front of the camera, without pink lips or big ol’ crazy lashes— you know, nothing— I felt naked. It was scary! So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes.”
We’ve learned recently that Nicki Minaj allegedly fired her entire style team so she could get a more classy look. Well, whatever she did it’s working.
Onika looks beautiful and elegant in some new photo spreads she took while on a trip in Vegas. And, she enlisted to help of Oscar de la Renta, Alexander McQueen and high-red Louboutin pumps.
Nicki Minaj would like for you all to stop with all the rumors she has had plastic surgery. During a recent interview to promote her makeup line with MAC Nicki addressed all the talk about her facial “enhancements”.
Have you seen Nicki lately? In fact, we’d say she’s made a major transformation and is looking her best.
She tells Extra, “I’ve never had surgery on my face. They’ll see contour and they’ll think you had surgery on your nose, no no no, look at RuPaul’s drag race and you’ll see how you can make your nose look any shape you want.”
“When people see my makeup they think all types of crazy things that I’m doing to my skin, but it’s makeup.”
Although Nicki addressed rumors of changing her facial features, what she fails to address? Whether she’s had work done on her voluptuous figure. We’re not so sure that was just a coincidence.
Check out Nicki’s full interview with Extra.
These two remind me of ‘Toddlers & Tiaras’ – two divas who want to outshine each other and do it so dramatically. While Nicki is known for throwing tantrums, Mariah is queen of throwing subtle shade, you know, in that I’m above the drama passive-aggressive way. Just stop it! You both look silly.
While their feud, stemming from last summer, have subsided a bit it’s clear these two women do not like each other.
During an interview with Barbara Walters, which leaked online, Carey (kind of) resurrected the beef all over again. The interview was actually done not long after their big blow-out caught on video where Minaj is heard spewing profanity and insinuating Carey threw a few jabs her way over the summer. Although it wasn’t actually heard on camera Carey says Minaj threatened to shoot her. According to reports Nicki blurted out, “If I had a gun, I would shoot that f—ing bitch”.
When asked about the fight with Mariah admits she felt her safety was in jeopardy. “It felt like an unsafe work environment,” she told Walters. _______READMORE
I suppose this is a good problem to have. Nicki Minaj fears ‘American Idol’ will take away her street credibility.
She tells THR, “I had a lot of talks with people — my family, my best friends, my label, Lil Wayne, management and then the producers,” she says. In the end, it was Darnell (one of the idol producers) who helped sway her. Adds the 30-year-old: “He was so lovable and made me feel so comfortable and confident. He kept saying, ‘I promise we’re going to protect you; you’re going to love it, we’re a big family.’ ”
On becoming more famous and her street cred she says, “[there is] a judgmental culture in hip-hop,” _______READMORE
Congratulations are in order for Rihanna. The Bajan beauty and singer has finally scored her first number one album with her seventh studio album, ‘Unapologetic’. Not only did the album debut atop the UK charts it also topped the US Billboard 200 charts. The final numbers are in! ‘Unapologetic’ has sold 238,949 in its first week. The album is also the singer’s highest selling debut of her career.
Although her nearly disastrous ’777′ tour that left journalists disappointed, it was a driving promotional vehicle. The album’s controversial title and collaboration with ex Chris Brown didn’t hurt either.
That Rihanna reign certainly ain’t letting up.
