Nicki Minaj releases more visuals where she's showing off her new look and amazing body. After hitting the music scene with eccentric outfits and a host of colorful wigs, the Young Money rapper wants to shed those collections for a more "regular woman" look.
"Towards the end of last year I just wanted to have a more natural look, and that's what I was explaining to my team," Minaj told MTV. "I knew that I was about to start doing covers of magazines and I wanted a more relatable look. I knew that I was about to launch a clothing line and I want women to know that I'm just a regular woman and I'm not some weirded-out character all the time."
Outside of magazines and TV, the American Idol judge wanted to try new things and she's really enjoying the feedback.
"I made that conscious effort to tone it down and to try new things. And when I started seeing what my hair looked like, I just fell in love," she adds: "I was just like, 'Oh my gosh where has this been all my life?' Because even my fans went crazy, I feel like the whole world went crazy. It felt like I took off this mask – it didn't feel like that to me – but to the world it's almost like, 'Oh now we see the real her.' It was weird."
