Her Royal Majesty Returns!
Nicki Minaj graces the cover of V Magazine for the second time — One of the greatest female hip-hop artists of all time gets beautified for her sexy photoshoot, shot by Mario Testino.
Sporting a fit red dress designed by Guess along, with her shiny red Jimmy Choo shoes, Nicki expresses her fashion sense a bit more with photos of her in Versace attire.
“What I love about Versace is that it’s so rich,” she said. “Rap is a lot of showing off, and fashion is too. Versace is like, look at me, bitch. I’m here.”
"Dear Old Nicki," it's time for the 'Heavyweights Champ' to take her royal thrown and seize this "Moment 4 Life." As she gears up for the December 15th release of her third studio album, The Pinkprint, the rap mogul is definitely keeping up with her ‘girly’ side.
“I always push the envelope, because I’m Nicki Minaj. I have to,” she said. “No matter who I’m on a song with, I feel like I have to say at least one thing that no one else is willing to say. Whether it’s Madonna, Britney, or Beyoncé, they always tell me, ‘Yes. Be yourself. Talk your sh*t.’”
The Winter 14/15 issue of V Magazine hits newsstands November 13.
In related news, Nicki Minaj is celebrating after setting a new career milestone and making history at the same damn time. The rapstress' new single, "Only," featuring Lil Wayne, Drake, and Chris Brown set the record for the most Urban radio adds in one week.
Minaj wrote on Instagram, "#ONLY just broke the record for being the most added song of the YEAR at Urban radio in a one week time frame. Thank you to all the radio PD's, my all boy crew (Weezy, Drizzy, & Breezy), and thank YOU! Video coming soon ?????????????????????? The Pinkprint 12.15.14."
Congrats to Nicki and her "boys" for the accomplishment.
