Nicki Minaj is covering the June/July issue of Teen Vogue! Check out a few photos from the magazine below, in which she speaks about her clothing line. The Nicki Minaj Collection will be available starting on October 1st.
Nicki Minaj will be covering the new issue of Elle Magazine. In the photoshoot, she’s wearing a small amount of makeup going for a more natural look. She did a skit which shows her interviewing herself for the magazine, which you can watch above.
The video also previews the Elle spread, which will be in our gallery ASAP!
Nicki and the rest of the American Idol judges grace the cover of the January issue of the Hollywood Reporter. Check out a snippet of the article below and check out the full article discussing the Nicki and Mariah feud and more at the source.
Minaj also consulted those close to her [about joining American Idol]. “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 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.’ ”
Among Minaj’s concerns: her cred in the rap world, for one. As an artist signed to Cash Money Records — home to her mentor Lil Wayne, Drake, Jay Sean and DJ Khaled and a label that has sold more than 78 million albums since its founding in 1991 — she points to “a judgmental culture in hip-hop,” where “sometimes you are afraid of being too famous because it’s almost, like, is that even cool? Being that accessible, someone you see on TV every week? I never pictured myself as that type of person. I’m still surprised that I decided to do it.”
Check out these photos of Nicki on the cover of Complex’s April issue.

Here’s a drinking game that gets the job done: Take a sip of Nicki’s drink of choice, a margarita, for every one of her recent accomplishments. Solo set at the Grammys. Super Bowl halftime show with Madonna and M.I.A. M.A.C. Cosmetics campaign. OPI’s Nicki Minaj nail polish collection. Mattel’s Nicki Minaj Barbie Doll. Pink Friday certified double-platinum. You’ll be under the table before you get past the last six months.
Nicki’s growth from mixtapes to main stage is unheard of for a female rapper. The 29-year-old Queens MC has stats that match up more with 50 Cent than Salt-N-Pepa. The speed of her rise from Young Money rookie to Fortune 500 trophy has been so fast, it can only be measured in clicks, retweets, and YouTube views.
Why does this woman—who played a dominatrix in a video with model corpses in lingerie (Kanye West’s “Monster”), and who proudly proclaims, “I’m a big deal/That’s why I get more head than a pigtail”—also have an audience of insanely devoted eight-year-olds? “I think as far as the younger demo is concerned, I play dress-up,” Minaj says. “I also can put on a very cartoonish voice. So sometimes children may not know what I’m saying, but they like the sound of it, and they think I sound like some weird character.”
Minaj remembers being fascinated with her hair when she was nine. “I was doing every- and anything to it—putting in wads of gel and brushing it to the next century, and just thinking I was so cute,” she says. “I always thought I had an eye for that stuff.” She also had a philosophy: Hair allowed you to reinvent yourself, which was perhaps particularly critical to a little girl with big dreams and a troubled reality. “I had done something I thought was really, really, really cute, and I showed my neighbor,” she says. “She was like, ‘Why’d you do that to your hair?’ And I never forget what I said: ‘I’m someone new in this hair.’ ”
Read some excerpts from the interview below and after the jump:
On reinventing herself: ”Before I started working on Roman Reloaded, I was thinking about that. And I realized it’s all such a natural transition. I am running with new looks now, but I didn’t plan on it. I’m always switching it up, so when I finally finished the tours and I came home and I relaxed, I just started feeling a certain way. And depending on my mood is when I change my hair up. So the mood that I’m in right now, it caused me to change my hair and change the style a bit too. And it just happens to coincide with the new album. But it wasn’t something that we said, ‘Hey, new album coming out we have to reinvent ourselves,’ because everyday is a reinvention.”
On our March cover, out today, Kim Kardashian is ultra natural. But our April cover, Nicki Minaj? The girl not only wears an orange wig in one shot in the magazine, she takes her always-electric style to the next level. Let’s just say that when she saw the racks of clothes at the shoot, she steered clear of anything black.
She also talked to us about her plans for world domination. (Well, practically—fragrance, a clothing line—you name it, she’s planning it.) She told writer Judith Newman, “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.’”
