Nicki Minaj Leaps Into Action

The Harajuku Barbie lives up to her moniker in this latest promo photo from her shoot with photographer Howard Huang. Nicki looks pretty in pink as she strikes a deadly pose, brandishing a hot magenta sword over her clementine tuft of hair as she finds her inner Zen in front of a rocky cove.

This is just one of the many looks that the versatile Young Money rapstress has tried on in the promotional pictures for her upcoming debut album Pink Friday, currently slated to hit stores November 23, with previous pics showcasing the rap Hannah Montana clutching brass knuckles as she seductively stares at the camera. But based on this picture alone, Minaj is ready to strike—and won’t be taking any prisoners.
