Nicki Minaj Hopes to Score Vogue Cover

Nicki Minaj and Anna Wintour

Nicki Minaj has taken the fashion world by storm. But there’s one prize she still has her eye on—the cover of Vogue. The hip-hop diva’s manager is determined to get his client’s face on the front of the fashion bible.

The 29-year-old rapper, who has already graced the covers of fashion magazines including W, Elle, Cosmopolitan, and V, is working her way towards the Vogue cover. “That’s on my wish list,” her manager Cortez Bryant told The New York Times. “I hope. I hope.”

Nicki herself has referenced her desire to land the coveted cover on her debut album Pink Friday. “Ayo Anna Wintour, I’ma need that cover, baby girl,” she raps on the song “Muny.”

She is already making headway, having appeared front row at New York Fashion Week with Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. She also hired public relations firm 42 West, who represents Lady Gaga and Rihanna, among others.

Additionally, the M.A.C Cosmetics spokeswoman has plans to launch her own clothing line. Bryant is negotiating a deal with a fashion house to sell the collection. “She is all about her brand and where she wants to go,” he said.

    She already has it. Team Minaj went BANANAS on Twitter over some GREAT information they found out. All I’ll say about that is Instagram and they know EXACTLY what I’m talking about. She’ll be there VERY, VERY soon.

    People dont understand the fashion industry. Victoria Beckham hasn’t covered US Vogue yet so dont be expecting Nicki anytime soon. Rihanna got her cover AFTER 5 albums, Bey AFTER 3. To expect a cover so early on in her career is naive and shows lack of understanding and respect of the fashion industry. Plus, how many coloured females were on the cover of American Vogue in 2011?
    Iam not a hater by the way. But lets keep it 100.

    @wonderLand19,

    you speaking the truth! Like they said it;s the FASHION BIBLE… it’s not that easy to grace the cover. Especially being a woman of color in the music industry.

    Not many have done it. Only black musician to cover was Beyonce, Rihanna & Jennifer Hudson.

    Don’t believe their going to give it to her just because she wants it!

    I don’t see this happening not now but “maybe” if her career continues and she matures,nothing she wears is fashion forward or appealing,maybe teen vogue with all those excessive colors she’s attracted too,Anna may sit and chat at a fashion show with Nicki but when it comes to her Magazine her lively hood,she doesn’t play with that……even though it might bring in some money,I don’t think Ann does this for the money

    She probably will make the Cover sometime this year, she’s on the Front page of VOGUE’s Website with several others that have made the Cover.

    I don’t think she deserves it yet. If she starts being more fashionable, then yes, she can make it on the cover, but not when she turns up to the MTV Awards wearing one horrible whatever that was.

    VOGUE MIGHT 'LIKE' HER, BUUUT THEY KNOW THAT THEY SELL MAGAZINES TO A 'OLS-WHITE RICH WOMAN' DEMOGRAPHIC. THEY DONT KNOW WHO NICKI IS OR CAN RELATE TO HER.
