Nicki Minaj Shows Her True Colors in Vogue

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj’s dreams of being in Vogue have come true. While she didn’t score the cover of the fashion magazine, the “Starships” rapper does appear inside the March issue.

The 29-year-old Barbie turns a shade of blue, modeling a curly pink wig, long eyelashes, and a fuchsia dress in the striking photo shot by famed photographed Steven Klein.

In the article, she shares her early career aspirations. “A huge part of me wanted to be a lawyer!” says Nicki, who is a fan of “Forensic Files” and “Judge Judy.” “I would do a really good job as a prosecutor.”

She also admits to previously spending $50,000 a month on designer shoes and bags. “Giuseppe, Versace, YSL, and Fendi shoes,” she reveals. “I bought tons of Vuitton bags. When you’re a young girl from Queens, you’re going to stock up on those bags.”

But she doesn’t want to be known as just a glamour girl and has plans to launch a foundation for young women. “The Nicki Minaj girl is a fun, artsy girl who can become a fierce force to be reckoned with on Wall Street!” she explains. “They hang on my every word, so I tell them, go to school, be ambitious. The worst position is to be financially dependent on the man.”

    @Lauryn, Your opinion became irrelevant when she served that fierce photo. Ms. Wintour would agree.

    @StarsAreBlind, But of all the better pictures she’s taken why’d they choose such a bad one? The colors are all wrong – borderline garish! Were they TRYING to make her look tacky?

    she might say some off the wall shit most ofthe time but i really like how she preaches for people to go to school i mean almost every interview she always saying no matter how old you get dont give up on your dreams just get your education first

    I think personally nicki is getting her principles wrong, obviously vogue is great and probably lets say a big magazine, but in actual reality this just depicts nicki minaj taking any crap that comes her way. Am sorry, years after when she looks back at today, she would realise, oh what a wrong decision.

    This designers are always experimental but she should be able to turn down some of their unbelievably ridiculous experiments, in recent months nicki may i say you have been a subject of wrong fashion. You can do better, your talent is enormous, you possess the power, utilise it better.

    Yeah…dressing up in weird costumes doesn’t make you artsy Nicki, but kudos to what you are planning on doing for women. You are right they do hang on to your every word might as well use that in a positive way

    People are entitled to make whatever career choices they want. If Nicki wants to create pop or hip hop music thats her choice, not WACK HATERs or even the fans. If VOgue wants her for their magazinethen fine, Some y’all need to get the fuck over it. #GET-A-LIFE-FAST.

    Question.. why is Nicki always calling someone a nappy headed hoe when we have YET seen her real hair? Just a thought

  34. xcluiiminaj

    all of you saying she sold out if you knew anything about her come up and career you would know that she has always been like this and was only marketed as a hood chick because of fendi. her and fendi got into many arguements because he basically gave her no control over her image. this is nicki minaj. the real nicki. childhood friends and family members even an elementary school teacher has said she has ALWAYS been like this. it’s not a gimmick.
