Nicki Minaj Gets Domestic in Dazed Magazine

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj turns fantasy into reality in the autumn/winter issue of U.K. fashion magazine Dazed.

The double covers, shot by Jeff Bark, explore the two different sides of the “Anaconda” rapper, the demure fashion obsessive and the provocative pop culture bombshell.

On one of the covers, Nicki channels a Stepford Wife in a pink tweed Chanel jacket while fixing a bologna sandwich. For the flip side, she strips down into silk La Perla undergarments and a Miu Miu coat and plastic boots while seated on a diving board.

Nicki looks sexy as ever as she takes on domestic duties around the house, cleaning the pool and whipping up a meal in the kitchen.

Nicki Minaj Performs ‘Anaconda’ at Fashion Rocks

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj unleashed a wild performance of “Anaconda” at Fashion Rocks 2014. Following an introduction from Paris Hilton and Steve Madden, the voluptuous diva shook the stage with her Sir-Mix-A-Lot sampled hit, busting out some fierce moves while wearing a diamond-studded bra and skirt.

During her racy set, the camera kept cutting to audience members including Jennifer Lopez.

“My darlingz, I wish you could’ve seen the choreography on the 2nd verse of ANACONDA last night,” said Nicki. “It was absolutely divine. CBS decided not to show it. Had they told us this before, we would have changed the choreo so that you guys could see the full performance from beginning to end. They already had you tuned in tho. Artists spend so much of their own money, time and passion to deliver their fans great performances. But ultimately, our art usually falls into the hands of people who care nothing about our art and creativity.”

Shortly before hitting the stage, Nicki announced a November 24 release date for her album The Pinkprint.
