Nicki Minaj covers the latest issue of V magazine!


Check out Nicki Minaj looking super fab on the latest cover of V magazine (issue #69). She’s exploding big time as of late and her debut album Pink Friday (which I still listen to a lot and made my top favorite albums of 2010 list) just went platinum! Expect to see and hear a lot more from Nicki in 2011, she’s totally ready to take it all the way to the top!


Nicki Minaj V magazine

The Rise and Rise of Nicki Minaj – The tough-talking, one-upping, bodacious, curvaceous Nicki Minaj is taking music to places cooler and more colorful than ever. And in the boys’ club of the 21st-century hip hop, she’s stolen every scene to become the genre’s Barbie-pink princess. Secretly, though, she’s gunning for queen.
