Nicki Minaj officially has the cosmetics market on lock. The YMCMB rapper has already collaborated with OPI on a nail polish line and teamed up with MAC for their Viva Glam campaign, but this month, she really put her stamp — and scent — on things, with her brand-new Pink Friday fragrance, which she has been dreaming up for about two years already.
Sporting a blonde wig and neon pink blazer, Minaj made a splash in New York City on Monday (September 24), where she followed up an appearance on "The View" with a visit to Macy's Herald Square location, signing autographs for her legion of faithful Barbz who had come out to show their support.
Pink Friday, a blend of sweet florals, vanilla and musk is packaged in a bottle crafted in the likeness of Nicki, and she couldn't be happier with the final product.
"I've been thinking about [a fragrance] for like, the last two years actually; I knew I was going to call it Pink Friday," Minaj told MTV News, adding that the final details came together in recent months. "I didn't know I would have a pink wig on the bottle until I met with the fragrance company and they asked me what I wanted my bottle to look like and I said — is there any way we can put a pink wig on it?"
"They said, 'You know what? Let's try,' " she explained. "And they came back with sketches and I was floored that they actually nailed it, I couldn't stop looking at the sketches."
In addition to the signature pink wig and matching baby pink lipstick, the white and gold bottle also features a custom gold 'Nicki Minaj' nameplate necklace for added flare. "When I saw the actual picture and it began coming to life, I was like 'wow,' " Nicki added. "My fans are going to spaz out when they see this."
Nicki's Pink Friday fragrance is just her latest foray into the world of cosmetics. Earlier this year, she debuted an off-the-wall nail polish collection for OPI, which included selections like "Did It On 'Em" (named after her song of the same title from Pink Friday) and she also joined Ricky Martin as a spokesperson for Mac Cosmetics' Viva Glam campaign.
Minaj's Pink Friday fragrance is available for purchase at Macy's.
