It’s Nicki Minaj’s Barbie world, we’re just living in it.
If there’s one thing that Nicki Minaj loves more than twerking (on top of Maybachs, with Busta Rhymes in the club, with Ciara in space stations), it’s all things pink — especially Barbie! From calling her fans “Barbz” to actually having a Mattel-produced Barbie doll in her likeness, Nicki’s a longtime resident of the Barb Zone. But according to this image, it looks like she’s just taken a quantum leap out of the Barb Zone, and into the otherwordly, rose-tinted Barb Dimension — a mystical plane where the feet are always pointed, the average woman works 4,308 jobs simultaneously, and the national anthem is “Be A Star” from Tyra Banks’ cinematic masterpiece “Life Size.”
OK, OK, so maybe we’re reading a little too much into the above photo, which Nicki Instagrammed last night. The “Get Like Me” rapper was actually just on set shooting DJ Khaled’s “I Wanna Be With You” video with Future, looking stunning as usual. Why’s she staring off into space, though? Is Ms. Minaj wistfully wondering what would have happened had she accepted Khaled’s marriage proposal? Nah, we’d sooner believe that she was pausing to review her sidekick options — like, for example, who the Skipper to her Barbie would be. (Becky G, Nicki, pick Becky G!)
