There’s so much going on in the world of Nicki Minaj, we can barely keep up! Over the weekend, Barbz was in NYC doing a Jeremy Scott x adidas campaign shoot, and today she landed in London with some big beauty news under her belt—WWD announced that Nicki officially signed a deal with Give Back Brands LLC to release her first-ever signature scent this fall! “I have always been a huge fan of great fragrances,” she said. “This is yet another extension of my creative expression. I designed the scent and bottle with my Barbz in mind.” Oooh! Three guesses as to what color the bottle is going to be. *cough* PINK *cough* This is the same company that released Justin Bieber’s Someday perfume last year, which ranked as the number one women’s launch of 2011. We have high hopes for Ms. Minaj, but, um, can we take a hot second to discuss what else is goin’ on with Nicki Minaj today? Mainly, that furry hot pink hoodie she’s wearing. Is it just us, or does this whole ensemble look strikingly familiar?
Ohhh, now we remember. Earlier this month Nicki wore ANOTHER hot pink furry hoodie (because everyone needs TWO pink furry hoodies in their wardrobe), but it had a bear face on the hood unlike this one. Honestly, though, the two ensembles are eerily similar—she wore a long, blonde wig, bright pink lips, her signature hoodie, a cartoon-y graphic tee, and printed leggings both times. We have to say, though, that those moon boots are out of the world (heh) paired with her starry-print pants. Also, guys, is it winter? *runs to nearest window* We would be mega-sweating in this ensemble right about now with all those layers. WHEW. So, tell us, what do you think about Nicki’s big news?
