NOT Showing Her True Colors: Nicki Minaj Goes Blue For Vogue

In her latest feature inside of Vogue magazine, Nicki Minaj decided to go blue. Literally, her entire skin is painted blue. She is also wearing a pink wig. In the issue, Minaj talks about fighting for females, her career goals outside of music, fashion/style and much more. Minaj’s sophomore album, entitled Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded will be out this spring 2012. Below are some excerpts:

On fighting for females.

“I’m fightin’ for the girls that never thought they could win.”

On her career goals outside of music.

“A huge part of me wanted to be a lawyer! I would do a really good job as a prosecutor,” she alleges.

On her fashion/style, which dates back to her high school days in Queens.

“I was dressing in Tommy Hilfiger baggy shirts and Boss jeans, but then I met a person who dressed like a tiny lady—pantsuits, heels, lots of makeup. I thought she was larger than life. She once did my makeup—I had never seen myself made up before. I didn’t want to wash it off; I felt like I had one day to live this fantasy of being a glamour girl.”
