Nicki Minaj has another reason to be celebrating right now. She recently signed a multi-million dollar deal with Pepsi to endorse the new “Pop” beverage, which is set to hit the market this summer. In the beginning of the year, Minaj flew to Argentina to film the commercial that should hit television’s worldwide late spring/early summer 2012.

Superstar Status: Justin Bieber Covers Complex Magazine

International teenage sensation Justin Bieber is gracing the cover of the 10th Anniversary of Complex magazine’s decade in print issue. On the cover, JB appears to be bruised and bloodied. Inside the issue, he talks about his pop stardom, his new album Believe, single “Boyfriend” which drops next week, love life, and much more. Below are some excerpts:

On his relationship:

There’s no way to hide the relationship completely, because then it would be unfair to us. It’s like, ‘You take this car, and I’ll take this car, and then we’ll meet up at the spot. Then, you go in this door, I’ll go in this door. We’ll end up crossing ways. You get back in this car. We’ll cross over, do a James Bond. You go through the kitchen. I’ll go through the back area. Then we’ll meet in the dressing room and see each other.’ At that point, it’s not even a relationship. You’re just hiding from everyone. That’s unfair and unhealthy, man.”

On his rapping:

I just rap for fun,” he says. “It’s nothing to take seriously. On my new album, I’m going to do a little bit of rapping.” He proceeds to spit a set of bars from “Boyfriend,” a song recorded for Believe. “Tell me what you like, dear/Tell me what you don’t/I could be your Buzz Lightyear/Fly across the globe/You don’t even need to fight, dear/You already know/I can make you shine bright/Like you’re laying in the snow/Burr.”

Complex’s 10th Anniversary Issue hits stands on April 3.

Passion For Fashion: Rundown Ray Wearing A Silver-Plated “H” Hermes Belt

Up & Coming rapper Rundown Ray was spotted making his rounds in Atlanta. The stylish New Yorker was wearing a $655 silver-plated “H” Hermes belt. When you purchase the buckle, you must buy the strap too. If you just want the strap, it is possible to purchase it without the buckle, but you cannot just purchase the buckle. Rundown Ray was also wearing a grey tee-shirt and a pair of camo pants. He is in the studio working on his debut mixtape, which he plans to release this fall 2012. The Bronx native is currently in Atlanta, focusing on his music dreams. I support his movement, like his music and believe he has a lot of potential to become successful in the music industry.
