Check out the first look at Nicki Minaj‘s recent Kmart collection design meeting for her colorful clothing line ‘The Nicki Minaj Collection’ – which ‘reflects her strong creative talent, expressive personality, and distinctive individual style.’
The Nicki Minaj Collection will include items like “leggings, slimming dresses, bomber jackets, bright outerwear, funky accessories, and much more.”
“Teaming up with Kmart and Shopyourway.com is gong to give me a way to have my fans dress like me for an affordable price,” the Trini born rapper said in a recent press conference. “It’s going to be rich stuff, quality stuff – my big thing is that it cannot look cheezy and cheap and that’s what I want to give my beautiful Barbz.”
Few hours after Mariah Carey announced her exit from American Idol, Nicki Minaj took to twitter and shared that she too wasn’t coming back for a second season on the FOX singing competition show.
“Thank you American Idol for a life changing experience! Wouldn’t trade it for the world! Time to focus on the Music!!! Mmmuuuaahhh!!!,” the trini-born rapper tweeted.
Earlier this month, long time judge Randy Jackson announced his departure from the show, leaving only Keith Urban who has yet to confirm whether he’ll return for a second season.
And what about Ryan Seacrest? Is he… or isn’t he returning to Idol?!
Iggy Azalea recently took to twitter to deny dissing Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded album.
During a recent interview, the Australian rapper was quoted as saying Nicki’s album was ”very rigid” and it wasn’t “dynamic” enough.
In a series of tweets, Iggy clarified her comments:
“FYI. i never critized nicki minajs album, “digital spy” and Robert Copsey can kiss my pretty white asshole for trying to pull that shit,” Iggy tweeted. “i specifically said that nothing was meant in a negative way and that i LIKED and was a fan of the album, but of course, of course… that gets left out. All i said was that i think you can tell the difference between “commercial” or “pop” sounding songs and then “really rap” sounding ones.and that i think there is a huge difference in the two sounds for her. i never said either was bad or that it was a bad thing.” More >

Nicki Minaj is featured on the 2013 June/July issue of teen VOGUE. Here’s the ‘American Idol’ judge had to share.
On the music industry being a lot like high school: “People treat this business like it’s high school,” she tells Teen Vogue. “It can absolutely feel like one big popularity contest, and you know what? I can’t be bothered. I can’t allow myself to play ridiculous games with grown adults in the industry. I can’t be nice to someone just because they’re hot right now. I can’t do it.”
On changing schools a lot growing up: “Every time my parents fought, my mother would have us move and I would have to go to a new school, which meant I’d have to face the task of making new friends. I dreaded it. I had butterflies in my stomach each time: Are people going to like or hate me? … Sometimes there’d be a fight, sometimes not. I let people know I wasn’t going to be pushed around.”
On getting discovered on MySpace: “My journey to who I am today began on MySpace,” she says. “I love getting real opinions from people.”
On not dwelling on people’s negative opinion: “I used to read the bad things people said about me,” says Minaj, a regular on Twitter. “Then I asked myself, ‘Why am I reading that when I have millions of people saying great things?’ You cannot give negativity power. I tell teens, if you’re having a problem, there’s nothing wrong with deleting your social media. If people keep taunting you and you keep reading it, it’s poison.”
