Nicki Minaj Glams It Up For Vibe

Nicki Minaj’s official Vibe cover has finally been unveiled by the magazine. The femcee is covering one of the magazine’s double covers and I believe singer Erykah Badu is covering the other. Both will hit newsstands on July 14th.

Excerpts from Nicki’s cover story, titled “Character Study,” can be found below….

“People don’t get when you’re off, or you’re having a bad day,” she says, obliquely referring to the photograph that bounced around the blogs of her hand- in-hand with Diddy, looking especially miserable. The speculation was inevitable: Had she been crying? Was she just tired? Are they doing it?

“When I grew up I saw females doing certain things, and I thought I had to do that exactly,” she says. “The female rappers of my day spoke about sex a lot . . . and I thought that to have the success they got, I would have to represent the same thing. When in fact I didn’t have to represent the same thing.”

“I’m not abandoning the funny voices. I just did a crazy tribute to ODB’s ‘Shimmy Shimmy Ya,’” she says, perfectly impersonating the late Wu-Clansman. “But it’s coming up more with the album. I had a teacher in elementary who would stand on her table and whisper. We’d all turn around like, ‘What is this lunatic doing?’ But she would achieve what she wanted. She wanted us to stop talking and listen. I feel like I need to mellow it down so people can hear what I have to say.”

  6. wow,,,I hope parents teach their young daughters to NOT idolize this person…I thought the ugly colored wigs and weaves had ran their course but ugggg,,,,they are back…please Nikki stop with the fake colored hair….it is really annoying and no one will take u serious if u continue to alter your looks!!!!! Take a look at Lil’ Kim…she looks a lot better these days, but she had to destroy her naturl beauty before she finally got a clue and figured out that having dark hair or hair with suttle highlights is also sexy….Take notes please!!!
