At 5' 2" Minaj is a pocket rocket with an astonishing waist-to-booty ratio that has lead to rumours that her posterior has
been surgically enhanced. Her response? Hell to the N-O!
Two-tone, Day-Glo, leopard spots, candy pink, gungy green… we’ve no doubt Minaj owns an entire bungalow filled with rainbow weaves. You too can emulate her outré tresses – just head to Dalston Junction for wigs at Shaba Hair, or take the plunge at hipster hairdresser Bleach down the road.
The Pink Friday mobile app serves as the definitive dictionary of Barb lingo.
Fetch ‘Something a bitchy Harajuku Barbie really likes.’
Dolly Lama ‘A Barbie that makes
everyone around her feel at peace.’
A waffle house ‘A clearly misguided old wrinkle.’
Strawberry shortcake ‘One who loses sight of her goals and her cake [money] by focusing on beef and negativity.’
The alter egos:
Roman Zolanski A gay man from England, Roman is Minaj’s inner angst personified.
Martha Zolanski Roman’s bossy-boots mother, complete with alarmingly sketchy cockney accent.
Nicki Theresa A headscarf-wearing healer of fans.
Harajuku Barbie Minaj’s most tempered incarnation – she’s a wide-eyed innocent. Minaj also refers to her fans as ‘Barbs’.
From space-age sexpot to chaste dolly girl, latex ’n’ lace stripper to satin-clad nun, Lycra is this girl’s best friend. She may not like the comparisons to Lady Gaga, but the 29-year-old’s certainly giving the reigning queen of avant attire
a run for her column inches. Plus Vogue editrix Anna Wintour’s given her the fashion front row seal of approval.
