Nicki Minaj Thinks Wearing Different Color Makeup is “A Real Accomplishment”
Nicki Minaj is the cover model for the April 2013 “Elle” Magazine, where they claim to have given her a makeunder. The rapper is known for her over-the-top costumes, makeup and colorful wigs and she was photographed for the magazine looking less like a clown. But is that really a “makeunder”? In the Elle photos Nicki is wearing just as much makeup as usual, colored contacts and a long blonde weave.
So for Nicki’s “dramatic” Elle makeunder, they covered her in makeup in a more neutral tone. Hmm. That’s pretty unexciting, right? Well don’t tell that to Nicki, because she feels like this photoshoot was a real accomplishment. No, really. I’m not even kidding. According to Nicki:
“To go in front of the camera, without pink lips or big ol’ crazy lashes…you know, nothing…I felt naked. It was scary! So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes!”
If someone is going to claim that they are going to give Nicki Minaj a makeunder, I envision it to be more like Cherry from “I’m Gonna Git You Sucka”. I’m pretty sure that this is how a real Nicki Minaj makeunder would go…
Nicki Minaj has also been sounding off about the rumored plastic surgery that she has undergone and is adamantly denying having ANY plastic surgery…on her face at least. Nicki has collaborated with MAC makeup and is creating a buzz about her new makeup collection with the plastic surgery denial statements. Nicki may not have had plastic surgery above the neck, but she’s certainly not all natural. The rapper’s has had plastic surgery on her body and has had both breast and butt augmentation surgery. Check out the pictures of Nicki before and after plastic surgery here.
Regardless of Nicki’s weak “Elle” makeunder, we can appreciate Nicki’s new toned down look. The 30-year old rapper is actually quite naturally beautiful under all of those layers of makeup. Elle should have featured Nicki without any makeup at all, although it sounds like insecure Nicki would never let that happen.
