After the dreadful news that Nicki Minaj fired her entire styling team with an objective of going for a more mature look, she poses for the cover of the April issue of ELLE looking….normal.
Completely shedding her traditional blonde wigs, signature Barbie pink lipstick and colorful costumes, Minaj essentially takes on a minimalist look. With an almost bare face and all black attire showing off a little cleavage, Nicki Minaj looks absolutely striking. For once we can truly see what she looks like under all the animation and makeup.
In the upcoming ELLE issue, Minaj states that her “make under” was a hug accomplishment but still takes pride in her multiple personalities. She also discusses being bullied as a young girl and offers a bit of advice to women telling them to demand what they want in life.
Check out Nicki's new look here.
I don’t know about you guys, but I love the new Nicki. I think she realized the over the top image was gimmicky and short lived. Kudos! What do you guys think of her make under?
