Rapper Nicki Minaj graces the cover of Elle Magazine’s upcoming music issue. Minaj looks absolutely stunning in a white fringe dress in the black and white photo. Fans eager to get their hands on the issue featuring Minaj’s Elle cover won’t have to wait long: it hits news stands next Tuesday.
Nicki Minaj looks sublime on the Elle cover, wearing a mini-dress created by designer Mark Fast. To be fair, Minaj is quickly becoming a true fashion icon–so virtually anything she wears looks fantastic. This shot, however, is beyond amazing.
Minaj is also interviewed in the magazine, which includes pieces on several other notable women in the music industry. Among them are Stevie Nicks, Gwen Stefani, Willow Smith, and Rihanna. Very good company, Ms. Minaj! She tells Elle that she “always wanted to play with the boys,” adding, “I didn’t want to be a pawn in their game or have a sidekick role. I wanted to be more of a lead character–a superhero.”
Nicki Minaj is quickly accomplishing that goal. Minaj is a force to be reckoned with in the industry and with her talents, she’ll likely reach “superhero” status soon, if she hasn’t already.
Summary: Nicki Minaj: On being a rapper: “I always wanted to play with the boys. I didn’t want to be a pawn in their game or have a sidekick role. I wanted to be more of a lead character – a superhero.”
