Nicki Minaj is now a three time Grammy nominee!! && although she didn’t win, she felt like she already won just by being nominated. Delivering another story of going from rags to riches…Nicki teams up with Vogue to talk fashion and explain where the idea off all the animations in her style come from. she stated..
“I was dressing in Tommy Hilfiger baggy shirts and Boss jeans, but then I met a person who dressed like a tiny lady—pantsuits, heels, lots of makeup. I thought she was larger than life. She once did my makeup—I had never seen myself made up before. I didn’t want to wash it off; I felt like I had one day to live this fantasy of being a glamour girl.”
Not only was she nominated for (Best New Artist, Best Rap Album, and Best Rap Performance), she was also named the 2011 Rising Star by Billboard magazine. According to vogue , Minaj discovered the power of costume when she dressed as Freddy Krueger for the “My Chick Bad” video with Ludacris two years ago. “It made me feel so free. It was me inside.” she said.
