Ahhhh! Today is such a big day! The cover of Nicki Minaj’s first LP has been released and I’M DYING.
You guys, I didn’t tell you this yet, but I was at the photo shoot for this album. The photographer she worked with, G.L. Wood, is a friend of a friend and I was able to get on set for the day, acting as G.L.’s life coach. I’ve been repping Nicki since 2008 and I completely idolize her, so it was obviously the best day of my life.
Nicki and G.L. make the perfect team. She wound up hiring him to shoot her album cover after they worked together on her Out Magazine profile.
The funny thing about the photo they wound up choosing is that everyone on set was sure that one of the other looks she wore would be the cover look. It was like a Gaga-meets-robot-meets-Statue of Liberty number. I’m thrilled they picked the photo they did because, yo:
I stole a piece of the dress off the floor when she went back into the dressing room to change.
I don’t think anyone would have minded. There was so much fabric everywhere that it’s not like I kept the part that’s meant to cover the person wearing it’s crotch or something.
But like, you guys… This is history right here.
Are you all equally blown away by the epicness of this cover?
