Of course Nicki Minaj‘s outtakes from her BlackBook shoot are better than most people’s best photos. Of course, right? Nicki is fun, funny and facially flawless. And obviously we can never stop talking about her butt.
These serve no purpose other than pure eye candy, so enjoy…

Well, thank God for the people at Out Magazine who finally asked the question I’ve been wanting to ask Nicki Minaj since I first heard her collab with Eminem on Pink Friday: “When Pink Friday came out last fall, a lot of people were upset about Eminem’s use of the word “faggot” on your track ‘Roman’s Revenge.’ What’s your take on it?”
I mean, THANK YOU! I can’t tell you how upset I was that Eminem isn’t done (violently) gay-bashing in his songs (even though he says he’s pro-gay marriage,) but I don’t know how Nicki, who is rumored to be bisexual and has a very large gay fan base, allowed a track to be on her album with that kind of language.
Here’s what Nicki had to say:
“You know, if I’m being honest, I didn’t like [him using it]. I spoke to everyone I knew about it. I spoke to my hairdresser, who’s one of my closest friends. I sat him down and said, “Terrence, what do you think about this? How does this make you feel?” And we had a long, long talk. And he said he didn’t feel like Eminem was talking about a gay person. He felt like it was a word being used to describe a straight man, and he didn’t take offense to it. It’s Eminem — I felt like we were creating a movie. And in the same way, I feel like if you were to watch your favorite actor or actress say “faggot” or say “nigger” in a movie, you don’t hate them because it’s like they’re playing a role. “Roman’s Revenge” was more like a theatrical piece. I was a character and [Eminem] was a character. This was Slim Shady and Roman. Of course, when it comes to creativity, there’s such a thin line between creativity and something being offensive. But one thing I knew for sure was that my gay fan base knows about how I feel about them, and I’ve embraced them from the beginning — since my mix-tape days. [Reaching out to gay fans wasn't something I did] once I came into pop culture just to try and get some extra fans. So I felt like the positive would outweigh the negative, and we just kept moving with that”
I don’t think it’s fair to say that Terrance, Nicki’s gay hairdresser, has the final words on all things gay, but I will kinda sorta accept this answer. Both rappers are very theatrical in their verses, and both utilize a whole range of characters. And the entire song is told from the perspective of “Roman,” Nicki’s most angry and vicious character, who just so happens to be gay. Or so she says.
I dunno. I’m not thrilled, but I’ll take it. Where do you guys stand on this?

Unless you’ve been living in a cave (pun kind of intended,) you’ve probably heard by now that Osama Bin Laden was finally found and killed. Just about everyone I follow on Twitter had a lot to say about the news, but perhaps the craziest/most hilarious commentary I saw was from rapper Nicki Minaj (who has since removed the Tweet from her account.)
You all know that I’m pretty much obsessed with Nicki, but I can’t figure out if think her Tweet was one of the most spot on yet completely ridiculous remarks I’ve ever seen in response to such a serious news event or pretty damn selfish. Sure, Lil Kim has talked endlessly about how she wants Nicki gone, but making a world-wise news event about yourself is pretty uncouth.
Make sure you let me know in the poll how you feel about Nicki’s Tweet and feel free to discuss last night’s events in our comment section…

There’s no doubt in my mind that the Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj tour is not to be missed, but unfortunately, I might have to miss it. Why? Because I don’t have anywhere from $99-$999 to spend on a ticket to see them.
With the way Britney’s been acting, the Femme Fatale tour may be her last big outing, but by the time taxes and surcharges are factored into the price of her tickets, she might be performing for an empty arena. When the tickets went on presale and I saw the prices of the packages available, my jaw dropped. I mean, bitch better use all that cash on a new weave.
I know that it costs a lot of money to outfit Britney in those leather bodices and sparkly unitards and I’m sure the pyro and stage production alone is like, ten dollars per seat, but who the hell has that kind of money lying around to blow on an aging pop star who can’t even dance anymore? The draw on this show seems to be Nicki, and even as a huge fan of hers, I really wouldn’t spend much more than fifty bucks to see her live. Like, does a pair of ass implants come free with with every ticket?
Are you going to try and score tickets to see Britney and Nicki’s show? Do you think the prices she’s charging are reasonable for what you’ll get, or are you sucking it up and paying just because you don’t want to miss it?

In case you haven’t heard, Nicki is joining Britney for her upcoming tour (who’s excited?!), and since the two ladies are getting somewhat tight nowadays, Britney decided to be a sweetheart and stop by a party Nicki hosted Friday night in L.A. Of course, people couldn’t handle the combined magic of Nick and Brit, and here’s the result:
A source tells us, “[It] was complete pandemonium. Six people were carried out after hyperventilating. They literally fainted when Britney walked onto the stage where Nicki was hanging.”
For those still conscious, their goal was to try and reach Britney.
“People were crowd surfing to get to the stage. Screams were so loud for Nicki and Brit you couldn’t hear the music. Bouncers couldn’t hold the crowd back.”
I just can’t imagine fainting over Britney Spears in 2011, but hey, to each her own. That being said, I’m fully prepared to admit the high potential for magic during a Nicki Minaj/Britney Spears tour. What do you guys think?

Elle Magazine‘s special music issue has three cover girls and they just so happen to be three of my favorite ladies ever: Nicki Minaj, Robyn and Gwen Stefani. Sarah showed you some of the best stuff from Gwen’s cover and interview yesterday and today I’ve got all the pics from Nicki’s issue.
What’s the difference between Kim Kardashian posing like this in a magazine and Nicki? Well, Nicki’s got a lot of other things going on, like, “a set of skills” and “a career based on her actual talent.”
But yeah, her ass is pretty powerful stuff, too.
