Italian fashion designer has Roberto Cavalli has named Nicki Minaj the face of his Spring/Summer 2015 campaign. For the line’s new ad, the Queen gracefully showcases some of the upcoming wear.
“I chose Nicki Minaj because she embodies the exuberant and modern femininity of the Cavalli woman. In recent years we have become accustomed to women castigated in clothes that hide their body shapes. With this campaign, I wanted to send a strong countertrend message. I wanted a sensual woman who is aware of her body, who is not afraid to show her curves, rather she make them as a strength”. – Roberto Cavalli
Playing a dominatrix, Nicki Minaj has her way with her male slaves in her new video featuring, Lil Wayne, Drake and Chris Brown. Nicki’s album The Pinkprint drops Tuesday. Let us know what you think!
Recently Nicki Minaj released her lyrical video, for her new single, “Only.” The animated clip featured Nicki as a militant dictator, resembling Adolf Hitler. Yesterday, the ADL released a statement saying they were deeply disturbed by the imagery. Earlier today, Nicki addressed anti-semantic claims and explained the inspiration behind the video.
The artist who made the lyric video for “Only” was influenced by a cartoon on Cartoon Network called “Metalocalypse” & Sin City. Both the producer, & person in charge of over seeing the lyric video (one of my best friends & videographer: A. Loucas), happen to be Jewish. I didn’t come up w/the concept, but I’m very sorry & take full responsibility if it has offended anyone. I’d never condone Nazism in my art.
Ladies what do you do when you break-up? You gather up the illest emcees in the game and make a dope track! Listen to Nicki Minaj kill it on, “Only” featuring Drake, Lil Wayne and Chris Brown. Her album, The Pink Print is now due to drop on December 15th, but thanks to this track, we don’t mind. Let us know what you think!
You heard it from Nicki herself, “I swear this is my favorite song, I’m serious.” After a long wait August Alsina releases highly anticipated visuals co-starring Nicki Minaj. Check them out, the real ones always stick! Of course a few dozen roses help!
