SNAPSHOT:NICKI MINAJ FOR ELLE APRIL


Personally, i dont think i have seen Nicki look more pretty...she tossed aside her normal over eccentric look and rocked a nude and completely feminine look. Inside the magazine the pop-diva confesses 'When I saw myself with barely any makeup at all, it was such a… like, I’m so, so attached to my pink lipstick, it’s hard. I felt naked,” Nicki told Elle about the dramatic make-under. “It was scary! So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes.”

I must say i love this new look, and i hope this phase of Nicki has come to stay,
Photographed by Thomas Whiteside and styled by Joe Zee, the “Starships” singer flashes some cleavage on the April cover in a Tom Ford black leather jacket with bondage like strap sleeves.

Her sleek look continued in the mag with Minaj sporting modern looks like a Jeremy Scott for Adidas bathing suit, black Ferragamo leather trousers, and a bustier made of rope.
Minaj seems to be flying high -- topping music charts, judging “American Idol,” creating fembot looking perfumes, and now rocking a fresh face on the cover of Elle. What more can a girl ask for?

But life wasn’t always so sexy and fun for Nicki. Inside the magazine the rapper opens up about facing childhood bullies and catty girls that tried to bring her down. “I went through a lot of bullying early on,” she says. “Girls made my life a living hell. I’ve always put up this wall -- it was a self-defense mechanism growing up -- because I was almost expecting people to attack me. And I still have it. It’s sad.”

Now with all the drama and bullying behind her, Minaj is building her brand and ruling the world. “My goal in the beginning was to buy my mother a house,” she told the magazine.  “Now I realize, ‘Okay, if I really focus and become a key player in business, then I can build an empire.’ I’m thinking of a legacy that I can be proud of and wealth that my grandchildren can use to go to college. So world domination, in terms of providing for my family, is absolutely my goal.”
