“Pink Friday” Diary Entries

Pink Friday Diaries: “Did it on’em”: This track follows Roman’s Revenge on the album and is a ball of cocky arrogant diva bitchy insanity! Sometimes u just wanna “SHIT on’em” lol. This arrogance comes only when u mix the cute ghetto girl with the queen of England. Lol. Preorder Pink Friday on iTunes.

Pink Friday Diaries: FLY is one of my absolute faves. I wanted to work with Rihanna for a long time. I’m very proud of her accomplishments ; especially since she was born on an island like me :). This song is a female empowerment song. But then again, its not specific to just women. It speaks about flying, soaring high… in the face of every single solitary adversity that comes your way. I speak about how the media has attempted to box me in and how that has made me feel suffocated. After years of being dragged thru the mud, I’ve mustered up the courage to re-define myself. I believe that I represent an entire generation. My fans have become my family ; and together we have become a movement. Get ready for it. We came to win. Pink Friday – iTunes Preorder Available Now.

Pink Friday Diaries
: Save Me : This song feels like a soundtrack to a movie. It paints a vivid picture of a girl who has it all but still feels very much alone. She’s turned into a monster and pushed the one person who truly loved her away. She drives hundreds of miles, falls to her face sobbing, and begs him to save her. Preorder Pink Friday on iTunes now.

“pink friday” diaries debut on facebook

Pink Friday Diaries kicks off today. A daily song by song countdown:

“I’m the best” is the intro to my album. It chronicles my journey from underground rapper to border-line mainstream artist. It speaks about the doubters in my life and it speaks about overcoming every challenge I was ever faced with. It’s a toast to t…he girls who’ve gone hard. Who’ve been told they’d never make it. It’s also the only song where I speak about my family and childhood. Though hard to speak about at times, it’s necessary for my healing process. #itsPinkFridayHoe 😉 Preorder now on iTunes.

nicki minaj gets ‘revenge’ with eminem

Roman Zolanski is about to meet Slim Shady. The alter-egos of rap’s most formidable forces will go head-to-head on a track for Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday.

Rap-Up.com has exclusively learned that Young Money’s First Lady and Eminem have recorded a song called “Roman’s Revenge,” which will be included on Nicki’s debut album, due November 22.

Fans can expect more heavy-hitters on the highly-anticipated project, in addition to Em, who trades bars with Nicki’s colorful alter-ego Roman. During a Ustream session earlier this week, she revealed that Drake would also make an appearance on the album, calling their collaboration one of her favorites.

Pink Friday has already spawned the singles “Your Love,” “Right Thru Me,” and “Check It Out” with will.i.am. Find out what other songs made the final cut when the tracklisting hits iTunes this weekend.

‘pink friday’ photographer explains artwork + missing arms

As one of the music industry’s most polarizing artists, it’s only right Nicki Minaj have an unorthodox album cover to match a kooky image. Fans and critics were left both impressed and confused after viewing the 25-year-old’s femcee’s album art for Pink Friday last Monday. Taking a minimalist approach, Minaj looked like a Tim Burton special, flaunting spider-like stems, mime expression, and… no arms.

“[Nicki] wanted to rip her arms off to really do the whole Barbie theme, like when little girls trash their dolls,” says photographer GL Wood. “She wanted to look like one of those broken Barbies.”

Mission accomplished. Woods, who took similar shots of Minaj in the October issue of Out magazine says the rapper was inspired by their original shoot and wanted to go in the same direction but crazier.

nicki minaj talks album cover, uk release date

With two Billboard records under her belt, Rolling Stone and Out covers and a new album on the way, Nicki Minaj still keeps it hood. The femcee took it back to the people last night (October 7) and answered fans’ burning questions via Twitter.

No stranger to the 140 character world (or responding to her fans directly), Nicki routinely answers questions from her over 1.4 million followers arbitrarily. Last night the questions became a little more personal, and Nicki Minaj gladly obliged.

The semi-formal Q&A announcement arrived on Twitter around 8pm EST, when Nicki tweeted that Young Money affiliate Scaff Beezy needed 27 more followers to break the 13,000 mark. If he reached that number, Minaj promised a tell-all session with her fans and Scaff Beezy actually reached 13,145 followers.

The questions began pretty basic, as @CollegeBarbz asked “When can we expect the ‘Right Thru Me’ video”, to which Minaj replied “Gonna see the rough draft tonight.” The album questions included inquiries about a UK release date (November 23 per her label), along with the album cover being revealed shortly, as the Nickster just chose her album art.

Then fans dug a little bit deeper, as @Nicki_Support asked “Who was your childhood crush?” The response was both personal and sad, as Nicki responded, “Had a boyfriend named Khatif when I was 10, but he died. R.I.P. baby.”

On a happier note, @TeamMinajJapan asked, “Does your mother call you Onika or a family nickname?” Nicki tweeted “My parents have called me Nicki all my life.” The final question answered was @KaitlynMorris’ “Ever had any pets?” Per Nicki, she had a “really cute mutt” named Rocky.

Following the Q&A session, Nicki began retweeting fans’ compliments and well wishes, along with the promise that her true fans won’t be disappointed by the realness of her upcoming LP Pink Friday, particularly the intro. The last time she poured her heart out on wax was on the touching track “Autobiography” from her Sucka Free mixtape.

“It’s funny,” Nicki Minaj tweeted. “To so many people I’m the ‘new’ girl. But there are people who’ve been a part of my journey for the last three years. That’s why I do what I do.”

possible rihanna featured track on “pink friday?”

Two of the baddest chicks in the game may be making more noise with another collaboration. Rihanna has revealed that she and Nick Minaj are cooking something up for the hip-hop vixen’s Pink Friday debut.

It was previously noted that the femme fatales had worked on a track called “Raining Men” for RiRi’s fifth album Loud, but the two might have something else up their sleeves. “Nicki Minaj, we did a song together called ‘Raining Men,’ and we might be working on her album together also,” the Bajan babe tells London’s 95.8 Capital FM.

She also shares what her boyfriend Matt Kemp thinks of the “fearless, bold, and expressive” Loud. “For the most part, he actually loves everything on the album but ‘Who’s That Chick,’ he doesn’t really like that one,” she laughs. “I guess it’s too lightweight pop for him.”

However, the L.A. Dodger is a fan of the LP’s slower cuts. “He really likes the ballads on the album. Those are his favorite ones.”

Most of the tracks are uptempo except for two powerful ballads called “Scared of Beautiful” and her personal favorite “California King (Bed),” which she predicts will be the biggest song off the project.

Rihanna hopes to go on tour again next year and is already thinking about a repackaging of Loud.
