Nicki Covers Wonderland Autumn 2018 Issue

Barbie. Queen. Chun-Li. Whatever you want to call her highness, it’s been eight years since Nicki Minaj’s major label debut, Pink Friday (as well as all of us poorly imitating the now-iconic lyrics to “Super Bass”). Since then, her meteoric rise has made rap history.

Totalling over 90 million followers on Instagram, plus the recent release of her fourth studio album, Queen, and her ferocious title as the woman with the most entries on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts, ever, there’s absolutely no stopping the New York hip hop maverick.

She’s given us epic bops such as “Anaconda”, “Moment 4 Life”, “Beez in the Trap”, as well as endless razor-sharp, quotable lyrics. We caught up with the most famous female rapper of all time (!) on the pressures of fame, changing the rap game, and a new romance on the scene…

Can’t wait for the issue to hit the shops? You can pre-order a copy online now.

Nicki Minaj Lands Her Vogue Cover Debut

She’s a platinum-selling rapper who has featured on many international magazines throughout her career, but Nicki Minaj has never landed a coveted Vogue cover – until now.

A fully-fledged member of rap’s fashion royalty, Nicki Minaj, who has more than 90 million followers on Instagram, has returned following a hiatus of nearly four years to drop her fourth album, Queen. Within a few hours of the album’s release, Queen had reached number one in more than 85 countries, including the UAE, Palestine, Lebanon, and Saudi Arabia. The success was met with high-profile acclaim, with Naomi Campbell and Kim Kardashian sharing their support ahead of the artist’s performance at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards on August 20.

Minaj’s return has been truly triumphant, with the star bagging the cover of Vogue Arabia’s second September issue. Model Bella Hadid was the star of the debut September 2017 cover, shot by Karl Lagerfeld.

“The fashion industry has been successfully collaborating with rap artists because they appeal to young luxury consumers and global influence. In 2018, we’re not just obsessing over their lyrics, we’re taking their style notes, too,” explains editor-in-chief Manuel Arnaut of Vogue Arabia’s 17th cover. “For us, Nicki Minaj embodies everything that makes the industry crossover a success. She’s the author and producer of most of her material, is a platinum-selling rapper, a successful businesswoman with clothing, fragrance, and beverage lines, and has appeared on Time’s 100 most influential people list. Put simply, she’s the ultimate girl boss.”

In this moment when the fashion industry discusses inclusivity, diversity, and equality, it was only fitting that the cover story was shot in New York, just a few days before the Met Gala, by an all-female team. Renowned photographer Emma Summerton was behind the lens, while the styling was done by Anna Katsanis and overseen by VogueArabia fashion director Katie Trotter. The hair and makeup looks were created by Kim Kimble and Sheika Daley respectively.

Accompanying Minaj’s cover story is an exclusive interview by Arnaut, in which the rapper talks quitting social media, healing heartbreak, and bouncing back stronger than ever to reclaim her crown.

“I think anybody who says they don’t care about horrible things being said about them or lies being spread about them are not being truthful,” says Minaj. “I’m a human being and of course it bothers me when I read lies or horrendous things about myself… I took time to create something for my fans that I knew was going to be perfection.”

Discussing her latest success and her struggle to the top, Minaj also reveals, “In the restaurant where I was a waitress, I would go to someone’s table to take the orders and before I got their bread, I’d write raps on my order notepad about what they said or what they were wearing… I always thought, I’m going to get the hell out of this joint, stop waitressing, and become a big superstar.”

The New York Times Magazine: The Passion of Nicki Minaj

The New York Times Magazine: The Passion of Nicki Minaj

Nicki is on the cover of The New York Times Magazine for October 2015. I’ve also added two new photos from session.

Nicki Minaj is the world’s biggest female hip-hop star, a top pop star and the first woman to achieve success in both genres. Like Beyoncé, who performed recently in Central Park with the words ‘‘boss’’ and ‘‘hustler’’ flashing on screens behind her, along with a grainy video in which she smashed a vacuum and a sewing machine, Minaj has become expert at modeling the ways that women can wield power in the industry. But she has also drawn attention to the ways in which power can be embodied by a woman standing up for herself and speaking her own mind. Minaj’s behavior isn’t exclusive to her tracks; she also exhibits it in the national telenovela that she, like the rest of these women, to a greater or lesser degree, is running about herself, feeding the public information about her paramours, ex-paramours, peccadilloes and beefs, all of it delivered in social media’s short, sharp bursts.

Nicki Minaj to Produce, Star in New Autobiographical TV Show


Nicki Minaj is taking her entrepreneurial skills to television, as the rapper revealed plans to executive produce and star in a scripted comedy series based on her life for ABC Family.

The as-yet-untitled series will be based on Minaj’s pre-superstar life in Queens, New York. The Nineties-set show will explore the Trinidad and Tobago-born artist’s “vibrant immigrant family and the personal and musical evolution that lead to her eventual rise to stardom,” reports Deadline.

“This is one of the more unique adventures I’ve ever embarked on,” Minaj told Deadline. “I couldn’t be more proud and excited to team up with an amazing group of people to give the world something really special.” Kate Angelo (Sex Tape, The Back-Up Plan) will be writing the series, with the show’s pilot set to be filmed in December in Queens.

THE INTERVIEW

Nicki Minaj’s eyeliner is a precision event, a marvel, as if drawn on by the kind of pre-programmed robot arm used for laparoscopic surgeries. It is a peacock navy color, dark and shiny and full, extending maybe a not-outrageous half centimeter up from the top lid, extending an additional still-not-crazy three centimeters outward past where her eyes end. Her eyelashes are even and delicate, like wisps from a dandelion, and I can’t recall if I’ve ever seen her without prosthetic versions. I have had plenty of time to search my memory, though, because here on this couch, in this room, during this interview, with me sitting next to her, Nicki Minaj has fallen asleep.
