Nicki Minaj shared the fierce shot above on her Instagram with the caption, “Italian Vogue.” We’re taking that to mean “The Pinkprint” rapstress is going to be on the next cover. Nicki’s covered countless magazines: Elle, Vibe, Marie Claire, Allure, Billboard…usually in her bubblegum pink pop style, but this image is giving us haute couture realness and we’re here for it!
Nicki’s toned down her colorful image for a more demure and sophisticated style. Ditching the cotton candy wigs and often donning black bobs or sleek long tresses with bangs, we’re seeing a softer side of the superstar. In her latest track, “All Things Go,” Nicki opens up about losing a pregnancy and saying “I suppose” to a proposal. It’s refreshing to see this side of Nicki–she’s getting real. We’ve got to get our hands on a copy of “The Pinkprint.”
