Nicki Minaj Goes Pink on the Set of "Starship" Music Video Shoot
Flaunting her curves on the Aloha State set, Nicki Minaj was busy putting together material for her "Starship" music video on Wednesday (March 14).
The 29-year-old hitmaker was decked out in a pink bikini, pink heels and a green hairdo as she rolled around in the sand while on location in Oahu, Hawaii.
Having arrived in the scenic island locale the previous day, Miss Minaj tweeted, "The kids @ the airport were like: waikikiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!! I bust out laughin."
She later added, "Can't wait 2get on set. Dem male modelz iz poppinton #starshipsvideo."
"Starship" is one of the songs included in her upcoming sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, which is set to be released on April 3rd.
Expecting big things from her latest effort, Nicki recently told MTV, "April 3 is gonna be a doozy. It's gonna be crazy. It's gonna be important for just hip-hop culture and pop culture. It's gonna be very big."
With her sophomore album ready to drop next month, Nicki Minaj garnered a little added attention by nabbing the cover of the April 2012 issue of Allure.
Set to hit newsstands on March 20th, the "Moment 4 Life" singer added her usual colorful ways to the Michael Thompson shot spread by donning a range of orange and pink wigs while dishing about everything from her passion for hair to a conversation she had with Jay-Z at the Victoria's Secret show.
Highlights from the interview are as follows:
On her chat with Jay-Z about world domination:
"I never thought about music as just being the end-all, be-all. I always looked at it like a business, something that I could create an empire out of. So that's why I'm only about to put out my second album and I'm already thinking about this. I had a little conversation with Jay-Z at the Victoria's Secret fashion show. He said, 'Congratulations on all your success.' And I was like, 'Yeah, I'm coming for you. I'm coming for your spot, Mr. Mogul.'"
On being fascinated with her hair when she was nine:
"I was doing every- and anything to it—putting in wads of gel and brushing it to the next century, and just thinking I was so cute. I always thought I had an eye for that stuff."
On her philosophy that hair allowed you to reinvent yourself:
"I had done something I thought was really, really, really cute, and I showed my neighbor. She was like, 'Why'd you do that to your hair?' And I never forget what I said: 'I'm someone new in this hair.'"
On how she was able to land an audience of insanely devoted eight-year-olds:
"I think as far as the younger demo is concerned, I play dress-up. I also can put on a very cartoonish voice. So sometimes children may not know what I'm saying, but they like the sound of it, and they think I sound like some weird character."
