Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj is masterminding her huge rap comeback. In addition to sending new tracks to select bloggers and music critics last week, Nicki took to Instagram.com and announced she will drop 2 new tracks, entitled “Barbie Tingz” and “Chun-Li,” at 10am Pacific Standard Time on Thursday, April 12.

The 35-year-old Trinidadian-born rapper was spotted sitting courtside at the Los Angeles Lakers vs Houston Rockets game at the Staples Center in L.A. on Tuesday.

Nicki looked great in a studded black vinyl and PVC Dominatrix-style outfit. She wore her blonde natural hair in an upswept afro puff.

Nicki also shared the covers for the singles on Instagram.com. The “Barbie Tingz” picture showing her wearing a Renaissance-style dress while standing with similarly-attired women in creepy masks.

The “Chun-Li” cover, showed Nicki wearing a Fendi fur jacket and matching thong, while sitting with her legs astride a chair.

Nicki’s crown was knocked askew by one-hit rapper Cardi B, who soared to fame with her summer anthem “Bodak Yellow”. But “Bodak” was apparently a fluke, and Cardi has failed to deliver another solo #1 hit.

That leaves the door open for Nicki to retake her seat on the throne.

  • ?Sugar&Spice?

    While I like the artwork of the singles’ covers, her hair and outfit spell desperate and afraid. There’s really no need to be, because her competition is weak as hell.

  • CaramelDrop

    So does the dominatrix fit to tell she’s taking control? Sure hope so because the lessers came for her neck.

    That Fendi jacket and thong??

    Idk Auntie? Cardi may have something with Bickenhead, Thru Your Ph and I Do – I scrubbed the ish out of my baseboards today with those three on repeat??

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    This at a basketball game … Cut the shyt nah … ????? chile keep the music no thanks… ? sweet jeebus this tickled me.. . Bet she think she sharb ….. Chile what is going on ?

  • Rayne

    She wearing all of that at a basketball ? game. Welp ok ????

  • Logan Roberts

    Nicki was knocked off her crown by who & when? I like her but why did you wear that outfit to a basketball game?

  • TMW

    Guess she’s trying to knock back those pregnancy rumors HARD. That’s all I got.

  • CaramelDrop

    Lot of embellishments in this post:
    “35 y/o” and “looked great in a studded black vinyl and PVC Dominatrix-style outfit“ and “her blonde natural hair” and “knocked her crown askew”?
    Nicki is no less than 38; that dominatrix fit is a fail, ain’t Nathan natural about that hair and although Cardi is ok with me, but she has no less than 7 years of work and platinum sales to touch that crown…. it’s like comparing brand to off brand – you can season it up but it just doesn’t taste the same.?????

    I just did a check up. From the neck up.

  • http://tidal.com/#!/us/store/album/84712684 Django the God

    Them Barbies tings jawlines looking strong. And them shoulders looking broad.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Was Nikki a stripper in another life? or she just dresses that way?

  • i troll it like i see it

    Nice to see someone this high profile wearing natural hair texture even if it’s a wig. Good representation, even if it’s on a strumpet.

  • TMW

    See where you’re going with this. Zoomed in on the hands and the throat area myself.

  • TMW

    Strumpet. LOL!

  • http://tidal.com/#!/us/store/album/84712684 Django the God

    At first I thought the mask were a plastic surgery euphemism–specifically.

    Guap guap…get some chicken..pop that pu$$y onthe stove????? Girl i was cleaning and twerking with my mop to this on Sunday. Her album aint too bad. I actually like it and im too old to be listening to this stuff but its been playing in my car and my house

    My sister caught her dude this past wknd with inappropriate texts she said thru your phone played all weekend in her house

    And i do is my fav song. I love sza

    Cardi has a song for every situation in a womans life

  • Joy King

    Nicki has always given me the vibe of being an evil, spiteful person, so I’ve never checked for her music. But seeing this pic of her at the game and the Fendi cover, screams desperate, lost and I’m on the decline. I actually feel sorry for her.

  • Applebum

    That outfit is stupid for a basketball game. Lol. I honestly think that if Nicki had it her way, she would have dropped her singles or albums same day as Cardi’s. She likes competition it seems.

  • tintin

    As i said on twitter and bossip she better not say lebrons name or n!ggas being her son on any of these tracks. She needs to come fresh

  • deanya

    Remy is the reason Nicki alil washed. Don’t try to give cardi credit for somebody else work lol .

  • deanya

    Remy 2016 lol after that Nicki dropped 3 tracks that all flopped. Sandra is just using cardi name for clicks

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    She went where with that on??

  • Kemi

    Lol Nicki smh… this outfit is self-promotion for the new tracks dropping tomorrow. For publicity!!!! Too funny

  • Guest©

    I thought it was just me because this look is atrocious.

  • stevetheque

    Cardi is hardly a fluke her album went gold within a day of dropping

  • Guest©

    You know she will though.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    …but that was due to ONE hit single.

  • deanya

    Still counts lol

  • Logan Roberts

    Still who & what? ?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Songs better be hot. People don’t care about bars any more so the beat better knock.

    Personally, I would like some competition. I’m rather bored with the current music.

  • deanya

    Lol Google shether . I mean if you don’t remember that body then u missed a crazy moment in hiphop

  • Soda

    That leaves the door open for Nicki to retake her seat on the throne.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    chile a fool … ??

  • Rere

    I’m ready for shyt talking Nicki ??

  • Logan Roberts

    Lol. I remember, just wasn’t impressed. I like Nicki & how she can get on a song with guys and hold her own. Even if she might not write the rap, but she delivers them.

  • SumthinSweeter

    ha!

  • morenYAHdelsur

    That’s not her hair, looking at that hairline. And why can’t there be more than one female rapper? Why Cardi gotta be askewing Nicki’s crown?

  • SumthinSweeter

    Ummmm, a pleather dominatrix leoatard at a b-ball game is a little much. But ugh, do u hun.

  • RICHIE_RICH

    It’s room for both of them. And Cardi is far from a fluke. Cardi has a #1 Nicki don’t. I’m ready for Nicki doe!! Bish better bring that fire???

  • Shira Harding-James

    I mean is it really a comeback though…she never really went anywhere ?????

    OAN: is she gaining weight? Looks good

  • PlayerP

    Back to the costumes I see…

  • Dahl

    Her “natural”hair, huh? Eh, I no longer care about her…

  • deanya

    Lol people always forget Nicki was all about gimmicks when she 1st came out

  • Coy little wink

    Who is that in the fendi jacket…Chinese kitty? And that hairline…misconduct

  • deanya

    Also she Went Gold off 1 track that’s fucking crazy lol that can’t even be a diss

  • MsPam

    Who/What is that in above pictures?!??????

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    ?? ridiculous

  • ShadesofEMPRESS

    I can’t believe she stepped out with that on.

  • stav

    Disgustingly thirsty!

  • tia

    Nicki has picked up a ‘lil weight. That face is nice and full.

  • MRiGOThim

    I mean she graduated from a theater arts school…

  • CaramelDrop

    Yes! Everything u mentioned is why (I hate to admit) Cardi is growing on me. She’s being herself and speaking her truth which makes her relatable. She may have some longevity. Well maybe as long as this “ratchet culture” is in style.
    After Sza sings the chorus I do what I like” I add NICCA – I think my old man took it personal lol!

  • Stationarity

    I don’t understand why people act like only one female rapper can be hot at one time.

  • CaramelDrop

    Ikr!! If there was a super hero prostitute – THAT is what she looks like in my head.

  • Michelle

    That’s a lace front wig not her “natural blonde hair”….. but she looks great though

  • BlackMenHATEBlackWomen

    I wonder if her brother beats his meat to Icky’s photos. He seems like the type and she seems like the type to send him pics.

  • FukkFolks2018
  • tintin

    ?????

  • Allihave2say

    Nikki wore that foolishness to a basketball game and not a brothel?
    That’s her natural hair? When did humans start growing hay for hair?
    Icki is pregnant! They tried to airbrush her belly down in the Fendi fit but the distance is still too great.

  • Allihave2say

    They’re both sexual deviants. I’m willing to bet she was a victim. Might be why she presents herself like she does.

  • Allihave2say

    Preggers

  • Well$$Well$$?

    A trench coat, a leotard, heels and I guess fishnet biker shorts. ? I don’t get Nicki’s outfit..

  • FukkFolks2018

    Well she never claimed she didn’t idolize EJ.

    She said she not biting Kim. She doesn’t want to be Kim. Stop comparing her to Kim.

    But here we are. Second album cover where she is doing what?

    Dressed or posed (last one) like.. Kim

  • tia

    Wow….

  • ebonics
  • more

    damn!

  • Nonya Bizness

    How th did she get a normal nose on the cover of her album when it’s normally so pinched and pulled it looks like she can’t breathe? It doesn’t look normal in the black outfit with bottoms that look like Lipo Post Op Garments.IDK who that is on the cover but it’s not her.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Because it’s so blatant I’m starting to wonder if this is done on purpose to mock her or rub it in her face or to keep ppl talking.

  • Vonn

    She would wear Kim’s skin as a sweater if she could. Imma try to create a meme with EJ’s head on that pic of minaj. EJ wore it better.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Nikki looks like a dominatrix except she’s missing her whip.

  • Quitedeliteful

  • Quitedeliteful

    That outfit is crazy! I can see that for the stage but a basketball game???

  • Blessed

    ?What?? The fact that you would even think of something so disturbing, and so disgusting, says more about you than anything else?

    And that coupled with your screen name,..disturbing smh.

  • OrishasandMyAncestors

    She need to quit lying about her age.

  • the guest

    Nikki Minaj is brilliant in her own right AND since her last album she became rap legend Nas’ girlfriend. I hope they collaborated. I hope the Barbie Tingz single has a caribbean flavor. She’s bold enough to pull off anything she wears.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    OT: Is anybody watching Empire? It finally got Very Good this season IMO. So over-the-top and TP and Terrence giving some good acting.

  • MyaCompton

    So is your life!!! Lol!!! Foh!! So is Cardi B but y’all act like that lil hood booger really doing or rapping about ish that’s sooo different or inspiring!! Not!!!! The industry ain’t do sht but reinvent a younger version of Nicki Minaj …the industry always looking for replacements!!! Note that!! Mainstream music has almost zero originality or talent these days…knockoffz everywhere!!! That okurrrr that cardi do Nicki was already doing that silly sht!! The long ankle weave cardi jocked that off nik too…Nicki to me is more unique even if she did mock Kim she did a better job n that’s y you mad!! Lol

    B@#$. Mosey your ass back on over to MTO comments section.

    This was somewhere else. I posted it here bc it pertains to the subject. I dont like Kim’s self hating ass either for the record so Fukk you and have a nice day

  • Junkanoo

    She must think she looks good in it it definetely reads stage outfit not hanging out enjoying a basketball game how can you relax in that get up

  • KISSmyENTIREass

    how can you be a one hit wonder when you had 5 hits? Didn’t this site hate Nicki a year ago?

  • CaramelDrop

    Shut up h0.

  • SpillyNillie

    For once I actually like her fit…but not at a basketball game…that’s all I got

  • AmericanDream

    Cardi B should’ve never been compared to Nicki who , hate her or like her, has the platinum albums and singles to show for her career. Cardi B’s fame isn’t different from someone getting their 15 minutes because of a viral video

    Honestly I think cardi’s career is dead upon arrival . You don’t get pregnant while you haven’t even finished the promotional tour of your debut album yet.At this point the question isn’t if but when her record label drops her ass .Will she go back to stripping or is she going to try to live off of hoodlum baby daddy child support checks . The plot thickens

  • BeUtFullSoul

    I just want to Know WHY that outFIT to the GAME?!?!

  • imright

    shes baaaacccckkkk ???

  • imright

    she felt like it ?????

  • iWasteTime

    Stop comparing Nicki to Cardi. It is toooo early for that.
    Let Cardi get to the place in her career where there can be an comparison. Geez.
    Y’all already gave Nicki crown away, what is that Queen doing musically?
    Did y’all notice she congratulated Cardi on the baby but not the album, publicaly.

  • Soda

    All that anger in your reply but she’s mad? The audacity.

  • Smoke

    Exactly!!! I’ve tried listening to her but it jus seems bubble gum to me….no hate cus the masses seem to adore her but when ya cut ur teeth on lyrics like BDP Public Enemy Mc Lyte etc etc it’s just not appealing to me….I love her natural hair tho

  • Sushi

    I agree with all you said, but the fact that LIL Kim was more original….. Her style, her dress and her lyrics.

  • Rodmilla De Ghent

    all these niggas is my sons is iconic af though lol

  • Smoke

    I’m LOVING HER OUTFIT….jus don’t think it was fitting for a b ball game….dats jus me….

  • Smoke

    Tumble weave!!!!! ????

  • Smoke

    How many of YOUR bills has she paid…. I’ll wait…hahaha

  • Kiss

    ??? funny Nick hair is long and thin.Nicki is wearing a wig. Not all wigs are straight and silky.

  • Libra80sBaby

    So…this what should be worn to a basketball game????

  • Smoke

    I try my best not to read what that non factor has to say…and like u said the screen name says it all….

  • Simone

    Nicki jacked Kim and she didn’t do a better job. Next!

  • Ni Ni

    This witch as confused as the rest of her family. How they let her sit there in all that foolishness. They better allow the hookers, strippers, and instagram models in games with their getup too or it’s gonna be some lawsuits.

  • Dowoop

    Tehehehehe

  • Blessed

    Just straight up disgusting. I’m sensing mental illness with that one.

  • Kanyade

    this aint Highlander, is it? there “can” be more than one experiencing ‘the quickening” (i.e. success). both women can get their “reign” on.

  • Kanyade

    but was that her doing or her p.r. who are probably a bunch of males afraid to allow their artist to come as she are and be herself.

    too many stories out there of women artists having to fight to reinvent themselves or just plain BE themselves.

    i give Nicki some benefit of the doubt as far as the whole Lil’Kim duplication/diss stuff goes. some benefit. just a bit.

    just playing devil’s advocate…

  • Kanyade

    saw this meme on instagram. Fendi is loved by the hip hop community…and beyond.

    the two pics compared, Lil’ Kim’s pic is more high fashion, IMO. and she isn’t even “posing” really.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    AND MY question is STILL WHY?

  • Smoke

    And she gives about jus as many fuxks about u…haha ur funny

  • Quitedeliteful

    Right??? She got her arse and her poom-poom all on display!!! smh…

  • Kemi

    Where kids are present…she’s a mess. Like her but this is too much!

  • mona q

    All I know is I’m not a Cardi B fan but I DO like several songs on her new album ?????

  • mona q

    I wish they still had good music every episode…music has fallen off…that is the main reason I liked the show…it is getting good though.

  • mona q

    She is trying entirely too hard in this get up. It’s like saying, “look at me, look at me”

  • mona q

    I LOVE THIS…montage…it is SO true…OMG…

  • mona q

    BUT it’s still her OPINION and people don’t have opinions because someone cares about them…they have them because they CAN. I agree with you Joy King.?

  • mona q

    OK…energy! I loved the same three…

  • mona q

    It’s funny because I saw on FB that a few people were cleaning to it too! lol

  • mona q

    Head to toe, she is doing too much for a basketball game…especially if she wasn’t performing at said game. It’s just too much…And that smile she looks like the bad witch.

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Yeh, I notice that. Only 1-2 songs this ep. But isn’t Terrence and TP good together?

  • softness1

    OMG I thought she performed!!! Wait, so she just showed up like this. lmao

  • CaramelDrop

    Let me find out that Mona Q is short for Monique!!!

  • Berry Melon

    Nicki’s outfit does have a Chun-Li vibe to it. – official artwork circa 2000. I wonder what Capcom would say if Nicki released an official video for Chun-Li? Isn’t the name copyrighted?https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/241eb57b30c4691dc10396245124634c51e4369f7760a0aa5618e0972029566e.jpg

  • FukkFolks2018

    But Fendi no bottoms? Bikini bottoms with your Fendi? What are the odds?. I’m gonna let her slide tho bc it’s not new behavior for her lol

  • EMILY POST

    I was thinking is she saying like Chun Li from street fighter…. Awww she is going to have to give a lot more Asian and a lot less strip club… Dominatrix to pull off that look.
    I like Nicki hairstyles though….
    I am not for the Cardi and Nicki Comparisons but Cardi B may not be able to rap better than her at all no where close…….. but Cardi B is Stompin her with the clothing choices. Nicki Looking like she working at the Strip Club Cardi retired from…

  • kekeb

    LOVE that hair!!

  • EMILY POST

    Wow…

  • CocoBabe88
  • Trace da Ace

    ok..the song is nice…but it still has that “bubble gum” sound to it. And STOP COMPARING NICKI TO CARDI B!!! Damn…..why can’t they BOTH be great??? They both make good music and live??? That is what I am saying is folks always try to pit the females against each other and need to stop….damn……oh and that outift…NO MAAM….looks like she was going to the club, not a ball game….and that LiL Kim circa 1998 pose….GIVE IT UP!!….try some new poses….lady-like poses….Iam just saying…

  • Kita Williams

    Cardi is a quick study and takes rapping seriously which is why she studied and got mentored for her album, is grown and can have a baby if she wants, just partnered with Fashion Nova to design her own line with them, and signed with Jimmy Fallon as well. Her career is actually going to climb due to ventures outside of the music industry. while being readily available for features with established artists prior to the release of her debut album shows reliability and flexibility in her ability to adapt to different sounds, and propelled her to the top. her features are the reasons those songs get a lot of play. why be so negative n pray for people’s downfall? just be happy lol

  • Allihave2say

    Yes. I’ve seen her natural hair and Blac Chyna’s. They stay protective styling with wigs. Auntie with that natural hair lie is doing way too much. I knew it was a wig but SR tried it.

  • mona q

    YESSSSS…when I think about anyone else playing these roles, I shudder…I would not be watching this show if Mo’Nique was Cookie and Wesley Snipes as Lucious…uh NOPE…

  • mona q

    Bwhahahaaaa…well…it is! ?

  • Bossy704

    Chun Li album cover is EVERYTHING.

  • Karen Brady

    !!!

  • CaramelDrop

    Hey name twin!!!

  • mona q

    Lol. But how’d ya figure that out? Because you use that too?

  • AmericanDream

    None of what you said is rooted in facts and even if it is none of those so called ventures have staying power .
    Fashion nova? Really ? You seem to struggle understanding the difference between a few hits and durability . Reducing the whole debate to negativity is pedestrian at best . Just like you believe she has staying power , so too am I allowed to think the contrary

  • CaramelDrop

    I actually get irritated when people pronounce it that way? the only other related name for me is Nikki.

  • mona q

    Now ..See my mom always told me that my name was pronounced MON EEK…more like the “o” in the word money rather than MOE-NEEK which is how everybody pronounces it…I just get tired of correcting people so I have learned to live with it…I shortened it on here to Mona Q ????? but my mom would kill me if she knew…
