Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj was spotted arriving back at her hotel after shopping at the Chanel store in Paris, France. She was carrying a Karl Lagerfeld K/Ikonik PVC/Leather Duffle Weekender Shoulder bag ($480). The 35-year-old rapper agreed with Bryan "Birdman" Williams' who declared her the best female rapper in the game.

When a TMZ videographer ran into Nicki at LAX Airport, he asked her if she agreed with Birdman. She gave him a thumbs up while someone in the background yelled, "Of course she is, bro!"

Nicki kept a low profile while working on her comeback album which many say will dethrone one-hit rapper Cardi B, whose debut album drops tomorrow (April 6).

The Karl Lagerfeld K/Ikonik Large Duffle Weekender bag is crafted from a mix of PVC and cow leather to make it affordable.

    I still have not heard anyone female rap like Mc Lyte , Eve, Little Kim can spit too. Many of the female rappers of today are pretty but like female rappers of the past it’s hard t be hardcore and feminine at the same time.

  • the guest

    Since Nas.

    Happiest she's ever looked too.

  • justlooking

    THE QUEEN Latifah, heck let's throw in Da Brat as well.

  • Pitty Patty

    I need another Truffle Butter from Nikki. That was the song of the summer a few years ago.


    Sandy can we get a post on the CDC doctor found dead

  • Pitty Patty

    Kim is the queen. IMO. She was able to rap, be sexy (raunchy as some would say) talk dirty, and capitalize of all of it. If she would'nt have started carving into her face, I think she would have been able to cross over into other things like acting, but her face is so hard to look at.

  • JennyJazzhands

    She's looking very matronly. That's what happens when you purchase huge bewbs and try to wear a normal top. Or she's pregnant.

  • Yoni7

    Nice coat, Nikki.

  • FukkFolks2018

    the best female rapper in the game
    What game she in? She aint put out an album in 4 almost 5 years. IJS

  • Smoke

    You keep saying come back album....and best female rapper is definitely a stretch

  • Yoni7

    Has it been that long? I couldn't name one if I tried.

  • Yoni7

    Target.$22.95. $35.98 at the MOST. And no 'white face emblem' to promote either.

  • the guest

    I agree. She looks pregnant and she's glowing. I'm happy for them.

  • SoulfulLove

    I heard she went to rehab. Not sure if that's true

  • Vegas1989

    I'm with you on that. I use to love me some little Kim. I had them outrage weave in the Army girl....LOL...My 1sgt use to shake his head. I wish that she would have stop after boob job number #11 and Nose Job #25. Now she look a little old Asia women.

  • SDot

    There she is, chicken legged, high hipped, GMO/SYNTHETIC body Nicki.


  • SDot

    naaa she just went to the plastic surgeon.

  • mona q

    Is it me or is she looking brown again? For a minute she was looking light, bright, almost that Remi is on the brown skin, love the skin you're in campaign, I see Nicki is oddly more tan these days...

  • Quitedeliteful

    I know this is snarky but I wonder if Nicki's back hurts from carrying around that concrete bottom...

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Reina1718

    Different eras ?????

  • Karen Brady

    she's very covered up. Who is she supposed to be preggo by if true? Not Nas??

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    All them chicks looks lighter than they are in pics. Remy included. It's industry makeup and lighting. When you see them in natural light you see their true skin tone.

  • SweetTEE

    I SCREAMED LOL..sounding like my gma!!

  • Monday

    This is what happens when the industry turns your back, you don't have the same 'glam squad' favoritism....

    She looks like LIL Kim with the flop Gucci.

    10 songwriters for "Be Careful" of Cardi B. Lauryn Hill & Ghostface are two of them. Cardi B is in for next Grammys

  • Calikush

    At first I thought she was Toni Braxton!!! ?????


    That bag is hot...

  • BlackMenHATEBlackWomen

    Is that her mom in the 1st pic because I've never known Icky to look so dark. If that is her, what's going on with her skin? Are glutathione clinics not in France?

  • SaltineCrackers

    She's looking like Mrs. Carol Miraj instead of Nicki Minaj.

  • Dahl

    She looks oooold in the first pic. That neck and wig scream 55, not 35...

  • sunni_daze

    She looks like her mom.

  • iWasteTime

    Look at the only female rapper, ever to sell a 100 million records and have all their studio albums sell at the least, 5 million copies

  • mona q

    Nahhhh... I’ve never seen Remy looking anything but brown, browner than other times but still brown. Nicki however, I’ve seen on tv and photo looking light skinned. I recalled a while back that someone zoomed in on her hands on another site asking when did she turn so light. Progressively - so she was definitely doing something to her skin and has stopped. I don’t know what it is but she’s definitely brown again.

  • mona q

    Thank you. She is definitely darker these days than usual. She was getting lighter and lighter for whatever reason.

  • mona q

    Yep. Can she keep it going or is she a one time wonder?

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    I do think that nicki's album will destroy cardi b only because they setting cardi uo for one hit wonder failure. That barti cartier should have gone number one but..... this new song should hahe opened number 1 but.... so by the time nicku shows up ppl woulda been dragging cardi for her babymamaism her album and probably offset cheating again so nicki comeback will be a breath of fresh air. Unless remy comes through and kills it. But even then theres too many barbz


    Can she keep it going? Well she does have 4 or 5 albums that have all sold 5 million. She’s pass a one hit wonder babe. ?????

  • Sally Wright McLinn

    Is she gaining weight? I'm sorry, but I am so over celebs who promote European high-priced clothing & accessories. You want high-priced designer stuff? Go to a consignment store and support your local small business!

  • Latisaj

    Way tooo much makeup

  • mona q

    Now you’re right but what I don’t understand is how Cardi B is the first woman with five of the top 10 hits on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart in a single week since 1958. I’m not a female rap fan at all. Not since the Missy Elliott, Eve era so I don’t care for any of them but I want to know how Nicki could sell all those albums but not have the Billboard record too?

  • Mister Fantastic

    Nickki needs to hit the gymmie...
    See how I rhymed there?

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    I was just about to comment on that, too. She has way too much money to not be able to have a make-up artist who knows what foundations would work well on her skin and match!


    That’s the Million dollar question?

  • SumthinSweeter

    She looks just like her mom in these pics.

  • SumthinSweeter

    lol, no.

  • Ozad

    and those filled up titays!!

  • Malcom Flex

    If she preg she stupid.

  • Knocked Kneed and Pigeon Toed

    Yea ill agree with that. But I say lighter not just light but just seeing Cardi B in person several times shes no where near as light as they make her look in pics. Remy that pretty brown brown tho. Her skintone is flawless I wish I was brown like that.

  • gvah_styles_you

    .....she was NEVER the "BEST", she was just the only one on the court. #REALtalk

  • Kimberly King

    Gah damn she looking like her mama in these pics! Hate her makeup in the first pic.... She looks darker... as in her OG color before she got on. Nicki looks better in pink and nude lipsticks. That particular shade of red is not for her. Anyway, they said she was pregnant, but she doesn't look pregnant to me. I liked her Pink Print album a lot. Win Again and Favorite are my songs! Whatever she is about to release, I hope it can at least match that album.


    Yea. Her caramel shade is coming back..


    The darkness u see is her natural complexion .


    That's her real complexion.. She's still light enough to to pull off that white shade of foundation she was wearing.. it looked natural

  • Applebum

    10? Look again, there are 25-30 names that are listed. 30 people on one song. Lmao.

  • Kimberly King

    I see! There was nothing wrong with her skin tone (or any other black person's skin tone for that matter) in the first dang place.

  • Marlika

    This chic annoys me! ??

  • zero options

    Two things wrong with this article:
    1. Black Chyna, without the stroller as a weapon.
    2. Karl Lagerfeld, so 1980's yuck

  • Malcom Flex

    Maybe she's preg and stopped bleaching to not damage the baby.

  • mona q

    Me too! ?? It’s beautiful!

  • missmiami305

    I believe she was in rehab. Ready for her comeback tho. Cardi is annoying and one dimensional.

  • Decked Out

    She looks “washed up”. Between her and Cardi B, Rap has deteriorated in the TOLIET with Shyt. The wigs, phucked up attire and hyped Millenials who don’t KNOW anything about HIP HOP or RAP.

  • Tiff J

    I don't follow Nicki closely... but has she ever spoke about who her rap influences are? Cause there is no way that she can believe that she is the best female rapper ever to walk the earth. She may have the most sales, but that doesn't necessarily equal that you're the most talented, just that you have a VERY good machine behind you that went hard at promoting you.

  • 4FlavorsOfMe CreoleMami

    Nicki and Rih with this new thickness and I love it... looks good on them both.. Nicki is her moms Twin :)

  • Kim’s Original Face

    That’s a bad picture of Nicki up top. And I want those Gucci slides



  • Trace da Ace

    well I for one, feels like Nicki had a good people are looking for fresh faces, new styles and all that. Yeah she will try to come back hard...but I dont think it will be the same caliber as when she first hit the scene...yall know how it first your a spark, but fizzles out....she should be glad she stayed relevant this long..... now we need a beautiful, all natural brown skin woman rapper to come on the scene...with all these fake bootys, fake titties, liposuction and mad surgeries...NONE of them out here are real....

  • Allihave2say

    So that's a pic of Carl Lagerfeld on the front with shades?

  • Allihave2say

    Icki Nicki will continue to evolve into L'il Kim in looks, body, and career.

  • Allihave2say

    Just go to the dollar stores and buy some flip flops with wide band across the top. Order some green and red striped Christmas ribbon, grab a hot glue gun and clear glue stick or some E3000 glue. Tie a bow then stitch it on top of a band that's 4-6 inches across. Then glue band to the flip flops.

    Cost $10 or less.

  • Allihave2say

    Icki Nicki's rap influence is Lil Kim. She's slowly morphing into Kim.

  • Allihave2say

    I'm having a challenge with lipstick shades. It seems the rich colors no longer work for me, it's weird. I used to love Flori Roberts lipstick it was a jeweled color. IDK what happened but the nudes, gold, soft brown etc are now a better color for me. I just bought tons of new make up shades.

  • Allihave2say

    Icki Nicki is now a white woman. They age in dog years.

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Oooh Chile

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    LaTina his hood ... she can sing too.

  • TrollingStoned

    No shade but it seems like Nicki been 35 for the past 2 years

  • MRiGOThim

    Nicki is glowing!!!

  • VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    Yes that face bless her ....

  • Monday

    I honestly stopped after 10... the album was already written, they just needed the new it Entertainer to take over.
