[Sidebar: I always wondered who Flo Rida was talmbout in his hit record “Low”. You remember
Nelly T-Pain singing the hook…. “Apple bottom jeans, boots with the fur…” right? Well… I had no problems twerkin to the smash back in the day, but I honestly didn’t have one friend who rocked Apple bottom jeans and boots with ‘the furrrrrrr.’ But I digress.]
Above, Minaj rocks a celestial printed long-sleeved crop top, paired with matching skin-tight leggings. And while it effortlessly fits Nicki’s own outrageous style, I can’t help but wonder if the average woman can pull this off.
Minaj sure thinks so… or hopes so… as her new clothing line hits the racks of your local K-Mart soon [yuuup K-Mart. You read right].
The rambunctious MC debuted her new discount warehouse fashions last week and shared photos modeling upcoming fashions from ‘The Nicki Minaj Collection’.
The outrageous ensembles, which clearly speak to a certain type of consumer,
not me is said to be available at KMart soon. But are you feeling it? While it’s not my style, I’m sure there will be quite a few ‘Barbies’ out there just waiting to snatch up a piece of Nicki. And is it me? Or does Minaj’s dress above seem oddly reminiscent of Beyonce’s “House of Dereon?”
Cash Money’s leading lady couldn’t beat Queen B on her best day. At least when it comes to magazine sales. While Jay-Z’s significant other is the best-seller in publication so far this year, the Barbz leader didn’t fair so well.
Nicki Minaj is indisputably newsstand poison.
Appearing on the April cover of Elle and in Teen Vogue in June-July, she sold the second fewest number of copies for both. Teen Vogue’s readers prefer male matinee idols — One Direction last year, and Justin Bieber in May (104,018). [Source]
We know Nicki’s machine is not that of the Queen, but it’s still a considerable force, so it shoulda been demonstrated in numbers. Is it all just smoke and mirrors? Only time and those KMart fashion sales will tell….
