The super over-the-top sweet young thing that is Nicki Minaj is known for her candy-colored top-to-toe steez. Most recently, the Young Money artist credited fictional cartoon character, Marge Simpsons, as one of her inspiration.
In an interview with People.com, Nicki Minaj stated:
“Never did I think I would be rocking the Marge Simpson, but you know what, now that I am [wearing] them I realize that she was cutting edge and before her time. So shout out to Marge.[…]My wigs are ever changing in height, width, color, size. They make me feel happy. Wearing them makes me feel that I can be a different person every day and that is kind of exciting.”
If you’re waiting on the edge of your seat for the day she’ll stop changing looks, you might as well wait for a long time. Our princess is not thinking to stop anytime soon. In fact, expect more craziness.
“My wigs are ever changing in height, width, color, size. They make me feel happy. Wearing them makes me feel that I can be a different person every day and that is kind of exciting…Sometimes I wake up in the morning and I am like, ‘This is a high-top day’ or ‘This is a bob day,’ but when I get my clothes on that’s when I see.”
Aside from Marge Simpson, Nicki Minaj also credits her stylist, Terrence Davidson for her chameleon-like transformations. And speaking of different looks, here are ten of our favorite Minaj hairdos. Which one do you like?
1. The Au Naturel
If you look a little closer, Nicki has already got the pink extensions underneath the jet-black color.
2. The Rainbow Gal
Can we say that she was being indecisive and opted to go with ALL her favorite colors here? She looked cute anyway.
3. The Two-Tone
Probably our least favorite of all Nicki Minaj hairdo. She could be more creative, don’t you think?
4. The Pink Bangs
Because this wig ended up on her Pink Friday album cover, we have to say it’s eyecatching. As for experimental… we actually expected something more edgy. But again, cool nonetheless!
5. The Pink Updo
Now THIS looks more like a Marge Simpson-inspired updo. Paint it blue and can we call her Marge Minaj? Lol.
6. The Cotton Candy
Don’t you just want to grab her hair and taste it?
7. The… Pope?
Other media might have raved about this hairdo as ‘Marge Simpson-like’. But all we could think about is: how Nicki manage to look like the Pope.
8. The Cruella De Ville
If Cruella De Ville has a white streak on her hair-rising hairdo, Minaj went the opposite. Although the outfit is too… ‘costumey’, we gotta say the she worked the wig well.
9. The Sexy Orange
For you, gents, who long to see Minaj in a ‘normal’ hairdo, we assure you, our girl here looks great with a medium-length cut. And if you don’t mind the orange, we think this is one of the best Minaj hairdo ever.
10. The Poodle
Um yes, why don’t you decide on this one. We’re not too crazy about it.
