Pink Friday, a blend of sweet florals, vanilla and musk is packaged in a bottle crafted in the likeness of Nicki, and she couldn’t be happier with the final product.
“I’ve been thinking about [a fragrance] for like, the last two years actually; I knew I was going to call it Pink Friday,” Minaj told MTV News, adding that the final details came together in recent months. “I didn’t know I would have a pink wig on the bottle until I met with the fragrance company and they asked me what I wanted my bottle to look like and I said — is there any way we can put a pink wig on it?”
“They said, ‘You know what? Let’s try,’ ” she explained. “And they came back with sketches and I was floored that they actually nailed it, I couldn’t stop looking at the sketches.”
In addition to the signature pink wig and matching baby pink lipstick, the white and gold bottle also features a custom gold ‘Nicki Minaj’ nameplate necklace for added flare. “When I saw the actual picture and it began coming to life, I was like ‘wow,’ ” Nicki added. “My fans are going to spaz out when they see this.”
Nicki’s Pink Friday fragrance is just her latest foray into the world of cosmetics. Earlier this year, she debuted an off-the-wall nail polish collection for OPI, which included selections like “Did It On ‘Em” (named after her song of the same title from Pink Friday) and she also joined Ricky Martin as a spokesperson for Mac Cosmetics’ Viva Glam campaign.
Nicki”s love of PINK helped to inspire us to salute breast cancer suvivors living with diabetes on our free monthly podcast, Diabetes Roundtable.

See Mr. Divabetic’s nutrition game, Serve, Taste or Trash! You must decide which one you’d serve, which one you’d taste and which one you’d trash.
Before you decide to “trash” a veggie for good, why not try to eat it raw? Raw veggies can be more appetizing than their cooked counterparts to people who aren’t crazy about vegetables. The flavors of raw veggies can be milder than those of cooked ones.
