Do you like Nicki Minaj‘s over-the-top look? Turns out, the Lady Gaga of Rap herself isn’t even a fan.

The “Pink Friday” singer has fired her stylist, hairstylist and makeup artist, The Sun reports. Let’s just say she gave them the ‘pink’ slip. Her reason?

“Nicki is desperate to be taken seriously as an artist,” a source told the UK tabloid. “She’s fired her long-standing hairdresser who has been responsible for some of her crazy hairstyles over the years. She’s also fired her stylist. Nicki feels that now she’s done with ‘American Idol’ she can finally be taken seriously and release a proper hip-hop album.”

I don’t buy it. I think Nicki Minaj loves her crazy wigs and style. I’m sure the real reason will emerge shortly.

12 Divas Of Christmas: Nicki Minaj

December 19, 2012
12 Divas Of Christmas

12 Divas Of Christmas

Our tenth Diva of Christmas is Nicki Minaj. She’s the Barbie of Hip-Hop, complete with interchangeable wigs and all pink everything.Whether you’re Team Nicki or would rather send her and her gimmicks packing, you have to admit that as one of the lone females in mainstream rap she is holding her own with her multiple personalities and over the top, theatrical fashion sense. Nicki Minaj draws inspiration from everything from Barbie to the Harajuku girls. She combines influences calling herself the “Harajuku Barbie” and her love of pink is reflected in her clothes, nails and wig colors.

Nicki Minaj rose to prominence when she released her debut album, Pink Friday, in 2010, peaking at number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 and being certified Platinum by Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) a month after its release. She’s the first female solo artist to have seven singles on the Billboard Hot 100  at the same time. Her seventh single,“Super Bass” has since been certified quadruple-platinum by the RIAA, and has sold more than four million copies, becoming one of the best-selling singles in the United States.

ON THE SHOW:  Mr. Divabetic hosts this thirty minute whirlwind of PINK which includes a ‘Breast Cancer & Diabetes’ Hot Topics discussion, Bra-Fitting and Shapwear Advice, our popular Dining Out With A Dietitian segment at Pink’s Hotdog Stand in LA, a Diabetes Numerology Puzzle with a Titanic twist and a Mother Your Diabetes commentary. We’re also raising awareness for Domestic Violence. Guests include the Charlie’s Angels of Outreach: Connie Frazier RD, CDE, Kathy Gold RN, CDE, Catherine Schuller, Connie Elder and Mama Rose Marie. The program’s special guest is Leola C., from Grand Rapids, MI living with type 1 diabetes. Don’t get down, Get DIVA!

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.

President Obama is a Nicki Minaj Fan!

October 14, 2012

Divabetic FallPresident Barack Obama appeared on Y100, a Miami radio station and spoke with the radio stations DJ, Michael “Yo” Simmons about several topics, including the feud on American Idol judgesMariah Carey and  Divabetic’s October Diva Inspiration, Nicki Minaj and the fact that he has Minaj on his iPod.

ABC News reported that Simmons asked Obama what he thought about the feud between Carey and Minaj. He replied that he thinks they are going to be able to work it out and that he is all about “bringing people together.” He mentioned that Mariah has done events for him in the past and her and she is a “wonderful lady.”

During the interview, the president said that he doesn’t know Nicki Minaj,

“But I’ve got her on my iPod.”

However, Nicki didn’t seem to care too much for Barack Obama. In a mix tape she made with Lil Wayne, she rapped,

“I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney, you lazy b*****s is f*****g up the economy.”

Orlando, FL radio station Power 95.3 asked Obama what he thought about Minaj’s rap. He responded that he wasn’t sure if Nicki was actually endorsing Mitt Romney in the rap. He also stated,

“I think think she had a song on there, that – a little rap that said that. But she likes to play different characters.”

Nicki later tweeted,

“Ha! Thank you for understanding my creative humor & sarcasm Mr. President, the smart ones always do…”

Stevie Nicks Regrets Comments About Nicki Minaj

October 11, 2012

Divabetic FallStevie Nicks regrets her  recent comments about about Divabetic’s October Diva Inspiration, Nicki Minaj. 

“I want to apologize for my remarks about Nicki Minaj‘s behavior toward Mariah Carey which I said during a long and exhausting day of interviews,” the iconic Fleetwood Macfrontwoman said today after catching heat for saying she would have “walked over to Nicki and strangled her to death right there” if the hip-hop diva had confronted her the way she did Carey.

“It was very out of character for me and I deeply regret what I said,” Nicks added. “I feel very protective toward Mariah Carey who has gone through many difficulties in her life and I spoke without thinking. I think all artists should be respectful toward one another and that includes me. I am truly sorry.”

Nicks commented on the American Idol judges’ little spat during an interview with The Daily to promote her new documentary, In Your Dreams.

The singer also said that she would not like to be a judge—but, even if she had to drag Lindsey Buckingham“kicking and screaming” with her, she would “absolutely” try out for IdolThe X Factor or The Voice if they were just getting started because “that’s how you get seen these days.”

Nicki Minaj Hates Working Out!

March 14, 2012

Divabetic: Nicki Minaj Hates  ExerciseNicki Minaj’s pink afro makes the cover of Allure Magazine fabulous! The Roman Reloaded rapper dons the frazzled curls with a pastel ensemble and divulges how she dropped a few extra pounds without the help of exercise.

“I’m naturally petite, but I definitely struggle with keeping those extra pounds off. And I hate working out. I can’t stand being on a treadmill. That mentally irks me. When I need to lose a few, I just cut out sugar and starch.”

“I never thought about music as just being the end-all, be-all. I always looked at it like a business, something that I could create an empire out of. So that’s why I’m only about to put out my second album and I’m already thinking about this,” says Nicki Minaj.
