Now that Nicki Minaj’s third studio album has a date of release, everybody can get accustomed to seeing the Barbie Queen more than usual.
Dazed magazine was quick to the preemptive strike for her inevitable November sweep and nabbed Ms. Minaj for their anticipated autumn/winter issue. Unveiling not one, but two covers, Dazed Fashion Director Robbie Spencer and photographer Jeff Bark channel the superstar rapper’s darkside by comparing the Twisted Fantasy vs. Twisted Reality.
Seeing that it is the season’s hottest time for fashion however, the spread does feature Nicki in avant-garde gear such as Marc Jacobs, Chanel, La Perla and Miu Miu boots.
Don’t be surprised if the autumn leaves are painted pink this year, either. Nicki and Young Money Records finally narrowed in on the date of November 24 to drop her highly anticipated Pinkprint album. The single “Anaconda” has already turned the entertainment world upside for a myriad of reasons.
Flip through the gallery below to see the gold from her Dazed photo shoot. The issue hits newsstands tomorrow, September 11.
