Nicki Minaj dishes on her style icons
Rapper-turned-judge Nicki Minaj is not afraid to march to the beat of her own drum - especially when it comes to her sometimes outrageous women's clothing. Despite her individuality, Minaj did recently discuss in Hello! magazine who she looks up to for style advice.
When it comes to high fashion looks, Minaj admitted she turns to models Naomi Campbell and Iman for inspiration. However, in terms of her own wacky, everyday style, 1980s pop star Cyndi Lauper is Minaj's go-to girl.
"... She [Lauper] is the first person who used color in a way that made me feel excited. She used it on her face and hair, her clothes, her accessories," Minaj told the news source regarding her fashion inspiration. "She would put different colored shapes and cut-outs in her hair, and that made me want to explore the world ..."
It seems as though Minaj's fashion sense isn't the only thing the rapper is confident about. MTV News reports while on a conference call with reporters this week, the outlandish performer declared she hasn't had a bad moment while judging on "American Idol," and that in fact, she's been "spectacular" on every show.
