Nicki Minaj is doing really well. Admittedly, I was part of the camp that thought that here allure would fade after the initial attention she garnered but so far, she's proved me (and everyone else) wrong. We all know that she has a nail polish line for OPI, is the current face of MAC's Viva Glam line along with Ricki Martin and had a Barbie doll created in her honour, but her big profile in this weekend's New York Times Sunday Style section revealed a lot of things that we didn't know about the rapper.
Interestingly, it was Minaj who approached MAC about working collaborating, which resulted in her lipstick collection with them despite Minaj pitching to be their Viva Glam spokesperson. Also new was the revelation that her November cover of W came as a result of her being unable to appear in their July music issue due to touring commitments and her people pitching for a cover. What was most interesting, however, was her flourishing relationship with Vogue. According to the profile, the magazine's director of special events, Sylvana Ward Durrett, has had her eye on Nicki for a long time predicting her to 'hit it big' and her agent revealed that he is "in talks" with them about a possible cover. “That’s on my wish list. I hope. I hope.”
