AMP may have gone Pink for October but [lastfm]Nicki Minaj [/lastfm] lives the full on Barbie lifestyle: pink Malibu Barbie car, pink champagne, and her Pink Friday remixes available on Twitter modeled after [lastfm]Kanye West[/lastfm]‘s G.O.O.D Friday tunes.

Part of the [lastfm]Lil Wayne[/lastfm]‘s Young Money crew, Minaj has become the biggest female name in hip-hop in under a year; Minaj is the first female rapper with the most entries on Billboard’s Hot 100. All without an album and only one single. Nicki Minaj Lesson #1: If you want to be successful, don’t envision piles full of green. Think pink!

Nicki Minaj might not have any of her own tracks out, but she is evidence that a strong female diva can even overshadow the famous men on her track. Minaj has seven entries listed as Nielsen Soundscan’s 200 best-selling songs in 2010 and her songs have banked a total of $4,298,000 in sales.

Some of the songs include “Your Love” ($755,000) and her guest features on [lastfm]Ludacris[/lastfm]’ “My Chick Bad” ($1,246,000), [lastfm]Usher[/lastfm]’s “Lil Freak” ($508,000), and [lastfm]Lil’ Wayne[/lastfm]’s “Knockout” ($519,000). Minaj is the first female hip hop artist to bank the position since [lastfm]Missy Elliot[/lastfm]’s “Work It.”

Time to celebrate! Nicki, we are down for a tea party with pink champagne in diamond flutes and pink velvet cupcakes.  Start planning!

Minaj may have a lot of haters but she sums up her feelings about this perfectly in Kanye West’s “Monster”: And if I’m fake I aint notice cause my money aint/So let me get this straight wait I’m the rookie/But my features and my shows ten times your pay/50k for a verse no album out!/Yeah my money’s so tall that my barbie’s gotta climb it.”

“Your Love” is Minaj’s only single out and one thing in this universe is written in permanent pink ink: Nicki Minaj has a lot of your love.

Minaj’s  debut album, Pink Friday, is scheduled for release November 23.
