If a picture is worth a thousand words, then Casio got it right in picking [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicki Minaj [/lastfm]to headline their new camera launch party.

The Harajuku Barbie not only had a million snapshots taken of her by fans but plenty of super stellar professional photos.  If anyone knows about cameras, posing and saying cheese it’s our girl Nicki Minaj.

With pop juggernauts like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Will.i.am[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga [/lastfm]teaming up with Intel and Polaroid respectively with the intent of helping the corporate photo powerhouses fully integrate the pop experience into their products, it’s no surprise that Nicki Minaj was next on the list.

The Young Money raptress is excited to work with Casio, and she’ll obviously be behind an incredible kickoff performance to help promote the brand.

The event’s launch, which will be known as TRYX OUT: NYC 2011 is slated to debut April 7th at the Best Buy Theater in Times Square and will also feature a performance by the hip-hop group, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Roots[/lastfm].

So if you want to see it, you best be counting your pennies to book a flight!

Even though TRYX OUT: NYC 2011 will happen during her tour with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lil Wayne[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rick Ross[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Travis Barker[/lastfm] which begins in Providence, RI on March 16th, the Casio show seems to be a priority for the HBIC (Head Barbie in Charge).

Nicki glowed when she talked about her collaboration with the camera company, saying:

Casio sure knows how to design a camera.  I’m excited to be part of the TRYX OUT: NYC 2011 launch party and look forward to working together with Casio to make sure this camera gets the party it deserves!

With a TRYX in my hand, there’s no doubt that I’ll be able to take incredible images and video on tour and beyond.

Hopefully, Nicki can turn this feature into a long term working relationship with Casio; maybe even get a Barbie line of Casio cameras in the works.  Who knows?

At least now we know Nicki won’t have to try to remember this Moment 4 life, she can just take picture!
