AMP Music Minute: Nicki Minaj Is Halloween-y, Beyonce Releasing Roseland Ballroom DVD, And TI Is Hustling On His New Album
When you think about celebrity Halloween costumes, some of the classics come to mind, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Marilyn Monroe[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Elvis,[/lastfm] [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Michael Jackson[/lastfm] perhaps. But these days, people are more likely to show up to your party in a meat dress, a la [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm], than Hulk Hogan or even Wonder Woman. And there ain’t nothing wrong with that!
This year, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm] is all the rage! Accordng to Google, she is the most searched celebrity costume. This should be no surprise considering some of the outfits we’ve seen her in this past year. I keep seeing the Franken-wigs she rocks from time to time, and her look is already so Halloween, she seems like the perfect celeb to model yourself after.
AMP got in on the trend, showcasing the neon pom-pom outfit as one of the many ways to be her Minajesty. And other sites have similar features, “In a tutorial with 300,000 views, a YouTube poster shares tips on applying vibrant makeup, picking the perfect pink-infused outfit (down to the animal-print shoes) and finding the right wig,” notes the New York Daily News.
When you think about it, not only is Nicki an ideal Halloween costume because she’s fabulous but putting a “Nicki” outfit together can be done on the cheap. Or you could make it yourself. Crafts and sensible prices? Sign me up!
As for Nicki, well she is reportedly going as Lil Wayne this Halloween. She got a head start on the set of Birdman’s “Y U Mad” video, donning dreadlocks, a wife beater, chains and baggy pants while responding to questions in a slow drawl to mimic her boss man.
