America’s favorite Barbie, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm], has here eyes on a new prize. After toppling Twitter with the most followers among hip hop artists, the Jamaican beauty wants to take over the Queen of fashion magazines, Vogue.
[photogallerylink id=133791 align=left]By take over, we of course mean star on the cover of the fashion zeitgeist. Minaj has already been featured on the revered magazine covers of W, Elle, Cosmopolitan, and V, but her and her manager have been very vocal about Vogue being the big target.
“[Vogue's] on my wish list,” her manager Cortez Bryant told The New York Times. “I hope. I hope.”
As for Nicki, she’s been dropping lyrical hits, like “Ayo Anna Wintour, I’ma need that cover, baby girl,” she raps about the Vogue editor on the song “Muny” from her debut album Pink Friday.
Luckily Nicki is well on her way to her lofty goal of scoring the Vogue cover. She has already bumped elbows with Editor-in-chief Anna Wintour at New York’s Fashion Week, she’s hired PR firm, 42 West, who also represent bigs like [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Rihanna[/lastfm] and perhaps most significantly, the 29-year-old rapper is in the works of creating her own clothing line.
Her manager, Bryant, is in talks with a fashion house currently who will sell the collection. “She is all about her brand and where she wants to go,” he said.
Well I’m gonna be on top of that new Nicki line. One word: Fierce!
