Nicki Minaj Explains Why She's Going for a More Toned-Down Look

nicki Minaj Tones It DownThe Pink Friday rapper-turned-actress, Nicki Minaj, is known for her outrageous lyrics and flamboyant rainbow-colored wigs and bubblegum shade lippie. But she is now making headlines for doing the complete opposite and sporting a more natural look. She shocked the world by wearing a simple black dress at the 2014 MTV Music Awards, leaving everyone speechless.

When asked about the change while promoting The Other Woman, Minaj responded, “I went so far to the other side that there’s only one place to go from there. You can either continue doing costumes or you can just say, ‘Hey guess what? This will shock them even more. Doing nothing will shock them even more.'” Check out the full interview on MTV.com

She goes on to explain that her natural look is also attributed to the music she’s been doing for her album The Pink Print, which will give us a more rap vibe compared to her hits like “Superbass” and “Starships.” Read more on Huffington Post.
