Today, Nicki Minaj is one of the biggest names in the music industry. But a few years ago, when her career was just starting to take off, the “Anaconda” singer wasn’t necessarily known for her songs nearly as much as she was for her fashion looks—and not for the right reasons!
Let’s say that there is a fine line between sexiness and extravagance, and exhibitionism and pure madness, and that difference for the 2011, 2012, and 2013 Nicki seemed to be a little unclear.
Wigs, transparencies, platforms, way too much make-up and an explosion of colors were everyday things for Nicki 6 years ago. Constantly leading the worst dressed lists, fashion always had something to moment on her over-the-top outfits. But at the end of the day, for better or worse, they were all talking about her!
Nicki is far from being that eccentric rapper (not completely, tho) of the early decade. But, if we’re being honest, we do miss her a little. That’s why, in honor of her 35th birthday, we present to you this photo gallery with some of Nicki Minaj’s craziest most outrageous looks!
