Nicki Minaj on the Set of “Love More”

Posted on August 05, 2013

Darlings, here’s Nicki Minaj, looking … well, pretty damn Nicki Minaj on the set of her new video with Chris Brown. We’ll probably never see it, but let’s all form opinions anyway, shall we?


Nicki Minaj on the set of her new video “Love More” in Los Angeles, California in a Versace studded Medusa lycra bathing suit paired with a skirt from the Nicki Minaj collection for KMart and Versace heels.

Well, this all seems to be in order. How long did it take you to see the face?

    Is the phrase “Nicki Minaj collection for KMart” a sign of the apocalypse?

    • random_poster

      No, I think that’s spot on. We’d hit apocalypse territory if it was a collection for, say, Macy’s. Between this and the Kardashians at Sears, it makes Target look like a genius for hitting up the high-fashion designers.

      • lilyvonschtupp

        An apocalypse? You know that thing where the moon gets in the way of the sun.

    • MilaXX

      I think Kmart collections sell pretty well. Lots of celebrities do them. IIRC before the Olsen twins properly started their fashion empire, they had a teen collection at Kmart. Jacklyn Smith has had a kmart collection for years, and Sofia Vergara has or had one as well.

      • mmebam

        The Olsen twins were at Walmart.

        However, to be honest, I am surprised that Kmart is still a thing. Target is where it’s at now. Hell, I would have even accepted JCPenney.

        • MilaXX

          I’m more a Target gal myself, but I think Kmart is still holding it’s own.

        • NC_Meg

          I didn’t even know Kmart was still in business until I moved to NC. (To be fair, I spent three years in Anchorage, AK where there is no Kmart. I had Target, though, and that’s what matters.)

      • H2olovngrl

        I used to get my daughter the Olsen twin stuff at Walmart. Surprisingly well made and very cute. Their line was a girl’s line, not teen.

  • Coleen

    I can’t stop staring at her eyebrows. Are they… airbrushed onto her face?

    • alyce1213

      They’re so pencilled in. Ridiculous up close, but not too bad at a distance, esp for music video.

      • Eric Stott

        She looks very painted up, but it works

        • StellaZafella

          On the other hand the same thing can be said for RuPaul….jus’ sayin’

          • MikeW_Vegas

            But RuPaul is a living treasure.. Nicki Minaj is just…. I don’t know what to end this statement with…

          • StellaZafella

            I agree about Ru…and I don’t think there’s any other way to end that thought.
            As an old retired drag queen myself I’m saying: Drag is Drag… But like Eric says, it works!

    • MzzPants

      Nothing any good drag queen wouldn’t do.

  • Diego!

    I can’t believe I was going to say this, but, taking into account who we are talking here about, this is a step in the right direction! She looks pretty chic for her taste! I can’t believe I’m saying I like her overall look!

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      Especially when you consider that it’s a bathing suit -A STUDDED BATHING SUIT- with a K-Mart skirt.

      • Diego!

        I agree! Even her wig looks great here!

    • marlie

      This is downright demure and tasteful for her.

      • Diego!

        Indeed! She looks great!

  • Darcy H

    Dear LORD am I over the fried blonde hair with super dark roots thing. Why, why is that even a thing? /rant

    Anyway, considering she’s wearing a bathing suit as a top she looks surprisingly good.

  • jelenawoehr

    She looks great! I want the shoes.

    • Tânia

      yes! I love the shoes!

  • In_Stitches

    Maybe it’s the fact that she’s doing a song with Chris Brown that’s bugging me and it’s carrying over into my comments on her outfit, but she looks like a cheap floozie.

    • fursa_saida

      I’m SO SAD she’s doing a video with Chris Brown, because in general she’s got an excellent track record of being positive about women, the realities of being a woman in the industry, encouraging her fans (most of whom are female) in education, etc. I EXPECTED BETTER FROM YOU, MINAJ.

      I think the thing that’s bothering me about the outfit is that it’s so boring. Like, I really don’t care how much skin a person shows, for the most part, but when she does it usually it’s at least something different or interesting, even if it’s way off the reservation. This is something a Kardashian would wear. Again, I EXPECT BETTER FROM YOU, MINAJ.

      • demidaemon

        Just to play devil’s advocate, chances are that the recording companies had some pull on setting up this collaboration and, if she wanted to keep her contract, she had to complete this task.

        Of course, I could be totally off base. But it is fun to speculate, no?

  • PlethoraofBooks

    About 2.5 seconds to find the face. It’s almost automatic after I read Versace.

    • makeityourself

      I didn’t see it until TLo asked about it. My question is, if this is a swimming suit, what’s going on with the face down below? Considering that it’s Versace, probably something of questionable taste.

      • demidaemon

        Crotchface. Or worse.

  • alyce1213

    For her, this is not bad. She’s much more acceptable when she’s not looking directly into the camera with crazy doll eyes.
    I took just a couple of seconds to see the Versace eyes — that’s all there is, right?

    The Chris Brown pair-up is another thing entirely. I find everything about him loathsome and so should everyone else.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    Your accessory (e.g., Chris Brown) is disgusting.

  • Onika K Morris-Alleyne

    If you can’t walk properly in the shoes, don’t wear the shoes.

    • marlie

      She’s about to snap an ankle in half.

  • etselec

    Her fingernails make me sad.

    • Constant Reader

      I’m beginning to wonder if claw fingernails are becoming a thing. Sweet Jesus, I hope not.

      • Sadly, not “becoming”. Full on, has been a thing. Granted, a tacky, usually younger woman thing, but steadily around for a while now. I argued with the teen step daughter last summer about how they were pushing my irritated parent button.

      • YoungSally

        I just noticed them on PR ….I think Helen(?) has them….How the hell does one sew and maintain a manicure like that?

        • Darcy H

          How does one LIVE and maintain fingernails like that?

          • demidaemon

            Thick skin.

  • MoHub

    I didn’t see the face until you said there was one. Also, if that’s a bathing suit, I’d be afraid to go swimming in it. I might not come out of the pool as covered as when I went in.

    • MilaXX

      I assume that’s one of those lounging by the pool, not actually getting in the pool suits.

  • Choosing to work with Chris Brown? I’ve formed all the opinion I need. No outfit necessary.

  • Montavilla

    I saw the face right away. She has a beautiful face.

    All the bracelets on her wrists make this look a little like a perp walk.

    • In_Stitches

      There’s a face in the bathing suit. I thought the same thing you did when they said that though. There’s so much to distract the eye, I figured that’s what they were commenting on.

      • Montavilla

        D’oh! Thanks. I would never have seen it.

      • pookiesmom

        OMG thank you for pointing that out. I didn’t know what they were talking about…I thought maybe they were saying her cleavage outshone her face? In which case, her cleavage is actually fairly tame compared to other outfits she’s donned. Mystery SOLVED.

  • Emily Smith

    lol I didn’t see the face until you guys said something. Also Chris Brown…ick.

  • Sara Brams-Miller

    Until you pointed it out. And she looks pretty fabulous considering normally she looks like she’s slathered in tacky.

    • LadyCelia

      What’s disturbing is that a studded Versace bathing suit is, for her, not tacky.

      • alyce1213

        I agree but wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s disturbing, just very amusing.

      • StellaZafella

        At least it’s not in pink.

  • Agador Spartacus

    Working with Chris Brown = DOWNGRADE ON ALL FRONTS.

    Also, the hair and nails are killing me. And not in a good way.

  • carnush

    OHhhhhh…NOW I see what you’re talking about. I was looking at all the faces, being like, what??!?

  • Kate4queen

    Versace + Kmart perfect match. 🙂

    • conniemd

      Ha Ha. I was going to say Versace bathing suit & heels with spiked straps. Of course.

  • Thom

    She needs fingers studded at the top of her skirt, and printed “VERSACE WAS HERE”

    • Constant Reader


    • YoungSally

      Of course pronounced Ver-sayse

  • julnyes

    Did not see the face until you mentioned it!
    Considering this is Nicki Minaj dressed for a video shoot I like it – it is attention grabbing and her face will look fantastic on camera.

  • JaCory Deon

    Has she gained weight or do they normally airbrush 10lbs off of her? Such a sexy, curvy body is being done no favors by that outfit…it looks both too much and not enough.

  • Sarah V.

    Honey, Chaka Khan is not a good look for you.

  • Beardslee

    I just can’t take seriously any woman who decides to turn herself into a cartoon character.

  • amber.

    she looks great. forget the haters. everything fits well and her face looks great. everything is in order.

  • Celeste

    What is with the 2″ of root growth?!?! You are rich enough to have a hair stylist on call. Get your hair taken care of.

    • Deenice

      Celeste, she has on a lace front wig that is designed WITH the roots like that. Those wigs cost major bucks ( at least $5,000 is my estimate) and are custom fitted and colored. Not a style I prefer but I guess once this fad fades, she can get the rest of it bleached to match… Well, I hope anyway 🙂

      • Celeste

        Thanks for the explanation. The fact that it is done on purpose and at such expense makes it even sadder. Oh well. As you said, hopefully the fad will pass… quickly!!

  • Sonja Brisson

    The new ‘lethal dagger nail manicure’ that seems to be all the rage (one of the designers on PR has them as well) is just hiddy, unsafe, and dare I say it, unsexy! You could stab your partner’s nether regions and do permanent damage. Or is that the point?

    Whether it is or not, it just feels so deeply unchic I have to avert my eyes.

    • AnnPopovic

      If you were doing ANYthing with Chris Brown…wouldn’t YOU sharpen your nails? Just…you know. To have something handy, case he needed a good smack upside the head/two-handed clawing down both sides of his face?

      • Sonja Brisson

        Ann, I’m down with you, but of course I think being within 20 feet of Chris Brown is a giant mistake. Hey, are you Serbian, BTW?

        • AnnPopovic

          🙂 not me, just the name…

  • Lizzy

    I really am not a fan of the filed-to-a-point nails.

    Or really any of the rest of this.

  • snarkykitten

    Why does that shithead still have a career?

    oh and Nicki, well, your nails frighten me. Claw his eyes out, won’t you?

  • Sunraya

    Boobs! And more boobs! Not much else to see.

  • Jen

    Face? What face?

    • AnnPopovic

      On her shirt. There’s a face on her shirt.

  • P B

    Oh TLo, thank you so much for not forgetting your straight boy readers. Mammary Mondays forever!

  • River

    I actually kind of love it. She’s shooting a video, for Pete’s sake, not a Vogue spread.

  • kmk05

    Love love love love her face. Flawless! Pretty natural for a music video… I wonder if she waits until the last minute to put on a lip colour? I really like her hair. Not the roots, but the shape of it is totally ‘live performance’ insanity. I didn’t even notice the boobs! I’m immune because similar ones run in my family. Love her legs.

  • Imasewsure

    I always start with her awesome hair and then work down to the giant cans so I guess I saw the face a lot sooner than some. Love this crazy B

  • Louise Bryan

    I keep thinking this is a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. Of course, I’m in the “more than a mouthful is wasted” cohort.

    • Anniebet

      Isn’t it “more than a handful”?

      • Kristin McNamara

        HAHA to the OP. Yea, I always heard it as “handful” too but I may have to officially switch to that new expression. It’s way funnier.

  • Linzenberg

    Sweet googly-moogly. She looks *exactly* like season 1/season 2 Emilia Clarke in the second photo. Her face is so pretty and refreshed-looking when it’s relaxed.

  • Kikishua

    She looks so sad 🙁

  • formerlyAnon

    I like that you can see how pretty she is. For a Chris Brown video this ensemble is downright ladylike. Which I imagine means she’ll be reclining during half the video with the skirt rucked up, or it splits up to the waistband so she can dance.

  • Anniebet

    This woman has honed her face and body to the max. This version of Ms. Nicki is oh so much better than the cartoon version of a few years ago. She’s not conventionally pretty, IMO, but she presents herself with such precision and imagination that she looks gorgeous. She must have amazing gays.

    The dark roots thing seems to be a fashion statement these days, either that or a visual raspberry to all us nitpickers.

  • Phyllis Craine

    She is batshit crazy. Is Nicki wearing two bras?

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Her demeanor in these shots is so timid and demure which contrasts nicely with the look she’s working.

  • AnnPopovic

    LOVE her and she would make a paper bag and a boa look FUN and ORIGINAL. Him, I hope he gets itches in all the places it’s impossible to scratch.

  • Richard Ramos

    Same shoes like Jhud recently! So fug! Are there not other shoe choices?!

  • Poeta Paz

    I don’t get it, especially the horrible hair. She could look soooooo much better.

  • lilyvonschtupp

    Beyonce 2003

  • Joey Melliza

    OMG – OMG – Medusa’s mouth is cray-cray’s Vagina – Gianni must be turning, kicking, screaming, bitch-fitting in his grave…

  • Contralto

    Beyond trashy.

  • Nicole Little

    She looks upset

  • I wonder who she’s going to tie up and flog…

  • You know, if you take away her hair and her garish clothes, she is so much tinier than I realized. All that STUFF makes her seem 20lbs heavier. The close-ups of her torso and face alone made me realize how small she actually is. Weird.

  • DamH

    Ohmmm.. there goes the Medusa!

  • itcantallbedior

    I actually think it’s rad she is mixing Kmart with Hermes (that studded bracelet) and Versace. The ultimate hi-low. Granted it all looks low.

  • somebody blonde

    Somehow I never noticed how tiny she was until now. I have no idea how that happened. I think she looks cute though.

  • Pterodactyl111

    I realize the dark roots are part of the look, but they make my eyes twitch.

  • And what a pouty little “poor me” face it is. Still she looks great!

  • Stacy Feng

    That first image, I seriously thought for a moment that she was holding up her boobs.
