Nicki Minaj has made as many headlines for her fashion choices as for her music, so it’s no wonder that she appears on the cover of the New York Magazine Spring Fashion 2012 issue. The issue centers on figures who have packaged their style for public consumption, art and profit.
“I’ve always been intrigued by color and by interesting hair,” Minaj admitted, citing Cyndi Lauper‘s videos as inspiration. “I like the idea of doing something that everyone else is not. I get high off that. Just the idea that other people don’t have the balls to do something — that’s my thing.”
