It seems like Nicki Minaj is close to inking a deal as the final judge for the upcoming season of “American Idol” with reports that her spot on the hit show is “100 percent confirmed.” So when the Pink Friday singer announced last night on Twitter that she would have a big announcement this morning for her barbz, we assumed a confirmation of her new gig was imminent. Turns out, the big announcement was the reveal of the bottle design and title of her highly anticipated debut fragrance, “Pink Friday.“
The perfume, named of course after the superstar’s debut album, has a bottle that is as provocative and out of this world as Miss Minaj herself. Complete with her signature baby pink wig, the bottle looks like a futuristic, golden version of Minaj with an ample bust and a gold “Nicki Minaj” necklace.
The fragrance, which she tweeted smells “like angels playing,” will be released in late September at Macy’s retailers and with fan tweets like the below, there’s no doubt that it will be sold out and that every girl’s dresser will have a mini-Minaj on top.
@NICKIMINAJ does it come out worldwide at the same time?! How much longer must I wait? Jesus.
@NICKIMINAJ most creative perfume bottle i have EVER seen. omg its PERFECT !!!!
@NICKIMINAJ Breathing has become a struggle and im pretty sure an asthma attack is about to pop off!!! its PERFECT!
As for “Idol,” the wait continues to see who will really take the third spot on the hit show’s judge panel next to Randy and Mariah Carey: Nicki? Diddy? Katy? And the list goes on…. Stay up to date on MTV News’ “American Idol” page.
