This blog post was never meant to be about Nicki Minaj. Initially, I wanted to feature together, the new issue of NYLON magazine with my new faded denim jacket from American Vintage. I thought the colors on the magazine with the faded denim complimented each other. However, while taking the photos, I eventually realized, that similar to the Rolling Stones cover with John Lennon and his wife, that the entire cover was just Nicki Minaj with a headline saying ‘Whats Good?’
Typically on the cover you get a face and then a bunch of headlines on the borders giving you a hint of what is inside. Not this issue! It all wen to the queen of the hip-hop game. THAT IS POWER!
“There’s no denying that Nicki Minaj is a boss. Since her 2010 debut, she’s dominated in numerous avenues, from apparel and fragrances to the wine industry and (of course) music…”
Holy crap! This girl has her own wine!? #queen Upon discovering this new information, I learned that she is about to take her resume to new heights with a major role in Barbershop: The Next Cut, as well as executive produce a television show inspired by her own life.
Having only rad 12 pages into the magazine, I was already convinced that Nicki Minaj deserves to be the only thing on the cover. She is paving the way for future (female) entrepreneurs.
However wonderful Nicki Minaj is, I want to credit NYLON for not only a great cover but for a great inside. More specifically, NYLON finally featured a full length interview with Jeffree Star!
If you have been to my blog before you know that I am a huge fan of his. I have five of his liquid lipsticks and I cannot wait for him to come out with his new highlighter. All this said, it can be argued that NYLON magazine is one of the best fashion magazines out there.
