Nicki Minaj is the latest celebrity to launch her own fragrance. This week marks the launch of her debut fragrance, Pink Friday.
Sporting a blonde wig, and neon clothes, Nicki looked rather plastic at the New York launch. Doesn’t she? She doesn’t even look real! I don’t know what it is, but she sorta creeps me out, like a walking wax figure.
Pink Friday, a blend of sweet florals, vanilla and musk is packaged in a bottle crafted in the likeness of Nicki, and she couldn’t be happier with the final product.
“I’ve been thinking about [a fragrance] for like, the last two years actually; I knew I was going to call it Pink Friday,” Minaj told MTV News, adding that the final details came together in recent months. “I didn’t know I would have a pink wig on the bottle until I met with the fragrance company and they asked me what I wanted my bottle to look like and I said — is there any way we can put a pink wig on it?”
“They said, ‘You know what? Let’s try,’ ” she explained. “And they came back with sketches and I was floored that they actually nailed it, I couldn’t stop looking at the sketches.”
In addition to the signature pink wig and matching baby pink lipstick, the white and gold bottle also features a custom gold ‘Nicki Minaj’ nameplate necklace for added flare. “When I saw the actual picture and it began coming to life, I was like ‘wow,’ ” Nicki added. “My fans are going to spaz out when they see this.”
Nicki’s Pink Friday fragrance is just her latest foray into the world of cosmetics. Earlier this year, she debuted an off-the-wall nail polish collection for OPI, which included selections like “Did It On ‘Em” (named after her song of the same title from Pink Friday) and she also joined Ricky Martin as a spokesperson for Mac Cosmetics’ Viva Glam campaign.
Minaj’s Pink Friday fragrance is available for purchase at Macy’s.
I’m interested in smelling it, I always am interested in smelling celebrity fragrances…but that’s as far as I’ll go. I don’t buy celebrity fragrances. But apparently a lot of people do!
