Nicki Minaj is a doll, literally. After referring to her fans as Barbies or Barbz for short, the hip-hop star has finally struck a deal with Mattel to create a one-of-a-kind Nicki Minaj Barbie doll, which will be auctioned off for charity.

According to Billboard, fans can bid on the item at CharityBuzz.com from Wednesday through Dec. 19. Bidding will begin at $1,000 and all proceeds will benefit Project Angel Food, which provides meals for men, women and children affected by HIV and AIDS.

“Barbie is obviously a pop culture icon. She’s been in the spotlight for over 50 years, and strikes that chord with girls of all ages in terms of being representative of the times,” Barbie spokeswoman Stefani Yocky said. “And Nicki is a big part of pop culture and also huge within the fashion industry, as well as a big Barbie fan. It’s really exciting for us that she’s been so generous to allow us to create this one-of-a-kind doll to support such an important cause.”

Whether the Nicki Minaj Barbie will go into mass production is unknown, but we here at PopCrush think it’s an obvious next move, especially with the pop star’s sophomore album, ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded,’ set to arrive on Feb. 14. Billboard also confirms that a fragrance deal and apparel line are in the works, so there’s plenty for Barbz to be excited about.
