You truly reach pop divadom when you release a signature, branded fragrance. Everyone from Katy Perry to Taylor Swift to Justin Bieber has done it and now, Nicki Minaj is crashing the scent party. Too bad she (temporarily, we think) quit Twitter or she could be tweeting away about this new endeavor.
According to WWD, Minaj will issue her debut scent this fall — just in time for holiday shopping season.
“I have always been a huge fan of great fragrances,” the ‘Starships’ singer said. “This is yet another extension of my creative expression. I designed the scent and bottle with my Barbz in mind.” The quote actually said “Barnz,” but we think it was a typo and that WWD meant “Barbz,” which is how Minaj lovingly refers to her fans.
While we don’t know much more about Minaj’s first fragrance at the present moment, we’re going to go out on a limb here and predict that the bottle will be very pink and that the scent contained within it will also be inspired by pink things. Y’all know about Minaj’s love affair with the color. Maybe she’ll somehow license with Mattel to feature some sort of Barbie imaging on this or future scents, since most celebs craft a portfolio of scents.
