The Nicki Minaj we originally fell in love with has returned to us, the pick wigs are gone, crazy outfits and possibly the split personalities (We can keep those though). She graces the cover of Elle magazine with a look that pre-dates the her “Beam Me Up Scotty” mixtape days.
She’s sexy as always but she’s not as turned up the way we’ve grown to be familiar with.
It’s not by accident either, she fired damns near her whole styling staff because she wants to change her whole look which will coincide with her new music, which I’ looking forward to hearing.
In the clip above, Access Hollywood catches up with the voluptuous entertainer as she shows her“playful side” giving a self-interview while on set for the shoot. Her look on the cover showcases a McQ Alexander Mcqueen leather and felt jacket; along with a pair of Frame Denim skinny jeans. You can check out photos from the shoot below and purchase the April edition of ELLE when it hits newsstands everywhere Tuesday, March 26th.
