When Nicki Minaj sat down with MTV News to discuss her role in The Other Woman, she looked different; gone were the multi-colored wigs, eye-grabbing outfits and colorful makeup. But don’t call Minaj’s new look a makeover. According to her, “it’s just coming full circle.”
“I went so far to the other side that there’s only one place to go from there,” Minaj told MTV. “You can either continue doing costumes or you can just say, ‘Hey, guess what? This will shock them even more. Doing absolutely nothing will shock them even more.'”
Minaj cites her Elle Magazine cover shoot as the beginning of her natural transformation.
