Ever since she arrived on the hip hop scene, Nicki Minaj has always been … eye catching.
In some aspects that was for the obvious reasons.
Soon Nicki looking like a bit of a clown became commonplace, which was a shame because deep down underneath the goofy wigs and garish makeup was someone who didn’t need it.
Here’s a look at the old Nicki:
So with her role in The Other Woman, Minaj decided to tone her look down considerably and start letting people see her more reserved side.
Gone were the paintbrush-sized application of makeup, ditto for the rainbow dresses and wigs and instead we got a stripped down version that’s rightfully garnered a lot of attention and rave compliments that she’s outshining her co-stars including Cameron Diaz and Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Upton.
Truly in Minaj’s case, less is way, way more. Well, makeup wise at least.
I’m not sure if Minaj is going to become a big-screen force, but if for no other reason we should appreciate “The Other Woman” for letting us see the other side of Nicki and we’re all much better for it.
