Young Money rapper Nicki Minaj has expressed her enthusiasm over uniting with her fans on an upcoming tour and also discussed the essence of her personal style.
Minaj also revealed one of her most valuable item in her makeup bag.
"Right now I'm super excited to be going on tour at the end of the year," Minaj said in an interview. "I can't speak too much about it but I know that I will be going on tour to promote Pink Friday and I'm going to get to see all the people I've neglected over the last few months because I've been working on the album and couldn't go out to shows and stuff, but, I'm just looking forward to going on the road, from city to city, state to state, country to country, all over the world and just having a blast...I cannot live without make-up wipes because I hate for the make-up to stay on my face for too long. As soon as I get back to the hotel, it all comes off. How do I describe my personal style? I would describe it as hip-hop, pop and cheek." (Nylon TV)
Minaj has already hinted at a few tour dates she plans to run beginning tomorrow.
The tour will kick off in Philadelphia on October 22, and so far, it will run through October 30 in Trinidad and Tobago. The Harajuku Barbie has been particularly diligent about keeping fans updated on her album and concert information both on Twitter and her official site MyPinkFriday.com, after a series of local concert scams in September had fans lining up at colleges to catch her perform.

The rapper's Pink Friday album cover art hit the Internet last week.
It's Barbie, b*tch! With her highly-anticipated debut Pink Friday about a month away, Nicki Minaj gets dolled up on the album's cover. Alarmingly staring at the camera, the Harajuku Barbie takes the pink motif to the extreme, sitting armless on the ground with her elongated legs in a flowing silver corset, pink stilettos, and a stark pink wig.

Originally slated to drop November 23rd, the project was recently speculated to be released a day early.
Nicki Minaj has reportedly moved up the release date of her debut album "Pink Friday." The debut album from Hip-Hop's most popular female emcee will arrive a day early on November 22. This means that Nicki will be going up with Kanye West and his album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," and Jay-Z's "Hits Collection Vol. 1." Although she had been promoting a November 23rd date, she has now decided to release the album the Monday before Black Friday. (Hip Hop Wired)
