Young Money’s Nicki Minaj recently discussed her eye-catching wig game and how she has drawn inspiration from a variety of sources including animated television series The Simpsons.
Minaj said her ability to keep coming up with new wigs has helped her image consistently evolve.
“Never did I think I would be rocking the Marge Simpson,” Minaj said in an interview. “But you know what, now that I am [wearing] them I realize that she was cutting edge and before her time. So shout out to Marge…My wigs are ever changing in height, width, color, size. They make me feel happy. Wearing them makes me feel that I can be a different person every day and that is kind of exciting…Sometimes I wake up in the morning and I am like, ‘This is a high-top day’ or ‘This is a bob day,’ but when I get my clothes on that’s when I see…I always have lots of wigs to choose from.” (PEOPLE)
Last summer, Minaj opened up about her obsession with green and pink wigs.
If you choose to wig it: “Go for a human hair wig in jet black with a blunt cut China bag…I like the green bob. Everyone seems to like that. People are saying it’s the winner right now…I decided to choose a new look. Color makes me happy. It really excites me. I am a very visual person and when I look in the mirror, and I see green or I see pink, it does something to my attitude. It makes me feel positive.’ (Hype Hair)
Rap rival Lil Kim previously taunted Minaj’s wig association at live concerts.
During her performance Kim threw off her blonde wig saying she’s above this, while throwing her blonde wig into the crowd. I’m going to another level,” she told the fans. “I love the wigs and everything but I’m so above this. I’m so above this…I’ll be back !Lil Kim is a legend, and LEGENDS don’t diss babies, she’s the Queen B for crying out loud. Honestly the last thing we need is beef between Lil Kim and Nicki Minaj. Does Lil Kim need to dust of her Biggie records? “F*ck that beef sh*t! That sh*t is played out” (Global Grind)
In a past interview, Minaj said she hoped to one day shave her head and rock a fresh bald cut.
“I’d like to be able to come out in jeans and slippers. The world has seen all my crazy antics, so now I’m ready to be a regular person…I like to experiment with hair and makeup, so maybe I’ll just shave my whole hair bald…I know right now she has no idea who I am, but I’d like to collab with Enya one day. Of course I’d love to work with Jay-Z, maybe even Phil Collins. I love his voice.” (VIBE)
