Nicki Minaj’s Sophisticated Style

Nicki Minaj is an icon to many of my students, and even some of my friends. Her lyrics, while sometimes a bit jarring, are raw and powerful, and her fashion is always eye catching to say the least. Recently however Nicki has transitioned to a more toned down and sophisticated look that I find both mature and inspiring. In her own words “I kind of feel now that I look more like my regular old self, like what I look like when I’m at home.” You can read more about her decision to update her style in the article, but personally I’m really inspired by the 31 year old star. To be able to accept yourself, and promote that self acceptance to an impressionable audience is truly admirable.

nice shoes!
I love her attitude even though she may come off as a diva sometimes. She is one tough lady!
She's stunning. Her body is absolutely insane!!
personally I don't care if she wants to wear crazy wild wigs and outfits, or more reserved stuff like this, just do whatever makes you happy you know? I think it's cool that she's confident in herself, and I think it's a good example to others.
Agreed @nikkinjg, I love that they're this fun accent on her sophisticated outfit.

Twitter's Biggest Celebrity WAR
"Gun in my purse, b*tch I came dressed to kill...." On July 21st, Nicki Minaj took to Twitter to release her frustrations with the MTV VMAs nominations. Minaj is largely upset that her music video "Anaconda" was not nominated for Best Choreography and Best Video of the Year when it definitely should have been. Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" hit 19.6 million views in the first 24 hours breaking all previous VEVO records. The next to break Minaj's VEVO records was Taylor Swift which is why when Minaj refers to "girls" in her tweets, it's why many think is ultimately a poke at Swift. The "Anaconda" video caused a media storm filled with men sexualizing Minaj, women critiquing, thousands of memes, celebrity mockery, and Minaj risking her self image. Everyone who was anyone talked about that video and was OBSESSED. However, MTV Video Music Awards still didn't nominate her video. Ridiculous. This isn't the first time a video that deserved a nomination was snubbed. Katy Perry's "Roar" was not nominated last year when the view count for her video broke multiple records. She took to Twitter last year prior to the awards upset over the nominations. It has now opened the gates for all artists to feel comfortable to use their voice to call out the award show when they know they deserved a nomination. Minaj called out the award show saying that she has done everything the other nominees have done in her series of tweets but because she is black, she's been discriminated against and everyone knows it : It all started out with Minaj pointing out the flaws in how nominees are selected... Then Taylor Swift swooped in and reprimanded Minaj's tweets in the stance of faux-feminism. Minaj responded proving that Swift was in the wrong. Swift tried to make it about herself completely missing Minaj's point. And yet in all of the chaos, Kim Kardashian still managed to get involved... Ryan Seacrest jumped in siding with Swift which led to a swarm of attacks at Seacrest. He eventually deleted his tweet that victimized Swift and made Minaj look like she was attacking and weak. Yikes. And then Meek Mill thought it'd also be appropriate to throw shade at Drake. Horrible timing. Of course Bruno Mars tried to lighten the situation by launching a fake Twitter fight against Ed Sheeran. Aaron Paul invited the girls to pancakes. Indirectly, they were all mocking the girls and their behavior. They got to sit back and watch the show unfold... Katy Perry favorited Bruno Mar's tweet amidst the criticism of Taylor Swift. SHOCKER. "Black women influence pop culture so much but are rarely rewarded for it." Fans are NOT HAPPY with the nominations or Taylor Swift. In the past, Best Music Video of the Year is the top award for genre-defining videos. It's been given to Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance", Katy Perry's "Firework", Beyoncé's "Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)", and Sinéad O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U" in the past. Minaj is simply pointing out that nominations should be given and awarded to artists who are getting it based off of achievement. That's what an award show is for. Do you think Minaj is in the right? I think so.
Makeup Artist Draws Kim Kardashian On Her Chin
If you think Michael Jordan crying meme is hilarious, the Kim Kardashian one is twice as funny. As much as we love Kim K, she will never get out of this one -- ever. Let's be honest, her cry was monumental and quite hideous -- then again, who really has a lovely looking smile anyway? While Michael Jordan has been getting the most shine lately for his crying meme, it didn't take long before someone came along and put the infamous Kim Kardashian meme on the map. You've seen it on blogs, you've seen it on cellphones, and you've even seen it on shirts, but have you ever seen it on someone's chin? If not, today happens to be your lucky day. A talented makeup artist decided it would be cool if she drew cry baby Kim on her chin and believe it or not, it actually came out looking rather amazing. You cannot tell me that makeup is not a form of art. Laura Jenkinson is a makeup artist known for recreating images on her chin using her ever so amazing makeup skills and if you thought this was pretty awesome, just wait until you see her Donald Trump drawing -- yikes. In the meantime, keep scrolling and check out the images below. How epic is this? Looks just like Kim. Seriously. Of course, you can't have Kim without Kylie and her new lips. Amazing! Looks just like Jay-Z. Big lips and all. He has that same sinister look he always has on his face. Donald Gump. Ooops, I mean't Trump. Hey Everyone, look it's Finn from Adventure Time! And of course, I had to save the best for last and for @alywoah. Tacos! How amazingly odd are these works of art? Which one is your favorite? @alywoah @danidee @humairaa @cindystran @sophiamor @buddyesd @marshalledgar @YourConscience @shannonl5 @TessStevens @MyAffairWith @EasternShell @Cle1 @jazziejazz @primodiva93 @stephosorio @LizArnone
