“Super Bass” rapper Nicki Minaj is known for her flashy outfits and wigs, but she recently shared a photo of herself toning it all down.
Minaj (whose real name is Onika Maraj) shared a photo on Twitter while getting ready for American Idol last week. It wasn’t a makeup-free picture, but she was rocking softer makeup, showing off her (nearly) natural beauty.
Minaj, 30, has been displaying her glamorous side recently. According to a report by The Sun, her style is changing because she fired her hairdresser and stylist in an attempt to come across as more mature and adult.
“Nicki is desperate to be taken seriously as an artist,” a source claims.” “She’s fired her long-standing hairdresser who has been responsible for some of her crazy hairstyles over the years. She’s also fired her stylist.”
The rumors about Nicki getting rid of her stylist and hairdresser have not been confirmed, but according to the report, she feels it is the perfect time to revamp her image.
Now that she has taken on her ‘American Idol’ judging duties and put her true self on display, she can “finally be taken seriously and release a proper hip-hop album.”
