Nicki Minaj Credits New Natural Look to Being More “Confident” (VIDEO)
If you’re like most of the population, then you may have realized that the bright-colored Barbz, Nicki Minaj, has taken a more au naturel approach to her look these days — something we actually love on her! So just what caused Nicki to trade in her pink wigs for her natural mane? According to Nicki, it’s being more “confident.”
“Maybe I’m more confident in myself,” Nicki said during her Good Morning America press interview for the new rom-com, The Other Woman. Nicki is featured in the film as Lydia, the sassy assistant to Cameron Diaz’s character, and during production, Nicki started to shed quite a bit of her over-the-top style in favor for a more classic look.
“Before my first album even came out, I said that by my third album I’d wear my natural hair. I did the wigs, I did the colors, I did the heavy makeup and all that stuff,” Nicki said. She later added that she “wouldn’t dispute” a newfound confidence in herself as the inspiration to stop hiding behind her neon bright gear and adopt a more natural look. “I think it’s a valid argument,” Nicki said.
Nicki wowed fans (ourselves included) with her sleek natural ‘do and lowkey makeup at the 2014 MTV Movie Awards earlier this month, which she accented with a skin-tight black Alexander McQueen gown.
We don’t know about you, but we’re definitely loving this more “confident” Nicki!
