With the impending release of Minajesty and the premiere of her new ad (above), Nicki Minaj talked with People Magazine about the idea behind her look for the campaign and why she went in that particular direction.
Here is a small clip from People Magazine’s article on the new ad:
“With the ad for her latest fragrance Minajesty (the follow-up scent to her successful Pink Friday), Nicki Minaj continues to do what she does best: makes jaws drop.
We don’t know what to discuss first. The dramatic ruffled gown? The sky-high cotton-candy hair? The bonanza of bling? The throne she’s perched upon? Let’s just say this: Everything about the ad is majorly Minaj.
In the shot, the rapper poses in front of a golden throne with arms stretched wide over her “kingdom.”
“I absolutely love this image and I hope my fans are as excited about it as I am,” Minaj tells PEOPLE exclusively. “This new brand is striking, unforgettable, sexy and full of mystery.” She goes on to say that the photographer (David LaChapelle) perfectly captured her vision, “blending high fashion and pop art in such a remarkable way.” “
