Nicki Minaj Becomes A REAL Doll
This has certainly been a banner year for Nicki Minaj… and she’s about to seal the deal for her superstar title with a collaboration on the single most popular star in the doll realm, Barbie.
Following up her entry into the fashion realm with a performance at the Versace for H&M launch and an OPI nail polish collaboration that will launch in January, Miss Minaj’s has revealed that Mattel is launching a special one-of-a-kind Barbie doll fashioned as Minaj herself with all proceeds benefiting Project Angel Food, an organization that provides and delivers food for people with or affected by HIV and AIDS.
And it seems her multi-marketing aspirations don’t stop there. An agent at CAA recently confirmed for Billboard Magazine that Minaj was also in discussions for a fragrance deal and also different apparel companies. “We’re expecting that will make her a mainstream brand.” Mark Cheatham says, “She’s very hands-on, detail oriented and has a specific vision of what she wants to see.”
And… apparently what she wants to see if a Barbie-Minaj mash-up.
