YAS! Nicki Minaj Is a Blond Goddess Again
If you watched this year's American Music Awards, you know that Nicki Minaj just wasn't herself. She didn't walk the red carpet (and we've never seen her turn down that opportunity!), she wasn't all that enthused about her multiple wins, and she barely even cracked a real smile the whole evening. While you could chalk it up to life drama or the sheer exhaustion of fame, we're calling it — a part of Nicki has been missing. But thankfully, she's brought it back.
The rapper took to her Instagram account last night to reveal a blunt blond lob. While we love the cut, we are truly psyched to see Nicki rocking platinum strands again. It's only been about two months since she's dabbled with lighter hues (she had bronde hair then), but we can't remember the last time we saw Nicki as a Barbie blonde.
It seems that her brunette strands have brought out her serious side, and that's clear from her most recent (and more introspective) album, The Pinkprint. But we just want Nicki to be her happy, bubbly self again — and we're hoping that this new blond style does the trick. She's already busting out coy faces for the camera! Get a closer look when you read on.
