Back of Painted Lady: Nicki Minaj Covers V in Tribal-Style Makeup Nicki Minaj has worn some pretty wild looks in her relatively short time in the spotlight.

Maybe it's because I've never seen her before, but they are totally freaking me out! wtf-kas 6 years what's with the tribal paint? she's beautiful when she's not trying to make an outrageous spectacle of herself, but the thing is, she's alwayssss making an outrageous spectacle of herself so that's why i say she's just too much.
