Her cups runneth over: A giddy Nicki Minaj spills out of her star-studded basque while promoting new CD in NYC 

By AISLIN TAYLOR


Nicki Minaj really knows how to drive home the message that she's a star. 

The 29-year-old singer made a daring fashion choice today by opting for a tight-fitting basque to a promotional event in New York City. 

She paired the star-studded suit with ribbed tights, leopard-print heels and a cropped, shiny tuxedo jacket.

She also wore a gigantic piece of bling around her neck spelling out 'Roman', which is the title of her latest album. 

 

Though her ensemble might have seemed racy on anyone else, for Minaj, this look is fairly standard. 

She usually sports candy colours, hot pink lips, mile-long lash extension and bubble gum pink hair, after all.

The R&B/pop diva may have considered this look to be downright sophisticated, given that she traded in her candy coated locks for a demure, pin-straight blonde wig. 

Her make-up was even subtle; her light pink lipstick was almost sweet. 

However, the tight-fitting basque may have showed off a little too much of her best assets.

Given that she often calls both herself and her fans 'Barbie', it isn't hard to see where Minaj got the inspiration for her look. 

What type of doll she was going for still remains to be seen. 

The 29-year-old singer was making an appearance at the Best Buy in Harlem, NYC to promote her latest album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.

The album is named after one of her many musical alter egos, Roman Zolanski. 

During the in-store promotional event, she happily posed with a bunch of young Barbz, who were clad in similar pink shades. 

She couldn't resist letting the world know how excited she was by her sophomore effort. 

She tweeted earlier in the day: '106&Park tonite as well as my NYC signing @ BestBuy!!!! Aaaahhhhhhh!!!!!!!! See ya soon barbz!!!!!'

Though the album has already received criticism from critics because she chose to mix genres on the album, adding both dance and rap, she does have some heavyweights helping her out. 

Both Drake and Lil' Wayne collaborate on Roman Reloaded. 

Minaj hasn't et any negativity or unfair judgements get her down today, though: she's celebrating. 

She wrote on her Twitter page: 'Ok barbz. Gonna work on re-stocking the stores!!!! And gonna sip on this margarita and get right!!!! Let's go!!!'

I like her. I like her music, anyway. And I think when she's not trying too hard and going overboard, she's pretty.

I agree... she can be pretty when she's not trying hard.

I just think she is channeling Lil' Kim to much.

Lil Kim’s response to the messages that Nicki Minaj has been “allegedly” throwing at her came during one of her performances at a local D.C. Night club, when she put on a blonde bob wig and said “Yall know where this came from. I love when people copy me, that's a compliment. But when you bust shots at me and throw pebbles at me like as if I don’t even exist and you don't see me standing here, I'ma bit you. I'ma bite you,” Lil Kim said.
