Nicki Minaj Lets Elle Take Away Her Wig And Eyelashes

Nicki Minaj covers Elle magazine April 2013 issue

Whoa! It's Nicki Minaj like you've NEVER seen her before!

We always thought you'd have to pry the rapper's signature wig and false eyelashes from her cold, dead hands, but Elle managed to do it while Nicki was still alive!

What a coup!

Her Minajesty covers the April issue for the mag sans her beloved pink lipstick and eyelash fringe, looking fresh and beautiful with beachy waves and her boobage directly at your eyeline.

And compared to her usual ostentatious makeup looks, it's almost like she's not wearing any at all!

But the makeunder left her reeling. She said:

"When I saw myself with barely any makeup at, it was such a… like, I’m so, so attached to my pink lipstick, it’s hard. I feel that it’s become a part of me. To go in front of the camera, without pink lips or big ol’ crazy lashes- you know, nothing – I felt naked. It was scary! So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes."

Girl, you look amazing! Don't even sweat it!

The spread also features Nicki in a slashed-sleeve Tom Ford leather jacket, Dolce & Gabbana's basketweave bustier top and matching skirt, and the Jeremy Scott for Adidas face-print maillot that's been worn at least twice before.

But, SRSLY, more Nicki makeunders, please!

    Another black female entertainer made to look as nearly white as possible in order to grace a cover of a magazine.

    Too bad they couldn't take away that pathetic boob job! Her target audience is tweens and that is a deplorable image to be peddling to them.

    She looks SO much better more natural like this. Not so much like Mrs. Potato Head.

  4. 4

    She looks G-R-O-S-S!!!! She looks like an ugly man in drag (no offense to drag queens)

    LOL. Because we KNOW that blonde weave is authentic, minus the wig. Accept the fro, even though it is ugly; at least is not a race lie.

    Omg she looks SOOOO much better! I used to consider her unattractive now I say the opposite!

    She looks a lot better without all that makeup!!! She's still got blonde extensions, breast implants and buttock implants, so she's not exactly 'natural'. She should try to dress more elegantly instead of like some child who stole her mother's makeup.

    Apparently, she has beautiful west indian hair that is long and wavy naturally. I would love to see her stop dressing trying to bleach her skin and hair. She's not exactly representing the black community when she's trying to whiten herself.

    Wow! Her music is still shite, but she looks soooo much better without all the cartoonish makeup on.

    Gross. The only reason I can see them doing this is selling copies on the sheer shock value of how trashy this thing looks not covered in plastic. She isn't natural though, as her face and circus tits are plastic too…

  10. 10

    gosh, she ALMOST looks human

    OMG. this is her best look ever. honestly, i'm not a fan of hers, but this is the prettiest she's ever looked. it's chic and effortless looking, even though i'm sure it took a lot of effort to get her looking this good

  12. 12

    yeah, sure - those aren't extensions. whatever. she's still covered in fucking tons of makeup and those big ol' fake titties look ridiculous, not to mention girl is PHOTOSHOPPED.

    Re: Nate – um, Nate? she does this to herself. have you not seen this woman anywhere else?! i get what you're saying but this isn't a good example of that. at all.

  14. sooz says – reply to this


    there are much bigger problems in everyday life, than not wearing lashes or ugly lipstick, you stupid woman

  15. justme says – reply to this


    wow, she looks so much better without those ugly wigs and overdone makeup

  16. jane says – reply to this


    She looks gorgeous!

    Re: bubu – just like white women claim their hair is the best, and natural an d go out and get perms. The self-hate starts with them.

  18. 18

    Re: aaliah – I do not get perms, only had one twice and once was a water perm for my wedding. I am white and happy with my hair overall although I wish it was more straight so I could grow it long, it is wavy and I keep it short, wash and wear.

  19. 19

    seriously are people really pulling the race card? It goes both ways. White people tan and get perms to get the naturally "curly" look black women have while black women wish their hair was straight. Grass is always greener on the other side. Im Biracial and have naturally kinky/curly hair and ive always wished mine was straight but my bestfriend is white with pinstraight blond hair and has always wished it was curly.

    Nicki Minaj looks great! I like Nicki Minaj wig
