It’s a cover girl sort of day, ladies and gents. Nicki Minaj cleans up her act (sorta) for the Elle April 2013 cover. With a minimalist approach to hair, makeup and styling, Nicki shows off a more vulnerable side of herself. She tells Elle,

“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.” 

This is the best I’ve seen Nicki since the early stages of her career. She’s a beautiful lady, so from time to time, a pulled back look lets her positive attributes shine. I really appreciate her advice to women in business:

“Even if you’re doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want— and don’t allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge. You want everyone to know, Okay, I can’t play games with her. I have to do right by this woman. That’s what it’s all about.”
