We thought there was something up when we started seeing Nicki Minaj
wearing normal people outfits. The Queens-bred rapper has reportedly fired her hairdresser, makeup artist and stylist in order to re-invigorate her rapping career after "American Idol."
reported that a close source said, "Nicki is desperate to be taken seriously as an artist." Adding, "She’s fired her long-standing hairdresser who has been responsible for some of her crazy hairstyles over the years. She’s also fired her stylist." Recently the singer has been spotted wearing form-fitting dresses, sleek wigs and tons of platforms. We love her new look, but a small part of us misses her old eccentric style. Sike!
Here are ten of our favorite new Nicki looks.
