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.”

The Sun 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.

    She put herself out there like a clown and I think that it is too hard to overcome that. She looks better though. Maybe lay off the weave and wigs!

  • Ladydi82

    I loved the black lace dress. New year new path.

  • rororo

    It’s about time. Her crew made her look like a fool. If they were getting paid for what they did to her then she really was a fool. Love the new look, maybe I can take her serious now.

  • Mikki21

    That’s dumb, why couldn’t she just tell them she wanted to change up… What she didn’t have faith they can make changes?? Unless they are a one act pony like herself…HMMMM

  • jjac401

    Hopefully she keeps this look up so she can begin to look like an attractive human being (which she actually is). She was too hard to look at before.
