Last fall, we got to see Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin’s finished campaign pic for MAC’s Viva Glam line. But now we’re treated to a behind-the-scenes look at the Young Money reptress and Glee guest star‘s colorful shoot for the charitable cosmetics line. Below, see the VIBE cover girl in full Barbie mode and the devilishly handsome Latin crooner flex his muscles as the duo pose for David LaChapelle. Plus, hear what Viva Glam’s latest spokespeople had to say about their time on set together.
“I wanted to hug everyone at MAC for giving me this opportunity. I’ve always wanted to be a Viva Glam girl,” the Grammy performer beamed while in the eye-popping set.
It seems that time on set was a love fest, as Ricky and Nicki had nothing but incredibly kind words to share about one other. ”Working with Nicki is amazing. She’s young, she has the energy, she’s so sexy,” Ricky raved. The “Starships” rapper, in turn said of the crooner, “He’s a dream. He’s so humble, so genuine, so sweet. He just brought a peaceful vibe and a calmness to the set that everybody gravitated to.”
