Nicki Minaj Promotes Pink Friday Fragrance On ‘The View’ In Hot Pink — Of Course!

Today (September 24) marked a major moment for Nicki Minaj as the Barbz continues “dominating every avenue” in her ever expanding empire: the official launch of her Pink Friday fragrance. The rapper announced her first stop of the day to promote her new perfume to fans via Twitter: “im up next on the view. and we’re giving away more vip packages for macy’s!!!!!!! go down there now! see ya soon!”. The newly named American Idol judge arrived in an eye-popping ensemble of blue and white leggings, a hot pink blazer and a matching pink police officer hat.

Nicki explained to host Joy Behar that she’s “more comfortable being kooky” and “less comfortable showing skin”. (We’re sure Joy was thinking, “I hear you, girl.”)

And just how has Idol been so far? Nicki says, “pretty good.” Of her fellow judges, the 29-year-old artist said, “I look up to all of them in my own way.” And while the Barbz had nothing but lovely things to say about Mariah Carey, she did call Randy Jackson “crazy”.

Minaj went on to share her excitement surrounding her Pink Friday scent. “As a little girl growing up in south side Jamaica, Queens, if anyone would have told me that I would have my own perfume one day and be able to inspire young black girls everywhere to go into Nordstrom’s or Macy’s to see their face staring back at them, I would have never believed it.”

Most surprising is that the ladies of The View didn’t bring up Nicki’s latest political verse in Lil Wayne’s “Mercy” or her public support of President Obama.
