  15. RosaRubbel October 15, 2010

    Don’t ask me why, but I fell in love with this cover. It looks so cute. I think this will be the first female rap album I’m going to buy in ages!

  16. FUTURESTARdelux October 15, 2010

    IT’S OK, THE SHOES ARE HOT BUT THE DRESS REMINDS ME OF THE “LIVING DRESS” THAT GAGA WORE AGES AGO… AND THE WHOLE NO ARMS ANNOTHER IDENTICAL WIG IS CRAP…

    I HONESTLY DON’T THINK THIS ALBUM IS GONNA DO AS WELL AS IT’S HYPED TOO, SHE HASN’T HAD A SINGLE SOLO TOP 10 HIT AND IF KATY PERRY SOLD AS LITTLE AS SHE DID WITH 2 MASSIVE NO1’S I DON’T SEE NICKI DOING ANY BETTER. #JUSTSAYING

  27. Nothing But My Opinion October 15, 2010

    ^nope it looks KATY PERRY-ISH

  28. Lil CiCi October 15, 2010

    I like the cover. Very cute and original. Nicki I give her props. @ CiaraMedlies wtf!!!! She is not copying Ciara and I’m a Ciara stan. Don’t make a fool out out yourself and make the rest of the fans\stans look bad. Smh……..

  29. Alex October 15, 2010

    @LilCici exactly what i was saying some stans just need to sit the f*** down but thank you boo for not being an ass

  30. The Truth October 15, 2010

    @LilCici name ONE part of that picture thats “original”

    I’ll wait….

  31. Christian October 15, 2010

    She is overrated, Drake is overrated, Lil Wayne is OVERRATED!!! Cash Money is OVERRATED!!! I’m tired of ALL OF THEM!!!!!

  32. Lil CiCi October 15, 2010

    @ Alex

    Your welcome honey bun. Smh….. I ride and die for my Queen Ciara but I don’t hate other artists. And @ The Truth #sit.

  33. KAT DELUNA FAN October 15, 2010

    It’s cute but cry “TEENAGERS” so much.
    That’s why I cant take her seriously ..cute anyways

  34. Emancipation October 15, 2010

    @FUTURESTARDELUX
    Thats where you wrong. Katy is POP and shes a single artist so thats why her 1st week album sucked. Nicki on the other hand is a rapper and with so much hype around it she will sell about 300k or more 1st week.

  35. JAYLA October 15, 2010

    I HOPE NEGATIVITY HELPS YALL DEAL WITH YALL OWN MISERABLE LIVES BETTER LMAO, GOOO NICKI, AND SINCE WHEN DOES SINGLES PROJECT ALBUM SALES???? SOUND SO STUPID

  36. Alex October 15, 2010

    @LilCici you have a twitter?

  37. chile please! October 15, 2010

    I swear I can not take her serious! She is such a joke to me! I can’t wait for Black Friday……..I need to find some OVAH sales!

  38. jinxx October 15, 2010

    You people actually think this is creativity dam you thunder cats there wasn’t a black Barbie till 50 yrs ago an this is what Nicki calls herself n portrays as if she’s 1 guess she wants to be a blond hair blue eye chick w/e creativity huh this generation I swear. Namaste

  39. getting_licked_out October 15, 2010

    I LOVE IT!I LOVE IT!I LOVE IT!I LOVE IT!I LOVE IT!I LOVE IT!I LOVE IT!I LOVE IT!

  40. Alex October 15, 2010

  42. Alex October 15, 2010

    @LilCici aww lol

  43. CIARADABESS October 15, 2010

    @ciaramedlies

    B**** stfu, you f****** embarrass me. How is this copying Ciara? Ciara and Nicki are two different covers. Wayyyy different.

    Anyways, love the cover and I’m getting the album, along with Kanye’s.

  44. SoPRETTEE1908 October 15, 2010

    wft really ?

  45. Lil CiCi October 15, 2010

    @ CIARADABESS

    Girl that’s what I’m talking about. That dumb s*** irks the hell outta me. Some Ciara fans need to grow up and be humble. I’m coppin the album2!!!!!!! Nicki do u mama!!!!

  46. FUTURESTARdelux October 15, 2010

    @EMANCIPATION I THINK POP USUALLY SELLS MORE THAN RAP UNLESS IT’S LIKE EMINEM OR SOMETHING. ANYWAY EVEN THOUGH KATY IS A SINGLES ARTIST HER 2ND ALBUM WENT PLATINUM AND SHE HAD 2 MASSIVE No1 HITS WITH THIS ONE SO HOW DO YOU SUPPOSE NICKI WITHOUT EVEN A SOLO TOP 10 WILL SELL HIGHER?

    I SAY 150K 1ST WEEK TOPS BUT I THINK IT’LL PROBABLY BE LIKE 100K.

  47. locodude October 15, 2010

    Luv it!!!!!!!!!!!

  48. teflon boy October 15, 2010

    Lol and this album is gonna be comparable to Lauryn Hill’s ‘Miseducation’ how?

  49. dapope9 October 15, 2010

    This Chick Is Gonna Be Around For A Long Time!!!

  50. Robier October 15, 2010

    Bwaaaahaaaaa

  51. MaZ October 15, 2010

    The cover looks as crazy as her! Lol

    Inspired of french Photographer Jean-Paul Goude (Who worked with Grace Jones)

  52. MrIncredible October 15, 2010

    I like… very much so.

  53. UMMM………….. October 15, 2010

    It’s so Missy Elliot (exaggerated legs) or even GaGa! It nice though. I love the pink platform boots!

  54. KAT DELUNA FAN October 15, 2010

    The cover is really pop and not rap enough.Nicki want to be a popstar now (i.e Check it out/your love & songs with riri).Too Bad !!

  55. wwwwwwwwwwwooooooooooowwwwwwwww October 15, 2010

    @ christian…..co-sign!!!!!!!!! ughhhh, but its cute tho, i like it a hell of a lot more than other covers….but with s*** like that right thru me crap, i dont think its an album i wanna listen to if its sounds like that mess

  56. lisa October 15, 2010

    DON’T NOBODY WANT TO HER ALL THAT CAT VOICE OF NICKI ON A WHOLE ALBUM AND WHAT WAS THEY THINKIN WITH THIS ALBUM COVER SHE LOOK CRAZY!

  57. The Truth October 15, 2010

    @Lil CiCi

    You’re right! I’m #Sitting and waiting for you to show me the originality

    *Orders Drink*

    this is gonna be a LONNNNNG sitting!

  58. SPEECHLESS October 15, 2010

    For some reason it feels like Ive seen this picture of her before, IDKY but whatever…Its not like I was planing on buying it anyway

  59. JT October 15, 2010

    I love how you fools — Sam included — only comment that’s it’s, like, so Barbie-ish (OMG!) but only one person even notices she doesn’t have arms in the photo. I mean, let’s not discuss the meaning of that or anything.

  60. True Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Blue October 15, 2010

    This chick is such a gimmick…

  61. The Truth October 15, 2010

    @JT then why didnt you share the symbolism?

    I think its funny that Nicki creates the #itspinkfridayhoe TT on twitter EVERY friday and has YET to talk about Breast Cancer awareness and the color for that is….you guessed it…PINK!

    this chick is a GIMMICK and a HALF!

    But such is the music game in general these days….

  62. Lil CiCi October 15, 2010

    @ THE TRUTH

    #FAIL.

  63. Clos October 15, 2010

    @ KAt Deluna…..Well I think Lil Wayne trained her so well! Let’s be honest if nicki would have just stuck to a rap album “Trina” who I love than she wouldn’t get have of the publicity, magazine covers, awards, appearances, etc…that she does now! She knew that she had to come up wit a nitch that made her stand out among the other declining female rappers and she she nailed it wit the harajuku barbie thing!

    Love the album covers and wish her the best of luck

  64. raraskils October 15, 2010

    where are her arms??

  65. Shaytan October 15, 2010

    Whats funny is that if you google David Lachapell & Lil Kim this has been done. I hate to hate on Nicki because I respect her grind but this is getting annoying. Girl is like a Lil Kim stalker!

  66. MUSIC LOVER October 15, 2010

    I like it, but the legs don’t look right to me. I understand the look they want, but still. It’s very Nicki!

  67. English Babe* October 15, 2010

    i agree with christian.

  68. ~Team Weezy~ October 15, 2010

    Um, so what’s so good or ‘original’ about this cover?

  69. badd October 15, 2010

    I could see this selling becasue she had so much
    hype around her just like Drake…but idk about after the album
    & her sophmore release…hopefully she doesn’t
    get like Drake & become forgotten about.

  70. AuntieJackie October 15, 2010

    The lengthening of her legs is a photoshop disaster. I know it’s SUPPOSED to look cartoonish, but it’s wack.

  71. A.M. October 15, 2010

    I dont like it… but as long as it pleases her stans and supporters then more power to her.

  72. lola October 16, 2010

    The background and setting of this album cover are very beautiful and soft. I just hate how her face and legs look. Yea, she’s supposed to look like a doll/barbie, but she should have practiced her face expressions more so she could look more like a pretty friendly barbie, not a deranged and scary doll. Barbies are always so beautiful and fantasy like. I wonder how much she’ll sell her first week. She definitely has a large urban fanbase and many times the urban crowd buys albums with an arist who is hyped up and has shown dedication to the industry and fans and Nicki has done that. She’s also been introduced to the mainstream industry and many of people of the mainstream audience are catching on to her. I’m very surprised that her “You Love” single only reached number 15 on the Billboard 100. That’s pretty damn good, especially for a rap artist, but when it’s a crossover single and you have dumba** singles by artists such as Soulja Boy, Iyaz, Sean Kinston, Ludacris, and Usher get into the Top 10 and even reach number 1 , you’re sh** should be there too.

  73. Ms. Mooks October 16, 2010

    Damn, ppl, its an album cover.
    Does it have to be realistic? Da f***??
    Americans complain about EVERYTHING!
    …expected from a country who voted for Bush TWICE!!

  74. HaYYYYYYYYYYYY October 16, 2010

    i lovveeee the album cover
    its so nice and im happy its not like a hot pink thats too much, its subbtle
    i cant wait to buy the album
    #itspinkfridayhoe

  75. Jae October 16, 2010

    Very similar to the work Lil Kim has done with Dave La Chapelle. Can’t figure out if this imposter is a die hard Kim fan or Juss a drag queen version of Kim or maybe both?

  76. meezy October 16, 2010

    hmm, @ first i wasnt sure how to express my thoughts towards this, but i thought about it and its very nicki minaj, its cool. MORE interesting,creative,and enetertaining then the albumcovers we see today. ITS getting ATTENTION and thats what nicki minaj does. LOVE it or HATE it everything she does recently you guys talk about it. I Seriously think the ones that dont understand her are confused fans.

  77. Facts Officer October 16, 2010

    I think some men are gonna PASS on buying this album just because its SO PINK…Real Talk…..She is gonna lose some sales there. As Stupid as that sounds its true…She better be betting on the Females and Gays for this one.

  78. GangsterA October 17, 2010

    amazing slay nicki i love love love the cover and the shoes dam to die for

  79. CinnamonLips January 26, 2011

    I LOVE THOSE SHOES!!! I seriously find it irritating how people get soo worked up about little things like this.. Guys, go see a shrink ’cause you need to tell it to someone who cares… Trolls! Now thats taken care of, this girl is great, and despite what people say she is original, even though her style reminds me of a rappers Lady Gaga 😛
