Hot Shots: Nicki Minaj Channels Japan For Fashion’s Night Out

Published: Friday 9th Sep 2011 by David

If fashion designer Gieuseppi Zanotti was unfamiliar with Rap enchantress Nicki Minaj and her infamously die hard fan base, last night’s ‘Fashion’s Night Out‘ party held at his boutique in New York City would have been sure to change all of that.

For channeling her love of Japanese culture into her outfit, the entertainer generated mass excitement when she arrived at the event, greeted by fans who had waited hours on surrounding streets just to catch a glimpse of her.

More shots from the night below…

    @SHEDUMB you stan for “lady Gaga” so let’s not! I can’t believe you look up to
    someone like Singing Bout Judas Walks in her underwear looks like Science
    Expirement Most of the time! Has s** in her videos! (Ewww)


    Gaga does not actually have s** in her videos and she does NOT walk around looking like a science experiment…sure BTW’S video was disturbing but my fave can actually tone it.down…

    And why is everyone so up in arms because she sings about Judas???Sure he was from the bible but the song doesn’t seem that damn harmful….

    I like how istan4Gaga replies and keeps it polite and cute. Well done. Glad you never go to the mat like a tag team wrestler right off the bat for your fave.

    As for Nicki. I know everyone b****** about her wigs but I don’t like her doing the elaborate updoes with just black. It’s boring and looks kinda poofy. The outfits bleh but I’m sure she was in heaven.

    LOVE to attend FNO.

    @SLEAZY :

    i may be over gaga “tricks” at the moment , but that won’t stop me to give her credits ! she’s amazing and talented at the end of the day ! PERIOD !

    and “judas” is about falling in love with the wrong/bad guy , she used “judas” as a metaphor ! and since it’s gaga , she spiced it a lil bit !! my fav song in BTW ! and actually it’s a brilliant song ! she’s not the average lyricist !!

    i am not christian , but plz … this one is so clear to anyone !

    and everyone is having s** in their vid except ADELE , your point ?!

    and i won’t even say anything about walking like a science experiment , where did you see one doing it ?!

  15. Lifee September 9, 2011


    She’s getting old in the face. Poor thang 🙁

  16. QUEEEEN September 9, 2011

    It’s not Kimono style, just imitation of Chinese dress!
    Japanese people feel upset if they see this outfit.

  17. NO CLONES September 9, 2011

    #suitcaseminaj is just sad & weird!

  18. NO CLONES September 9, 2011

    First this bytch disses AA women (nappy head h***), now the clown is making fun of Japanese culture #sit #suitcaseminaj

  19. I’ma have to send her back to her maker September 9, 2011

    Not sure how I feel about this look. Not her best. She needs some wardrobe assistance sometimes…anyway, sam is taking too long to post nicki’s new song with wayne and birdman. To all the haters, get ready! #Y u mad?? #GHOSTBUSTER!

  20. Cassidy September 9, 2011

    Gross…. She looks old and tired with clown faces! Wack! Next b****….

  22. Kisses September 9, 2011

    It’s soooo obvious the people that bought up Kim, see Kim when they look at Nicki. Otherwise they wouldn’t have mentioned Kim to begin with. Just saying…

  23. > that,s why you mad. September 9, 2011

    Nicki looks good keep doing you nicki…keep making move keep billing.

  24. Chile Please!! September 9, 2011

    I can’t take her……she really tries to hard IMO. All the over the top clothes & everything is too much. NEXT!

  25. Justathought September 9, 2011

    @Ima send her to her maker

    …you must be joking about her verse in that song. Sigh that was def lyrically not impressive. It’s also birdmans song not hers.

  26. Justathought September 9, 2011

    @who shot ya pow

    Lol wow that’s crazy smh

  27. I’ma have to send her back to her maker September 9, 2011


    no s*** sherlock. I know it’s not her song. You know the songs that nicki features in ppl only interested in nicki’s verses anyways. Check all over youtube at ppl mimmicking nicki’s part. Hellogoodmorning, lil freak, monster, bottoms up….etc And no, that verse go hard. Leave the haterade alone and stfu.

  28. I’ma have to send her back to her maker September 9, 2011

    Lol. It’s birdman’s song but all I hear is nicki in the hooks and nicki in the beginning verse so no matter who’s song it is, nicki is STILL the highlight of it. #Haveaseat. In that new monica song kim gets one snippet. I doubt ppl checking for kim in that anything to find you song. I am only interested in monica singing. Kim’s verses were always boring in all her features!!!!!

  29. Those That Cannot Do, Stan September 9, 2011

    Who Shot Ya Pow?

    Those four pics look nothing alike. Do y’all really have to reach that hard to make Nicki a copycat?

    Kim is in red.
    Nicki is in black.
    Kim’s cleavage is exposed.
    Nicki’s isn’t.
    Kim is wearing a floral pattern.
    Nicki is in a solid color.
    Kim’s hair is down.
    Nicki’s hair is up.
    Kim is wearing sequins and a bodice.
    Nicki’s outfit has no decoration.
    Kim has red toned makeup.
    Nicki’s is green and pink.

    …do I even have to get into the other two outfits that only look alike if you’re desperate and drinking the koolaid?

    Sometimes y’all could have a point with the outfits but then you try to hard and it just comes off like Kim fans struggling. Kim didnt invent kimonos and plentry of celebrities have worn them. In fact…I think the one Kim is wearing was originally worn by Julia Roberts.

  30. Those That Cannot Do, Stan September 9, 2011

    Kim’s dress is called a Red QiPao-CheungSam and is typically a Chinese wedding dress.

    Nicki’s wearing a Japanese Kimono.

    It’s one thing if it’s really alike, THEN you can claim copying but at least know the history of what you claim is a copycat instead of being spoon-fed something and accepting it as fact. Kim did a lot of cool stuff with her outfits but she didnt invent. She took it from another source herself and other folks have worn it. I even found a pic of Paris Hilton in a dress like Kim’s.

  31. La’Tonya September 9, 2011

    Who givvve afuuuckk what kim wore….it’s Nicki Minaj b******..they didnt even wear the same thing…&& nicki minaj im yo biggest fan but im tired of that eye shadow…lol…but u do yo thing gurl….

  32. who shot ya? pow September 10, 2011


    Babe, I’m just the messenger. Don’t go off on me. I didn’t make the photo, you can post what you wrote to the maker.

    You gotta understand, Nicki has already taken so much from Kim, every LITTLE detail will be compared.

  33. Those That Cannot Do, Stan September 10, 2011

    I don’t personally have a twitter but I know what the issue is, the only problem is when that person compares styles that are nothing alike it invalidates their argument for folks who might have been on the fence. Instead of being like “maybe Nicki is copying Kim” they’re like “…okay those two outfits look nothing alike. WTF are they talking about?”

  34. Mickie September 10, 2011


    “Kim’s verses were always boring in all her features!!!!!”

    So I assume you have heard them all? LMAO for a Nicki supporter and a Kim basher you sure do listen to a lot of Lil Kim. #UNDERCOVERFAN


  35. La’Tonya September 10, 2011

    @ Mickie..y do u assume we listen 2 wack ass do u knw it’s not somebody that lives around us who is obsessed with her just like i am with nicki…im jst sayin, thats how i knw so much about the too…my cousin is a big time kim fan && imma big time nicki fan..dnt speak up on waht u dnt knw

  36. Mickie September 11, 2011
