    i can’t belive the catholic churches heads are lobbying and is boycutting,to get reed of nicki minaj out of the game,because of the grammy performance,madge,gaga and others bin using church scenes in there videos like forever,and no one said anything,but as nicki did it it,s automatically a mock all of a sudden,everyone of em is in a uproar,man Bias is a b-ch.

    They never use the Catholic in a mocking way. It was a lot more creative and they both have more talent in their pinky then Nicki

  7. RDK February 14, 2012

    Who was one of the first M.A.C Girl’s? Lil Kim, Who was one of the first girls to wear Barbie pink lipstick within the last 12 years. Even when some black girls in the early 2000s thought pink lipstick on black skin was dated(70’s,80s) and wearing lip gloss and nude lipstick was the tee!?LIL MUTHA F***** KIM!!!!!!!!!”The originator, the trend creator, b**** ya dun knun ya hef ta respect me?”

    These days a boycot from the Catholic Church means little…like seriously…it’s like the Parent’s Council.

    No one really gives a f*** anymore.

    Anyway this has me pumped! I’ve been loving Nicki’s makeup lately so its BEEN time that she was on the cover of Allure.

    Congrats to her.

    Aww I loved Ricky in that, I do appreciate Mac for their attention to this issue. Already got my MAC lip color and lip balm reserved, a lot of beauty people are loving the shade of the lipstick so it should collect a lot for the cause this year.
