Look many female singers before her, hip-hop star Nicki Minaj is coming to HSN next month to hawk her new fragrance.
Minaj, who has apparently toned down her Technicolor hair, will be on the air July 11 with Minajesty: Exotic Edition.
Here’s the scoop from an HSN.com blog:
Fragrance is a woman’s best accessory because it makes you feel more confident. It’s sexy and it makes you feel unique.
With the launch of her new fragrance, her new album, and more natural look, Nicki Minaj is revisiting her roots. We got the chance to learn a little bit more about Nicki, her background and success with a recent Q&A.
Q: You’ve been speaking about going back to your roots. What does that mean to you?
A: “As it relates to music, it just means to make sure I remain in a place where the music always comes from my heart and that nothing else but passion is driving what I do. The PinkPrint will be a very passionate album.”
Q: Can you tell us one person you admire or look to as a mentor, and why?
A: “I admire and feel mentored by Lil Wayne. I’ve always loved his work ethic & unique talent. He’s been my biggest teacher in rap music.”
Q: What does a “Day-in-the-Life of Nicki Minaj” look like?
A: “It looks like long hours in the studio, tons of calls and emails all day, lots of laughs with my best friends, approving photos, approving mixes to songs that will make the album, trying on clothes for upcoming events, and always less sleep than my body needs.”
Q: What one piece of advice would you give to a woman who is struggling with self-confidence?
A: “I’d tell her that she was beautiful whether she realizes it or not and that the moment she begins to believe in herself, the possibilities in life are endless.”
Minaj follows in the footsteps of singers such as Mary K. Blige and Jennifer Lopez, who have also hawked their scents on HSN.
