    I just tuned in to HSN to see the presentation. That bottle is really ugly.

    I just spotted this column. I can’t get HSN in my area but I do occasionally look at some of the hosts’ facebooks. People were upset about Minaj being on HSN last summer….and let colleen know on no uncertain terms.
    While her music has a great deal of mature content, and is not my favorite….I admire Minaj for breaking in to a music genre that has been dominated by men for decades. I admire her even more for the tremendous donations she makes to charity. She wasn’t on there to sing and sell music, people. She was on HSN to sell perfume.
    The bottle isn’t a beauty…but is also not ugly. If you like the perfume you can always decant it into a bottle of your own, that you might like better. Nicki has every right to be on HSN like many other celebrities are. If you dislike her that much, just don’t watch. There’s no need for rude and condescending remarks.
