Nicki Minaj Explains Her Racy Halloween Costume

Tue, November 5, 2013 11:59am EST by 5 Comments

The streets may have been flooded with Mileys during Halloween last week, but no celeb ruled the headlines quite like Nicki Minaj. Between Ellen DeGeneres’ humorous take on Nicki’s boob-happy attire and Nicki’s own very boob-happy attire, it was quite a NSFW week for the star.

According to Nicki Minaj, 28, her revealing — is there a more revealing word than “revealing?” — costume was completely unplanned. She was originally going to dress as a cheetah, but a last-minute cheetah costume shortage required a last-ditch costume scavenging effort from Nicki’s stylist, who came back with the boob-baring Fifty-Shades-of-WOW costume we all saw last week. “I was like, let me get any old thing and that was the any old thing,” she tells New York radio station Power 105.1. That’s one way to put it!

Nicki’s Sexy Costume: A Last-Minute Choice?

If our friends came home with a cop costume like Nicki’s, we might question their choices. But the recently self-proclaimed King (and Queen) of New York — and formerly self-proclaimed Barbie — was more than happy to don the shocking get-up, as it all just fits in to that signature Nicki Minaj look.

“I’ve just been feeling a lot freer,” Nicki says of the revealing Instagram post. “If you feeling yourself, you might just want to show the world.”

Nicki’s Halloween: Should She Have Gone As Miley?

Surprise, surprise — you can add Nicki to the long list of celebs who were at least considering going as Miley last week. Before donning her well-received Lil’ Kim costume on Thursday, Miley played dress-up on Wednesday with some token Nicki looks. Nicki, of course, was impressed, and told Ryan Seacrest on Oct. 30 that she was considering returning the favor.

“I think I’m gonna go as Miley Cyrus because she’s going as me, and I just saw her picture on Twitter,” she said. “Should I do the short, blond cut like Miley?”

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Did you dig Nicki’s sexy cop gear, or would you have liked to see the cheetah, or even the Miley?
