Nicki Minaj graces the cover of ‘New York Times Magazine’ for ‘The Culture Issue,’ and she looks electric and unique, as usual. She rocks a platinum white wig and bright yellow eyeshadow. What do you guys think? Do you love or loathe her look? VOTE.

Nicki Minaj, 32, is on the cover of New York Times Magazine and in true Nicki style, she has a short white bob, electric yellow eyeshadow, and a bright pink lip. Sometimes we just don’t really get Nicki’s beauty looks, but what do you guys think? Do you love or loathe her look? VOTE.

Nicki looked amazing in the photoshoot, where she is decked out in different color wigs — white and bright red, all done by famous hairstylist, Oscar James. For the cover she donned bright yellow eyeshadow with extremely thick black eyeliner, making her eyes pop.

When she was asked by the reporter about being confident in her looks as a child, she responded, “Hell, no! Now, I want to take steps to become more aware of who I am, what I like or dislike about my body — why is that?” She also told the reporter how she was insecure on Instagram, “where everyone is freaking drop-dead gorgeous.”

She also talks about editing pics on Insta, (our forte!), “I get that people put filters on their pictures — I definitely use filters — but I didn’t know people retouched.” She also talks about how her friend “cleaned all the sweat off our face. We’re in a club! We can have a moist, dewy-looking face.” We have to admit, we are totally guilty of this!

We love Nicki and we love how eccentric she always looks, but is this makeup too much? VOTE.
