Nicki Minaj is joining the ranks of other business savvy celebrities and launching her own fragrance. Entitled Pink Friday, the fragrance is supposed to bring every aspect of Nicki Minaj’s image into perfume form. Even the bottle resembles the Young Money rapper as it sports a pink wig, pink lipstick, and gold “Nicki Minaj” necklace. True to form, the commercial is very colorful and more importantly, very pink. The video opens up with a very glamorous Nicki Minaj lying down in what appears to sea of black roses, but that doesn’t last long after her finger is pricked and her pink blood makes everything around her pink, including the roses.
She also sports pink contact lenses and her upcoming single “Freedom” plays in the background as she herself morphs into a what appears to be a glittery pond of some sort.
Nicki Minaj claims that a fragrance has been something she’s wanted to do for two years. She tells MTV News:
“I’ve been thinking about [a fragrance] for like, the last two years actually; I knew I was going to call it Pink Friday. I didn’t know I would have a pink wig on the bottle until I met with the fragrance company and they asked me what I wanted my bottle to look like and I said — is there any way we can put a pink wig on it?”
