Nicki Minaj Wanted To Look Like A Broken Barbie
The rapper's photographer talks about her album cover...
Female rapper Nicki Minaj is due to release her Pink Friday album next month and the eye-catching artwork for it was released last week.
According to photographer GL Wood, who shot the star for the album front cover, Minaj intentionally wanted to have her arms detached on the album cover.
He told VIBE Magazine: "Nicki wanted to rip her arms off to really do the whole Barbie theme, like when little girls trash their dolls. She wanted to look like one of those broken Barbies. When Pink Friday drops November 22, Woods says fans can expect album artwork featuring girly aesthetics and more of Minaj's never-ending legs.
“One idea Woods says he wished made it inside would've thrown her even more left-field.”I had an idea to cut up pieces of her and paste it back together. It still would kind of look like her, but it would be sliced apart and taped a little off centred."
