Nicki Minaj has revealed she was once asked not to wear her signature pink wig for a magazine cover photoshoot. However, when the white entertainer (Billie Eilish) dyed her hair green, her style statement was celebrated by the same outlets.
During her conversation with Joe Budden on his podcast, the bang bang The rapper opened up about her experience as a black woman in the fashion industry.
“Everyone knew me for wearing pink wigs,” she shared. “You would think that the greatest rapper of all time, who set so many trends, would have graced the cover of American Vogue, but that’s not the case,” Minaj added, referring to herself.
“They always asked me not to wear pink hair. But I would see Katy Perry on the cover with pink hair, and I would see Lady Gaga on the cover with pink hair. I came into the game with pink hair” , she told the famous media personality.
Speaking of the Bad Guy hitmaker, the one-year-old hip-hop entertainer said, “She’s successful. She is beautiful. She’s got everyone wearing a certain hairstyle — I know I love her, and when she does those covers, they’re gorgeous.”
Minaj said she felt it was important to shed some light on the disparity. “The reason you have to mention it, y’all, is because when we don’t mention it, we get erased. They act like it didn’t happen,” she said.
