shes got influence

You knew it all along…



shes got influence 2As Nicki Minaj fans will attest, the hot rap diva/actress holds major influence on the hairstyle and entertainment scene. Witness the fantastical, Technicolor wigs that put her on the trend map followed by her dramatic “makeunder” coif of sleek blonde lengths detailed with darker roots—and a myriad of hairstyles in between. Her coif choices have never failed to entertain and influence the hair fashion scene. And then, of course, there’s Nicki’s crown as one of the hottest MCs to ever pick up a mic plus her foray into films (her latest: the newly released “Barbershop: The Next Cut” from the popular movie franchise).

So, for longtime Nicki followers, it wasn’t a surprise when Time magazine named Nicki among its “Time 100” list released today. The gorgeous superstar’s face is gracing one of six Time covers featuring the magazine’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Congrats Nicki! It’s about time.
