At the Hollywood premiere of “The Other Woman,” Nicki Minaj tones down her style with a makeunder. Is this her new look or just something she did for the movie premiere? Plus, what was it like working with Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann and Kate Upton? And, does Nicki want to continue acting?
Nicki Minaj rocked three different looks yesterday. For an afternoon of press interviews, she wore an Alexander McQueen black detail pencil skirt, and $1,935 Alexander McQueen spring 2014 buckled heels. Then, she turned heads that night at the Los Angeles premiere of The Other Woman, rocking a knitted Alexander McQueen dress that hugged every inch of her curves. Finally, a quick change into a Jean Paul Gaultier outfit with a white tube top and sarong bottom for the star-studded premiere after-party.

The Other Woman hits theaters April 25th!
There was a time when Nicki Minaj was defined as much by her image as by her bars by her many alter-egos, her outlandish costumes and hairstyles, and her tendency to break into a British accent (or, on occasion, into tongues).
But thats all over now.
Wearing a classic black number courtesy of Alexander McQueen on Monday, the Cash Money MC told MTV News that shes getting back to her roots both literally and figuratively.
"I went so far to the other side that theres only one place to go from there," Minaj told us while promoting "The Other Woman." "You can either continue doing costumes or you can just say, Hey guess what? This will shock them even more. Doing nothing will shock them even more."
The first sign of her transformation came at the start of 2013. After parting ways with her longtime hairstylist Terrence Davidson the man behind that leopard-print wig in “Fly” and her candy-colored beehive bun Nicki covered Elle in a more natural look her face nearly bare of makeup and her natural hair color peeking through the platinum blonde.
Fast-forward one year, and she showed up to the MTV Movie Awards in another black McQueen dress undoubtedly a deliberate departure from this.
Its all an effort, Nicki says, of “coming full circle,” and the transformation isnt just a physical one — as showcased on its aggressive lead singles like "Lookin Ass N—-a" and “Chi-Raq,” The Pink Print finds Nicki returning to her rap roots. In the two years since “Starships” topped the charts and Hot 97s Peter Rosenberg subsequently called it “wack” something changed.
"The tracks on Pink Print are back to my hip-hop roots. And I dont think its something that Im necessarily trying to do. As soon as I started working on my new album, thats just the songs that Ive been writing," she said, adding that not every track on the album is like "Lookin Ass" and "Chi-Raq."
In fact, she teased that shell have a track out next week that is “nothing like” them. “Im just gonna do what my heart tells me to do.”
So, does that mean we might hear something along the lines of “Starship” or the equally pop-friendly “Super Bass”?
In her words: “Hell no.”
Tyga, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne team up for the “Senile” video, the fourth release from the YMCMB compilation album, Rise of an Empire, which dropped on March 11. Directed by Colin Tilley, the trippy but comical video for the record features Tyga (who is smoking out with the hippies), Weezy (who joins a white family), and Nicki Minaj (who decides to hang with the eses on the playground). Birdman also makes a cameo towards the end of the video.
