What am I loving? Nikki Minaj.

Happy Wednesday all! Today I'm feeling perky and like I'm finally taking care of some business. Last night I was super productive, this morning I realized I've lost .8 lbs in the last day and I've crushed my morning to-do list. Watch out world!

So, as a treat for gettin' er done, I'm going to participate in this linkup with frivolous dreams of pop greatness that have no real consequence...my favorite kind of dreams.

Link up with Jamie HERE.

So, what AM I loving today? 
Nicki Minaj

This isn't really news, but lately I've really been relishing in her total badassness. I've just learned she'll be touring with Britney and Ke$ha this summer and I think I have to go. Have to. She was just on tour with Lil Wayne, which would have been super fun, but I was busy celebrating some bride somewhere. Typical.

I'm trying to think of a way I can channel her style, and it may be impossible to replicate. I do have a couple of ideas...surprises. Here's just a taste, taste of the awesomesauce that is the Minaj...

Marie Antionette + 80's bodysuuit. WOW. In general I think I need more bodysuits. Also, I'd wear that space dress in a second (maybe not.)

These sparkle eyes are something I'm trying to incorporate when appropriate. Turns out, it's pretty hard to pull off. Shocker.

Hi. Awesome.

 All the frills aside, she is really beautiful.

Green? Rad.

Now, most of her rap is pretty rap-tastic...it has bad words and can be kind of raunchy, but her overall message is something of female empowerment. Her whole struggle has been to make it in the legitimate rap world, which is pretty sexist and tough to break into. But she's trying. One of my favorite lyrics:
"I'm not a word. I'm not a line. I'm not a girl that can be defined."
...and neither am I, gosh darnit. Many more quotes, here. Go check out her music, but brace yourself, its definitely NSFW.

Anyway, I'm loving Ms. Minaj this Wednesday.
