Nicki Minaj has herself a new toy … well, new toys actually. This week, she proudly showed off her brand new custom painted pink Bentley on the streets of LA on the very day that Mattel announced the limited edition release of a Nicki Minaj Barbie doll. So while Nicki is off playing with her new car, her fans can play with Barbie Minaj dolls to their heart’s content. Click below to see photos of Nicki‘s new ride as well as the first promo photo released of the new Nicki Minaj Barbie doll.
Paris Hilton made waves last year when she was spotted driving one through Beverly Hills. And [Wednesday] night, Nicki Minaj was also spotted driving a pink ‘Barbie Bentley’ to the Grammy awards concert. Accompanied by her boyfriend Safaree who sat in the passenger seat, the hot new vehicle managed to get the 28-year-old singer plenty of attention as she drove up to The Nokia Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles. The bright pink vehicle even matched the singer’s pink wig. According to showbiz website TooFab, the singer is calling the car her ‘Barbie Bentley,’ which is perhaps appropriate given that she was also wearing a vintage Barbie jacket at the wheel. ‘Vintage barbie jacket. Ya luv it?!!’ she wrote on Twitter last night, while posting a picture of her with her jacket on next to the car.
Sucks that a guy with no genitals is about to get a shot with Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry … because TMZ has learned they are both about to become Barbie Dolls!! Sources close to the plastic factory tell TMZ … Mattel has already begun production on a Nicki doll and and a Katy doll. We’re told Nicki’s doll will include “every signature detail, right down to the tattoo on Nicki’s left arm.” The Nicki doll will be available on Dec. 7 — and proceeds will benefit the Project Angel Food organization.
OMG … I love this so much. The car is SO over the top … and SO fitting for a popstar like Nicki Minaj. I can’t say I’m too fond of the Pepto Bismol color, to be honest, but with Nicki behind the wheel — it kinda works. As for the Barbie doll, well, it’s just too perfect. Nicki already refers to her female fans as Barbz so her love of all things Barbie is very well known. I am so glad that Mattel decided to turn Nicki into her very own Barbie doll. Everything about all of this is so outrageous … I just LOVE it!
