Nicki Minaj has already announced that her sophomore album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, will be out on April 3 but today we get our first look at the official album cover for the album which Nicki released herself on her official Twitter profile. As you can see below, Nicki seems to have gotten a bit carried away with the fingerpaints … because she is wearing a multitude of colors on her face. Check out the album art in full below and see for yourselves.
You know … I love me some Nicki Minaj. I am usually very happy to champion the inventive and creative way she does things. Hell, I didn’t even really hate her truly bizarre Grammy Awards performance last month. But this album cover … Lord, no …it’s a mess. It’s literally a mess. Not only do I hate that she she is WASTING a huge opportunity by naming her second album Pink Friday again (dumb!) but this messy paintjob is just … not cute. I really hope Nick isn’t going to waste valuable real estate by featuring the album title like this on the final cover art because, yeah, it just looks dumb. I fear Nicki Minaj may have jumped the shark. She thinks at this point she can do whatever she wants and her fans will eat it up. My fear is that if she pushes fans away too far … she won’t ever get them back. I’m worried and unimpressed by this album art. What do you think?
