Ellen DeGeneres Does Halloween Show Dressed As Nicki Minaj: Best Celebrity Costume Ever?

November 1st, 2013 9:45pm EDT
Ellen DeGeneres as Nicki Minaj for Halloween 2013
Ellen DeGeneres has unofficially officially won the 2013 celebrity Halloween costume contest.

The daytime TV host surprised viewers Thursday by showing up wearing a very revealing Nicki Minaj costume.

Ellen's costume was nearly an exact replica of the outfit Minaj wore on her show in late September -- complete with fake boobs.

"I got the whole look down," she told the audience. "I even have the same shoes on. I think I do -- I can't see my feet -- but I think I do.

"I normally don't wear things this sexy, but when you dress as Nicki Minaj you have to. So here are my boom booms and my su...

Dominatrix Nicki Minaj Nearly Bares All In Pasties & Fishnets On Halloween

November 1st, 2013 10:30am EDT
Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj let it all hang out on Halloween in a racy, bondage-like costume. The singer nearly bared all in fishnets, pasties and a studded leather harness around her chest.

She also donned thigh-high vinyl boots and wore handcuffs clipped to her leather-clad bottoms. The singer posted the selfies on Instagram.

Perhaps she's a fan of "Fifty Shades of Grey?"

It isn't the first time Minaj, 30, has showed off her curves on the social networking website. In mid October she flaunted her gigantic breasts covered by star-shaped, leopard-print pasties. The week prior, she bared her booty in a y...

Nicki Minaj Poses Topless With Animal Print Pasties

October 17th, 2013 10:00pm EDT
Nicki Minaj pasties
Nicki Minaj is letting it all hang out in new photos she posted on Instagram today. The singer, 30, showed off her gigantic breasts covered by star-shaped, leopard-print pasties.

Wearing a string of gold chains, she captioned one image: "Should I add #Pasties to the Spring Collection????"

Minaj just created a clothing line for Kmart, and we have a feeling the company probably wouldn't include pasties in its inventory.

In another image, Minaj writes: "Putting this one on a T-Shirt."

The rapper has a history of posting provocative images online. Last week she flaunted her booty in a yello...

Nicki Minaj Flaunts Her Booty In A Yellow Thong Bikini, Debuts New Kmart Collection

Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj posted a pair of selfies to her Instagram page, showing off her iconic derriere while squatting in a yellow thong bikini.

"Have a nice day," she wrote.

Nicki actually posted the images in February, but for some reason uploaded to her Instagram page once again on Monday. Perhaps she was seeking a little attention as she's been somewhat out of the spotlight this fall after departing American Idol.

But the rapper does have something up her sleeve -- a new collection for Kmart. Nicki shared a behind the scenes video from a recent photo shoot for the Nicki Minaj Collection, in whi...

Gluteus Maximus: A Salute To The Sexy Celebrity Booty

With the immortal words from 20th century poet Sir Mix-a-Lot "I like big butts and I cannot lie," the crack research team at Starpulse was given the arduous and grueling task of finding the finest photos on the site that revere one of the world's preferred body parts, the buttocks.

In contemporary music and in Hollywood today, starlets and singers who refrain from eating are considered to be the definition of beauty and grace; but many prefer more curvier women -- those with a little "junk in the trunk".

The great French Dadaist Marcel Duchamp put it best when he painted a moustache on a ...

Nicki Minaj Plagiarized Starships: Did Nicki  Minaj copy a song? She has been sued by electronic artist Clive Tanaka for copying his 2011 song Neu Chicago for her hit single Starships.

Verdict: They are similar. Tanaka may have a case when he heads to court. However, the music progression in question is fairly simplistic and is only a handful of notes repeated ad nauseam. Tanaka's lawyer said, "We beli...

Nicki Minaj is urging rapper Gucci Mane, real name Radric Davis, to check himself into a rehab center.

Mane made some off-key comments about Minaj via Twitter on Monday, including alleging that the two had slept together. He also went on the offensive against his label, Atlantic Records, and other stars like Waka Flocka Flame, Drake and Ciara, the latter of whom he also insinuated he slept with.

But the "Starships" singer quickly denied his allegations, writing on Twitter, "May God strike me dead if I ever had sex wit that man... N**ga da way ya ugliness is set up... crackhead. Jesus stri...

Thanks to stars like Miley Cyrus and Nicki Minaj, "twerk" has found a home in the Oxford Dictionaries Online.

The official entry reads as such: "Twerk, v.: dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance."

Nicki Minaj left little to the imagination on Wednesday when she posted a topless photo of herself to her Instagram page.

The 30-year-old singer's hair was strategically placed to keep the snapshot rated PG. She captioned the photo with just a 'fist' icon.

Nicki also posted some selfies earlier in the week while wearing a very colorful Alexander McQueen dress that resembled a stained glass window. The singer showed off her sexy curves in a side-profile shot with the message, "Do it like this," and a few others, simply captioned with the hashtag "#aLexanderMcQueen".

The R&B songstress hailing from Atlanta, Georgia is back again slamming us with her fifth album since her debut back in 2004. I am talking about none other than the “Goodies” singer, herself! Ciara has seen many ups and downs in her career, but her newest song “I’m Out feat. Nicki Minaj” is definitely rising fast! “Ladies it’s your song” are the lyrics that start of this club-banger and for all the rest of the ladies out there, I’ve named “I’m Out” as this week’s Pop Topper of the Week!

No, Ciara doesn’t go at this song alone. She and her new bestie, Nicki Minaj, have teamed up again (what...

'American Idol' Ratings At An All-Time Low As Producers Consider Big Changes

May 17th, 2013 1:07pm EDT
American Idol
Despite a grab for ratings by playing up a feud between Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj, viewers have refused to tune in to American Idol's finale performances this season.

The new judges - Carey, Minaj, and Keith Urban - are probably on their way out along with veteran Randy Jackson after a mere 11.57 million American viewers tuned in to watch the 12th season finalists duel it out.

Compared to the 11th season, the show has lost over 2 million viewers. The rating last year was a 4.2, compared to Wednesday's 2.9 score.

One of the reasons for the drop in ratings may be the strength of Candice...

This is it. This is the last one.

For years, I’ve been recapping the cultural touchstone that is the finale of ‘American Idol’ with the classic mega-diary treatment: A blow-by-blow recap of everything that went down on TV’s biggest night.

At least it used to be. Once Upon a Time only the Oscars and Super Bowl drew more viewers than this night, but the last couple year it’s viewership has slowly degraded to the point where one of this season’s results shows got beat out in the ratings by a repeat of ‘The Big Bang Theory.’

That’s enough to prove that the ‘Idol’ finale just isn’t anywhere c...

Rumors are circulating that there will be a major shake up on "American Idol" next season. Are judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Randy Jackson and Keith Urban all on the chopping block?

With only three contestants left on this season's singing competition, Mariah has been taking her role very seriously. However, it's most likely that she won't be returning. Her bland judging style hasn't made a very good impression on network execs or fans.

'American Idol' Recap: Signs Of Life From The Final Three

Angie Miller performs on AMERICAN IDOL
It seems the theme of the past few weeks has been that of three “D’s”: Depressing, Dreary and Dull.

For weeks on end, the three remaining girls chose ballads for each performance. Dreadfully boring ballads that did little to entertain or really enhance their voices in any way. Just sad bits of beauty that are great for singers to mess around, but don’t show anything artistically about the type of singer the contestant could be or what they would record.

All the song choices serve is vanity as they’ve allowed each contestant to do as much vocal gymnastics as possible without having to worr...

Bush said, "I've just about had it with her... She's so rude and so indignant." 

Minaj responded back via Twitter, "The audacity of you to call me nasty with your one-sided journalism. That's what you ppl do."
