Gravity-defying hair in an assortment of colours is just the latest of Nicki Minaj's style statements as she takes the celebrity world by storm.
The first female singer to top the Billboard rap charts unaccompanied by another performer since 2002, Nicki has become known as much for her quirky fashion as for her strong singing voice.
Speaking to Elle magazine recently about her weird and wonderful dress sense, the 26-year-old described how she draws her inspiration from living in Jamaica.
The pop sensation said: "I tend to like booties and really flashy shoes - totally studded out, in five colours with an insane platform."
