Nicki Minaj Brings 'Starships' to 'Today,' Talks New Fragrance (PHOTOS & VIDEO)
NBC’s TODAY concert series is bringing us an epic week of music after all their Olympic coverage. On Monday, they had The Fray and included in the lineup for the rest of the week are Carrie Underwood, Lionel Richie and the reunion of 98 Degrees.
On Tuesday it was Nicki Minaj’s turn to tear it up on Rockefeller plaza.
What songs did the rapper perform and what's next on her and her alter egos to do list?
Minaj killed it on stage in a red leather jumpsuit with her hits “Starships” and “Pound the Alarm.” Her alter ego Roman also made an appearance for her “gritty barbs in the audience” with a medley of “I Am Your Leader” and “Beez in the trap.”
Having just finished her international tour, Minaj’s next venture is into the world of cosmetics with a new fragrance set to debut in September at Macy’s.
She tells Matt Lauer she has been “very hands on” in the process.
“I went back and forth with my fragrance team at least 1000 times per picture, per commercial layout – everything. The fragrance is going to be out in September at Macy’s. I’m so excited for it. In a couple of days we’re actually going to show the bars the bottle and give them the name so I’m really super excited about it."
