Nicki's Controversies
Nicki Minaj's many controversial moments.
Whether she’s channeling her alter ego Roman Zolanski or just being her plain Barbz self, Nicki Minaj is always dressed to the nines.

The “Starships” rapper, who turns the big 3-0 on Saturday, is notorious for her wild and daring fashion. From gothic-inspired ball gowns — complete as a man dressed as the Pope as her “arm candy” — to colorful bustier bras, Minaj has held nothing back as she struts her stuff in the most outrageous fashions.

Though she’s been spotted over the years in skin-tight suits and cleavage-baring garbs, the “Super Bass” singer insists that she wears clothes only for comfort.

“I have so many scars on my body from clothes that ruined my arms and stomach, so one of the biggest things for me is being comfortable,” she revealed in a interview with Reuters this year. “I don’t like to do the norm but I do like to be comfortable.”

To celebrate her birthday, Celebuzz is taking a look back at 30 years of Minaj’s most outrageous looks.
