Nicki Minaj is never one to err on the side of caution ... and apparently neither is her stuffed animal.
But WTF is that? Minaj descended the VMA Pre-Show escalator channeling her Harajuku Barbie alter ego in an outfit that could only be described as eclectic. Minaj layered a shiny, structural purple bodice with a frothy tutu under-pinning. Accessories ran the gamut from a chunky, soft-serve ice cream necklace to layers of cartoon-covered socks, leg warmers and slippers. She topped off the look with a Japanese face mask and a mop of blond, red, yellow and orange locks.
