Nicki The Barbie, Nicki Minaj Is Finally A Barbie

Since the beginning of her career Nicki Minaj has been calling herself a harajuku Barbie, but now she has a real Barbie to back up her statements. After noticing her contributions to music, the fashion industry, the Barbie world, and her persuasiveness on young girls the toy company Mattel has created a limited edition Nicki Minaj Barbie. A spokesperson for Mattel recently told reporters why they thought creating the Barbie was a good idea.

 “Barbie is obviously a pop culture icon. She’s been in the spotlight for over 50 years, and strikes that chord with girls of all ages in terms of being representative of the times. And Nicki is a big part of pop culture and also huge within the fashion industry, as well as a big Barbie fan. It’s really exciting for us that she’s been so generous to allow us to create this one-of-a-kind doll to support such an important cause.”

The first Nicki Minaj Barbie will be auctioned off for $1,000 for charity on December 7, 2011. The money will go to the organization Project Angel Food, which provides food for people living with HIV/AIDs.

As a Nicki Minaj fan would you pay $1,000 for a mini plastic version of her?
