I'm not sure if it's her music, her uncanny costume, or perhaps its her schizophrenic personae; but it seems like everyone is all about Onika Miraj. This month, the Harajuku *hyphen* Barbie covers V Magazine where she's Dia De Los Muertos-style body painted and dressed in designer garms from Mark Fast and Versace for an interview/editorial moment.

Fave Nicki quote:
"I don’t look at myself as a female rapper anymore...nothing I’m doing right now is expected if you look at the last five years of female rap.” 
Fave quote from the writer, Knox Robinson
"Her occasional missteps are applauded as signs of authenticity, and her only beef of note—a one-sided hate parade courtesy of Lil’ Kim—merely served to underscore the brittle, faded glamour of her antagonist." 
...Eloquently put, Knox - check out the teasers below.

I love Nicki! She has my respect as taking over the female rap/hip hop game, even though she doesn't consider herself a female rap star. She looks gorgeous in the photos, I need to find a V mag asap!
