Ohhhh, hai, Nicki Minaj. Nice to see you all bright and cheerful at the 2011 VMAs! You got your hair all twisted up in a delicious pink and yellow swirl, your edgy (heh) metallic purple dress, lacy little skirt, thigh-high socks OVER star-printed tights, but WAIT. WHATSS'AT? Are you wearing a surgical mask, girl? *zooms in really close on photo* OH, my bad. It's a FASHION-Y surgical mask by one of her favorite Japanese designers as of late Shojono Tomo! Well, if you're going to avoid diseases this is probably THE CUTEST WAY possible to do it, right?! Although we don't think there's TOO much airborne illness flyin' around the venue, but HAY. We don't diss an overprotective girl.
