It's been a weird day, y'all. For some reason we just can't stop falling into the dark side of the internet (see: this), and when we heard the latest Nicki Minaj news, we knew it was officially time for the interwebs to call it quits. Everything started off so normal, too. Yesterday, Nicki tweeted, "UK Barbz, It's official. My Pink Friday fragrance launches @Selfridges on March 14th! I have something special 4U! Get ready #COUTUREBYMINAJ," to which we responded "YASSSS" out-loud directly at our computer screens. Then, she unveiled three Pink Friday perfume bottles (or so we thought) with new, decked-out designs. Now, if you haven't already seen her bottle, it's basically a gold bust of Ms. Minaj wearing a pink wig and white bustier. These new bottles had different ensembles than the original and were called "Duchess of Pink," "Starships Minaj," and "Whip It Like Minaj." So, we're like, "Oh! Cute! Three new limited-edition bottles will be sold exclusively at Selfridges starting mid March. Sweeeet." But, dear friends, we were so, so wrong.
