Nicki Minaj Lil Wayne

Nicki Minaj on set for the "Y.U. Mad" music video, and Lil Wayne at the 2009 BET Awards.

Yeah, we did a double take too—that's ACTUALLY Nicki Minaj, y'all. She ditched her typically skintight ensembles for a more tomboy look modeled after Lil Wayne himself. The two rappers shot the "Y.U. Mad" music video in Miami over the weekend, and Nicki sported blonde dreads with hot pink tips (in true Barbz fashion), a white tank, tons of diamond and platinum chains (including crosses just like Weezy!), a pair of loose camo shorts hanging low with her white boxers out (apparently Lil Wayne likes tighty-whities better, though. We don't judge), and THE Jeremy Scott X Adidas sneakers that Weezy famously wore first in public! Nicki posted a video in her Lil Wayne-inspired getup and completely transformed her bubbly personality into a chill character called "The Female Weezy." For the ENTIRE shoot, she acts like a female version of Lil Wayne by emulating his voice, personality, and style. It's kiinnddddd of REALLY amazing and hilarious, and her outfit and acting is SO on point. Um, someone give this girl an Oscar.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
