Remember a few weeks back when Nicki Minaj announced not one but two new perfumes within a 24-hour span? She made her debut on HSN last night to hawk the fragrances on live television and it was spectacular. In addition to selling bust-shaped bottles, Nicki took the opportunity to give her fans—who stayed up all night to place their orders—valuable life advice like "put your best foot forward," "always be independent," and the classic ol' "stay in school." At one point, her co-host actually got so choked up she started crying? It was very late at night, I dunno.

If you watched, like, one minute of the BET Awards Red Carpet coverage, you know it's hot in L.A. The best way to cool down if you're too hot? Forgo a shirt! Just ask Nicki Minaj–she performed at the show in a shirt (IDK if that's what to call it, TBH) made from gold chains. Her hair was long, wavy, and strategically placed. When riding a motorcycle inside you have to take precautions, OK? This is a PG-rated show.

Exotic Minajesty is coming.

Usually when an artist releases a perfume it's tied to their album release, but in Nicki Minaj's case, her upcoming The Print Print means she has TWO different perfumes on the way: Onika and an "exotic edition" of Minajesty. (TBH, we wouldn't expect anything less from a woman who makes a portmanteau of her name and a royal title.)

I didn't go to sleep last night until well after 4 a.m., and it's not just because I had to finish the seaosn-two finale of Orange Is The New Black (although that certainly was part of it). Nicki Minaj promised a Monday night release for her "Pills N Potions" video, and I was NOT about to miss that extremely important moment. And while I might have ghastly dark circles under my eyes now, I can confidently say that it was totally worth it.

After Nicki released a teaser of the video late last week, we just KNEW the full video would be amazing. (I mean, the 45-second clip already featured seven different looks.) The final product contains a perfect mix of stripped down and crazy—which also describes Nicki's current personal style, TBH. Who else could pull off subtle Alice in Wonderland imagery AND pasties over the course of a few minutes? Nobody, that's who.

Nicki Minaj's "Pills N Potions" video is coming, y'all. She just posted a 45-second teaser on YouTube and, dang, we have a lot to look forward to. In under a minute we're treated to seven looks–I mean, how many could the full video possibly have, 40? We'll find out on Monday when the full thing drops, but until then, we can discuss what's in store.

First up is a sheer white shirt, nude stiletto nails, and an e-cigarette (don't try at home, kids). Also, because her eyes are closed, you get a full sense of just how expertly her eyeliner is applied. The application process deserves a video of its own (hint hint, Nicki).

Bringing back the pasties.

Recently, Nicki Minaj has been keeping her look subdued. She's worn floor-length gowns to events in lieu of, like, a billion stuffed animals and has been favoring simple hair to wigs. She even—it seems—was so done with her wigs that she gave them to Rihanna. While we've enjoyed Nicki's new ~lewk~, we'd by lying if we said we didn't miss her old one. Well, good news—last night she brought back one of her former fave accessories: pasties!

Nicki performed at Hot 97 Summer Jam (and hung out with Rih, #JEALZ) wearing some silver star pasties and a completely sheer chain mail shirt. Nicki has been a longtime fan of pasties, but this is the first time we can think of that she's ever worn them on stage. She's worn them in videos, in the comfort of her own home, and on Halloween, but never as, like, an integral part of her outfit. It makes sense, though, considering how much she hates bras.

"Can Young Money borrow a cup of sugar?"

So Nicki Minaj just posted a series of selfies on Instagram, where she looks fresh-faced and all natural on set with the abbrev "WYD"? What we doing, Nicki? Well, we been speculating. Our girl has been rocking the red carpet circuit with a succession of looks that are subtle, chic, and sophisticated. Instead of the cartoonish couture of yesteryear, Minaj has been wearing her natural hair instead of wigs and toned down makeup. This might be a response to her becoming a bonafide mainstream movie star, or maybe reflecting a profound sense of maturity that comes with the sense of her junior release, currently titled The Pink Print. Nicki's returning back to her hip-hop roots both musically and visually, and if her "Lookin' Ass" video is anything to go by, this might be a continuation of that.

What this low-key look is for, we still don't know. Minaj revealed in the caption of one of the photos that she's shooting a video, but that's it. That's it and we need more. I wish she'd just give me the deetz and, more important, drop a new video into my life. But if that can't happen, maybe she'd tell me where she got those clear-heeled wedges she posted two days so I can cop a pair for myself. Those are most certainly not low-key.

OK. We are officially obsessed with Nicki Minaj's newly subtle and sophisticated style. Remember how perfectly beautiful she looked at the MTV Movie Awards this year? (I, personally, haven't been able to forget.) She decided to take a similar route at the premiere for her new movie The Other Woman last night, and we got deja vu in ALL the right ways. Her cream-colored, knitted Alexander McQueen dress was just as discreetly striking and conservative as the black McQueen from a couple weeks ago. Maybe even MORE SO, what with its unique texture and neckline and all.

MTV Movie Awards 2014, Nicki Minaj

Over the last year or so, Nicki Minaj has abandoned her outrageous Harajuku style and rainbow reverie of wigs in favor of more demure, adult garments. While her style chutzpah was something we greatly admired, we cannot overstate how totally HERE FOR HER we are now, as she transitions into a more sophisticated, grown-woman style. And while her silver-screen debut isn't until the forthcoming Cameron Diaz/Leslie Mann/Kate Upton vehicle, The Other Woman, a rom-com that's probably not going to win any Oscars (just a guess), her 2014 MTV Movie Awards look includes so much statuesque, Grecian beauty it's almost like we've glimpsed into her future as an award-winning actress as well as top rapper.

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