Nicki Minaj knows how to get noticed.

A protege of rapper Lil Wayne, the outrageous rapper stormed onto the music scene with her bold fashion statements, musical alter egos and fans called Barbies. The pink promoting pint-sized diva often wears eye-catching get-ups and gravity-defying wigs. One of the singer's most shocking stunts was at the 2012 Grammys, when she arrived in a nun-inspired crimson Versace cape paired with a fake Pope on her arm, which led into an exorcism-themed performance.     

Minaj's 2010 debut album Pink Friday introduced the world to her signature rap style made of a stew of characters with distinct voices, offering a freaky dose of entertainment on each track. Yet it was the most pop-friendly single "Super Bass" that became the biggest hit. Following Pink Friday's success, Minaj released her sophomore album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded with the club-ready "Starships" as the lead single.

And it's not just Minaj's music that makes headlines, but the Barbie babe also has a knack for feuding. She shot down comparisons to Lady Gaga, and her lengthy beef with rapper Lil' Kim was epic. She served as a judge during season 12 of American Idol, and Nicki famously didn't see eye-to-eye with fellow judge Mariah Carey.
