The new queen of rap now "owns pink," according to hairstylist Terrence Davidson, who works with the 'Super Bass' singer on her wigs. She is a vision in a cotton candy beehive concoction, lavender lips, a pastel blue top and bright purple gloves. She looks like an Easter basket come to life. While many women avoid color and stick to safer, more neutral palettes, Minaj embraces the brighter side of life.
