I disagree, Nikki is a beautiful girl that they made ugly on this cover.
To think that the person on that elle is this person

Not a fan and don't really know much about her, but it's nice to see her "normal."

She looks really beautiful on that V cover (and not over the top at all), but I actually really like this Elle cover too... i can't help it :p

We love us some Nicki Minaj! She's the only one with a personality on "Idol" this season, as far as I'm concerned. Great to see her on the cover!

The mood is sad but I actually love it. Nicki has grown on me. And her new style is so much classier than before.

O.M.G. Always thought she was pretty under all that drag queen makeup, but who knew she is actually so gorgeous? She is stunning, so exotic! Look at her eyes, her lips, simply stunning.

I am admittedly drawn to Nicki Minaj as an artist. You can't deny, that woman thinks in beatnik prose - she is fiercely intelligent behind a crafty facade, and she's totally doing that on purpose otherwise who would 'get' her? In terms of her Elle Cover; come on. If you're going to call it stripped down then you need to literally STRIP it down. Don't give a false perception of the 'Real Nicki Minaj', give us the real girl OR continue to give us the girl you want us to think she is. This in between doesn't give me what I want which is an extreme - one way or the other. My $.02

^While I totally understand what you mean and wholeheartedly agree with you somehow (I'm not that familiar with Mademoiselle Minaj yet I had the very same feeling towards other characters that weren't "portrayed right"), I was looking at this cover (and editorial for that matter) from another point of view. It might be "in between" in terms of Nicki Minaj but surely not in terms of mainstream magazine cover and fashion story when you have a look (a quick one only and you might get the whole point) at what's being published these days. Rare are the visuals going, even slightly, off the beaten tracks. So, despite this won't stay in my book as the most memorable printed fashion moment of the decade (or this year or even month to keep it at a decent scale), I'm still relieved we've got some sweet little cheesy and tacky stuff to binge our eyes with every now and then.
