We always knew Nicki Minaj was a true one-off, and now the pink haired superstar has had a one-of-a-kind Barbie doll made in her likeness. Listen carefully and you can hear the collective squeals of Minaj’s superfans, affectionately know as the Barbz. “It shows that my Barbz are special, and everyone loves them as much as I love them, so I want to thank them most importantly,” said Nicki. The Nicki Minaj Barbie doll will be auctioned for charity with all the proceeds going to Project Angel Food, a charity that provides food for men, woman and children affected by HIV and AIDS.
