Nicki Minaj has been named as the new spokesperson for MAC cosmetics' 2012 Viva Glam campaign along with singer Ricky Martin. In the recently released promotion photo, shot by David LaChapelle, the "Super Bass" star is dressed in a tight hot pink dress, decked in bangles and perched on a motorcycle while Martin wields a giant MAC lipstick over his head.

The campaign will officially launch in February with every cent from MAC Viva Glam lipstick and lip gloss sales going towards the MAC AIDS fund.

This isn't the rap singer's first collaboration with the makeup brand. Last December, Minaj and MAC released a limited-edition Pink Friday lipstick in honor of her debut album. But the singer seems just as excited to partner with them a second time around.

"Barbz, check out my #MACVivaGlam photo w/@ricky_martin on Facebook! Lipstick's out in Feb - buy 1 save a life!" Minaj tweeted last Thursday.

In 2010, Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper raised over $32 million for the AIDS fund when they represented the campaign. Do you think this new pair will bring in more?
