Nicki Minaj is making it reign on the newsstand, following up last month's VIBE and New York magazine with the April 2012 cover of Allure magazine

“The hair is fake, she’s real” the magazine declares on the front, which features Minaj in her signature pieces: a big wig, pink lips and a colorful costume-y outfit with a dash of sex appeal. She told Allure she’s working on her own fashion line (we can only imagine what that would look like) and fragrance. “I like scents that feel summer-y, but have a va-va-voom [factor]. I want to smell like a sexy and confident woman, not like candy,” she told The Young Money star’s next album, “Roman Reloaded,” is currently due in stores April 3 and she even lends her voice to a small role in the upcoming cartoon movie Ice Age 4 (in theaters July 13).

Nicki told writer Judith Newman, "I had a little conversation with Jay-Z at the Victoria's Secret fashion show. He said, 'Congratulations on all your success.' And I was like, 'Yeah, I'm coming for you. I'm coming for your spot, Mr. Mogul.'"
