Nicki Minaj Literally Can't See the Haters

How her new look is keeping her sane.

Published March 3, 2017

Three weeks ago, Ms. Onika Tanya Maraj posted a scintillating 'fit on the 'Gram. The look, strong by normal people's outfit standards but not shocking for Minaj, prominently featured latex boots, a vision-obstructing visor, more latex, and not much else. This piece of evidence serves as exhibit A. Three weeks ago, we were all a bit more naive. We could not have known this was the dawn of a new era: one in which Nicki expressly wears boots and visors.

 

But in the time since, Minaj has provided plenty of fodder to suggest that this is her go-to breakup look: namely, seven more pieces of evidence that conclusively corroborate this theory. A week after exhibit A, we were blessed with exhibit B, yet another strong look comprised of, you guessed it, boots and visors. Exhibit B serves as a turning point in this investigation; from then on, both the sheer volume and intensity of the looks saw a severe uptick. 

Two weeks and five more boots and visor 'fits later, we have more questions than we do answers. Does Nic's new look suggest a new persona is brewing? Is she spending so much time arranging boots and visor 'fits that she hasn't gotten a chance to respond to Remy? Are these eight pieces of evidence, below, just the beginning?

Perhaps the visor enables her to be Ray Charles to the BS. Which, given her current situation, is actually a clever tactic.

Below, in reverse chronological order, all the comprehensive evidence that suggest her new, directional go-to look is here to stay. Case closed. Bring in the dancing lobsters.
