Nicki Minaj: My line appeals to all women

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj discussed her debut design range for Kmart which is crafted to appeal to "women in general".

The pop star has recently collaborated with US chain store Kmart on her own fashion range.

The American Idol judge is known for her wacky outfits, but says her collection has been crafted for all women to wear confidently.

"With me doing the clothing line now, it's like I definitely don't want people to think, 'Oh, well, she's only going to have crazy stuff in her line'," Nicki explained to Us Weekly. "I want them to know…I'm doing this for women in general, to feel beautiful and sexy, and all of these dresses that I've been wearing lately, any woman can wear it and feel confident."

Nicki has recently been toning down her outfits. She's also sported make-up in more neutral shades than we've seen before and admits this is a new style phase for her.

"It's just a more, I would say, a sensual, natural, sexier look. Like to me, I did the Harajuku stuff. I did the crazy stuff. And now I kind of want to tone that back, and it's not toning my personality back, it's just showing like I don't only have to do that," she continued.

Last week Nicki hit back at claims she has had plastic surgery. She says while she loves reinventing her image, she'd never go under the knife as the results can make you look like a man in drag.

"I've never had surgery on my face," Nicki told Extra. "They'll see contour and they'll think you had surgery on your nose…. Look at RuPaul’s Drag Race and you’ll see how you can make your nose look any shape you want."
