    Nicki Minaj's Alter-Ego Style Guide
    Nicki Minaj recently released her latest track, "Roman in Moscow," tentatively set to appear on her sophomore album, <em>Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded</em>, due February 14, 2012. And apparently, the track is one of many appearances Roman, Nicki's aggressive alter-ego will make on the project — hence the title. <br /><br />But, as the Barbz are well aware of, Roman is just one of Nicki's personalities; there's also Barbie and Martha Zolanski, the latter who just so happens to be Roman's imaginary mother, and let's not forget the original HBIC, Nicki Minaj herself.<br /><br />With this in mind, <em>XXL</em> has imagined what the second, third and fourth and fifth selves of Nicki Minaj actually look like by pairing up an existing, pertinent photo of Nicki with a description of each of the alternating participants.<em>—Gina Montana</em>

    Do people really buy into this gimmick shit tho? Nothing against her, she’s doing her thing, whatever. But do people really have ways to justify this shit? She preys on the weak bigtime just like the rest of her crew.
