Nicki Minaj Performs on Today Show, Talks New Scent

August 14, 2012 By:

ANOTHER PERFUME. Yes, in the month now officially known as Album and Fragrance Release Month (formerly September), Nicki Minaj told Matt Lauer after her performance on The Today Show this morning that she will also be launching a scent with Macy’s next month in collaboration with Give Back Brands LLC.

“I went back and forth with my fragrance team at least 1000 times per picture, per commercial layout – everything. The fragrance is going to be out in September at Macy’s. I’m so excited for it. In a couple of days we’re actually going to show the bars the bottle and give them the name so I’m really super excited about it.” If the bottle isn’t shaped like a butt, she didn’t do it right.

Minaj performed “Pound the Alarm,” “Starships,” “I AM Your Leader,” and “Beez in the Trap,” for the Today show audience. Nicki’s performance was a little much for daytime television in that the latex red costumes and her hair/hair piece probably would have looked much better in dim lighting.

Tomorrow’s guest is Rob Pattinson, and if he also announces a new fragrance he’s been working sooo hard on, I’m quitting everything and launching a celebrity fragrance consulting agency.
