Nicki Minaj in Manila Philippines: Starships Up Close and Personal


When in Manila  — Nicki Minaj arrived at the press conference in a pink glitter cap, soft blue clouds tights and her gorgeous back. I was mesmerized with her looks. She resembles a unique barbie doll. It was held at the Diamond Hotel, July 11, 2012


Getting up close and personal with Nicki Minaj is a wonderful experience. The security was tight. Since there are also international bodyguards ensuring her safety. Photo taking is not allowed and we were even told that those caught taking pics would be escorted out…. however our WIM team took the courage to grab some photos so we can share with you guys.
