The Fourth of July has come early this year, as Nicki Minaj unveils her new photoshoot with Terry Richardson for Rolling Stone.
Minaj, 32, is clad in a studded, patriotic trucker’s hat, an Old Glory tank top– and not much else! Nothing we haven’t seen before, however.
Terry Richardson, the famed, 49-year-old fashion photographer, has previously worked with Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, GQ, Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar, among others. You can see more of Nicki’s Rolling Stone photoshoot and admire his other work on his blog.
Minaj looks stunning in the photoshoot and is unafraid to show off the desirable curves of that voluptuous, American flag-clad figure. She is currently enjoying critical success for her December 2014 album The Pinkprint. The album, which is her third, shows off a more emotional and vulnerable Minaj than the typical glitter-booty-and-pop Nicki that is usually rubbed in our faces. That doesn’t make it any less sexualized than the Minaj we’re used to, though.
Is Nicki doing a little growing up? Still, she looks youthful, beautiful, and playful in the latest shoot.
We’d pledge allegiance to that body! Check out some of the other shots below:
She’ll make you proud to be an American! Check out the hot photos here.
