This is why you should never sell a car to Nicki Minaj
Let's start by saying this creative expression has nothing to do with breast cancer awareness month or any other moral cause. No, rapper Nicki Minaj painted her $400,000 Lamborghini Aventador (and its Forgiato wheels) her trademark shade of pink because it's, like, totally blazin', or something — and it goes with her pink Bentley and pink Range Rover.
Note to self: Never, ever sell a car to Nicki Minaj. Unless you want it comprehensively ruined.
Minaj debuted the PeptoBismol-ador earlier this week during the launch of her eponymous clothing line for Kmart. And there's certainly something fashionable about the the angry angles of the 700-hp Aventador, which have become a favorite among celebrity car customizers from Chris Brown to Kanye West, let alone the glow-in-the-dark variation seized by London police earlier this year.
But the real question here is: Why would anyone do this? I know from personal experience about the attention driving a pink car in public settings can bring; it's not for the faint of heart or for those who care strongly about the opinions of others. Minaj's own lyrics might answer the "why would you" question best:
"I am Nicki Minaj, I mack them dudes up. Back coupes up and chuck the deuce up."
Perhaps painting her cars pink has helped court the gentlemen? And I have no idea what that second line means.
