Happy 32nd Birthday, Nicki Minaj!
Happy birthday, Nicki Minaj! The outspoken female rapper turns 32 today. After the release of her debut studio album in 2010, Pink Friday, she was the first female solo artist to have seven singles simultaneously charting on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and won Billboard’s 2011 Rising Star Award. In August, she released the video to her single "Anaconda," which had record-breaking views in the first 24 hours (19.6 million views), beating out Miley Cyrus's video for "Wrecking Ball."
The performer has an impressive resume--with eight BET Awards, five Billboard Music Awards, four American Music Awards, and two MTV Video Music Awards, she's easily one of the most influential female singers. She's also dabbled in other projects, including a small role in The Other Woman with Cameron Diaz, a collaboration with MAC Cosmetics, as well as serving as a judge on the 12th season of American Idol. Next up for Minaj? Her new album, The Pinkprint, drops December 15th. Here's to another record-breaking year!
