Nicki Minaj Titles Debut Album 'Pink Friday'
Nicki Minaj finally revealed the title of her highly anticipated debut album last night (Aug. 3), and legions of her fans joined her via Ustream for the reveal. "Pink Friday" will be out Nov. 23 on Young Money/Universal Motown.
"To carry on our great tradition of Black Friday, we are going to switch it up this year... in honor of the Nicki Minaj album and call that day pink Friday and call my album 'Pink Friday'," Nicki announced while clutching two stuffed animals.
Before announcing the album title, the Harajuku Barbie spent time -- two hours, to be exact -- chatting with all 14,000 of her fans that tuned in, calling some directly after asking them to post their phone numbers. Among other things, she talked about her Roman Zolanski alter ego and the tracks that will not make the album's final cut.
"People have been leaking s**t and taking vocals and putting it on wack-*ss beats and all this s**t, none of that s**t is off of my album and when something comes out that is off my album, I'll let you know," she clarified.
She also thanked MTV and her fans for her VMA nomination, pointing out she's especially grateful considering she hasn't released an album yet. "It's because I am the underdog - but you know what, I haven't put out an album and I'm nominated for a VMA. So I wanted to thank you guys for making that possible," she said.
Nicki Minaj ended the session by expressing her love for her fans and reminding them of the album's release date. "I love you guys very much, November 23, Pink Friday. It's Barbie, bitch!"
