From black lipstick and a psychedelic bodysuit to towering Versace boots with platinum green hair, "Everyday, I wake up and know who I want to be," the always fashion-forward MC Nicki Minaj  says, "and then they make me into that girl." Right after her ferociously evident talent on mic, the thing Minaj is best known for is her fearless fashion sense. It's not enough for her to just look good, she always takes it a step further turning her truly unique clothing and cosmetic choices into another thing about her that gets everyone talking. With her debut album, "Pink Friday," out today and her very own MAC lipstick hitting stores on Nov. 26, we got Nicki on camera to school us on the stories behind ten of her most outrageous outfits. Watch her talk about them in the video above -- from her wardrobe malfunction at the sweet 16 of Diddy's son Justin to the peach pantsuit that made both Katy Perry and Rihanna feel her up -- then check out the photo gallery (also above) to see each of the outfits up close.
