Nicki & Ricky Team Up For New Viva Glam Campaign

In: Donovan, Fashion

Over the summer, MAC Cosmetics revealed that Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin would be the new faces for their VIVA GLAM ad campaign. The duo took over the reins from the Fame Monster herself, Lady Gaga. Martin becomes the third male to represent the brand following Elton John (2001) and Boy George (2004). Minaj on her part was brought on board after her limited release Pink Friday lipstick became an instant bestseller. The lipstick was sold for $14 during its initial sale, but can now be found on eBay for as much as $79.

With Martin’s recent coming out and impending wedding, and Minaj’s proven track record with the company, the decision to bring them on board to raise money for the company’s MAC AIDS Fund was a no-brainer. The foundation uses the monies raised to help with prevention, treatment and education of HIV and AIDS. Since the charity’s launch in 1994, an astonishing $224 million has been raised. No doubt, with Nicki and Ricky on board, that total will only rise.

MAC unveiled their first promo picture featuring their two new celebrity endorsers today. Shot by famed photographer David LaChapelle, the visual shows Minaj looking like an urban Harajuku Barbie on all fours riding a motorcycle, while Ricky Martin holds up a giant lipstick. Can’t get any butchier than that. LOL. The $14 lipsticks dubbed Viva Glam Ricky and Viva Glam Nicki will go on sale in February with 100% of the proceeds going to fight HIV and AIDS.

Madonna is back bitches. A while back, Patrick informed us all that Madge was working on some new music and now, we are being treated to a full listen of Madonna’s upcoming single. The latest leak is for the song Gimme All Your Love and it truly is a throw back to Madonna’s older sound which I LOVE! A big what up to Martin Solveig for doing what he does best. The lyrics ring out:

Give me all your love and give me your love
Give me all your love today
Give me all your love and give me your love
Let’s forget about time
And dance our lives away

In actuality, we won’t hear the track in it’s entirety until Madonna hits the stage at the Super Bowl on February 5 alongside Nicki Minaj and M.I.A.. We’ve also been told that Madonna will debut a total of 5 new songs from her upcoming album during the performance. Color me excited! Listen to Gimme All Your Love below.

Preview “Gimme All Your Love” after the jump.

Ever since Madonna started recording her twelfth album, there the rumor mill has been spinning. A couple things have been confirmed though. One being (which you may have already heard) Madonna performing during the Superbowl have time show early next year. Now, new details have been released by Madonnarama about what she’ll be performing and with who.

The lead single off of her album is said to be called “Give Me All Your Love,” featuring Nicki Minaj and MIA. The latest is that Madonna will be performing this song with the other two ladies at the Superbowl. Apparently nine of her tracks are complete, but who knows if that’s true or not. The album is set to be released in the spring of 2012 and it’s supposed to have a pop/dance vibe. Love it! My favorite album by far is Confessions on a Dancefloor. This album is being produced by produced by William Orbit. He has worked with Madonna on Ray of Light and will also have the work of DJ Martin Solveig and Benny Benassi.

In other related Madonna business, have you ever heard these 10 guys from an a capella group called “Straight No Chaser“? They’ve tackled Madonna’s “Like A Prayer” and sing it so beautifully! They’ll be touring Canada in 2012. Check out this video of their live performance in Atlantic City, NJ. So good!

Nicki Minaj is a master at taking on different personas. We’ve seen her in just about everything. Just when I thought the female rapper couldn’t surprise me, she does. Minaj gets historical on us and transforms into an 18th century courtesan. It’s an ultra-feminine and soft look the hip hop artist hasn’t graced us with yet. Appropriately enough, the transformation was for W Magazine’s Art & Fashion issue. Nicki is front and center on their November 2011 issue. Photographer Francesco Vezzoli was the creative force behind the photo shoot. Here’s the reason why he chose Minaj as his subject:

“I wanted to play with the public image of a female hip-hop star. During my entire career, I have always been fascinated by powerful women in history. I have spent a lot of time researching the ways they were represented in art and how their images were used to mold the public imagination – and to convey aesthetic and philosophical ideas about beauty and sexual desire. My main interest has been to link the historical artistic approach to female representation to contemporary icons of the media era,”

Inside the magazine, Vezzoli and stylist Edward Enninful outfitted Minaj to take on the following famous French women- Marquise de ­Montespan, Comtesse du Barry, Madame de Pompadour, and ­Madame Rimsky-­Korsakov. Using clothing by Dior Haute Couture and Vera Wang, to mention a couple of designers, Minaj goes back in time and gives these famous courtesans a high-fashion editorial edge. Check out the breathtaking artistic photos below. Truly stunning.

For those of you that haven’t watched 8-year old Sophia Grace sing Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass” yet, now is the time. The little girl (alongside her 5-year old cousin Rosie) rapped the song and uploaded it on YouTube where it went viral instantly. What happens when a singer (especially a young singer) becomes a YouTube sensation? Yup, they end up on The Ellen Degeneres Show.

When Ellen saw 8-year-old Sophia Grace and her cousin Rosie sing the song, she was set on having them on the show ASAP. All the way from England (love their accent), the two girls came and sat down with Ellen for a mini interview before performing the song in front of the audience. Sophia Grace is absolutely hilarious and has such an amazing personality. They are both so cute together. You HAVE to watch the interview and see her perform.

If that wasn’t enough, Sophia got the surprise of her life when Ellen invited Nicki Minaj on stage. Holy moly was Sophia ever excited. So adorable. Enjoy the videos below:

Earlier this week, I shared Rihanna’s new blond look on the cover of British Vogue and Kate Winslet’s mod-tastic Harper’s Bazaar one. Obviously, there not the only celebs gracing the cover of magazines this November. All you have to do is take a quick glance at your local newsstand to see that. So, I decided to pick a few of my favorite celebrities pimping themselves out on magazine covers this month and ask you, which one is your favorite. I’ve chose publications ranging from British GQ to Gay Times Magazine featuring Kellan Lutz, Taylor Lautner, Darren Criss, Kristin Stewart, Johnny Depp and Nicki Minaj. Take a quick look at all of them and cast your vote.

Kellan Lutz

Lutz talks about what he’s up to now that filming “Twilight” is over. Here’s what he’ll miss the most about the franchise. “The best part of being a part of the franchise was hanging out with the fans at the premieres and the fan conventions and all the signings.” More of Kellan Lutz at

Willow Smith is back and she’s ready to light up your weekend with her new single, “Fireball” which features none other than Nicki Minaj! The other day, Smith tweeted that a new track would be coming out soon and also included the above Willow-less album artwork.

It seems as though she’s outgrown hair whipping and plain and simple, she’s letting it be known that she’s the “Fireball” of the party. She better not be referring to the cinnamon-flavored Fireball whisky because girl is far too young to be drinking that. The track has less of the little girl bubble gum feel that “Whip My Hair” had and more of a “good girl gone bad ass” feel. Think Fergie’s “London Bridge” meets Black Eyed Peas “Imma Be” meets Willow herself. It haven’t played it on repeat enough to be able to say if I love it or not. I will say that Nicki Minaj’s interaction with Willow within the song is a welcome addition.

Listen to the song below and let me know what you think!
