Nicki Minaj’s April 2013 Elle cover was an incredible breath of fresh air. It was so refreshing to see her natural beauty as just that – without tons of makeup, costumes, wigs, and general outlandishness. Since then, the rap queen has started toning down her outfits and moving more towards the elegant side of things. With 2014 came classy black hair and a considerable step up in her fashion game.

Some of our favorite pop stars weren’t timid about turning up the heat in their music videos this year. Nicki Minaj steamed up the jungle (and other things) when she gave Drake a rousing lap dance, J.Lo yachted with a dozen chiseled papis—and went cheek-to-cheek with Iggy Azalea, and T.I. vacationed in Rio with a gaggle of beauties (none of whom were mediocre, of course). 2014 was a memorable year for sexy videos, indeed.

Nicki Minaj’s third studio album The Pinkprint is considered by many her most emotional and personal project to date. To further promote the album, she flexes her acting chops in a new 16 minute short film called The Pinkprint. Created and starring Nicki, the film is divided into three parts: “The Crying Game,” “I Lied” and “Grand Piano,” each a song off of the The Pinkprint album. Co-starring Will Monfret and Boris Kodjoe, emotions run high throughout the video as Nicki deals with heartbreak, insecurities, and a bad breakup.
Over the years, tattoos have moved from being viewed as a form of rebellion reserved for select subcultures to fairly mainstream. With this growing popularity comes artists often being impulsively moved to express themselves via skin art. While some musicians become known for signature pieces that go down in cultural history, others simply have their idiocy immortalized for the world’s collective raised eyebrows. Lady Gaga, Ed Sheeran, Miley Cyrus and Drake are just some of the many celebs who got inked this past year with some interesting (and occasionally questionable) tats.

Iggy Azalea had a pretty dope 2014, you guys. Sure, the Aussie rapper-slash-sometimes-model was fairly buzzed about in 2013—however, it was her breakthrough joint “Fancy,” that infiltrated all of the world’s cars, clubs, cubicles and retirement communities for a better portion of this year. That portion was super great.
