The Philly 4th of July Jam is Friday and a slew of hot, hot, hot acts are slated to perform— Ed Sheeran, Jennifer Hudson and The Roots to name a few. Oh! Did we mention Nicki Minaj will be there too? Yup—the reigning queen of rap will be gracing us with her presence.
Whether she’s looking regal or Roman, Minaj always brings the oomph when it comes to her onstage wardrobe and this weekend will be no exception. We’re on the edge of our seats in anticipation over how Lady Minaj will appear to wow us with her raps and rhymes. Will she wear pants? Will her eyes do that crazy Roman thing that both frightens and entices us? Will she wear a wig?— O.K., that last one’s a given. (…or is it? Curse you, Minaj, with your signature unpredictability! WE CAN’T HANDLE IT!)
In honor of the inevitable slayage that will occur in three days time, we’ve compiled 15 of Minaj’s craziest onstage outfits for your admiration. Love her gladiator gear. Embrace her rainbow mermaid ensemble. Bow down to the wigs: So. Many. Wigs.
Check out the gallery and let us know your favorite onstage Minaj looks in the comments below. And don’t forget to tune in for The Philly 4th of July Jam this Friday from 8 p.m.-11 p.m. ET on PhillyJam.VH1.com and the VH1 App.
