Sparkly: Nicki Minaj’s Diamond Birthday Suit

Rapper Nicki Minaj is certainly known for her daring fashion sense, but last night she really celebrated her birthday in a special ‘birthday suit’ of diamonds.

Her 26th birthday party was held at Tao in Las Vegas last night, with friends like Cassie and Amber Rose in attendance. The hitmaker, who was born in Trinidad and moved to New York when she was five, admits she was driven to succeed following her painful upbringing because she wanted to save her mom from the beatings she would suffer at the hands of her father, who battled drug addiction.

Google also revealed this week that Minaj was one of the year’s most Googled celebrities.
