Nicki Minaj at her Pink Friday launch at Myer.
Nicki Minaj fans yesterday crammed into Sydney City’s Myer store to see their favourite rapper release her new perfume, Pink Friday.
The “Super Bass” singer, who is about to tour Australia and was a presenter at last night’s Aria awards, kept the crowd of more than 400 people waiting more than an hour at Myer.
She warmly greeted fans when she arrived, shaking their hands, embracing them and posing for photographs. She was wearing a multi-coloured satin ankle-length dress and bright pink lipstick.
Young men had roses to give to Nicki and groups of teenage girls took the day off school and wore pink hair extensions.
“It is my dream come true to have a fragrance in Australia,” Minaj told the screaming crowd.
“I want people to feel happy and dreamy when they wear my new perfume.”
James Panagis, a Minaj fan from Potts Point, described the smell of the perfume as “very floral and pink”.
