Nicki Minaj Channels 'Nutcracker' Character At Pink Friday Fragrance Launch In Australia (PHOTOS)

Just when we thought Nicki Minaj was starting to dress normal, the colorful rapper has given us yet another clownish outfit to shake our heads at--and this time she's getting into the holiday spirit.

Dressed in a massive multi-tiered and patterned dress, the "American Idol" judge feted the launch of her Pink Friday fragrance in Sydney, Australia on Thursday. While The Daily Mail likened the over-the-top frock to a cupcake, it immediately reminded us of Mother Ginger from the classic ballet "The Nutcracker." A perfect choice for the holiday season if she was on stage at the Metropolitan Opera House and had a gang of little dancers leaping out from beneath the dress--but that's not the case.

We're pretty fatigued by all of Nicki's foolish fashions (see: slideshow below), but we'll chalk this outfit up as the star's attempt to spread some holiday cheer rather than just rock a hot-mess dress to push her perfume.

Check out Nicki's Mother Ginger-esque ensemble and the actual "Nutcracker" character below. Twinsies, right?
