It's a big day for Nicki Minaj--the colorful rapper turns the big 3-0!
The past year has been an exciting one for the New York City native, she released her highly anticipated sophomore album, landed a judging gig on "American Idol," launched a signature fragrance and thoroughly entertained us with her flamboyant fashion choices.
But believe it or not, Nicki is capable of toning it down. That's right, the "Roman Reloaded" rapper has proven that she can put the costumes aside and rock a LBD or jeans and t-shirt like the rest of us. The moments are (very) few and (very) far between, but they have happened.
And considering her milestone birthday, perhaps Nicki will adopt a more mature and refined fashion sense in the coming year? Fingers crossed, but we won't hold our breathe.
In celebration of Nicki's 30th birthday we've roundup all her most "normal" style moments. It wasn't an easy task, but we did it. Enjoy, while it lasts!
