Nicki Minaj was clearly stressing about how to made a nude coloured outfit stand out, after all it was a foreign fashion choice for the singer who is usually clad in bright hues.
But fear not, Nicki Minaj certainly made her mark as she performed semi topless as she sung her latest release, Pound the Alarm this weekend on American TV show — The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

Yes, to make a nude look work the Minaj way you need to have your boobs spill out over your bra and hide what modesty you have left with some tit tape.
As she belted out her new track the star paraded around in hot pants heavily embellished with jewels with a matching bra that left little to the imagination.
She was spared any blushes as she covered up her nipples as it appears she didn't quite fancy doing a Madonna (who pulled her top down on stage).
Nicki pulled off a carnival theme with fishnet tights and feathers adorning the base of her back and legs.
To complete the look she donned a long blonde wig and long false eyelashes that were made to bat!
Before she took to the stage Nicki Minaj dressed more demurely as she spoke to the TV host wearing a high neck mini dress.
Although this attire was still full of crazy patterns and in a bright pink and blue — well, it wouldn't be a Nicki outfit without something mad!
