Stepping out of the driver's seat of her new white Range Rover, Nicki Minaj rolled into her first MC cover shoot wearing a curly blonde wig, polka-dot slippers, and a pink trucker cap with "Nicki" bedazzled across the front. On set, the rapper aimed razor-sharp focus at the camera but mixed a little personal with the professional, pausing to order Mother's Day gifts for some of her crew.

Best team of all time. XO." Marisa Carroll
