Nicki Minaj put her time on the Met Gala red carpet to good use last night (May 7, 2018), letting the world know her next album will be titled Queen with the project planned for a June 15th drop.
The rapper from Queens, attended the Met Gala in a red Oscar de la Renta gown described by the label as a “quid dégradé red sequin gown with a multi-layered hand dip-dyed tulle coat.” Her headpiece was designed by Marianna Harutunian with jewelry by Tiffany and sandals by Le Silla (via @onikaswardrobe).
Defying a media narrative themed on contention (that Minaj in part helped frame in a recent interview), Minaj caused a major stir on social media when she was spotted making nice with Bronx rapper Cardi B inside the event. (And no, we haven’t yet figured out who the gentleman is that shot the selfie.)
Check out images from the event below.
