Nicki Minaj covers the newest Elle magazine again, this time for their April 2013 issue. Read the excerpt from the cover story here and read the full thing when the issue hits newsstands on March 18th. Here is what she had to say about her dramatic make-under for the Elle shoot:

“When I saw myself with barely any makeup at, it was such a… like, I’m so, so attached to my pink lipstick, it’s hard. I feel that it’s become a part of me. To go in front of the camera, without pink lips or big ol’ crazy lashes— you know, nothing— I felt naked. It was scary! So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes.”
