PHOTOS: Nicki Minaj’s Best Wigs EVAR!!!

Once Lady Gaga appeared on the scene several years ago, covering her naturally brunette locks with a big ol’ blonde wig and enormous bangs, pop stars began to take a cue. Call it The Gaga Effect. In the years since, Katy Perry shifted gears from the Jane Russell-inspired vintage pinup look to the unofficial Mayoress of Candyland, where her array of wigs match all colors of the sweet-toothy rainbow.

Rapper Nicki Minaj followed suit, and she’s essentially blown her peers out of the water when it comes to wigging out. In fact, at this point, it’s hard to remember if Nicki ever showed her natural locks because every time we see her, she’s got a totally different hairstyle. Given that she’s anything but a T-shirt-and-jeans kind of girl, Nicki can usually be seen rocking space-age bodysuits and fluorescent couture that borrows liberally from “Pee Wee’s Playhouse.”

Just like you can’t ever predict what you’ll get on a Nicki Minaj track (pining love song? aggro fire-spitter?), you can’t predict what Nicki Minaj will turn up looking like, except that she’ll always bring some fierce new ensemble and, with it, huh-mazing wigs. This we know for a fact because we created a photo gallery of Nicki Minaj’s best wigs! Here’s a sneak peek:
