A year after Nicki Minaj partnered with MAC Cosmetics for the limited release of ‘Pink Friday’ lipstick, she has signed on to be the spokeperson for MAC VivaGlam 2012 Campaign. The new promo photo that was unveiled this week, was shot by famed photographer David LaChapelle and shows Nicki Minaj on a motorcycle accompanied by Ricky Martin who is holding an over-sized tube of lipstick.
The new lipsticks, titled VivaGlam Nicki and VivaGlam Ricky, will go on sale in February with proceeds going towards the fight against HIV/AIDS. Nicki seems like a good fit considering Pink Friday sold out but Ricky Martin being the face of a lipstick is …sort of weird.
The two will be replacing Lady Gaga who pulled in over $32 million for the MAC AIDS Fund along with Cyndi Lauper after signing on as the spokesperson in 2010. She signed on for the second consecutive year in 2011.
