Nicki Minaj looked like she'd been spun through a candyfloss machine today.
The Super Bass singer stepped out in an explosion of pink at a record signing in Bayswater, London.
Dressed in towering platform, akin to the Spice Girls reign in the Nineties, Nicki tottered along in a Barbie tutu together with a bubblegum corset and beret to match as she posed at the HMV photocall.

Graham quizzed her over why she's deleted her Twitter account, leaving millions of fans distraught.
Nicki, real name Onika, Maraj, said:
'A voice in my head told me to delete my Twitter and that’s what I did.
I had 11 million followers and I hope they will wait for me.
'I reply all the time and get to know
them by name and I have a really personal bond with them… not all 11
million, but at least 10 of them a day.'

it. I miss my Barbz (her name for her fans), please bear with me.'
She was also asked about that Superbowl kiss, in which Madonna puckered up to Nicki.
'You can’t really call it making out.
She kissed me but I didn’t kiss her. I wasn’t expecting it and was
shocked like everyone else. I was shaking and thinking, “Is this really
happening and why is she doing this” It was the strangest thing, except
she had very soft lips.'
Fellow guests on the episode include Avengers star Mark Ruffalo and comedian John Bishop.

In truth, Nicki is believed to have deleted her Twitter account after an argument with a fan who leaked her new music via the NickiDaily site after posting tracks from Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded.
The 5ft 2in star tweeted: 'And that's exactly why I'm paying the barbz DUST right now!
'And deleting my twitter. Smdh (shaking my damn head) – don't cry for me argentina.'
She added: 'Like seriously, its but so much a person can take. Good f***ing bye. ‘
But Nicki did return to the site on Sunday for a brief period telling followers she would be looking for 'a new set of barbz'.
She wrote: 'On second thought I'll just follow a new set of barbz. The ones I follow r very mean and ratchet. *side eyes them* *looks into the sea for more.’
NickiDaily.com has also pulled down their site and the link simply leads to a page that says closed.
