Young Money female rapper Nicki Minaj has referred to herself (or at least, one of her alter egos) as 'Barbie' for years now, and the Nicki Minaj Barbie doll lets Ms. Minaj bring that persona to life.

Nicki's legions of fans, whom she affectionately calls "Barbz," will surely be thrilled to hear the news of this Nicki doll. The one-of-a-kind Barbie doll will be auctioned off and the proceeds will go toward Project Angel Food, which is a charity that works to provide healthy meals for men, women, and children who are affected by HIV and AIDS.

The Nicki Minaj Barbie doll is classic Nicki: long pink hair with blunt bangs, lots of makeup and jewelry and of course, Ms. Minaj's signature 'Barbie' necklace.

"For me this is a very major moment, because it just shows that you can come from nothing and still be a force in the main world, a business woman, and hopefully a mogul one day," Nicki told reporters at Billboard's Women in Music event.

Not only is the Nicki Minaj Barbie adorable and a great collector's item, but it benefits a great cause. It seems that Nicki Minaj is really climbing to the top of the industry in so many ways.
