Nicki Minaj’s eagerly anticipated album hits shelves on Nov. 26, but that’s not the only reason the pint-sized rapper‘s name will soon be on everyone’s lips. Minaj has teamed up with M.A.C to create a limited-edition lipstick shade named after her debut album, Pink Friday. A self-proclaimed fan of the brand, Minaj says she was so honored she teared up when meeting the M.A.C team for the first time. “They had no idea how much this meant to me,” she told PEOPLE. “I am super excited about the lipstick because I never imagined that M.A.C would even recognize me this early on in my career. For them to name the lipstick after my album makes me feel like I can do anything in the world because they are such an important brand and such an important staple in our culture.” The collaboration marks a longtime love affair between the hip hop diva and the cosmetic line. “I wore M.A.C to my high school prom,” she says. “For them to throw themselves behind a little rapper makes me love the company even more.” M.A.C’s Pink Friday will be available exclusively online, for four Fridays only, beginning Nov. 26 and running through Dec. 17. –Samantha McIntyre

Um, NO. I’ve lost any respect for MAC if they’ll associate themselves w/ the likes of no-talent / shock-value hacks Gaga & Minaj. #Epic Fail

i wouldnt say im a fan a nicki but i dont dislike her an to all the people that are saying they will never buy M.A.C again are all closed minded.. why hate on someone for just making something of her self weather she is a rapper or a CEO…

I think that it is crazy that because MAC chooses to endorse someone that you may not like that you would stop using the makeup all together! I wear nothing but MAC… am I fan of Nicki, no, but would I stop wearing it… NO! It’s just a shade of lipstick selling for FOUR WEEKS! Not even a LINE of makeup! They have endorsed several artists in the past that I don’t think are all that but MAC is different and edgy… always has been and I see why they chose her. I agree with Kayla, stop being so close minded!

Nicki Minaj is corny I can be her to give me some wack lyrics and a mic and I can scream, change my voice like a little girl, and change my voice to sound like a man. Fake wannabe Little Kim. Sad that people like her music and think she is a great artist. Sad day for music.
