Nicki Minaj Allegedly Fires Glam Squad After VMAs
Nicki Minaj is giving mad props to a New York hairstylist who recently gave her a fresh look for her Barbie Dreams video. After Minaj asked her fans to assist her in locating a new makeup artist and hairstylist – specifically in the New York area – via Instagram, she shared a video of her new cotton candy updo, along with her beat face. Minaj apparently tapped a hairstylist by the name of Deontae (or Tae) and social media obsessed makeup artist, Aaliyah Jay.
Tae, Minaj’s new hairstylist, has done hair for artists like SZA, Dreamdoll, Teyana Taylor, and Future’s baby mama, Brittni Mealy. According to Tae, he always dreamed of Minaj being on his roster. He shared a message from Minaj, praising her for the opportunity. He wrote in his caption,
“If anybody knows me knows I always say “I WANNA SLAY NICKI, I WANNA BE NICKI HAIR STYLIST” n now look”
God is so good , god I thank you every single day cause u never let me down!!!!! I prayed n I prayed n I continue to pray for moments like this!! You just really changed my whole life!

If anybody knows me knows I always say “I WANNA SLAY NICKI, I WANNA BE NICKI HAIR STYLIST” n now look ????????
But as Minaj is adding members to her glam team, she also has allegedly let two members go. Last week, theJasmineBRAND reported how Minaj’s longtime hairstylist Kim Kimble had called out established hairstylist, Tokyo Stylez for not having a cosmetology license. The claim came after Stylez took a jab at Kimble’s work on Minaj for the VMAs.
While Stylez has yet to respond to the call out, Kimble and Minaj have both unfollowed each other on Instagram.
In the midst of the news, Kimble posted a cryptic Bible scripture on Sunday. The scripture read,
“No weapon formed against shall prosper. Isaiah 54:17.”
Some fans even reacted to the unfollowing.
