"Super Bass" rapper Nicki Minaj marked her 29th year on this planet today.

This morning, while well wishes poured in, she responded with a simple message on Twitter: "No wishes. Just thanks. Gratitude. To God be the glory."

Holla. That didn't stop some of her friends from giving props to the talented, often-pink-haired diva ... including BFF and touring mate Britney Spears!

Watch Brit's brief YouTube birthday message to Minaj:

Kicking off a birthday with a video from Britney is a great way to get it rolling. Going out in outrageous wigs and Rainbow Brite style outfits likely followed.

Willow Smith's parents may be making headlines this week for all the wrong reasons, but that isn't slowing this 11-year old artist down one bit.

Willow appeared on BET yesterday and premiered the official video for "Fireball," a track that also features Nicki Minaj.

“Nicki Minaj is absolutely an amazing person," Smith told Ryan Seacrest of teaming with the superstar. "She has so much energy, and working with her was like just [a] spark. We were coming together with all our art and everything and it was amazing,”

Barbie dolls are changing with the times.

Often criticized for promoting the ideal woman as blonde, unhealthily proportioned and materialistic, two special edition dolls will now personify ... party-loving celebrities with weird hairstyles and rampant sex appeal, who are also really rich and famous!

Yes, Mattel is planning to launch dolls for Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry.

The dolls are said to include striking similarities to the real pop princesses like the famous tattoo on Nicki Minaj's left arm, not to mention her trademark pink hair.

It does make sense in that Minaj has garnered a following of fans who refer to themselves as "Barbies" in honor of her fondness for crazy wigs and the color pink.

Both Minaj and Perry are known for breaking the mold when it comes to fashion, and while Barbie would probably not be caught dead in their getups, we'll allow it.

The 2011 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, which aired last night on CBS, was about more than just beautiful women and skimpy lingerie. No, really, it was.

A slew of major musicians performed at the event, from Maroon 5 moving like Jagger to Kanye West showing off his strength. Not to be outdone? Nicki Minaj.

This artist strutted her pink-haired stuff on the catwalk alongside scantily-clad models and entertained the crowd with a version of "Super Bass." Watch the artist in action now:

Becoming one of the biggest names in rap/hip-hop/pop, Nicki Minaj is having one heck of a year. With this new honor from Billboard, it's going to get even bigger.

She is slated to receive the honor of Rising Star of 2011 at Billboard's "Women in Music" event on December 2 in New York City. She will no doubt look ridiculous.

Minaj said she was "deeply honored to be recognized by Billboard" and that she and her fans"mighty long way" but are not close to where "God will take us."

A classic moment in a year full of them for Nicki Minaj.

With her talent and style, the rapper/singer has emerged as one of music's most popular entertainers since releasing her debut album Pink Friday late last year.

Her hits include "Super Bass" and "Moment 4 Life," and she's collaborated with many other big names. She'll have one of her biggest fans on hand next Friday:

Taylor Swift will be honored as Woman of the Year. Anyone surprised?

Nicki Minaj kicked off this year's American Music Awards like only Nicki Minaj can.

The artist opened the show with a new track titled "Turn Me On," quickly transitioning into takes on such hits as "Where Them Girls At" and "Super Bass." Oh, she also donned clocks on her boobs; speaker on her rear end; and aluminum chaps.

Watch Nicki do her thing now, assisted by DJ David Guetta and sound off: What do you think of the performance?

Nicki Minaj was involved in another incident that required police assistance yesterday.

As first reported by TMZ, the singer fired a maid a few weeks ago because the employee fished a photo of Minaj out of the trash and asked her boss to sign it. Fast forward to yesterday afternoon.

Nicki allegedly grew enraged because she saw this maid around her property and screamed at her to "get the f-ck out of my house!" But there was a problem: Neighbors confirm Minaj made a mistake and this was a different maid!

Still, under a case of mistaken identity, Nicki's boyfriend approached the woman and actually shoved her.

Police were called to the scene, a battery complaint was filed, but no one was taken into custody. In July, cops also intervened in an incident involving Minaj, as she got into it with a man outside a Dallas hotel.

Nicki Minaj goes seriously old school on the latest cover of W. We're talking old, old, old school, people.

Thanks to artist Francesco Vezzoli, the artist is transformer into a 18th-century woman, donning elaborate pieces by Dior Haute Couture, Vera Wang, and Western Costume Company. See for yourself:

Said Vezzoli of working with Minaj, who surprised her biggest fan on Ellen this week in this adorable video:

"I wanted to play with the public image of a female hip-hop star. During my entire career, I have always been fascinated by powerful women in history. I have spent a lot of time researching the ways they were represented in art and how their images were used to mold the public imagination."

Mission accomplished, we'd say. Compare this look to Minaj's recent Cosmo cover. Notice any differences?
