Nicki Minaj Teams Up With Dr. Dre for Pink Pill Speakers [Video]
You’re nobody these days unless you have your own personally branded line of audio gear, and Nicki Minaj isn’t about to be left out of the fun — in fact, she’s getting ready to debut her own wireless speaker.
Well, maybe not her very own — more like a Minaj-ized variation on the portable Pill speaker line manufactured by the folks at Beats Electronics — but it’s a big enough deal that Nicki is taking fans behind the scenes of her Pill commercial, which is set to debut during the April 10 episode of ‘American Idol.’ (You can see the footage embedded above.)
“I am so excited about this product. It’s something I actually use,” said Minaj in a press release. “It’s a little tiny speaker that I can travel with yet the sound is incredibly loud and rich. I knew the Barbz would not only love it, but that they’d want it in pink! So, here ya go Barbz!!!! My PINK PILL!”
After you rush out to your nearest AT&T store to get one of Nicki’s pink Pills (which retail for $199), you can head over to Kmart, where she’s getting ready to launch her Nicki Minaj Collection of apparel, a deal she promises will “give me a way to have my fans dress like me for an affordable price and it’s going to be rich stuff, quality stuff.” Added Minaj, “My big thing is that it cannot look cheesy and cheap, and that’s what I want to give my beautiful Barbz.”
