The 'Starships' rapper announces plans for the launch of her first perfume this Spring.

Nicki Minaj has confirmed that she will be releasing her Pink Friday fragrance in the UK this spring.

The 'Pound The Alarm' star ended a one month hiatus on her Twitter account this week and told fans that there will be a "very special surprise" upon the release of her perfume.

"The fragrance launches in the UK this Spring w/a very special surprise that I know you guys will love! We're currently in the US, CAN, & AUS," she tweeted.

Nicki has also been teasing details of a new fashion and retail line alongside Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine.

Meanwhile, Nicki is currently preparing to make her TV judging debut on the new series of American Idol, which airs later this month.

During auditions in North Charlotte last year, the singer was involved in a public altercation with fellow judge Mariah Carey, causing increased anticipation for the show to begin.

Both female stars have since attempted to downplay the fight with producer Nigel Lythgoe admitting it was fantastic publicity for the new series.
