The 'Starships' singer launched her debut fragrance in New York this week.

Nicki Minaj has confessed that she was blown away when she first saw the design for the bottle of her Pink Friday perfume.

The 'Moment 4 Life' singer launched her fragrance in New York yesterday (24th September) and admitted the project had been an ambition of hers for some time.

"I've been thinking about [a fragrance] for like, the last two years actually; I knew I was going to call it Pink Friday," she told MTV News.

The rapper first announced details of the perfume back in April and unveiled the bottle design to her fans at the end of last month.

She added: "I didn't know I would have a pink wig on the bottle until I met with the fragrance company and they asked me what I wanted my bottle to look like and I said — is there any way we can put a pink wig on it?"

"They said, 'You know what? Let's try,' " Nicki explained. "And they came back with sketches and I was floored that they actually nailed it, I couldn't stop looking at the sketches."

Nicki wore a neon pink blazer and a chauffeur hat with a multi-coloured bikini top and blue striped trousers to the event in the city. 

Meanwhile, the Trinidad-born star recently signed up for the new season of American Idol alongside fellow new recruits Keith urban and Mariah Carey.

She will also be unveiling a re-packaged version of her second studio album 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' at the end of the year.
