Capital's Hardest Working Pop Stars
10. Nicki Minaj
Nicki Minaj is still a relative newcomer to the music industry, but her hard-working attitude has meant the leader of the Barbz - the name she has for her fans - has made her one of pop's most successful names. The rapper has already released two albums 2010's 'Pink Friday' and this year's sequel 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded', which featured the single 'Starships'. Nicki is widely expected to take the album on tour in 2012 following acclaimed live performances at awards ceremonies including this year's Grammy Awards.
