Nicki Minaj Heads Up the No Bra Club, Calls Them “the Devil” on Ellen Show

nicki minaj no bra

Put ten women in room to discuss bras, and you’ll get at least ten different opinions (possibly more!) on whether bras are awesome or not. As a bra-hater myself (except for a good sports bra when I’m exercising), I regularly look for blouses that I can skip a bra while wearing, or wear a pretty organic bralette with if I must wear something.

Apparently, Nicki Minaj and I have this one thing in common. Check out her kinda over-the-top (or is it under-the-boob?) jacket on her recent visit to the Ellen show (below).  I don’t know that even I would rock this particular look, but I give her a “you go girl” for sure. I’m loving Nicki Minaj’s no bra thing—what about you? (To see the full version of the cropped-for-standards photo above, check out Nicki’s Twitter stream here.)
