With the ad for her latest fragrance Minajesty (the follow-up scent to her successful Pink Friday), Nicki Minaj continues to do what she does best: makes jaws drop.

We don’t know what to discuss first. The dramatic ruffled gown? The sky-high cotton-candy hair? The bonanza of bling? The throne she’s perched upon? Let’s just say this: Everything about the ad is majorly Minaj.

In the shot, the rapper poses in front of a golden throne with arms stretched wide over her “kingdom.”

“I absolutely love this image and I hope my fans are as excited about it as I am,” Minaj tells PEOPLE exclusively. “This new brand is striking, unforgettable, sexy and full of mystery.” She goes on to say that the photographer (David LaChapelle) perfectly captured her vision, “blending high fashion and pop art in such a remarkable way.”

And the bustier-shaped bottle for Minaj’s scent (infused with notes of peach, tiger orchid and fluffy vanilla) definitely matches the over-the-top new campaign image.

“I want this fragrance to invite my Barbz [her fans] to celebrate their glamorous side, live in the moment and be outrageous knowing that true power comes from within,” she shares.

Robert Pattinson: International man of mystery? That’s the impression we’re getting from the first images leaked from his Dior campaign.

First we were left to wonder why the Twilight hunk found himself clothed in a bathtub, flirting with a faceless female. And now the brand has posted a photo of the fully-suited star sitting cross legged on a roof, gazing pensively into the distance.

Time to make room for another mini Nicki Minaj on your dresser!

After the success of her first scent, Pink Friday (and its self-referential bottle), the singer is releasing her next fragrance, Minajesty — with a similarly saucy bottle to match.

“Minajesty … is sultry, captivating and powerful,” Minaj tells PEOPLE exclusively. “There is a sexy power behind having self-confidence. I want this fragrance to invite my Barbz to celebrate their glamorous side, live in the moment and be outrageous knowing that true power comes from within.”

Certainly Minaj is taking that lesson to heart, letting fans sneak a peek at the intense beauty look she’s sporting for her fragrance campaign. And with notes including peach, tiger orchid and fluffy vanilla, it sounds like the scent will be as major as the bottle it’s in.

David Beckham Gets Shirtless For - and Interviews Himself About - His Fragrance

Jul/25/2013 at 12:00 PM ET


Not surprising: David Beckham takes off his shirt to shill another product (in this case, it’s an ad for his David Beckham Classic fragrance). Slightly more surprising: He gets up close and personal with himself as his own interview subject to discuss the fragrance.

Sample question: David, “you’ve changed the attitude of men towards grooming and cosmetics. How important is grooming to you?” And the answer? Well, David, “I think it’s important to always look after yourself whatever your age. For me it feels instinctive and I don’t wear something because of what anyone would think.”
