The 28-year-old declared that it was a “major moment” for both her career and for her fans whom she refers to as ‘Barbies’, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“It’s just a one of a kind, limited edition for charity, and so I never thought Mattel would even pay attention to me. For me this is a very major moment, because it just shows that you can come from nothing and still be a force in the main world, a business woman, and hopefully a mogul one day,” Minaj told Billboard.com.
The toy, which features Minaj’s signature hair and sparkly outfits, will be a one-of-a-kind model that will be auctioned at Charitybuzz.com Dec 7 at the price $1000.
All the money will go to Project Angel Food which helps those affected by HIV and AIDS.
