London, Mar 15 (ANI): Nicki Minaj, who appears in Elle magazine's latest photoshoot, has said that she felt naked with no make-up on.

The American Idol judge is on the cover of US Elle's April edition, and she's not wearing any of her usual trowelled-on slap, or even a bra, the Mirror reported.

In the three photos that have been released so far, she's posing in a leather jacket, in a weird lady-faced swimming costume and (on the cover) she's in an unzipped leather jacket.

"When I saw myself with barely any makeup on, it was such a... like, I'm so, so attached to my pink lipstick, it's hard. I feel that it's become a part of me. To go in front of the camera, without pink lips or big ol' crazy lashes- you know, nothing - I felt naked. It was scary!" she told the publication. (ANI)
