Lil Nas X showed his appreciation for Nicki Minaj by transforming into the hip-hop superstar for Halloween.
The Old Town Road rapper took inspiration from Minaj’s dazzling Super Bass music video and wore the same skin-tight pink jumpsuit along with a pink and platinum blonde wig.
He also hopped on an ice sculpture motorcycle as seen in the original video.

In pictures of the outfit shared to Instagram, it appeared Lil Nas X used some digital trickery to replicate Minaj’s famous curves.

Iggy Azalea said: “You win Halloween 2020!”
