Ricky Martin, Nicki Minaj new faces of Viva Glam

Move over Gaga.

MAC has two new spokespeople for its Viva Glam campaign. New York Magazine's "The Cut" reports that rapper Nicki Minaj and singer Ricky Martin have landed the gig.

Minaj recently tweeted, "Yesterday was perfection. MAC shoot, + Ricky Martin + David LaChapelle + MIAMI = PURE Unadulterated PERFECTION!"

The company donates the proceeds from the limited edition Viva Glam products to HIV and AIDS prevention and treatment.

    Speaking of A.I.D.S. Ricki appears waiting for a face full of cream corn.

    A *teensy* correction: not all Viva Glam products are limited edition. There are 6 shades of lipstick and two of lip gloss that are in the permanent collection with special editions issued from time to time. The MAC Aids fund is the second largest non-pharmaceutical donor to HIV/AIDS charities around the world.

    Drive by and drug deals? If you listened to her music rather than participating in kkk gatherings you would realize that nicki minaj is rapping about creating equality in the music business and giving women strength they did not have before.

    But don't get either of them pregnant, they'll blow up to over 200lbs and will never get that weight down again. They've both have the "Fat Gene".....

  22. just sayin...

    rappers are a dime a dozen. even if they're not copying some other rapper, it all sounds the same. it's the soundtrack of drive-by's and drug deals.

    Minaj just ripped off Eminem, she does the same " voice imitations" that Eminem does except she is terrible at it. Everytime her songs come on I cringe. Minaj please go, and leave the rapping to professionals like Missy Elliot.

    Niki Minaj is just another copier of others looks and sounds. The chick couldn't find a record deal with anyone until Lil Wayne and Young Money took her in. She then went after Lil Kim over stupid reasons. Niki. Take your fake backside and go back to the hood you came from and stop copying every successful female singer.

      It's not hard for an "artist" to climb the charts these days when most "music" fans wouldn't know quality and real talent if it punched them in the face.

    Awesome... Great charity.... Finally, putting HIV/AIDS back to the forefront. A cure is needed...

      Im sorry to be such a pessimist, but, quite frankly, no one is looking to cure HIV/AIDS. Funding for finding a cure has decreased significantly in the recent past and a large part of funding is put into discovering new and innovative drugs that will allow us to keep HIV/AIDS as a chronic disease. As long as HIV/AIDS medication continues to generate big $$$ for the pharmaceutical companies and the health field can generally maintain the health of society by keeping the HIV/AIDS at bay, we will continue to see HIV/AIDS cases. This is how our society operates, sad as it may be.
