Nicki Minaj is a Trinidadian-born American musician. In 2010, she became the first female solo artist to have seven singles on the Billboard Hot 100 at the same time. "Turn Me On" is a song by French DJ, David Guetta, featuring Nicki Minaj. The music video is set in a steampunk world where Guetta plays a mad scientist creating his very own Nicki Minaj from mechanical parts. The clip opens on Guetta, perhaps trying out some early cosmetic-surgery tactics, putting the final touches on his Minaj doll plans. It then it focuses on the mechanisms behind the Nicki being: latex lips, brass wiring, tubing and various other gizmos. Minaj can be seen wearing the top hat in the second verse when she is seen leaving Guetta's studio free to roam the streets.
The hat is in good vintage condition with evidence of wear due to age. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the costume house. Presented by The Golden Closet, your premier source for iconic screen used wardrobe, props, and music entertainment memorabilia.
