musicminute 1 AMP Music Minute: Nicki Minaj Is Halloween y, Beyonce Releasing Roseland Ballroom DVD, And TI Is Hustling On His New Album

When you think about celebrity Halloween costumes, some of the classics come to mind, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Marilyn Monroe[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Elvis,[/lastfm] [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Jackson[/lastfm] perhaps. But these days, people are more likely to show up to your party in a meat dress, a la [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm], than Hulk Hogan or even Wonder Woman. And there ain’t nothing wrong with that!

This year, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm] is all the rage! Accordng to Google, she is the most searched celebrity costume. This should be no surprise considering some of the outfits we’ve seen her in this past year. I keep seeing the Franken-wigs she rocks from time to time, and her look is already so Halloween, she seems like the perfect celeb to model yourself after.

AMP got in on the trend, showcasing the neon pom-pom outfit as one of the many ways to be her Minajesty. And other sites have similar features, “In a tutorial with 300,000 views, a YouTube poster shares tips on applying vibrant makeup, picking the perfect pink-infused outfit (down to the animal-print shoes) and finding the right wig,” notes the New York Daily News.

When you think about it, not only is Nicki an ideal Halloween costume because she’s fabulous but putting a “Nicki” outfit together can be done on the cheap. Or you could make it yourself. Crafts and sensible prices? Sign me up!

As for Nicki, well she is reportedly going as Lil Wayne this Halloween. She got a head start on the set of Birdman’s “Y U Mad” video, donning dreadlocks, a wife beater, chains and baggy pants while responding to questions in a slow drawl to mimic her boss man.

Back in August a lucky few were able to attend one of four intimate performances by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beyonce[/lastfm] at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City. At the shows she performed her newest album, 4, in its entirety and spoke a little about how she came to write those songs and her history in the music industry. She also performed some of older hits, including those with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Destiny’s Child[/lastfm].

A few weeks later she released promos of the concert series where the viewer got to see behind the scenes and snippets of the live show if they missed out.

But now, Bumble Bey, is giving her fans what they want, full access to those “4 Intimate Nights with Beyoncé”at the Roseland.

On Novermber 21st, Beyonce will release the concert DVD called “Live at Roseland,” it will feature candids of the singer talking about some of the biggest moments of her career.

For the ultimate fan, hold off on the November 21st release because on November 29th, Bey will release a deluxe package of the DVD concert called “Live at the Roseland: The Elements of 4,” which will include a two-disc DVD with the concert, bonus footage, unreleased videos, a booklet, and a video anthology. That’s for the Beyonce ballers.

Just days ago AMP Radio‘s own Michelle had the distinct pleasure of sharing a hotel room with the one, the only, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]T.I.[/lastfm]

No, not like that! She was there to interview him. Sheesh!

But seriously, making his rounds on the West coast to spread the word about his new novel, “Power & Beauty: A Love Story of Life on the Streets,” T.I. also discussed his upcoming and long-awaited new album.

So far, the Kang has at least forty tracks already recorded for his upcoming album, with no signs of stopping, “Man, I got music, man. Poppin’ off. I’ve got about forty songs so far and I’m recording every day,” he told Michelle. This includes some features with B.o.B., Akon, Cee-Lo and maybe even the illustrious 3 stacks, Andre 3000. “Me and Jeezy got a hot record. Me and Akon got a record. I haven’t done many. Most of them is just me and Bob-we’ve got two or three records. Me and Pharrell got a few records. Just sent a record to Andre 3000 to see how he gonna feel about getting on it. Me and Cee-Lo was just in the studio, so there’s more possible collaborations.”

Also in the interview, T.I. discusses his stage time with Taylor Swift, getting back into the movie game, his upcoming VH1 show and more.
