She can usually be found squeezing her curvy figure into skintight, revealing outfits for her various red carpet appearances.
But Nicki Minaj opted for a different look on Monday as she headed out on her motorbike.
The 30-year-old singer sported skintight blue leggings and black wellington boots with a fluorescent pink sole, topped off with a black leather jacket and patterned floral pink helmet.

And Nicki looked more than confident as she sat astride the Kawasaki bike, leaning forward to grip hold of the handles.
Nicki shared the picture with her followers, writing on Twitter: ‘I’m big willy no bike gear.’
Of course, Nicki has had experience riding bikes before, and famously rode a ‘bike’ made of ice in the video for her hit single Super Bass.
Clearly hoping to go incognito in her guise, Nicki later shared a shot of herself still wearing the helmet while inside a Malbu store, writing: ‘#SupermarketRealness #LeftmyHelmetOnRealness #vrrrrrooooommmm.’
In the shot, Nicki could be seen standing in front of a magazine stand, on which was a copy of her Elle magazine cover.
The Elle shoot showed a different side of the singer, stripping back her usual crazy make-up and colourful hair to display a more sombre look.
But Nicki admitted in the accompanying interview that going bare-faced was a difficult prospect for her.
She said: ‘When I saw myself with barely any makeup at all, 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! So this photoshoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes.’
