Nicki Minaj has managed to keep herself relevant in a music industry that is dominated by males. One could attribute her success to her electric personality, racy image or sexually charged lyrics. Some argue that she is talented while others just see a wanna-be Barbie, however you choose to see it, she keeps us talking about her! Mission accomplished.

Her latest stunt–donning a pair of metallic pasties on the set of French Montana’s video shoot “Freaks”— left us wondering what exactly, men–who she appeals most to- think of her.

Editor’s Note: I personally love the song “Freaks,” Nicki killed it!

We polled 11 guys on their thoughts about Nicki’s racy and ever-changing image and the answers might surprise you!
