Nicki Minaj has a new achievement to brag about.
She wrote, “#1 selling viva glam lipstick of all time… thank u for supporting a good cause. mmmuuuaaahhh!!!!”
The “Your Love” emcee released two shades under MAC- a coral/pink color and a lavender color. It is not certain which shade was the best-selling, especially since Gaga too released a Viva Glam lipstick under MAC. The emcee didn’t reveal just how much her specific color(s) sold, but it should be noted that 100% of the proceeds for her shade(s) benefit men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS.
Both of Minaj’s shades can still be purchased for $15, by visiting maccosmetics.com.

Singer/actress Janet Jackson covers the latest issue of A&U (America’s AIDS Magazine). In this issue, Jackson talks about her new book, her views of the disease and more. View some of the snippets from the interview below.
Janet on the importance of talking about AIDS:
“And we should also feel comfortable talking about the disease at home and in our community. It is important that we tell our kids to love themselves enough to protect themselves. It’s all our responsibility.”
Janet on getting tested for HIV:
“Yes I do, and I suggest that everyone who is sexually active do it, too.”
Janet on her new book,” True Y0u” which will be released in 2011:
“I recently wrote a book entitled True You. It’s about my experiences internalizing everything, holding everything in, feeling inadequacy and shame. How I was able to begin to achieve happiness was by having that [one particular] person to open up to.”
Janet on why she cares so much about AIDS/HIV:
“I want to help! This is a horrible disease that affects us all. It doesn’t discriminate. I want to do my part.” She concludes: “I think it’s important for all of us to get involved. This is the only way that we are going to get a hold of this disease, especially with the youth, and in third-world countries. All of us need to help….”
