Say goodbye to Nicki Minaj's Franken-wigs, Barbie-on-acid lips, and cat suits — no really, cat suits. Remember this? — because the rapper just up and fired her entire "glam squad." 

According to a report in The Sun, now that Minaj is all wrapped up with American Idol, she's planning her triumphant return to the rap world — sans her infamous antics.

“Nicki is desperate to be taken seriously as an artist," a source told the tabloid. “She’s fired her long-standing hairdresser who has been responsible for some of her crazy hairstyles over the years. She’s also fired her stylist."

Minaj seems pretty serious about being "taken seriously," though. At least, that's what we're gathering from her latest look. She almost seems — with the exception of some intense falsies — dare we say it, normal. Well, for her at least!
