8. Nicki Minaj
The hot or not status of Nicki Minaj is much debated, but there is definitely a camp out there who loves her animated look. But such would likely not have been the case 25 years ago. Nobody would have been talking about Nicki Minaj’s giant booty back in the 90s. In fact, throughout most of history, smaller bottoms have mostly been everyone’s cup of tea, so Minaj definitely wouldn’t have been at the forefront of the big booty trend like she is today. But, luckily for Minaj, she isn’t necessarily known for her looks like other celebrities out there, so chances are that she would still hold the title of one of the most “influential female rappers of all time,” even 25 years ago.
