Nicki, Roman, and Barbie

Roman and Barbie (in the "Monster" music video), two of her most famous alter egos.

An alter ego is described as a second self[1], which is believed to be distinct from a person's normal or original personality.[2] Alter egos are used by numerous performing artists who use stage or screen personae both to entertain audiences and to explore new identities for themselves[2] but usually, people who have been deprived or who haven't been able to do what they always wanted to do in life have an alter ego.[3]

Onika Tanya Maraj has created alter egos by different manners. The alter ego Cookie was created because of her parents' constant fights and arguments[4]. Later, she created alter egos like Rosa and Nicole for entertainment purposes.[5] In today's music, alter egos have been more frequently used by artists. Both Lady Gaga and Beyonce have created their alter egos "Jo Calderone" and "Sasha Fierce", respectively. Minaj's alter egos carry the traits of persons rather than alter egos, but Minaj herself has stated that she calls them her alter egos.[6]
