What is a ‘barb’?
The term ‘barb’ refers to the name of American singer Nicki Minaj’s fan base. So you’re a ‘barb’ if you’re a die-hard admirer of her song. The plural of it is ‘barbz,’ which refers to Nicki’s whole audience.
Where does the name ‘barb’ come from?
Nicki’s alter persona is the Harajuku Barbie, which alludes to Nicki’s feminine aesthetic and fondness for pink. Nicki performs as the Harajuku Barbie in some of her songs and music videos, while she is just Nicki in others.
Consider Nicki as the Harajuku Barbie during the Superbass era, when she donned her distinctive pink wig and lived the feminine fashionable lifestyle.
Fans proceeded to abbreviate her name to Harajuku Barbz, and eventually to just ‘Barbz,’ which is where her fandom got its name.
Who are ‘Ken barbz’?
Even now, various members of Nicki’s fandom are known by different names. Nicki’s male admirers, for example, are referred to as “Ken barbz.” The name comes from Barbie’s lover, the Ken doll.
