An exclusive Nicki Minaj Barbie doll is to be made.

The doll, of which only one will be made, will be auctioned on behalf of Project Angel Food, a charity that provides food for HIV and AIDS sufferers, reports Rolling Stone. The bidding will start at $1000 (£638) on auction website

Recently the hip hop star took to Twitter to confirm that she will release her second album 'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' on February 14 next year, writing:

'Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded' will be released on Valentines Day, 2012. Heeeee's baaaacccckkkkk.

Minaj had hinted that she would be recording material as her gay male alter-ego Roman last month. The rapper, who introduced the persona on 'Roman's Revenge', the opening track of 'Pink Friday', wrote it in a blog post: "Roman will be in rare form this time. You know why? 'Cause he no longer gives a fuck."
