Elephants and hot tubs - weddings by Minaj

Nicki Minaj wants to get married in a hot tub.

The 'Starships' singer is engaged to boyfriend Safaree Samuels (who is also her assistant) and is pulling out all the stops to make sure she has an extravagant ceremony including "fire breathers" and "naked performers" on the big day.

A source said to Heat magazine: "She wants to arrive by elephant, and to get soaking wet by jumping into either a pool or a hot tub for the ceremony.

"She's talking fire breathers, naked performers and actually exchanging vows in the hot tub. She wants it to be the most beautiful and outlandish do of all time."

Minaj is considering hosting the ceremony in her native Caribbean in a bid to remember her roots.

A source added: "Nicki really wants to get married in the Caribbean, as she was born in Trinidad and wants to celebrate that part of her heritage. She's talking about renting a private island and hosting a three-day party - she wants the whole thing to be unforgettable."

Although the wedding day itself isn't the most conventional, the 31-year-old singer wants to be every bit the blushing bride in the traditional sense, with a beautiful gown and classic make-up.

The source explained: "She wants to look like a traditional bride, with classic make-up and a couture gown.

"What she does in the gown will be the wild part."
