Ricky Martin and Nicki Minaj are the New MAC Viva Glam Spokespeople for 2012

MAC just announced that Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin will be its 2012 Viva Glam spokespeople, replacing Lady Gaga. MAC releases a limited edition Viva Glam lipstick every year, and has had some pretty diverse spokespeople in the past in order to reflect their "all ages, all races, all sexes" credo. RuPaul, Elton John, and Linda Evangelista have all fronted for the lipstick, 100% of the proceeds of which go to the MAC AIDS Fund. ($224 million has been raised from sales of the lipstick to date.) Um, now can we talk about this?
