Not going to lie: this video of Nicki Minaj surprising the ballerina dress-clad “Super Bass” girls on Ellen DeGenere’s talk show made me start crying at my desk. They performed “Super Bass” for Ellen’s audience (watch here) and then she told them that Nicki was there to meet them. Sophia Grace, 8, and Rosie, 5, are stupid-cute and obviously thrilled. But it’s really when the camera pans to their parents in the audience, who are sobbing, that I lost it. Nicki Minaj looks like she’s tearing up, too. Seriously, go into a conference room if you have to and watch this. It’ll warm even the bitterest of hearts on this Thursday morning. [Clutch Magazine]
Rapper Nicki Minaj finds ever-novel ways to accessorize her over-the-top outfits. Over the weekend while performing at the iHeartRadio Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, Minaj went with a delicious hot pink fried chicken charm. Now that’s multitasking neckwear.
Look at this picture and tell me this isn’t one of the best things you’ve ever seen. Nicki Minaj making small talk with Vogue’s Anna Wintour. Can you even imagine what they’re chatting about? Nicki’s probably all, “Lady, I like your floral situation,” while Anna sits by, quietly horrified by Nicki’s loud craft store-inspired get-up.

The MTV Video Music Awards are kind of hilarious, considering the complete lack of videos played on MTV these days. But at least we can count on one thing from them: insane fashion. Everyone has carte blanche to come dressed up as a pile of trash, or a geisha robot or whatever–and this year, that’s exactly what happened. After the jump, check out how Beyonce, Katy Perry and all the rest fared.
Something must be in the water as Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj roll through Canada on their Femme Fatale tour. Throughout the tour, BritBrit has been pulling an audience member on stage and giving them a sexy lap dance. But over the weekend, Britney opted to give the dance to her tourmate, Pauly D, instead. Is it just me or does her look a little too comfortable getting handcuffed to that pole?
This is especially of note because at an earlier stop, Nicki Minaj gave a lap dance to Drake.

When I heard that Britney Spears and Nicki Minaj were teaming up for the Femme Fatale tour, I envisioned a clash of egos from two of the biggest women in the game. And according to MediaTakeout.com, I was right. It happened … and it sounds awesome. Allegedly, after their San Jose show on Saturday, an all-out cat fight ensued after Britney marched into Nicki’s dressing room to confront her for going over her allotted stage time. Britney apparently let a 10 minute run-over slide at the Sacramento show, but was enraged after San Jose, when Nicki’s performance cut 45 minutes out of Britney’s hips, lips and hair routine. Followed by a gaggle of her male backup dancers, Britney supposedly charged into the Minaj camp screaming, head-rolling and snapping fingers as her dancers cosigned for her. I can almost hear it now. “Uh uh, girl, you MUST be crazy to think you can steal Brit-Brit’s shine.” Keep reading »
Earlier this week, Lady Gaga became editor-in-chief of London’s Metro newspaper for a day, because wearing jeweled nipple tassels is as essential to an editor’s job as being able to wield a red pen and fix a serial comma. Today, I hear that Nicki Minaj became principal for a day at Collins Academy High School in Chicago when the school won the Get MotivatED contest for attendance. Nicki got the honor of giving three students scholarship checks—very cool—but I’m not so sure how she handled any students who might have gotten sent to her office for bad behavior. Maybe rather than detention, she made them wear an extra heavy Marge Simpson wig? [USA Today]
Now, I get these “______ for a day” gigs. Keep reading »
