I don’t know if you guys have noticed but I’m more pop fan. I love Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and especially Nicki Minaj! Nicki is so unique and out there. She really doesn’t care what anyone says about her and her different colored wigs and style.
Nicki Minaj’s debut album in 2010, “Pink Friday”, jumped to number one on the US Billboard 200 chart and was given platinum status. Amazing! Her second album “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” in 2012 also topped the Billboard 200 and became one of the best-selling albums of that year. Her hit song “Starships” hit number 5 on the charts and became one of the best selling songs that year. She has earned seven BET Awards, four American Music Awards, two MTV Music Awards, an MTV Europe Music Award, five Billboard Music Awards and Billboard’s 2011 Rising Star. From the start she performed at many award ceremonys like the Billboard Music Awards. She performed “Starships” and then did a second performance with Britney Spears on the same stage with her remix hit “Till the World Ends”. Nick Minaj also performed in London for MTV. She started with “Beez in the trap” and went onto “Starships”. Afterwards, she had the crowd going crazy with her reggae medley. She played Tony Matterhorn’s “Dutty Wine” and did a remix of Gyptian’s “Hold Yuh”.
