Trinidad and Tobago born, internationally acclaimed female rapper, Nicki Minaj is not one to be toyed with. She proved that on Tuesday night at the MTV Video Music Awards, held in New Jersey. The Queen of the Barbz hosted the event, which celebrated the work of artistes who make up the international entertainment world. Among those celebrated were Taylor Swift who won nine awards, among them, Video of the Year, Artiste of the Year and Song of the Year for “Anti-Hero.’
The event was a star studded affair as it usually is, with Sean “Diddy” Combs being honored with the Global Icon Award for his involvement in the entertainment industry for some 30 years. Minaj however stopped the show, with a performance that has since been making the rounds on social media.
Known for her multiple alter egos, including that of ‘Roman,’ Minaj, earlier in the show, warned that while she would be on her best behavior, she could not vouch for ‘Roman.’
Later, she performed, wearing a sheer, black dress that showed off her physique. Added to that, lengthy hair extensions gave the entertainer a trendy yet powerful look that expressed, in no uncertain terms that she was not the one to be toyed with. The single delivered atop the stage at this year’s VMA’s was just a taste of what Minaj has set for release on her upcoming, Pink Friday 2 album.
