VH1 Divas: Katy Perry And Nicki Minaj Doin’ It For The Troops



Entertainment Tonight hung out with us yesterday at rehearsals for VH1 Divas Salute the Troops and talked to the performers to find out what the show means to them and why they’ve decided to be a part of it. Aside from having always wanted to visit a base, Katy Perry said it’s not like a “regular” concert. “It’s a concert with heart and with purpose and I love doing things with purpose.” Katy’s Divas duet partner Nicki Minaj (SPOILER: They’re teaming up for “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”) is performing for her aunt, who’s a career army gal, and all troops because they “risk their lives for us.” Said Nicki: “This is definitely one of my most meaningful performances.”

Host Kathy Griffin, who became a veteran at entertaining troops by touring the Middle East, said the men and women in uniform “just want to let off some steam.”Judging by Kathy’s stand-up routine at rehearsals, we’re pretty sure she’ll help them let of plenty of steam when the show tapes tonight. (SPOILER ALERT TWO: Lindsay Lohan and Bristol Palin are definitely on Kathy’s hit list!) [Photo: Getty Images]

    Phenomenal show! God bless our Troops and keep them safe! Thanks to VH1 for honoring their service. All of the performers did an incredible job! At first the lineup seemed a bit odd, but VH1 knows what they’re doing. I have the privilege of being a Navy wife and got to take my son, nieces, and friends to the show and we had an amazing time. Ann and Nancy Wilson are rock and roll royalty, wish they would start touring again they still have so much music in them to share. All the kids loved Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj, of course, but Keri Hilson and the others also gave stellar performances. And Michael Strahan is the man!!
