When we first tweeted from VH1 Divas Salute the Troops rehearsals and then for the taping of the show last Friday, it was Nicki Minaj fans who seemed most hungry for details. Known sometimes as barbz, her fans were happy (and unsurprised) to that hear Nicki killed it in rehearsals, sounding so good on the mic it was easy to see why she’s already earned the Queen of Hip-Hop title in a relatively short time on the scene.
Her fans also lapped it up when we reported that Nicki Minaj would duet with Katy Perry (“Girls Just Wanna Have Fun”) and perform “Right Thru Me” for TV and do “Roman’s Revenge” and “Moment 4 Life” just for the troops. But they also wanted to know what she wore, what she said, and what her hair looked like (a giant blond wig).
So it’s not surprising that Nicki fans were not too pleased after the show aired last night and we couldn’t release any of her performances online due to rights issues. This 10-second clip of Nicki rapping will give you a small taste of her VH1 Divas gig, and a chance to glimpse that behind move in a mini-dress! Catch VH1 Divas on repeat airings (tomorrow at 11:30am and 4pm EST) to see Nicki’s full set.
