Nicki Minaj definitely has a big night at this year’s MTV VMAs 2023. Not only is she hosting but also performing, set to deliver two power-packed performances. While her solo saw a preview from her upcoming ‘Pink Friday 2’ album, her second will see her alongside Lil Wayne, LL Cool J, Doug E. Fresh, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, and Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five in a tribute to 50 years of hip-hop in a while.

Donning in an entirely brown leather fit, Minaj accepted her Best Hip Hop Moon Man. But what did steal the show were her words. Accepting the award, Minaj thanked everyone but did not leave her humor behind. She asked the audience, “Should I go mean or nice?.” After getting a response from the audience, she said, “Its Barbie B*tch,” smartly balancing out the mean and nice ratio.

Continuing to talk about how she often makes jokes and has fun, she expressed her “strong sense of gratitude” to her fans who have made her the Queen of Rap that she is. And serving justice to her title was her VMAs performance that was full of fun and also had an exciting revelation which was long suspected by fans, really channelling some pink. But this pink was not related to Barbie.
