Nicki Minaj is a great actress

Some of you may not know or remember this, but before Nicki Minaj became one of the biggest female rappers in history, she was just Onika Maraj, a wannabe child actress in New York City who attended theatre school to prep her for life in the bigtime. Someone actually dug up a clip from this period, showing Nicki rehearsing for a production and getting really, really into it. Perhaps too into it. And it’s hilarious.

Glad to see she hasn’t really changed much from her early days. Stay true, girl.

Ellen DeGeneres recreated Nicki Minaj’s ‘Anaconda’ video and it’s hilarious

Nicki Minaj released her video for ‘Anaconda’ last month and pretty much EVERYONE was talking about it. It was definitely a NSFW affair, but if anyone can bring things back down to earth a bit, it’s Ellen DeGeneres. She decided to create her own version of the ‘Anaconda’ video – or rather, hilariously insert herself in the original – and the results are amazing.

How can you not love Ellen? She’s the best!

Music Video: Usher – ‘She Came to Give It to You’ featuring Nicki Minaj

Usher has always thought he was Michael Jackson reincarnate (even before MJ was dead), so it’s no surprise to me that he’s continuing to try to morph into the King of Pop. It’s not happening, of course, but that doesn’t seem to discourage him. His new single is called ‘She Came to Give It to You’, which is like ‘Blurred Lines’ redux. Because we needed another ‘Blurred Lines’, of course.

Nicki Minaj features in the song/video and Drake is even there, splurging on a bunch of bags of chips (well, he was there behind-the-scenes, anyway). Live large, man.

This song is awful.

Missed the VMAs? Let me catch you up!

Did you miss last night’s MTV Video Music Awards? You’re not alone. I generally purposely try to miss the broadcast, but for whatever reason, I actually tuned in this year – via torrent, of course, which means I got to skip over the seemingly endless ad breaks. Here are the 10 moments that people are talking about/will make you seem totally “on it” around the water cooler at work.

Beyoncé. Everything Beyoncé.

Beyonce Jay-Z Bluey Ivy VMAs

Beyoncé was given the Video Vanguard Award after giving an incredible performance of a medley of pretty much every single song on the self-titled album. I know I get a bit Beyoncé-d out sometimes, but you can’t deny she’s an incredibly accomplished performer and that award was extremely well-deserved. Jay-Z bringing little Blue Ivy up on stage to hand her the statue at the end was the extra cherry on top. SO CUTE.

Miley Cyrus got a homeless man to accept her award.

Miley Cyrus won Video of the Year, but instead of accepting the award herself, she sent a homeless man from the area on stage to represent the homeless community in Los Angeles and bring awareness to the cause. Miley was in tears the whole time he was speaking, but I can’t tell if this was genuine or some weird hacky PR move. I’m feeling optimistic today, so I’ll go with the former.

Nicki Minaj releases a very NSFW video for ‘Anaconda’

Nicki Minaj has been teasing the world with her video for new single ‘Anaconda’ for weeks now. It was supposed to be out a while ago, but got pushed back for ‘Bang Bang’ and her Beyonce remix. Now it’s here, however, and boy is it something else. Spoiler: There’s a whole lot of ass.

I keep seeing all these articles saying how badly they feel for Drake and that he must’ve had his junk taped to his leg after getting a lap dance from Nicki. His thirst for her always has been and always will be the realest thing about him and I sorta love it… even though he’s apparently back with Rihanna now (and I love that pairing even more).

Warning: Don’t watch this one at work or you might get fired. Unless, of course, you work for a porn company or something. Then by all means, press play.

Beyoncé releases ‘Flawless’ remix featuring Nicki Minaj

Beyoncé just unveiled a remix to her popular track ‘Flawless’, complete with a rap verse performed by herself, and one performed by Nicki Minaj. Beyoncé’s verse even pays homage to the infamous elevator incident, boasting, “Of course shit goes down sometimes when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator.” It doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, that line, does it?

All in all, this song did NOT need a remix. But if you want to listen to it anyway, you can head on over to Beyonce’s website or listen below (assuming this isn’t taken down ASAP):
