Nicki Minaj Reveals BET Special Is on the Way
Fans that won't get the chance to see Nicki Minaj up close and personal on The Pinkprint Tour are in for a surprise. The "Truffle Butter" rapper announced that she's giving the Barbz an inside look at her life -- both on the professional and personal tip -- once again.
During her tour stop at the Barclays Center in New York on Sunday night (July 26), she alluded to the fact that something big was going on, but she couldn't reveal the news just yet. Now she's giving details on why several cameras were floating around onstage recording her every move.
"So the secret was: BET was filming my show last night for a special we're working on. Can't wait for u guys to see it. Love u BET! New York, I can't even explain your energy last night. I just know I've never felt anything like it. Thank you #Barclays #ThePinkprintTOUR," she wrote along with an Instagram photo of herself and Lil Wayne while onstage.
Minaj's tour has earned much praise by fans and critics alike. "When Nicki Minaj is onstage, even the most mundane moments seem marvelous," writes Rolling Stone. "Last night in Brooklyn, she demonstrated how easily she can move an audience with a slight scan of her eyes, or a slow strategic stroll up the steps of her set."
The New York Times championed her as "the helm of the best hip-hop tour lineup of the year."
The Queens native has been the star of two prior MTV specials: My Time Now in 2013, and My Time Again in 2015. BET has yet to announce any further details of the televised production including when it will air. One thing we're sure you'll see: Omeeka getting cozy for the cameras.
In addition to her forthcoming BET special, Minaj also announced that she will be throwing her first annual #BBFLife party in New York. More details to come.
