Nicki Minaj was getting all types of love from the media yesterday.
First, all the talk was about her new “Viva Glam” Ad, “co-starring” Ricky Martin. You likey?
The new photo revealed yesterday marks the start of the 2012 fundraising campaign for the MAC AIDS Fund, which the two have will be representing as spokespersons this year. The pic debuted on MAC’s Facebook page and tweeted out by both Nicki and Ricky, and has since been liked over 7,000 and reposted over a thousand times. Which should mean they’ve already raised some cash with their make-up fest…
Nicki was also making headlines yesterday when it was announced that Sophia Grace and Rosie, the two little British girls who became YouTube sensations for their performance “Super Bass,” would be on stage with her at the American Music Awards on Sunday.
Unfortunately, as awesome as that may seem to us from the outside looking in, the folks behind the AMAs are saying Nicki made their lives hell behind this and other demands, especially for the way she wants to perform the song…
Producers of the American Music Awards are pulling their hair out over the bubble-gum rapper’s racy requests and high-budget tastes.
Sources say Minaj insisted that British YouTube sensations Sophia Grace Brownlee, 8, and her 5-year-old cousin Rosie — who recently rapped her hits on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” — be included in her performance of “Super Bass” with David Guetta at the awards Sunday.
But it pushed things overbudget by including lodging and compensation for the wee performers. Minaj also won’t tone down her suggestive wardrobe and routine. Sources say an “electro-themed” set would include an “electric vibrating prop” between her legs. “The producers are fighting it out with her,” a source said. “They don’t want kids dancing to a song with that. She won’t back down.” Minaj’s rep didn’t respond.
She wouldn’t… would she??
