About Nicki Minaj

Known for her fashion-forward looks and overtly sexual rap lyrics, Nicki Minaj is one of the greatest-selling female rappers of all time. Comfortable with controversy, Minaj keeps the public on its toes. This year, she sparked an epic Twitter battle before and during the MTV VMAs after asking why “Anaconda" wasn’t nominated for Best Video when it did break the record for most views on Vevo in 24 hours. On stage, she delivered an acerbic message to host Miley Cyrus, starting the #whatsgood hashtag for a bigger conversation about what goes into a nomination. In November of 2015, Nicki disappeared from social for a week, inciting some anguished tweets from devoted fans.
