Billboard Music Awards 2014: Nicki Minaj Almost Had A Wardrobe Malfunction

Nicki Minaj brought out the big guns on the Billboard Music Awards red carpet in Las Vegas tonight (May 18). The busty babe almost spilled out of her figure-hugging black dress. In fact, she had to stop for a moment and readjust her breasts in order to prevent a Janet Jackson Super Bowl moment. I’m sure the photographers weren’t complaining.

The rap diva, who promised to drop her new single this week during last night’s Powerhouse performance, looked absolutely stunning. Toning down the clown make-up and fright wigs has turned out to be a genius idea. Nicki is looking sexier and classier than ever. Expect to see a lot more of her over the next couple of weeks as promo for her third LP The Pink Print heats up. More »

Nicki Minaj’s Powerhouse Set: “Dropping My Single On Wednesday”

Yasss, Bish
Nicki Minaj invited Soulja Boy during Power 106′s Powerhouse show in Los Angeles, to perform their collaboration “Yasss Bish!!!” as it was released two weeks ago. When it wrapped, though, Minaj offered a correction — or as she said, “a little tiny remix” — to her lyrics. “I was saying, ‘Dropping my single in two weeks.’ Now I said, ‘Dropping my single on Wednesday / tell them bitches I’m their sensei.’”

For fans, that first line was crucial. By then, they already told Minaj that they had been counting down from when “Yasss Bish!!!” dropped, only to feel misled. More »

Nicki Minaj Reveals New Single Release Date In “Yasss Bish” Featuring Soulja Boy: Listen

Nicki Minaj, tell ‘em. In her new song “Yasss Bish,” she places a bid for the Los Angeles Clippers as Dr. Dre, Puff Daddy and Rick Ross did earlier this week. In between calls for a babysitter (see, her rap competition requires supervision), she praises Jada Pinkett-Smith: “Look up to Jada, I love her and Will.”

And as he did for Instagram (above), Soulja Boy grovels to Minaj at the hook. Yes, that’s him saying, “Yasss bish, yasss.”

To Minaj, Soulja Boy’s gracious hook predict how Barbs will soon praise her – for “Yasss Bish,” sure, but also for something even bigger. “Dropping my single in two weeks /The Pink Print album a movie,” she squeals, as if stoked to kick off her next album era. Say it with Soulja Boy, now — “Yasss bish, yasss” — and hear Minaj’s explosive new song below. More »

It Takes A Village: 10 Pop Hits That Took At Least 6 Writers To Cobble Together, From “Drunk In Love” To “Timber”

Write On
Ahhh. Remember the good ol’ days when it only took one skilled tunesmith to write a hit single? Yeah — our minds don’t stretch back that far, either. In fact, if you have to travel in time, to “Somebody That I Used To Know” in 2012, to find the last single to top the Billboard Hot 100 with only one writer credited to it. (That would be Mr. Gotye himself, Wally de Backer.)

These days, it takes a small army to craft what we naive listeners would deem to be the simplest of songs. Remember Flo Rida‘s “Whistle”? You know — the chart-topping oral sex jam disguised as a radio-friendly, sing-song trifle for the whole family to purse their lips and blow to in the car? That one took no less than half-a-dozen writers to put together.

Below, we rounded up another 10 such pop smashes that required a team of musical geniuses — or at least Pitbull — to pen. Some may surprise you and even shatter the illusion of your favorite artists as unique jacks-of-all-trades, able to dash out catchy hits all by their lonesome.

Carry on to find out the wicked truth behind all the glitter, pop fanatics! More »

Nicki Minaj Previews New Song By Twerking To It: Watch

Nicki Minaj previewed what appears to be a new song via Instagram late Wednesday night (April 23), posting two short videos of her twerking in pink pants to a slow jam featuring her chanting vocals. And while Minaj recently said “hell no” to the prospect of her forthcoming album The Pink Print containing a shameless pop cut like “Super Bass,” this new track sounds awfully Top 40-friendly.

(Also, it looks like she takes a daily vitamin! Gotta stay in peak condition when you’re posting all those sexy selfies.)

Meanwhile, Minaj continues to have her cake and eat it, too, which she’s better at than just about any star out there trying to play both sides (Miley included). She just told MTV that she is tired of being called a “female rapper.” “I do not see myself as a female rapper anymore, I’m sorry. I see myself as a rapper.” Preach.

Watch the prodigious twerk session with the new song below. More »

Nicki Minaj’s Killer Cleavage Conquers Instagram: 9 Pics

Nicki Minaj has made a point of toning down her image in the lead up to The Print Print — at least as far has her hair and make-up is concerned. The clown paint and crazy wigs have been binned but the femcee hasn’t exactly become a shrinking violet. In fact, her new favorite hobby appears to be showcasing her killer rack on Instagram.

The “Lookin’ Ass” diva has really embraced busty selfies. She went on a posting spree a couple of days ago and picked up where she left off last night (April 23) by sharing eye-popping pics in a clingy white top. We’ve seen a lot more of Nicki’s two biggest hits in the past, so I guess this is kind of demure by her standards. No doubt she will up the ante closer to the album release date. More »

Nicki Minaj Says “Hell No,” ‘The Pink Print’ Will Not Have A “Starships” Or “Super Bass”

The “Nicki Minaj is returning to her hip-hop roots” narrative is already in high gear, even though Minaj has yet to officially release a track from her forthcoming album The Pink Print. But the storyline is undeniable, from the Jay Z-referencing album title to the furious rhymes she has unleashed so far this year on tracks like “Lookin’ Ass” and “Chi-Raq,” and even factoring in her uncharacteristically toned-down new looks. But now Nicki herself has confirmed she’s focusing on rap and isn’t worrying so much about pop sheen this time around.

When asked whether the new LP will have a song like “Starships” or “Super Bass,” Minaj responded with a simple “Hell no.” “The tracks on Pink Print are back to my hip-hop roots,” she told MTV in a recent interview. “And I don’t think it’s something that I’m necessarily trying to do. As soon as I started working on my new album, that’s just the songs that I’ve been writing.” More »

Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne & Tyga Get Weird In “Senile” Video: Watch

nicki minaj senile video
Do You See Now?
Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne and Tyga‘s ominous “Senile” has gotten a colorful, slightly creepy video directed by Colin Tilley. The behind-the-scenes photos gave us an indication that the video for the Rise Of An Empire cut would be odd, but I’m not sure we were prepared for Shake Weights and the wackest version of The Worm ever put on tape.

Each rapper gets their own little setting in the video: for Tyga, it’s a blacklit room with masked dancers and a hookah, while Nicki is on a playground and Weezy spends his time with some backwards Swedish-looking family. The visual premiered on BET’s 106 & Park and isn’t online yet, so for now watch the TV rip up top. More »
