SUPER IMPORTANT NEWS: The other night Nicki Minaj posted two photos on Instagram where she was supposedly aiming at showing her bobbed wig and makeup to her followers. Of course, the real focus was on Nicki’s ample bosom, which was on full display thanks to the black, barely-there bra she was wearing. Because after all, this is what pop stars do in 2014.

After teasing her Barbz on Twitter, Nicki Minaj has finally revealed her big announcement! The entertainer will be hosting the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards, at the SSE Hydro Arena in Glasgow, Scotland. But that’s not all! Minaj is also set to perform live at the award show.

Imanos’ Mixtape ‘The New Republic’ Features The First Official Remix Of “Bang Bang”: Idolator Premiere
If you’ve set foot in a club in the past year, chances are you’ve been assaulted (in a good way!) by Imanos‘ beats. The rising producer, who recently signed to Casablanca Records, has featured in sets by Skrillex, Avicii, Steve Aoki and Dillon Francis. He also co-produced Diplo‘s monstrous “Revolution” and co-wrote the title track of Jessie J‘s new LP Sweet Talker.
Speaking of the British comeback queen, the Vancouver-born DJ’s latest mixtape Imanos x Casablanca Presents: The New Republic features the first official remix of “Bang Bang”. He transforms the Ariana Grande/Nicki Minaj earworm into a meaty house anthem with lashings of trap to keep things interesting. The 19-song set, which we are very excited to premiere, also features killer overhauls of hits by John Newman, The Weeknd and Somo. Start the party by pressing play after the jump. More »
Madonna and Nicki Minaj are continuing to come for all your L-U-V.
“My trip to New York isn’t the same unless I bump into the Queen. #BitchItsMadonna,” the “Anaconda” superstar wrote on her Instagram of the two divas huddled close together. “We go Hard or we go Home we Gon Do this all night long! #werk” Madonna continued on her own post. More »
Beyonce and Jay Z‘s latest HBO special aired on September 20, just a week after it was taped during their final joint tour dates in Paris.
By now, the public already knows what to expect of Beyonce and Jay Z On the Run: How Beyonce essentially brought a routine that she perfected during her preceding Mrs.Carter Show World Tour, only now with her husband as the world’s most expensive hype man. How tweaked versions of lyrics addressed and sparked rumors of infidelity and pregnancy. How this tour’s premise was of these two stars imagining themselves as American outlaws – a blockbuster event more anticipated than any million-dollar film adaptation that Hollywood offered this summer.
But the larger point of watching On the Run isn’t to reckon with a new plot twist.
It’s to be dazzled by how expertly produced it all is: Their gritty fantasy played out on the venue’s large screens. That barre routine during “Naughty Girl.” Words from author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie‘s TED speech, flashing on the screen to cheers. Onikuhhhhhhhhhh. When Jay Z wraps his arms around Beyonce, right when she sings “Surfing all on this good good.” The hazier footage of the couple vacationing on yachts, then playing with Blue Ivy Carter – Beyonce’s expertly curated Tumblr come to life.

iHeartRadio Music Festival 2014: Watch Nicki Minaj Perform “***Flawless” And Bring Out Ariana Grande
Nicki Minaj was full of surprises at this year’s iHeartRadio Music Festival. After performing certified chart hits like “Super Bass,” she segued into her fiery verse in Beyonce‘s “***Flawless” remix – only to run into technical difficulties, as her backing music cut off and then on again. “iHeartRadio, do we have a problem?” she said, before she took matters into her own hands by performing her verse a cappella.
Later, Minaj pulled off a stunt that she actually planned for the music festival. When Jessie J‘s “Bang Bang” started playing, Ariana Grande joined her on stage to sing those high notes and dance during Minaj’s own assertive verses. Unlike their MTV Video Music Awards performance, where Minaj suffered a wardrobe malfunction, this live rendition of “Bang Bang” couldn’t gone smoother.

This is kind of shady. Jessie J and Ariana Grande have released a rap-free version of (late-)summer smash “Bang Bang”. That, dear friends, means that Nicki Minaj‘s cute verse is no longer with us. It’s not that uncommon for a featured artist to be removed for a remix but the whole appeal of the song is that it brought together three very different divas.
What we’re left with is a migraine-inducing scream-off between the British comeback queen and mini Mariah. Jessie’s powerful pipes win that battle (easily) but Nicki’s absence is palpable. Hopefully, this isn’t an official release and never finds its way to iTunes or the Barbz will revolt. On the bright side, this version gives you a whole new appreciation for the original.

From Usher‘s “She Came To Give It To You” to Beyonce‘s (officially) unreleased “***Flawless” remix, Nicki Minaj is everywhere right now. When you throw top 10 hits “Anaconda” and girl-power collaboration “Bang Bang” into the mix, it’s a pretty safe to assume that the 31-year-old never sleeps or is a cyborg sent from the future to improve the state of urban radio.
The extremely-busy rap diva’s latest high-profile feature is on August Alsina‘s “No Love (Remix)”. She lends him a verse and appears in the cheesy video as his girlfriend. Nicki discovers that her man is playing around but soon puts him in his place while rocking a suitably seductive outfit. The crooner eventually comes to his senses and pays her the attention she deserves. Watch the cliche-packed visual after the jump. More »
Its been a big weekend for Nicki Minaj. The “Anaconda” diva dropped by Beyonce and Jay Z‘s On The Run tour stop in Paris to perform “***Flawless” and is also rumored to have filmed the song’s much-anticipated visual while she was in town. (The 31-year-old definitely filmed a video for something). It only makes sense that the busy femcee would want to let off some steam by hitting up a couple of fashion shows and after-parties.
We all know that Nicki is no shrinking violet, so it shouldn’t be too surprising that she rocked an outfit that (really) highlighted her famous curves to Alexander Wang‘s party and then shared the raunchiest snaps on Instagram. The rap heavyweight merrily exposed her boobs to partygoers and looked like she was having a great old time. See more pics of her Paris party antics after the jump. More »
You can’t put anything over the Hive. As soon as they discovered Nicki Minaj was in Paris at the same time as Beyonce and Jay Z, Twitter exploded with speculation that the divas would perform their remix of “***Flawless”. And their suspicions were 100% correct. The “Anaconda” diva joined Queen Bey for tonight’s (September 12) On The Run tour stop, which is being filmed for HBO (it airs September 20).
Fans naturally took Instagram videos but no quality footage has emerged yet. (It’s only a matter of time). From the snippets that have surfaced online, it looks like a great performance with Beyonce in full diva mode (hairography, choreography, bodyography etc) and Nicki more than keeping up in her colorful bodysuit. The duo are rumored to be filming a video for the collaboration during their stint in Paris. See some low quality Instagram videos below. More »
