As far as recent Nicki Minaj sightings in Vegas, she was part of the huge iHeartRadio music festival held in September, where she performed on the second day. Decked out in a purple skirt and pink chicken wing necklace, she performed a full set of her Pink Friday hits, plus featured verses including her rap from Birdman’s newest single “Y.U. Mad.” She’s also played several dates throughout the year in Vegas (including at Electric Daisy Carnival festival in June), and hosted her last birthday extravaganza last December at Tao night club.
