Nicki Minaj upstaged the Easter Bunny when she shut down Best Buy at Westfield Culver City in Los Angeles on Saturday (April 7). After performing in Times Square the day before, the “Beez in the Trap” rapper jumped on a plane from New York to L.A. for her last of three U.S. album signings, following ones in New York and Philadelphia.
Nicki went back to NYC this morning after her stay in Philadelphia to hit up the Today Show! She sat down and interviewed with Matt Lauer before getting on stage and performing her hit “Starships” and the first-ever live performance of “Right By My Side”!
Lauer revealed that the “Beez In the Trap” music video will premiere today on Nicki’s official website, My Pink Friday. Can’t wait!
With her first album, we saw the Harajuku Barbie and Amber Rose get their “Thelma & Louise” on in the “Massive Attack” clip, and then saw Nicki the Ninja fight for her man in the “Your Love” video. In the clip for “Fly,” the reigning rap queen sang alongside Rihanna in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, and then, in the bright and cheery “Super Bass” vid, she proved that even the baddest Barbs just want to have fun. Makes you wonder what Nicki has in store visually for her sophomore LP, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, in stores Tuesday (April 3).
We’ve already gotten the Hype Williams-directed “Stupid Hoe,” but there is no telling what Nicki will do next — though we’ll soon find out. “You’re getting two videos: You’re getting the ‘Starships’ video, which I’m hoping it will hurry up and happen,” she told MTV News on Thursday after her “American Idol” performance in L.A.
Fans have already gotten a small taste of the ‘Starships’ vid thanks to the set pics that leaked earlier this month of Nicki in a pink bikini, but the Young Money hitmaker still has to do color corrections before the visual is complete.
Minaj plans to first release the video for her 2 Chainz-assisted single “Beez in the Trap.” “I actually finished the editing for ‘Beez in the Trap,’ which features 2 Chainz, and … I love that video,” Nicki gushed.
