One of the most popular female singers and rapper, Nicky Minaj has always been in the limelight. Be it her performances, controversies or songs, she has had some serious issues with things over the years. This year, check out her New Year’s Eve performance and clash with boyfriend Meek Mill.
Dressed in a grey jumpsuit, Nicky Minaj looked all ready to welcome the New Year 2017 in Miami. The singer, who is currently dating Meek Mill, posted three pictures on her Instagram, all a proof of how awesome her NYE 2017 celebrations were!
The first of the three showed Nicky posing a side shot, resting her hands on a black car. Her figure-hugging grey suit was accessorized with a long silver neckpiece, watch and silver bracelet. She tied her braided locks in a bun and then letting them fall over her shoulder.
Nicky wore silver stud earrings, strappy sandals and a large ring, too. She opted for her signature dark eyes, nude lips and peach nails. It was captioned “HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!”
The second one showed her with three pretty ladies, partying away. The caption read “My lil cousins” and received more than 480,000 likes and 2,000 comments from her fans questioning the honesty of the caption.
The last one on Nicky Minaj’s Instagram had the Pink Friday star posing for the camera, a final one for her fans before the commencement of the New Year.
The star was in Miami hosting and performing at the New Year’s Eve 2017 party at E11VEN on Saturday in Miami. Minaj was chosen for the event a week and a half after Jennifer Lopez backed out of her performance for the evening, to spend quality time with her family.
Nicky Minaj’s Relationship Woes with Boyfriend Meek Mill:
The singer is in a relationship with hip-hop artist Meek Mill since the past two years.
A popular celebrity website received an email from an anonymous woman who claimed that she is also one of Meek’s girlfriends. Along with the email, details of Meek’s former flings were also revealed. “I know I’m a ‘side b****’ but technically, I was always supposed to be the only one,” wrote the woman and also indicated to the picture Mill posted on his Instagram of a woman wearing red lingerie.
Shortly thereafter, rumors of the duo’s split surfaced after Nicky ‘unfollowed’ Meek on Instagram and was also supposedly living separately, because of her boyfriend’s “ongoing cheating,” as stated by the website.
However, there are even speculations about the entire act being a publicity stunt. “Even while they were fighting on social media they were still texting each other and laughing. The way Nicki sees it, there is no such thing as bad publicity because publicity is what get your brand out there and make people more interested in your music,” said a source.
Nicky Minaj and Billy Eichner:
Billy Eichner’s show Billy on the Street shows the comedian going around the streets of New York and asking passerby’s opinions about his shows. However, looks like Nicky Minaj does not quite approve of his tactics. The Only star posted his clip on her Instagram and captioned it “He woulda got punched right in his neck as soon as he woulda shoved the mic in my face that aggressively. PSA: This is a dangerous game to play in the streets of NY.”
Nicky’s song Side to Side with Ariana Grande is currently #1 for the fourth time on Mediabase Pop Radio Airplay Chart.
