I don't care too much for her, but I did see the episode of Ellen that those two girls performed on and she surprised them by showing up. She said that she had only been contacted by the show the night before, so she did not have time to buy them anything, but wanted to take them on a shopping trip the next day.
On the one hand, I think it's sweet that she wants them to be there. On the other hand, it sounds like she's stroking her own ego…
I agree with Cathy. However, Nicki has been on a downward spiral for a few months now: wasn't she the one who fought with the help, pulling hair, scratching eyes out, etc?
Whatever it is, Nicki was on my radar for new special talent a year ago, then simply dropped out. I personally dislike diva-ish behavior, and much more prefer to hear about stars being gracious, rather than abusive.
when Gwen Stephani promoted her solo album,she had a staff of 20 peoples with her in Europe more 2 japanese girls paid to sit next to her during the interview
Wasn't she a popular answer for a R&B singer who has serious drug problems? Yeah, I can see it
I don't follow her, but maybe she needs the side show to detract from the quality, or lack of , of her live show?
But Pomme, that was Gwen Stefani. This is Nicki Minaj.
My question is, were the American Music Awards ever good? I always equated them with the People's Choice Awards. If the person was in the audience, they were winning. I always thought it sucked the worst.
Either drop her or deal with it. I have a hard time feeling sorry for the Awards Show – if they want a certain artist who is famous for performing in a certain way, that's what you're going to get! Why on earth would she tone down her act, which is why she's famous in the first place? I'm no Minaj fan, but I don't see the point in forcing her to do a performance that isn't really authentic.
Air commercials during her performance, so she can do what she wants. Problem solved.
Nicki, meet Foxy Brown. Foxy Brown, Nicki. I'm sure you guys will be sharing a room on The Surreal Life or a jail cell for beating up a manicurist in the near future, so please, get acquainted.
I actually think having the two young British girls perform is FANTASTIC! How amazing will it be for them? Yes, it is a bit ego stroking but whatever.As for the phallic vibrating thing- uhhhh. just say no Nikki, just say no
I watch Ellen everyday, & the 2 British darlings have been on twice. The last time they were on, Ellen actually "hired" the little girls to do red carpet interviews for her, as she has done in the past with other audience members/fans.
So, Ellen would be the one flying them out & putting them up, not the AMA's.
Although, if I were their parents I would not want my child on stage with Nikki & her dildo.
Nicki needs to do something to add some umph to those boring dead dry sorry excuse for a performer antics she pulls on stage.
Dildo + children? Who does she think she is, Rihanna?
"Who does she think she is, Rihanna?" Sounds like she's trying to be. Great thing about her demands is that either she gets them, upping the ante for the next time she does an award show, or she doesn't get them but we'll all be talking about it so it's free publicity. (Think about JLo's bizarre all-white dressing room demands from a few years ago.)
