Nicki Minaj Drops to Knees after Meeting Idol Lauryn Hill
Nicki Minaj was floored at the end of last week after she got the chance to meet her idol Lauryn Hill in Brooklyn’s Barclay Centre to take part in the Tidal X: 1015 Charity Concert to help raise money for the Robin Hood Foundation alongside other charities dedicated to children’s health and education.
In a video posted to Minaj’s Instagram account, she proved that sometimes it is perfectly safe to meet your idols. She captioned the video “Excuse me while I have an outer body experience. Shaking, crying, a MESS!!!! This lady is the reason. Omg. The QUEEN. Goddess! The epitome! The bar! The *faints* Ms Lauryn Hill told me to keep “spittin dat fire”. Is this real life!????”
Minaj went on to get rather political during her performance at the charity concert saying that men want women who simply stroke their egos, and seemingly took shots against Melania Trump, referring to her as "brainless", whilst comparing her to strong women like Hilary Clinton and Michelle Obama.
