Head Barb In Charge Nicki Minaj accepted her Best Female Hip-Hop artist award from fellow Caribbean celeb, rapper Busta Rymes at the 2012 BET Awards which took place in LA on Sunday (July 1).
A stark contrast to her shocking exorcism-inspired Grammy performance earlier this year which offended Catholic League, last night’s performance, was err understated?? Despite the skin-tight and revealing leggings, he monotone black colour scheme, definitely revealed a toned-down Nicki, known for her colorful and quirky get-ups.
She kicked things off with “Champion”, a female-empowering track from her Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded album.
That was followed by her club anthem “Beez In The Trap” featuring G.O.O.D Music artist 2 Chainz who joined her onstage. She had the crowd rocking even Beyoncé rapped along in the audience while her hubby Jay-Z nodded his head to the catchy thumping beat.
Hmmm, wonder what Pete Rosenberg had to say about that act?
