Nicki Minaj is back in New York, where she is gearing up to be the musical guest on Saturday Night Live. Minaj will perform, as James Franco will serve as this week’s host. Friday she nearly caused a meltdown on social media when she posted two risqué photos over herself on Instagram. Wearing a deep plunging lace shirt, Minaj remarked, “SNL REHEARSALS R GIVING ME LIFE. WATCH TMRW”.
Don’t hurt em’ Nicki!
Meanwhile, with all the news Minaj’s boss and label mate Lil’ Wayne has been making this week, do you think she will address his gripes on the long running comedy sketch show? Minaj’s been quiet on Wayne’s Twitter smackdown of Cash Money Records and of longtime mentor Brian “Birdman” Williams. On Thursday afternoon, Weezy hopped on Twitter to voice his aggravations with he label and Birdman over his claims they won’t allow the release of Carter V, which is slated to drop on Dec. 9. Minaj’s own album, The Pinkprint is scheduled to be released a week later on, Dec. 15.
While Wayne went after Birdman and Cash Money, Minaj shot a promo video alongside Franco, where the two poked fun at NBC’s Peter Pan Live special and declared their friendship status. Watch the cute spoof below.
They have jokes. Catch Minaj and Franco on SNL tonight at 11:29 EST on NBC.
