It’s been silence on the dial since Nicki Minaj‘s Grammy snub earlier this month. The H.B(arb).I.C.hasn’t tweeted to her Barbz since December 5, and has been fairly low-key after a controversial second half of the year. The Queens rapper set aside her ongoing beef with New York’s Hot 97 to host its Christmas Extravaganza at NYC’s Webster Hall. Well, you know how we saw her arrive fashionably late to her first day on American Idol during her Nicki Minaj: My Truth special on E! Then there should be no surprise she showed up to her hosting gig at 2:30 a.m. She’s Nicki Minaj and can’t be bothered with arriving on time.
According to Hip Hop Wired, once the diva arrived she made VIP her humble abode for the night until the crowd booed her. Attendees were confused as to why the “Starships” rapper wasn’t performing. Mr. Cee clarified that she was only there to host. And since they weren’t getting a performance Nicki’s fans requested that she, at the very least come to the stage because, you know, how can you host from VIP? The night ended with a very uneventful twerk contest. Hey, what do you expect from one the biggest superstars out? Hosting NY’s biggest hip-hop and R&B radio station’s Christmas Extravaganza is like charity work for her.
