Nicki Minaj proved to be the Queen of last night’s BET Awards when she went to accept the nod for Viewers’ Choice (“Only” feat. Drake, Lil’ Wayne, and Chris Brown) and literally forgot what award she was getting.
“I ’wanna thank you guys for the support on The Pinkprint,” she said before things got confusing. After a long pause, Nicki asked, “What was this award for? I’m sorry.” When she realized what it was, she then got pumped AF. “Oh my god! Thank you,” she exclaimed, subsequently saving her speech and slaying our existences. It’s a no-flaws-detected moment, if there ever was one. [USA Today]
