The Pink Friday 2 era is upon us, and Nicki Minaj started things off by embracing her softer side at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards.
The rapper delivered a surprisingly sentimental performance for the cheering crowds at New Jersey’s Prudential Center, as she delivered two songs from the upcoming follow-up to her beloved 2010 debut album, Pink Friday. Minaj started the set with her latest single, “Last Time I Saw You,” standing with a bejeweled mic stand as she sang the rap ballad. The star was dressed in an oversize black ruffled coat, which she partly shed to reveal her jeweled black bodysuit underneath—which was completely transparent, showing off her black bra and underwear.
Following the slow song, Minaj performed a snippet of an unreleased track, as she broke into a traditional rap track reminiscent of her early mixtapes. The crowd broke into cheers as she asked if they were ready for the upcoming release.
Earlier tonight, Minaj made her return to the red carpet in a pale pink bridal Barbie look by Dolce & Gabbana, which featured a strapless satin bodysuit, a transparent lace mermaid skirt, and a matching see-through veil with lace trim. Further accessories included floral earrings and an array of diamond jewelry, and she completed the look with extra-long bejeweled pink nails.
The “Moment 4 Life” rapper announced earlier this summer that her fifth studio album would arrive on November 17. In her Instagram announcement, the star thanked her fans for their support and hinted at an upcoming tour, promising more details closer to Pink Friday 2’s release.
