Nicki Minaj Performs ‘Roman Reloaded’ Concert on BET’s 106 & Park
Nicki Minaj Invaded BET’s 106 & Park on Tuesday (April 3) and shut it down! The teen video program dedicated its entire show to the Young Money superstar who just released her second LP ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ (see review here). Dressed in an all-lavender outfit with black stiletto boots, a pink-haired Minaj chatted with Terrance J about her career, her fashion sense and her future goals.
There were plenty of surprises for the Barbz, who lined up at the BET building since 7AM to see their Queen reign over 106 & Park. A couple of guests came through to co-sign Minaj as the most influential rapper in the game. Rappers 2 Chainz and Cam’ron, who appear on ‘Roman Reloaded,’ stopped by as well as Birdman who presented Nicki with a huge plaque signifying 3.8 million copies sold worldwide. In addition, Minaj was a judge for a fashion show featuring models displaying some of her signature looks from various magazine covers and she later danced to ‘Starships’ with a flash mob.
But the highlight of the episode was Minaj’s special mini-concert. She jumped onstage completely shoeless and ran through a medley of new material from the album including ‘Roman Reloaded,’ ‘HOV Lane,’ ‘I Am Your Leader’ (with Cam’ron), ‘Beez in the Trap’ (with 2 Chainz) and a stirring rendition of the album’s standout track ‘Champion.’ She finished her set with ‘Fire Burns,’ her fiery ballad about kicking an unfaithful boyfriend to the curb.
“I love you guys so much,” says Minaj as her Barbz cheered her name in unison. “You will never understand how you changed my life. And I love you. I want you to know that you are capable of all things.”
