Got student debt? Nicki Minaj might be able to help.
Blame it on those early hints of summer, or perhaps there's something in the water, but it was a wacky weekend all around. Karrueche Tran is standing up for herself against Chris Brown, Martha Stewart was caught flipping the bird in an art gallery and Nicki Minaj proved to be even more wonderful than we could image. Here's what you missed over the weekend.
Nicki Minaj is the Hero We All Deserve
Christmas has come early for a bunch of lucky Barbz in Nicki Minaj’s Kingdom (still haven’t gotten used to that yet). What started out as a contest in which one lucky Twitter member would be selected to attend the upcoming Billboard Music Awards as Minaj’s date on May 21 by using the hashtag #NickiBBMAs, someone suggested that an even better prize would be for Nicki to help pay the winner’s college tuition. Not only did she respond, but she’s since followed through on her word!
Show me straight A's that I can verify w/ur school and I'll pay it. Who wants to join THAT contest?!?!🤷🏽♀️ Dead serious. Shld I set it up? https://t.co/czH715u64a— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) May 7, 2017
On Saturday, the “Super Bass” rapper first set the bar at perfect 4.0 GPA, but as she learned about different people entering the contest and their unique situations, she softened her rules. People sent in requests for supplies and books, ranging from $500 to $1200, and she donated towards their education without flinching. One person tweeted that they needed $3000 more to cover the cost of three classes, and Minaj happily obliged.
That's it? I'll send it tmrw. dm me ur bank info babe. Next! https://t.co/i4TVmsqDoA— NICKI MINAJ (@NICKIMINAJ) May 7, 2017
After the contest ended, Minaj promised to follow through on her word — but not without adding a little humor.
