Diva Database: Nicki Minaj

The 40th American Music Awards – Show

Her mixtape started a record label bidding war. That’s how bad this hip-hop diva is lyrically. She chose to roll with Lil’ Wayne and she subsequently hit the charts hard in 2010, her first year out, when her song “Your Love” topped the Billboard Hot 100 and she was featured on seven songs that hit the top 100 all at the same time. Minaj has made her mark and she is unabashedly staking her claim on the music world with attention-getting outrageousness, outright challenging divas that have been in the game for a minute. Did you catch the catfights between Minaj and Mariah on “American Idol?”
