Nicki Minaj did her diva duty by performing for the USO Presents “VH1 Divas Salute the Troops” at the Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego, Calif. The curly, blonde-haired femcee sang “Right Thru Me” before joining Katy Perry for Cyndi Lauper’s playful “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” in the televised portion of the show. She also delivered “Roman’s Revenge” and “Moment 4 Life” for the men and women of the military.
Despite the sometimes negative connotation, the raptress does not object to being called a diva. “It’s not a negative,” she tells VH1. “I always looked at Whitney and Mariah as divas because to me, they are women who took control of their careers and you can kinda tell that they are the brains behind their vision and behind their brand. And so yes, I’m a diva.”
