Nicki Minaj Sizzles on ‘Today’ Summer Concert Series

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj fired up Rockefeller Plaza with a red-hot performance on the “Today” Toyota Summer Concert Series. Fresh off the U.S. leg of her “Pink Friday” tour, the blonde Barb served up her hit singles “Starships” and “Pound the Alarm” and dedicated “I Am Your Leader” and “Beez in the Trap” to her “gritty Barbz in the audience.” Nicki was suffering from a bruised vocal chord, but made it through the performance with some help from Jordin Sparks, who was praying for her recovery.

“Jordin Sparks was praying for me backstage cuz she had a bruised vocal chord too! Haha! We were so dramatic!” tweeted Nicki, who posed for a photo with the “Fab Five” gold medal gymnasts of Team USA including Gabby Douglas.

    Remember when female rappers wore CHANEL, VERSACE, FENDI, & ETC.?
    NOW THEY WEAR SPANDEX & SHIT.

    “KING”? LMAO her big ass cant even fit real clothes…
    At least when Rihanna & Beyonce compete, they both can fit and wear high fashion couture, getting major label endorsments and have designers begging to have them rock their garments at the Met Ball.

    When was the last time Alexander Wang or Zac Posen designed a dress a Nicki?…. NOOO SHE STILL SHOPS AT ‘KID’S ARE US’, AND ‘STRIPPER LINGERIE’ SALES.

    Honestly those 16 year old Olympic medalist’s she posed with are far more talented than Nicki will ever be.

    But that’s KING right? tuh

    @HoneyGirl, WHEN I SAY MAJOR LABEL, I DONT MEAN JEREMY SCOTT (NOT HIGH FASHION WHEN IT INCLUDES ADDIDAS SPORTSWEAR) & VIVA GLAM (IS COSEMETICS). I KNOW SOME SMART ASS WOULD TRY IT.

    @HoneyGirl, What about her custom Giuseppe Zanotti sneakers or custom Versace dress, robe, & body suit? & what’s this about Nicki not fitting into “real clothes” when all of her award show looks are high fashion? Oscar De La Renta dress for the AMA, Givenchy dress for the 2011 Grammys, Versace look for the 2012 Grammys. She also got invited to the Met being that Ana Wintour took a liking to Nicki at the De La Renta show room but Nicki couldn’t attend since she was touring in Australia at the time.
