Nicki Minaj showed just how big her heart is by making one young fan’s dream come true. Five-year-old Damiyah Telemaque-Nelson was diagnosed with cancer in October, and her wish was to meet Nicki and get one of her pink wigs.

Washington Wizards point guard John Wall heard about Miyah’s story and made it his mission to make her dream come true. He used his celebrity to get Nicki’s attention, taking to social media to rally his followers.

“Fans I need your help to get my buddy Miyah’s wish granted. She’s a 5 year old battling cancer and her wish is to meet @NickiMinaj and get one of her pink wigs! I need your help, comment on this photo. Let’s get Miyah’s one of Nicki’s pink wigs!” wrote Wall.

It wasn’t long before Nicki responded with an Instagram post of her own. “Hi Miyah!!!!” she said. “Let’s see what we can come up with for a pretty little princess. ;)”

On Sunday, Nicki met the young Barb and presented her with her very own pink wig. In return, Miyah gave Nicki a bracelet.

“Looks like operation #helpMiyahMeetNicki was a success! #PinkWig4Miyah ~ Thank you @john_wall ;) she’s perfect!” said Nicki.

Family comes first. Nicki Minaj showed just how much she loves her little brother Micaiah by throwing him a 16th birthday party fit for a king on Saturday. The hip-hop mogul was surrounded by loved ones including her aunts, cousins, mother Carol, and boyfriend Safaree “ScaffBeezy” Samuels.

The birthday boy and Nicki’s older brother Jelani posed for a photo with their sis. “They can take it all. Just leave me with these two,” she tweeted. “Nothing else matters if u don’t have the ppl who hold your heart right by your side.”

She had the Cake Boss himself, Buddy Valastro, make a custom cake in honor of Micaiah’s favorite team, the New York Knicks, and arranged for birthday messages from some of her famous friends including Lil Wayne, Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Diddy, Fabolous, and Tyga.

“If u could only see how his face lit up when seeing these superstars. Lol. That’s all a big sister could ask for,” said Nicki.

Future Previews Nicki Minaj ‘Rockstar’ Collaboration

Future and Nicki Minaj

Future’s collaboration with Nicki Minaj didn’t make the tracklisting for Honest, and now we know why. The rapper previewed their “Rockstar” record during an album listening session in New York on Tuesday.

The DJ Clue-produced song features a sample of George Michael’s ’80s hit “Careless Whisper.”

But it will not be included on Future’s sophomore album because the British pop icon did not clear the sample. Future finally got the record cleared after changing the sampled hook, but Nicki was no longer interested.

During the listening, Future encouraged journalists to record the song and leak it, and a couple of them did just that. Listen to some clips below.
