Beyoncé and Nicki Minaj

Curvalicious. Beyoncé brought out Nicki Minaj to perform the “Flawless (Remix)” for the first time during the final two shows of the “On the Run Tour” at Paris’ Stade de France last month. Fan-filmed footage quickly made its way online, but now VEVO has premiered official video from the performance, which aired during Beyoncé and Jay Z’s “On the Run” HBO special.

Bey introduced Nicki by her real name, Onika, to the 80,000 fans in attendance. Sporting matching Versus Versace outfits, Nicki spit her bossy verse while Bey danced alongside her.

After it was over, Nicki gushed about the experience. “It was just very emotional for me to be there because I know it was a big show,” she told Skyrock FM. “It was the last bit of shows for Beyoncé and Jay Z, so I was very honored to be a part of it.”

Nicki Minaj is heating up the ‘Gram once again. The “Anaconda” rapper set off a frenzy by putting her ample assets on display. Nicki snapped a couple selfies of herself rocking a black bob wig, but it was hard not to stare at her chest. The busty Barb sported a lacy black bra that showed off her breasts, and even let a little nipple slip.

Her fans did not let the wardrobe malfunction go unnoticed. “We’re not looking at the wig,” said one commenter.
