HIT OR MISS: Nicki Minaj In Versace At Billboard’s Women in Music Event X Debuts “Roman In Moscow”
Nicki Minaj was on hand to collect her “Rising Star” award at Billboard’s 6th Annual Women in Music event at the Capitale in NYC. The 28-year-old rapper rocked an extra long blonde wavy wig with blunt bangs and a figure hugging embellished black and white gown from the Versace Resort 2012 collection.
“To everyone out there, I am so proud of you for showing me this can be done. You can be your own boss, and make your own music, and project an image you believe in and keep good morals and all that good stuff,” she said during her acceptance speech.
Nicki is also up for “Best New Artist,” “Best Rap Album” (Pink Friday), and “Best Rap Performance” (“Moment 4 Life” featuring Drake) of the year at the 2012 Grammys.
She posed with one of her biggest fans, country music star Taylor Swift, who helped to make Nicki’s “Super Bass” a huge hit.
In an interview with Katie Couric after the event, Taylor gushed about Nicki, saying, “She’s one of my favorite artists to come along in the past couple of years, and Super Bass is my favorite song of the year.”
