Nicki Minaj - VMAs Performance Video

Nicki Minaj performs onstage during the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards pre-show at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday (September 12) in Los Angeles.

The 25-year-old rapper performed her single “Your Love” and “Check It Out” with Black Eyed Peas’ frontman

During the actual ceremony, Nicki joined Katy Perry onstage. Host Chelsea Handler referred to them as “boobilicious” and “bootylicious,” respectively. Hah!

Katy and Nicki presented Eminem with Best Male Video for “Not Afraid”! (Em wasn’t in the house, he had to fly to NY to perform with Jay-Z!)

WHY DO YOU THINK was wearing a black face?

    I liked it!!! She is not trying to be like Lady GaGa, yea right. She’s jus a character. And this performance was fun and silly. It really helped me not to take her so serious and jus hv with the music. I like her a whole lot more after watching this. She is really jus an actress.

    I like most of her music and I think she’s gorgeous, but I have to admit that she looks ridiculous here. If she was trying to look like a fool, mission accomplished.
