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 will.i.am.
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 will.i.am was wearing a black face?
