Nicki Minaj took her skills to the Jay Leno show this week, performing the song “Pound the Alarm” from her “Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded” album. She did an interview with the host before the performance, looking quite sexy in an outfit that almost no one wears on a show like that.
Nicki mentioned to Jay that she used to be a waitress at Red Lobster back in the day and how she worked hard to get into the game. She is now one of the biggest artists in America and a prime money maker, showing few signs of slowing down any time soon. She brought her backup dancers, who was just as skantily clad as she was, and tore the place down.
Nicki’s performance and interview are at the 25 minute mark of the video above.
Nicki shot the “Pound the Alarm” video in Trinidad, where she was born.
“We’re at the ‘Pound the Alarm’ video shoot, in my homeland, where I was born. We’re here baby,” Minaj says in the camera. ”Trinidad!”
It looks like Nicki is having a ball. Maybe one day we can get some female rappers who don’t have to get naked to convince us that they have skills.
