‘I’m Obsessed with Him’: Nicki Minaj Goes on ‘Aunty’ Duties Backstage with DJ Khaled’s Son Asahd

Major key alert: Nicki Minaj and DJ Khaled‘s 9-month-0ld son Asahd spent some quality time together Friday night.

The tiny tot has been knocking back milestone after milestone in his short life so far — turning heads on red carpets, stealing the spotlight at award showshanging with A-list stars, flying on private jets, running up the talk show circuit, producing music, and gracing magazine and album covers along the way.

And now, he can check “delivering platinum plaques” off his list.

Asahd swung by to see Minaj on Friday night to deliver her a framed record symbolizing the success of “Do You Mind,” the hit Khaled track she guests on. And while there, he couldn’t help but pose with Minaj for some sweet snaps.

Of course, Minaj was thrilled to see her favorite (non-blood related) nephew. “Look @ aunty’s big boy!!!!!” the 34-year-old “Anaconda” rapper gushed on Instagram, captioning a shot of them together on her couch. “This little angel came bearing gifts. PLATINUM PLAQUE ALERT!!!!! #DoYouMind Thank You for all your hard work Asahd!!!!! @asahdkhaled @djkhaled love you!!!!!”

She also made a video with Asahd using a bunny filter and voice changed, thanking the sweet boy for giving her the gift as he sat on her lap.

“This made my night,” Minaj wrote in the caption. “I’m so obsessed with him. Cuteness overload, I can’t take it!!!”

Of course, followers of Minaj know this isn’t the first time the star has praised Asahd on social media. She was one of the first stars to meet Khaled’s son, just weeks after his birth.

“My son ASAHD KHALED !! Wit @nickiminaj !!!!!” Khaled, 41, wrote on Instagram after sharing a photo of the two. “ICONS HANG WIT ICONS ! ICON ALERT!”

Minaj also talked about how much she loved seeing Ashad on Twitter, writing “I told Khaled whenever I see this lil King/CEO on my timeline I light up. He just makes me so happy yo. I wanna eat his cute face & chin!”

The love appears to be mutual, as Ashad (or rather, one of Ashad’s parents) shared a photo on Minaj on his Instagram account Friday night. “Had to stop by the studio to give @nickiminaj some beats and this platinum plaque of daddy’s @djkhaled,” Ashad “wrote.” “I’m having a busy Friday night.”

Khalad and his longtime partner, Nicole Tuck, welcomed their son in October 2016. He documented the entire process on his favorite app, Snapchat.

One month into being a father, Khaled told PEOPLE he was finding parenthood easy so far. “There’s nothing hard about it. Every moment I get a chance to be with my son is such an amazing moment,” he said. “This is something that you’re supposed to be grateful for and embrace.”

“He’s just like me. He has great energy,” Khaled continued. “He’s got the glow of a young mogul — the glow of a young icon. He’s amazing.”

Fatherhood has proved to be the “biggest blessing I’ve ever had in my life,” Khaled said. “My son is so much joy. He brings me so much joy, and it’s a feeling that I can’t explain.”

Nicki Minaj Offers To Pay Fans’ College Bills On Twitter

In one hour, Nicki Minaj committed to paying thousands of dollars to help more than a dozen students pay their bills.

After one fan asked the star for some assistance, Minaj launched an impromptu tuition-savings contest on Twitter late Saturday night.

Minaj was in the midst of tweeting about a contest in which she would fly the winner to hang out with her at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, when she got a response she likely didn’t expect.

The star was interested.

Within minutes, requests flooded her feed. Minaj responded to fans’ who asked for money to pay off loans and funds to afford books, housing and tuition. Minaj asked for proof that she could verify with various schools, so fans started tweeting copies of transcripts and bill statements.

Minaj ended the night about an hour later, saying she may make the same offer sometime in the future.

TMZ reported that as of Sunday, three fans confirmed they had received funds from Minaj.

Nicki Minaj Says ‘Racism’ Is The Reason This Designer Won’t Take Her Call

Giuseppe, what’s good? 

Nicki Minaj put the acclaimed Italian luxury shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti on blast Friday after the brand’s PR people apparently refused to take Minaj’s call. 

The rapper unleashed a tweetstorm about the incident, and here’s how it went down: 

[Editor’s note: Minaj did wear the sneakers, though it appears she wore them for Glamour in 2011.] 

The 34-year-old entertainer’s problems with Zanotti arose when she found out the designer was making capsule collections with other artists (most recently Zayn Malik and Jennifer Lopez), which would presumably give the collaborator a share of the shoe’s profits. 

Minaj claimed that because she was black, she could only “inspire” Zanotti, but not partner with him: 

Minaj retweeted a fan’s photo of some of the “Nicki” shoes that show up when you search for them in the designer’s collection: 

Toward the end of her Twitter call-out, Minaj said she wouldn’t permit this “racism and disrespect.” She called on her fans to start Tweeting or Instagramming the hashtag #GiuseppeWhatsGood, a reference to her famous line to Miley Cyrus at the MTV Awards. 

Soon enough, her #Giuseppe hashtag was trending on Twitter: 

Minaj again clarified to fans that is wasn’t about the money, “just the disrespect:”  

UPDATE, 3:21 p.m.:  Zanotti appears to have taken the “Nicki” shoes down from his website, which led to another round of tweets from Minaj: 

The Huffington Post reached out to Minaj and Zanotti and will update this post accordingly.

Nicki Minaj Talks Orgasms And Wage Equality Like The Queen She Is

Nicki Minaj is a woman who knows what she wants and gets it, in bed and in the workplace.

The rap goddess graces the cover of Cosmopolitan’s July issue, and opened up about how orgasms are a must for her.

“I demand that I climax,” she said. “I think women should demand that. I have a friend who’s never had an orgasm in her life. In her life! That hurts my heart. It’s cuckoo to me. We always have orgasm interventions where we, like, show her how to do stuff. We’ll straddle each other, saying, ‘You gotta get on him like that and do it like this.'”

“She says she’s a pleaser. I’m a pleaser, but it’s fifty-fifty,” Minaj added.

Minaj also makes sure she gets what she wants when it comes to business matters. She is an advocate for women asking questions and being vocal in the workplace — including discussions about salaries.

“Women are uncomfortable talking about money,” she told Cosmo. “I know it’s taboo to discuss it at work. Technically, you shouldn’t, but you need to know what people around you are making. Otherwise, you’re not going to know what you’re worth. You have to ask questions. ‘What is this person getting?’ Do your research. I’ve always been pretty competitive in terms of my pay.”

Read more from Minaj’s interview in Cosmo’s July issue, on newsstands June 9.

Azealia Banks Calls BET Awards ‘Bogus,’ Says Nicki Minaj Wins ‘Every Year’

Azealia Banks is never one to hide her feelings, and it’s safe to say she’s really not feeling her BET Award nomination for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist.

Iggy Azalea, Nicki Minaj, Trina, Tink and Dej Loaf are up for the honor along with Banks, who took to Twitter on Monday to express her thoughts on the “bogus” award show:

Minaj certainly has been a favorite at the BET Awards and has taken home the Best Female Hip-Hop Artist for the last five consecutive years. She has yet to respond to Banks’ comments, but she’s likely basking in the afterglow of dropping the video for “Feeling Myself” with Beyonce.

Besides, Banks claims her comments weren’t supposed to be taken as jabs at Minaj anyway:

Nicki Minaj And Beyoncé Have An Awesome Summer Party In ‘Feeling Myself’ Video

Tidal subscribers were in luck on Monday when Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé dropped the video for “Feeling Myself” exclusively on the streaming service. The song, which appears on Minaj’s “The Pinkprint,” first leaked online last December. And now the video for “Feeling Myself” has leaked.

In the video, Minaj and Queen Bey play with squirt guns in inflatable pools in pink fur coats, eat cheeseburgers in a bounce house, have a champagne pool party and share Now and Laters. It’s pretty much the summer party of your dreams. (And proof that bucket hats only look good on Beyoncé.)

Beyoncé previously released her video for her new song “Die With You” on the artist-owned streaming service last month. Soon after, Rihanna released her video for “American Oxygen” and Jay Z released his music video for “Glory” via Tidal. There are also rumors that a possible Jay Z and Beyoncé joint album will exclusively premiere on Tidal, proving that the streaming service is serious about rewarding its users, especially after Jay Z’s special Tidal shows over the weekend.

The “Pinkprint” rapper appears on the cover of the Jan. 15 issue of the magazine. Inside her cover story, titled “Darling Nicki,” she talks about wanting to inspire women to be sexy and smart.

“With a video like ‘Anaconda,’ I’m a grown-ass fucking woman!” she said. “I stand for girls wanting to be sexy and dance, but also having a strong sense of themselves. If you got a big ol’ butt? Shake it! Who cares? That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be graduating from college.”

BET Awards Honor Pharrell, Beyonce, Nicki Minaj And August Alsina

LOS ANGELES, June 29 (Reuters) – R&B star Pharrell, rapper Nicki Minaj and newcomer August Alsina led the winners at the Black Entertainment Television (BET) awards on Sunday, which also honored veteran soul singer Lionel Richie.

Pharrell kicked off the show with “Come Get It Bae” and won two awards, including best male R&B/pop artist. Beyonce was named best female R&B/pop singer, and closed the show with a sultry performance of “Partition” with husband Jay Z. The couple also won best collaboration for “Drunk In Love.”

Richie, 65, received the lifetime achievement award for his prolific career as part of Motown group The Commodores and as a solo artist.

“Soul is a feeling, not a color. Talent is a god given gift and not a category, and out of the box is the magical place where true talent goes to thrive and breathe,” Richie said as he accepted the award.

John Legend, Ledisi and Yolanda performed Richie’s classic love songs “Hello”, “Still” and The Commodores’ “Brick House” and “Jesus is Love”. Richie sang “Easy” and “All Night Long”.

The BET awards, held in Los Angeles, celebrates black musicians, actors and athletes. It is hosted by cable TV network Black Entertainment Television, part of Viacom Inc., and the show was preceded by violence at unofficial parties ahead of the show in which one person was killed.

New Orleans singer Alsina was named best new artist and Lil Wayne’s rap collective Young Money scored best group.

Drake won best male hip hop artist, but was not available to collect his award. Minaj was named best female hip hop artist and threw a little dig at other rappers by saying: “When you hear Nicki Minaj spit, Nicki Minaj wrote it.”

Comedian Chris Rock hosted the show, throwing jokes and jibes and handing out chicken and waffles to the audience. The almost four-hour ceremony toplined high-profile performances from some of the music world’s biggest names.

Usher referenced his 20-year career with a medley of his hits, Minaj performed “Pills N’ Potions” on a stage with giant psychedelic mushrooms and R&B star Chris Brown joined Lil Wayne to perform “Loyal”.

Australian newcomer Iggy Azalea joined rapper T.I. to perform “No Mediocre” and her hit single “Fancy”. The show also served up 1990s nostalgia with R&B groups Troop, Color Me Badd and Silk singing a medley of classic hits.

Oscar-winning historical drama “12 Years A Slave” swept the film categories with Oscar-winning newcomer Lupita Nyong’o named best actress and Chiwetel Ejiofor named best actor. Neither were on hand to accept their awards.

Civil rights activist Myrlie Evers-Williams accepted the humanitarian award commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act signed into law in 1964.
