Another crucial member of the Young Money crew will be in the house next Sunday during the MTV Video Music Awards. The crew’s resident bad girl, Nicki Minaj, will give her first-ever televised solo performance during the pre-show of the big event. The festivities kick off at 8 p.m. (live ET/ tape delayed PT), with Minaj warming up the party with a performance of her hit single, “Your Love.”
And starting on Tuesday (September 7), Minaj will kick off a Twitter contest in which 10 fans will win a front-row seat to watch her performance. For information on the contest, follow both @NickiMinaj and @MTVTJ. Winners will be announced on Friday, September 10.
“I am truly honored to be a part of this year’s VMAs. Just yesterday I was an underground female rapper. See, Barbz? Dreams do come true,” Minaj said in a statement announcing her participation in the big show.
