nicki minaj losing it over lauryn hill is the sweetest thing you’ll see today
The rapper literally dropped to her knees in devotion.
Despite being one of the most successful and beloved artists working today, Nicki Minaj isn't too big to have her own idols. And on Saturday night she got to meet one, bringing a teen dream to life, when she shared the stage with Lauryn Hill at the TIDAL X: 1015 benefit concert.
Speaking to the The Breakfast Club on Monday morning Nicki admitted she was so excited she could barely control herself. "I was at a loss for words. She was super sweet and gracious. She was in the room next to me the whole time, and I was nervous to even run into her like in the hallway," she gushed.
Nicki shared a video of her meeting Lauryn on her Instagram. Close to tears she literally drops to her knees, grasping at the icon's hands and declaring her love. In the accompanying caption she wrote, "Excuse me while I have an outer body experience. Shaking, crying, a MESS!!!!"
Nicki has been a devotee of Ms Hill since she was a kid, even selecting her quote, "To survive is to stay alive in the face of opposition," for her high school yearbook. We know they say you shouldn't meet your heroes, but we're taking this as an exception.
