nicki minaj promises to pay her fans' college fees
Nicki's taking some pressure off her luckiest — and studious — fans.
Nicki Minaj's Sunday afternoon took a rather unexpected turn yesterday when a meet-and-greet contest was hijacked by the Barbz of Twitter. It began when the queen offered to fly one lucky fan — from anywhere across the globe — to America to meet her. Because, of course, Minaj can afford to do things like that.
Twitter user @cjbydesign spotted a neat opportunity and asked if that meant Nicki would be down to pay his college tuition, too.
Nicki's response? "Show me straight A's that I can verify w/ur school and I'll pay it." Soon after, fans flooded her with requests to help with their book fees and enrollment charges, and Minaj complied. "I'll pay a cpl of them. Send ur bank info & ur contact," she wrote to one fan with multiple student loans, the lowest still coming in at more than $2,000. After agreeing to help out a handful of fans, Nicki called it a day — "Let me make those payments tmrw then see if I have any money left," she joked, but promised she'd be back at it with the blessings in a few months.
