Nicki sat courtside at the Los Angeles Lakers vs. Houston Rockets game in Los Angeles on April 10. Nicki went live on Instagram and filmed the game. I’ve added 19 HQ Pictures to the Gallery.

Jack White loves Nicki Minaj, and he loves her — and hip-hop’s current offerings — so much that he dubbed the genre “the new punk rock.”
In a new interview with Clash, White says that he sought out musicians who backed hip-hop artists on the road to flesh out the sound of his new album Boarding House Reach, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.
“JAY-Z goes on tour and he has a live band behind him,” he said. “That’s a specific type of musician who can do that; they can replicate samples and tones that an engineer or a producer came up with on a recording and perform them live. So those types of musicians I thought would be very inspiring to me, to just get to a new place that I’d never been before.”
He adds that hip-hop, “in a lot of ways” is “the new punk rock,” where artists performing in the jurisdiction of the genre are “doing the dangerous things — whether it’s Trippie Redd or Tekashi6ix9ine; these are a very punk, dangerous side of music.”
But Minaj, and her track “Only,” in particular, set a new standard for him and what he’s hoping to achieve in his work.
“I mean, some of those lyrics are like, ‘Holy shit!'” he told Clash. “I, as an adult, listening to that by myself, am shocked at some of the words that I’m hearing. But it’s brilliant! It’s brilliant to be able to say that, to be able to say whatever you want. I couldn’t get away with saying half of those things that Nicki Minaj says in that song. It’s just brilliant to see how far things have gone in that sense, and how cool it is for people to talk about these moments and say, ‘Wow, check this out.'”
Yesterday (Sunday April 8th), Nicki simply tweeted the number ‘4’, just to delete it shortly after. Many Fans think it could be the days till the release of Nickis 4th album. As “Music News & Rumors” claimed on Twitter, Label Staffers wanted Nicki to release her new album in early April, but Nicki refused to do so, because she doesn’t want to overshadow Cardi B. We’ll see what will happen next.
“The best female ever in hip-hop history”, Birdman said on Beats 1 yesterday (Tuesday April 03), where he promoted the soundtrack ‘Before Anythang: The Cash Money Story’.
“Missy went a little further than Kim….but not the level that Nicki at. She’s got the fashion, she just the icon. They got enough room in this game for everybody. With no disrespect, she’s got it, hands down.”
