The Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York got loud and wild on Tuesday night, with the star-studded Tidal X: 10/20 benefit concert. Jay Z, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Usher, Nick Jonas and T.I. were just a few of the huge names that graced the stage.
However, nobody brought the house down as hard as Nicki Minaj and Beyonce when they performed their song “Feeling Myself.”
Nicki kicked off the song by herself and was joined by Beyonce soon after. The audience could hardly handle all the awesomeness.
The performance included group dance battles, curve-hugging costumes and perfect poses. What else could you ask for?
Clearly excited with the results, Nicki said “it was epic.”
“Oh my god, when Beyonce came out, you could feel it,” the rapper told ET backstage after the performance. “It was electrifying. The place went nuts. It was like shaking, like, it was so insane — and I was excited as a fan, too. Like, I was excited that they were about to experience this, because both of our fans have been threatening us online, saying that if we didn’t perform together, they were going to hunt us down.”
“I feel like great women always raise the bar for each other and, so, it’s always great,” Nicki added. “I learn so much for her, and I genuinely like her. Whenever we smile on stage, it’s genuine. Um, I really, really love her. I mean, what else can I say? I think it’s great for women in general.”
The Weeknd brought out a special guest during his musical performance on Saturday Night Live. In the middle of “The Hills” Nicki Minaj appeared on stage to rap a verse that’s part of the official remix, now available on iTunes.
The Weeknd’s chart-topping hit “The Hills” just received a stellar guest appearance. On Saturday evening (Oct. 10), Nicki Minaj revealed that she’s on the official remix to the Million $ Mano and Illangelo-produced track on her Instagram. But she’s not the only emcee to feature on the melody. Eminem also lends his rapid fire delivery to The Weeknd’s track. “The Hills” is featured on the Canadian singer’s third album Beauty Behind The Madness which was received to critical-acclaim.
“All Eyes On You” enters Top 10 at rhythmic radio.

The New York Times Magazine: The Passion of Nicki Minaj
Nicki is on the cover of The New York Times Magazine for October 2015. I’ve also added two new photos from session.
Nicki Minaj is the world’s biggest female hip-hop star, a top pop star and the first woman to achieve success in both genres. Like Beyoncé, who performed recently in Central Park with the words ‘‘boss’’ and ‘‘hustler’’ flashing on screens behind her, along with a grainy video in which she smashed a vacuum and a sewing machine, Minaj has become expert at modeling the ways that women can wield power in the industry. But she has also drawn attention to the ways in which power can be embodied by a woman standing up for herself and speaking her own mind. Minaj’s behavior isn’t exclusive to her tracks; she also exhibits it in the national telenovela that she, like the rest of these women, to a greater or lesser degree, is running about herself, feeding the public information about her paramours, ex-paramours, peccadilloes and beefs, all of it delivered in social media’s short, sharp bursts.

Nicki Minaj to Produce, Star in New Autobiographical TV Show
Nicki Minaj is taking her entrepreneurial skills to television, as the rapper revealed plans to executive produce and star in a scripted comedy series based on her life for ABC Family.
The as-yet-untitled series will be based on Minaj’s pre-superstar life in Queens, New York. The Nineties-set show will explore the Trinidad and Tobago-born artist’s “vibrant immigrant family and the personal and musical evolution that lead to her eventual rise to stardom,” reports Deadline.
“This is one of the more unique adventures I’ve ever embarked on,” Minaj told Deadline. “I couldn’t be more proud and excited to team up with an amazing group of people to give the world something really special.” Kate Angelo (Sex Tape, The Back-Up Plan) will be writing the series, with the show’s pilot set to be filmed in December in Queens.
