The "Queen" recognizes royalty.
Nicki Minaj is the self-proclaimed "Queen" in the game right now. Her album's title, as well as her intense behavior following its drop, indicates that she's serious about this status. Her latest Instagram post is refreshing within this context.
Minaj hopped online to celebrate one of her collaborators, Beyonce Knowles, who turned 37 today. She uploaded a video that shows part of one of their joint performances. Both entertainers stare each other down with intensity before bursting out in laughter.
The caption attached to the post echoes some of the words Nicki shouts at the end of the video when she hypes up the crowd. It also expresses appreciation for the birthday girl.
"Make some noise for the mthrPhknQueenB. Happy Birthday BEY! Love & adore you & I THANK you for everything you’ve ever done for me. I’ll never forget it. "
The positivity is delightful to see. Although Nicki Minaj has been dragging industry figures and companies after her album's disappointing debut, she still takes take to show love to her fellow female entertainers. She even took time at the VMAs to step in for Normani, when Tiffany Haddish mocked Fifth Harmony. The sisterhood is strong even though people like to paint Nicki as self-serving.
