Hot Shots: Nicki Minaj Beams On ‘Pink Friday’ Tour

Published: Tuesday 19th Jun 2012 by David

Euphoria might be the best word to describe the vibe, when Nicki Minaj hit Amsterdam’s Heineken Music Hall as part of her ‘Pink Friday Tour’ last night.

Sporting a series of ‘unique’ get ups, the chart topping Rapper’s stop at the venue follows sold out performances in Japan and Sweden, but comes before she arrives in the UK this week for the tour’s British leg.

More below…

Her upbeat set comes two months after she became the 8th Black female artist to score two US #1 albums.

Beating efforts by fellow Islander Rihanna, it also makes her the first Female Rapper to do so- surpassing feats by Missy Elliott, Lauryn Hill and ‘Black Friday‘ darling Lil Kim.

Later on in the year, Minaj will launch the ‘Pop’ beverage with Pepsi Co. and is now the face of Adidas’ Fall/Winter campaign, shot by acclaimed creative Jeremy Scott.

    • WELL DAMN! June 19, 2012

      HA! haters have been saying this for the last 2 years. looks like her 14th minute of fame has outlasted your predictions. It’s time for you guys to stop being haters and become congradulaters. I can’t wait to see what Nicki has up her sleeves after the tour… STAY TUNED!!

    • WELL DAMN! June 19, 2012

      Lil’Kim’s Jump shot was a stupid ass aim but, NICKI’S CROSS OVER WINS THE LAST GAME. who’s touring worldwide? who has a pepsi deal? who has a barbie doll? who’s album went #1 in 4 countries? It damn sure ain’t Kimmy. now don’t you feel real stupid yea thats egg on yo face.

      • TARBABY RANGER June 19, 2012

        Who’s second album went platinum in a month… NOT NICKI’S that b**** barely gold.

    • Kissy_Minaj June 19, 2012

      Methinks Kim was mad jealous that she was NOT at the awards, as there was no reason for her to be. Lol

  10. Slaydele, Slay$ha, & R.I.P Amy Slayhouse June 19, 2012

    Lmao this talentless h** is still trying? Seeing her album sales I’d say she has about a year left before she’s pulling Keri Hilson numbers and joining her in her Wal-Mart parking lot tour.

    • Rachel June 24, 2012

      Calling nicki a h** when you stan for that c** guzzling tramp kesha.

  11. sincerelyzari_OTM June 19, 2012

    Nic slayed. You mod?

    • Slaydele, Slay$ha, & R.I.P Amy Slayhouse June 19, 2012

      Not with them album sales she hasn’t

      • Kissy_Minaj June 19, 2012

        Album sales are climbing, U mod? plus the figures she’s pulling in from these tours will eat Kim’s whole career!

  12. Josh June 19, 2012

    lol haters on this post

    Yeah her sales in the US are low, but they are STEADY. She is at over 500k with only ONE major single. Starships has not left the top ten since it’s release FIVE MONTHS AGO. Beez is doing really well on urban, but of course nobody cares because the general public doesn’t give a crap about hip hop anymore.

    And her international numbers are SLAYING – and her tour is a MAJOR success. Doing things NO OTHER FEMALE RAPPER HAS DONE.

    So while her 500k in the US (so far, we all know Nicki has longevity in sales) isn’t a major number, to say she is a flop is dumb and to say her 15 minutes are up is also dumb. The US is NOT the only music market.

    If she is “done” with anything, it may be the hip hop side because their cheap asses can’t buy singles or albums. But Nicki is embraced by mainstream, who appreciates both her pop and hip hop side, so nobody cares. Urban people are so conservative and annoying.

    Keep wishing.

    Nicki will continue massive singles like Starships, Pound The Alarm, Va Va Voom and Whip It, Pepsi ads, Adidas ads, Ice Age 4 and y’all will stay mad :((((((

    • TM June 19, 2012

      WWWWOOOOOW I Love Thisss.. Tell Them H***!!

    • Kissy_Minaj June 19, 2012

      Ha ha ha you tell em, they stay mad cause she keeps winning. All they have to go on is slow album sales in the US. As if the US is the only place to sell records. They still have Va Va Voom, Pound the Alarm, HOV Lane, Champion, Whip It, I am Your Leader, Marilyn Monroe, Masquerade to weep over when they drop. Cause they will all slay. To me HOV Lane is the new Did It On Em. Haters will weep!

  13. Speaks truth June 19, 2012

    A friend of mine who was at the show in Amsterdam said that nicki said she would be back in October with YMCB????

  20. Teacher June 19, 2012

    I don’t consider Nicki an islander! She claims NY!

  21. NaturalBeauty June 19, 2012

    I heard she slayed. Why was the Amsterdam show much bigger? Like that s*** was huge. The fact that she did Itty Biggy Piggy & the audience knew all the words is just crazy. She is a crossover artist who manages to have sold out shows in Japan & Europe, she seems to be much bigger overseas.

  22. Yea i said it June 19, 2012

    she cant do those big arenas like RIh-Rih!

  23. sell-out June 19, 2012

  24. BEYONCE’S WEAVE June 19, 2012

    She slayed. All the FLOP b****** should take notes. Attention, Class in session, can all the flop b****** FLOPyonce, Kelly FLOPland, Alexandra FLOP, Lil’ FLOP, Rita FLOPa please seat down and pay attention.

  25. Truth June 19, 2012
