Watch: Nicki Minaj Accepts ‘Game Changer’ Award, Tributes Juice Wrld at Billboard Women in Music Event

Published: Friday 13th Dec 2019 by Rashad

Nicki Minaj made history last night (December 12) when she became the first female rapper (second woman of color after Janelle Monae) to be recognized twice over her career at Billboard’s annual Women in Music event.

On hand to receive the ‘Game Changer’ award for her contributions to music and becoming the woman with the most placements on the Billboard Hot 100 ever (as we reported here), Minaj took to Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium stage to receive the honor after a moving intro from rising Pop songstress Normani.

During her heartfelt acceptance speech, Nicki not only reflected on her journey to the top of the Rap game but also paid tribute to fallen friend, former tour mate Juice Wrld (who passed away this week due to a reported drug overdose as we reported here).

    I hate the way she communicates. I want to root for her but her personality makes it hard. Also stop wearing shoes you can’t walk in.

    • Beam Me Up Scotty December 13, 2019

      What? Compared to most female rappers, she sounds like Einstein. Also, how can you say anything about her personality after she said such moving things about Juice Wrld? Get over your hating self.

    • C***** December 13, 2019

      She deserves this award. It’s a nice homage before her retirement! Since the first EP she always did what she loved and I thank u for all the bops she made.

    • FAF December 13, 2019

      The way sis communicates like what? Speaking clearly?

    • December 13, 2019

      Why because she doesn’t sound ignorant. you can actually hear every word she is saying clearly, you can tell from one word that she is intelligent and educated. same cr@p tyler swift was talking about in her speech of the crazy critique female artist gets and the males just get a pass.

    “after a moving intro from rising Pop songstress Normani.”

    Flop introducing flop.

    • C***** December 13, 2019

      Flop introduced flop?

      Who did C***** introduced honey I didn’t saw that part of the video..

      • Clarks0oñ December 13, 2019

        Camila doesnt introduce people,
        People introduce Camila on stage.

        Normani performs at McDonald’s , we have seen the video. Pathetic worthless trash

      • You Tried December 13, 2019

    The only queen we acknowledge in this household.

    • Clarks0oñ December 13, 2019

      Queens have number 1’s.
      Nicki doesn’t have that to her name

      It’s been how many years since the Mariah carey, nicki minaj fight on American idol?

      It’s so funny tho, mariah about to score another number one hit with a song that is 20+ years old
      While nicki still hasn’t got a number one

      • C***** December 13, 2019

        Queens make quality albums while DRAGQueens discount their new medíocre albums just to try do snatch #1 from a 60’s Rock band or a unknown rapper.
        Stop embarrassing yourself and dragmila

      • Clarks0oñ December 13, 2019

        Quality albums have number 1 songs in them.

        Nicki has never made an album that had a number 1 song on it.

        Camila has two albums that have a number 1 song on each of them
        1st album- havana
        Second album- seniorita

        Rihanna discounted unapologetic on the second day of release ,just so she could hit number 1, so sit down.
        Camila discounted her album only on amazon for 48 hours.

        Nicki after having 10000 features cant score a number 1, while a 30 year old mariah carey song is about to hit number one . Pathetic

      • FAF December 13, 2019

        I mean y’all talking about Mariah but how many versions of the song did it take to gain momentum and technically hasn’t she been trying to get this to number one since 94? So that’s failed shade

  4. Ratedxxx December 13, 2019

    Dam she looks great…

    I love her speach…

    At least she doesnt sound like a hoodrat

  5. Lou-Andrew Rodriguez December 13, 2019

    She looks amazing. Sounds amazing.

    And her speech was beautiful.

    All you haters can be left in 2019.

    • K.O. December 13, 2019

      She showed her true face as a narcissic pervert too many times before, the truth has been revealed and that’s why she retired from the game, this is the Real reason she will Never tell, of course. As any narcissic pervert she’s using anything she can find to make herself relevant and seeing as a nice person, that’s just manipulation but people are too simple mind to understand it.

  6. Only facts December 13, 2019

    So cardi and Nicki both went back to the black wig with bangs this week??

    Hey Normani!!

  7. Just Sayin’ December 13, 2019

    Cute speech. I hope for 2020 Nicki pratice what she preaches and stop acting like a crazy bitter jealous woman.

  8. K.O. December 13, 2019

    This woman is a narcissistic pervert and she would do anything to make people believe she’s a good person but I’m not blind, I see.

    I know this site covers musicians of all races but I think I’m going to stop giving this dusty blog traffic. If the owner is truly black I don’t think he would continue to crank out stories of a known racist. Let’s stop supporting blogs, vlogs, podcasts, and businesses that promote racists. I’ll be spreading this comment across multiple articles. I like that this site posts multiple articles in a day but we can all find a different blog that does that. I like hip hop dx and I’m sure its other blogs that post just as much as TGJ. Let’s take our traffic elsewhere since TGJ supports known racists talking about Camila Cabello.

    Nicki looked amazing. She was definitely glowing. That’s how you can tell she is in love among other things. That award was deserved. I’m glad some spaces do give her the props she deserves without trying to wash her out of existence. That last sentence was for the Grammy Academy. Like she said the Barbz always got her. No matter what y’all say about her negatively, she still the Queen and it was shown because when a queen enters a room… standing ovation and when she finished her speech… standing ovation! I’m really sad knowing that Nicki will one day actually retire and we won’t get the chance to see her in concert, hear new music, hear Queen radio, and talk with her on social media.

  12. IHATE ALL YALL December 13, 2019

  13. Love and hip flop December 13, 2019

    Sheesh, Nicki is baddest in the game. She’s good…

  14. December 13, 2019

    Why because she doesn’t sound ignorant. you can actually hear every word she is saying clearly, you can tell from one word that she is intelligent and educated. same cr@p tyler swift was talking about in her speech of the crazy critique female artist gets and the males just get a pass.
