Full story below…
The 5x VMAs winner is set to join an elite list of names to be bestowed with the honor – such as Janet Jackson, Beyonce, Madonna, and Missy Elliott.
Historically, the award is presented to acts who’ve made a game-changing impact with the marriage of their music and visual output.
It’s expected that Minaj will take to the stage in celebration of the salute when the VMAs air live from the Prudential Center on Sunday, August 28 at 8PM ET/PT.

What do you think of Nicki Minaj being the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard pick? Let us know…
So undeserving 😑
Her videos or bland & don’t push the culture in anyway. It’s tons of artist who are more deserving. Christina, Destiny Child, usher, even Ciara
Couldn’t agree more. Nicki is know for looking like a beached whale covered in plastic bags or simply shaking her silicone
So many more deserving artists. Usher, TLC, Busta, Christina, Mariah…..
KILL YOURSELF F A G !!! NICKIS THE ONLY ARTIST TO ACTUALLY DELIVER IN MUSIC VIDEOS! ANACONDA! MOMENT 4 LIFE! BEEZ IN DA TRAP! STARSHIPS!
Thank you Lil Kim for being the blueprint for nicki. MTV seems like they’re just passing the award to anyone. Next year, demi lovato, Olivia Rodigo or lizzo fat ass
KIM JUNG OONS A DAMN OVERRATED FLOP!!! NO DIAMOND PLAQ! ONLY ONE NUMBER ONE? PFFFT NICKI CREATED THE FUN POP VERSATILITY OF RAP! NOW STFU
I can’t think of one creative unique game changing video of hers but get that promo for the album. It’s gonna need it
Nicki made the whole world fix a flat tho, keep it REAL lmaoooooo 🤣💯👀☕️
MOMENT FOR LIFE AMD CHUN LI SAY KILL YOURSELF F A G !!!
How is mtv still ignoring Mariah but esp Christina? Beautiful is still one of the most important videos of the 2000s.
GIRL STFU SHES A FLOP! AND NOT! ON NICKIS LEVEL
This honor should go to Meg Tha Stallion. Granny Minaj visuals are cheap, low budget and uncreative. I’m counting on her performance to suck too. Watch this be the lowest rated VMA’s ever.
Meg the station should get this award with 1 album out are you delusional her new song Is a total
Flop go stream it
A Cardi stan talking about flops lmaoooooooooo 🤣
BWAHAHHAHHAHAH MEG NEEDS TO FULLY COMMIT AND BE THE TRANNI HE IS! MANLY FLOP! LMAO SWEETEST FLOP PLAN FLOP FLOPILIUOS LMAOOOOOO SHELL NEVEEEER BE NICKI WITH HER ONE TRICK PONY AND LARGE PEEN! LMAO SIT!
Usher is a far better candidate than Nicki Minaj……
They’ve been disrespecting Usher for years, he should’ve been one of the first to receive the award.
SOMEBODY USHER THIS NI**A INTO A CLINIC! USHER HAS A CLINIC VISIT BEFORE A VANGUARD AWARD VISIT 🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄
Meanwhile Nicki will never reach Usher number ones, records and album sales. One trick pony who’s already had multiple flops in her first prime decade lol STFU
MEANWHILE USHER TO THE CLINIC HAS NO DIAMOND PLAQ! BWAHAHAHAHA JUST FLOPPING N BURNING LMAOOOO
Usher has a DIAMOND ALBUM that has sold over 20 million worldwide which is more pure sales than Nicki entire album catalogue DUMB MF.Usher has more number one songs on every chart, Billboard awards, AMA’s and Grammy’s. Lol now STFU
Good for her, but Lil Kim deserves a thank you at LEAST lol 🤳🏽 This isn’t shade tho, cause Nicki’s DNA is definitely in the new crop of rap gworls! 💯 I see her DNA in some of these Pop gworls too, keep it real ☕️ Congrats!
Onika is not woman enough to publicly thank Kim for paving the way and providing the blueprint. She is too small a woman to pay homage, which is why she can buy all of the awards but will never be legendary in her own right. The only people who will ever respect her are her delusional stans, but not anybody else.
OH STFU SHES HYPED UP KIM JUN OON FOR YEARS! YALL NOT TIERED OF THIS LIE? AND LIL FLOP WAS NEVER!!! THE BLUEPRINT! EVEN FOXY BROWN SOLD MORE THAN HER.
What a joke
You certainly are!
CRY F A G BWAHAHAHAHAHA 🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄
Britney spears is definitely more deserving of it
Next is Gorge Michael
Then Christina Aguilera
And then Nicki can have it but again not really deserving of it.
Also M.I.A have one of the best videos out there, even though she is annoying as f.uc.k
Britney has already received it
Oh my goodness i forget about
Lady gaga she should have gotten it long time ago!!!!
And Erykah Badu!!!!
And Eminem if he didn’t get it already
And Linkin park!!!! Helooo
Thank gawd, George Michael already has one! 💯
Britney Spears already has one! MTV didn’t forget who kept their lights on since 1998 lol 😂
Aaliyah is dead. Isn’t this for living artists?
No it’s about the work and impact they have made with music videos.
STFU F AG BRIT IS A CRCK HEAD! SHELL NEVER BE A LEGEND
Wait! Has Lil Kim been honored at the VMA’s yet? If not, I don’t think this is right.
Lil Kim definitely deserves it! She is GODMUVA to ALL these heffas 😂
Lil Kim is not MTV, she is BET. She hasn’t had a SINGLE song on the charts in over 10 year. The MTV viewers are age 14–25. It would not make sense
The majority age demographic is 18 to 49 as of 2022. It doesn’t end at 25 lol.
NOPE 😂 NICKI FIRST CHILE 🎀
NO! LMAOOOOOO OVERRATED CHINESE MAN LOOKING FLOP AINT ON NICKI THR QUEEN OF RAP LEVEL TO BE WINNING SOMETHING LIKE THIS.
No #1’s, no Grammy, no classic albums or singles but she go a Vanguard though! Haters gonna say it was purchased!
NICKI DECLINED THE GRAMMYS AND SHE BAGGED TWO NUMBER ONES IN A WEEK SPAN KEEP CRYING F***** 😂🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄BWAHAHHAHHAHAHHAH
When will Cardi? She can’t even get that second album out or hit the top 10! lmaoooooooooo 🤣
Her visuals and performances are better than Nicki’s though
y’all are so weird. it was 1 single that hit #13 oooh what a flop. A top 20 hit must be terrible. And why would she be in the running for a Vanguard award after 1 album? I can’t wait for school to start back. You all need more things to fill up your day with.
Exactly my point, DUH! If she can’t even make it to album number 2, she’ll never be around long enough to get an award like this. Damn y’all really need everything explained to you in multiple ways for it to make sense.
NEVER! BOTCHED NON RAPPING/WRITING RATS DONT WIN VANGAURD AWARDS 😌
Nicki’s videos suck
So do you
YOUR BURNT ASHY AND LOOK LIKE A M O N KEY OOH AHH AAH BTCH! WATCH YOUR DIRTY STIFF WIG ON THE QUEEN! 🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄
I can’t believe Lady GaGa hasn’t received it yet…
They photoshopped the f*** outta that pic. Nicki doesn’t look like that and she’s fat. 💀
Just like Monica 💀
Monica ain’t never been fat a day in her life. Face flawless, body natural. Speaking of which have to scrapped up enough pennies to pay for your transition surgery tranniiieeee💋
She’s a skinny crack h*** with long man feet and covered in ghetto tattoos 💀
LMAO MONIGGA STILL A GRANNY FLOP WE ALL LEFT BACK IN 98? BWAHAHAHAH YUP! NO HITS! NO DIAMOND PLAQ! JUST A PAY OHONE H O! 😂😂🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄
Haters gonna hate. Nicki IS the Queen and will always be the legend who revived Female Rap
Keep shining Nicki
BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA ALL YOU FÂGS BEEN TRYING TO THROW SHADE THESE LAST FEW NICKI POSTS! AND FOR WHAT EXACTLY? THE QUEENS SET TO ACCEPT THE MICHAEL JACKSON VANGAURD AWARD! HATERS LOSE AGAIN! HABWAHAHAHAHAHA 🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄🦄
Even Nicki will go to sleep knowing that she bought this award and that she is totally undeserving of it. Awards only matter when they are earned. It doesn’t matter how many awards you buy when the only people who think you deserve it are your delusional fans. Nicki is a fraud. Imagine giving this award to the iconic Missy Elliott for her truly remarkable and avant garde music videos, then giving it to Nicki the next time around who doesn’t even have a single video that can be pointed to as being outstanding.
KINDLY STFU! YOU F A G TARDS! ALWAYS SAYING SOMEONE BOUGHT SOMETHING! NICKIS A LEGENDS AND THE WUEEN OF VIDEOS/RAP! STFU AND BOW
WTF ?! Mariah is a billion times more deserving. So is Christina. Usher. And the list goes on.

Jay-Z a very Smart man to marry his customer/ she selling her ass literally
Beyoncé has never smoked crack. She’s not Crackney.
