{About Last Night} NICKI MINAJ Plays BEYONCE on SNL

Begin_Read

Friday night, Nicki Minaj sent selfies out to her fans with a caption stating: “”SNL REHEARSALS R GIVING ME LIFE. WATCH TMRW.” ”

Well, turns out, that “life” [she took on] was that of her Flawless (remix) cohort: Beyonce.

That’s right.

It’s like this: If (once upon a time) Beyonce can turn the Broadway/opera “Carmen” into a two-hour movie/hip-hopera and star as [a] hood “Carmen,”

…then Nicki Minaj can take Beyonce on as “Virgin Mary” in a hip-hop nativity right?

Courtesy of, and all praises due LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts, Nicki showed her acting prowess on the SNL stage starring as Saturday night’s musical guest, while too, doing a couple skits as Beyonce [being “Beyonce”—under the guise as the Virgin Mary]:

…and too [she played] Kim Kardashian:

The full (Beyonce/hip-hop nativity) skit also included Kate McKinnon doing a dead-a$$ Justin Bieber (under the deguise of Jesus)

 

In other Nicki news, in addition to soon be blowing out candles on December 8, Nicki Minaj’s December is pretty full.

Having just done a spread for Italian Vogue

…Nicki dropped some science and album art for her fans just the other day-stating that her greatly anticipated album Pink Print is due out December 15 and available for pre-order on iTunes and informing: “iTunes comes with one bonus song. Target comes with two bonus songs. Best Buy comes with a 2015 CALENDAR. And UK gets the addt’l Target songs.”
