For days, I felt like Mommy Groovy being excited about the prospect of seeing rapper superstar Nicki Minaj in person. My teen and tweens like her music, but me? I have to admit “Superbass” is the only Nicki Minaj song I can patiently listen to.
” Boy, you got my heart beat running away.
Beating like a drum and its coming your way.
Can’t you hear that boom-ba-doom-boom-boom-ba-doom-boom-bass.
I was kinda late for this morning’s presscon at the Diamond Hotel and Nicki was easily recognizable from afar because of her pink hair and glittery cap. Not only that, I learned that we couldn’t take pictures so for the fans out there, here’s the official photo:
