SNL: Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd perform together

Posted on

NBC

Nicki Minaj capped off a week dominating the entertainment news cycle with a surprise appearance during The Weeknd’s performance on Saturday Night Live.

Minaj rapped a new verse on The Weeknd’s hit “The Hills,” part of a new remix of the song that’s now available. (Another remix featuring Eminem was also released on Saturday.)

“You the president and I’m Biden, just slide in cause you safe, n—-, third base,” Minaj raps on the verse.

“Lol I had so much fun performing on SNL. They’re always a pleasure to be around,” Minaj wrote on Instagram after her appearance.

 

Last week, the New York Times Magazine posted an interview with Minaj where the rap star addressed the Miley Cyrus VMAs fallout and took the reporter to task for asking if she “thrives on drama.”

“That’s disrespectful,” Minaj said. “Why would a grown-ass woman thrive off drama?” She later ended the interview.
