Nicki Minaj opens the NBA Allstar Game.
See story, photos and video after the jump…
The NBA decided to try something new this year to make the NBA All Star opener a bit more interesting. While they introduced the coaches and players for the East and West All Star teams, they took a break from commentating for a musical selection from Nicki Minaj.
The Harajuku Barbie took the stage over with colorful backdrops and a mob of chiseled eye candy to perform “Moment 4 Life” and “Turn Me On.” As the West All-Star team was introduced, it gave Nicki just enough time to switch from her purple and blond wig to a long lime green joint, before she re-emerged to perform her new single ‘Starships’ for the first time. During Starships, she stopped mid-performance to shake it fast (cues Big Sean’s AZZ track) and then the East All-Star team was introduced. (Lebron, Wade and Dwight came out crunk!!). Nicki closed out the opener with a quick performance of her biggest hit “Superbass,” sporting some pink hair this time and giving America all of the Nicki Minaj she could fit into her four-minute performance. Lil Wayne looked pretty happy about it..
