Nicki Minaj Is the Ultimate Lauryn Hill Fangirl—Watch the Rapper Meet Her Music Idol Here
Would you manage to keep your cool if introduced to your ultimate music icon? Nicki Minaj certainly lost control when she met, after years of adoration, beloved singer Lauryn Hill.
So what brought the two celebrated divas together? They each performed at the TIDAL X: 1015 concert in Brooklyn and joined forced backstage, where the 33-year-old rapper proudly told Hill just how much her music means to her. In a hilarious yet moving video, the rapper, dressed in an oversize white fur jacket, of course, bows down to Hill and tells her, “I’m in love with you. You’re a spirit….Everything about you.” The two proceed to hug it out and cherish the moment.
“Shaking, crying, a mess!!!! This lady is the reason,” Minaj wrote as the caption to the video. “Ms. Lauryn Hill told me to keep “spittin dat fire.” Is this real life!????” she added.
In addition to the video, the new BFFs happily posed for several unforgettable photos.
“I quoted her in my HS Yearbook,” the rapper wrote in excitement.
Following the stream of epic posts, Minaj continued to share pictures from her epic performance, during which she wore a black leather sheer ensemble with a Maison Margiela bodysuit, Lanvin jacket, and Prada shoes.
She also continued to share lyrics from one of Hill’s songs and once more expressed her adoration for the star.
