Nicki Minaj’s busy promo run the last seven days in support of her new album The Pinkprint included appearances on ESPN’s SportsCenter, Ellen, The Tonight Show, Today, and Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live. Nicki’s busy schedule continued on Thursday with stops by The View, BET’s 106 & Park, and finally TNT’s Inside the NBA.

During her visit to TNT studios in Atlanta, Minaj along with Inside the NBA‘s Shaquille O’Neal, Kenny Smith, Ernie Johnson, and Grant Hill huddled up for one unforgettable rap cypher during the late-night show. After rejecting Shaq’s marriage proposal, the Queen Barbz took to the mic, spitting a flawless acapella to a round of applause from the show’s analysts. “I won. TNT was the best thing that ever happened to me,” Nicki posted on Instagram of the hilarious moment that was quickly the talk of Twitter. Watch below.

jon stewart jay z fox news

It’s no secret than Jon Stewart isn’t exactly Fox News’ biggest fan, and last night he happily tore into his least favorite station over their coverage of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s recent meeting with Jay Z. Instead of applauding the effort (yeah, right), Sean Hannity made extra sure that the people at home knew about Hov’s criminal history, repeatedly referring to him as a “former crack dealer” and not, y’know, as a hugely successful and influential musician, businessman and philanthropist.

However, before Stewart could really sink his teeth into Hannity, his fellow Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams came through in the clutch with some wonderful evidence of Fox News’ blatant and racist hypocrisy. Consider this another win for humanity.

Watch What Happens Live - Season 11

Nicki Minaj continued her promo run for The Pinkprint album with an appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday night. Sitting down with host Andy Cohen in an all-black skin-tight bustier, things got wild right from the start as Minaj had a slight nip slip on the show, which soon became a big topic on Twitter last night.

Cohen and Nicki touched on her past wardrobe malfunctions on GMA and at this year’s MTV VMAs, and played a game of “Plead the Fifth” where Cohen allowed the Young Money rapper one veto on the subjects of Solange and Jay Z’s elevator incident, the most well-endowned rappers in the industry, and if she’s ever slept with labelmate Drake.

Along with taking a “Shotski” with Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks, Nicki left Cohen with a gift basket and opened up more after the show on working with Beyoncé. “The best part about working with Beyoncé is I know that she likes what I do,” she said. “It’s pretty amazing that someone I looked up to for such a long time respects what I do as well.”
