Fresh off her “Pink Friday” European tour, Nicki Minaj made a visit to the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Friday night. The two discuss her first headlining touring experience, her Trinidadian roots, and her first job experience working at Red Lobster. Nicki explained why Jada Pinkett-Smith was her idol growing up, and her role in the Ice Age: Continental Drift movie that opened in theatres this weekend.

Minaj closed her appearance by performing her new single, “Pound the Alarm.” Expect the video to arrive very soon.
