Rapper Nicki Minaj’s reaction upon meeting her idol Lauren Hill was epic and proves that even high-profile celebrities have fangirl moments too.
An Opportunity came knocking when last night (October 15), rapper Nicki Minaj shared the stage with Neo-soul legend Lauren Hill as part of Jay-Z and Beyonce’s Tidal benefit show at the Barclays Center.After a great show
After putting up a great show and dragging Donald Trump and his wife, Nicki got to meet her woman crush who came to her dressing room to greet her. It was their first face-to-face meeting and Nicki couldn’t just find the words.
That Awkward Moment The Celeb Becomes The Fan
When it dawned on the rapper that she’s actually meeting Ms. Hill in person, she completely lost it. The moment couldn’t have been any more perfect as Nicki was captured literally worshiping her idol.
A short video clip capturing the epic moment, shows the Minaj falling on her knees and also bowing her head. Her emotions overwhelmed her as she scrambled to find the right words.
Nevertheless, a tearful and awestruck Minaj said passionately;
“No, no, no! I’m in love with you. Your spirit, your mind, everything about you.”
In addition, she flashed back to how she quoted Lauryn Hill in her high school yearbook. This proves how much of a lifelong fan she has been.
Taking to Instagram, Nicki posted two pictures with Lauryn Hill, captioning one of them;
“I quoted her in my HS YEARBOOK!!!!!” It turns out Nicki selected a powerful lyric from Lauryn Hill’s “Father Forgive Them” from The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill: “To survive is to stay alive in the face of opposition.”
And alongside the footage of the special moment, Minaj wrote;
“Excuse me while I have an outer body experience. Shaking, crying, a MESS!!!!” the “Super Bass”
This lady is the reason. Omg. The QUEEN. Goddess! The epitome! The bar!”
She added, “The *faints*. Ms Lauryn Hill told me to keep ‘spittin dat fire.’ Is this real life!????”
