The drama the ladies of the “The Hills” have grappled with for six seasons has captivated millions of fans, including one hip-hop diva in particular: Nicki Minaj. Minaj recently revealed via Twitter that not only does she watch the show — which signs off on Tuesday (July 13) — but she has strong opinions about the goings-on of the cast.
Apparently, the MC has been keeping up with the antics of Audrina’s (and Kristin’s) on-and-off boy toy, Justin “Bobby” Brescia. When a fan pressed Minaj on Twitter about whether she watches “The Hills,” the star tweeted, “Yes! I was SO mad wen Justin bobby cut his hair!”
Her taste in TV isn’t the only thing the star has revealed on the social-networking website. Last week, the Young Money MC announced the release date of her hotly anticipated debut album on Twitter. “Yes. It’s time. November 23rd,” the star tweeted Thursday.
When MTV News caught up with the “Your Love” rapper on the set of the video for her #1 track , Minaj called the material she was working on with producer Swizz Beatz “magical” and was generally amped about the album.
“When people hear the album, they’re going to get to know Onika [her birth name is Onika Maraj]. And no one knows Onika,” Minaj said. “I really didn’t think I would be this excited about the songs that I’m coming up with. I’m really, really proud.”
Swizzy was also excited about his work with Minaj. “We have a lot of small conversations that end up [turning] into big musical moments,” the producer told MTV News. “When you hear Nicki on my track, you’re gonna see that ‘Wow, she just went from here to there.’ I’m happy to be a part of that.”
