Nicki Minaj Turns Heads At NBA All-Star Party Over Demands

Nicki Minaj has climbed the ladder to success, making the rise from a cute Queens, NY around the way girl to one of the most sought after rappers to date. In any event of a potential demise one shouldn't expect the Barbie to take an escalator on her way down.

Minaj was the highlight of many NBA All-Star weekend celebrities this past weekend where rappers are infamously subjected as the main attraction to various events with party promoters looking to take advantage of the entertainers star power. Nicki brushed shoulders with fellow rapper Rick Ross at a few parties that excited fans but one specific event may have caught partygoers a tad bit off guard.

According to a report in the New York Post, the diva in Minaj came alive when she refused to take an escalator to a lower level party that she was hosting on Saturday night at LA Live in the downtown area of Los Angeles to walk the red carpet. Nicki along with a few other celebs were the highlight of the National Basketball Players Association party where dozens of players were on site to catch a glimpse of rap's hottest ticket but the crowd almost missed out on the opportunity to see the Barbie in action.

"There was a little drama ... She had time before she was due to go onstage, but she couldn't be persuaded" a source told the Post. "But the photographers and crews were desperate for her picture, so they all had to come upstairs and hustle backstage to get the shot ... Nicki was polite and posed up."

The next day Nicki Minaj as well Jay-Z, Bruno Mars, Snoop Dogg, Drake and many more were cheered on by fans when they were highlighted on the Jumbotron at the Staples Center during the 60th annual NBA All-Star game.
