Last night’s 2012 All-Star Game punctuated the three-day basketball weekend. While much of the entertainment world had eyes glued to the 2012 Oscars, the one and only Nicki Minaj busted her butt performing to introduce a star-studded lineup of players for the highly anticipated game. Nicki laid it all on the stage for her first performance, clad in a skintight white body suit with a hood and netted silver add-ons bustled around her midsection and strapped to her arms and knees.
The MC spat a medley of “Moment 4 Life” and “Turn Me On” in a short purple and gray wig, roomy hood, and BONKERS four-knuckle ring emblazoned with “QUEEN” in big block letters just before the West team was introduced. Nicki could have left it at that rousing performance, but instead, she performed another set to usher in the East Coast team. #dedication Though there wasn’t enough time for a complete wardrobe about-face, Nicki still managed to switch up her look for the rival team with a quick wig change (this time long, straight lime green locks) for her performances of “Starships” and “Super Bass.”
