If Nicki Minaj does become an American Idol judge, producers can now rest assured that she'll handle any surprises during a live show.

The singer proved as much on stage in Miami this week, as a fan rushed up to Minaj during a concert and attempted to give her a hug. But the artist remained calm, security swooped in and put a SERIOUS beatdown on the idiot and the show went on.

"Florida u were amazing tonight!!!! Thank u soooo much for the love!!!!! Mmmuuuuaaahhhh!!!!!" Nicki Tweeted after the show.

Earlier this year, Demi Lovato took cover after a similar incident in Paraguay.

  • Miley Cyrus, No Pants

  • Nicki Minaj in Vogue
  • Picture of Fergie

Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Fergie, Katy Perry and Will.I.Am.

Nicki Minaj recently commented on the feud between Chris Brown and Drake, her Young Money label-mate, by claiming that she "doesn't approve" of the beef.

The now-infamous Chris Brown-Drake fight that broke out last month at an NYC club left many injured and got the establishment shut down in the aftermath.

All over Rihanna too, allegedly. Speaking to the BBC, Nicki weighed in:

  • Chris Brown Fashion
  • Nicki Minaj Fashion
  • Drake, Glasses

"I don't approve of talented people doing things that aren't conducive to an amazing career. I spoke to Drake, and I told him from the bottom of my heart how I felt."

"I'm like, 'Baby, you are a superstar, and I need you to realize that."

Speaking to Tim Westwood on BBC Radio 1 Xtra, Minaj revealed that, although she thought Drake was innocent, he still needed to be careful of his reputation."

"He did nothing wrong, of course. Rumors are rumous, and that there's what it is. Sometimes, you just need to go to bed. Go to the hotel and have an early nap."

"At the end of the day, there's nothing wrong with that."

Words to live by, Drizzy. Words to live by.

Whose side are you on in the feud?

Yvette Wilson passed away from cancer a few days ago, and while the actress' death has left Nicki Minaj in tears, it's also left her irate. At the American health care system.

In a series of Tweets posted not long after Wilson died, Minaj went off on current policy and even addressed President Barack Obama at one point.

“What’s sad is that when Yvette was bringing home the bacon, the gov’t was probably taking millions.On her deathbed though, #Nowheretobefound," Nicki wrote. "That should be a God given right! Even with Obama Care, too much involved. Just give FREE health care to all. @barackobama What can we do?

"@BarackObama I wouldn’t mind the millions they took if it was going to healthcare. Why should a poor person struggle to pay for MEDS sir?"

The President, of course, is too busy helping Amanda Bynes avoid a DUI charge, but Member Questo of The Roots replied to Minaj's Tweets with one of his own:

“@NICKIMINAJ i personally know that the white house administration would LOVE for you to use ur tweet power to raise health care awareness."

Are you in favor of universal health care, readers?

Nicki Minaj has some NSFW words for 97.1 FM.

The rapper appeared opposite Funk Master Flex on that New York radio station this morning and addressed the beef she has with another station DJ, Peter Rosenberg, that led to her canceling her appearance at the Hot 97 Summer Jam on Sunday.

That last-minute decision stemmed from Rosenberg's remarks to open the concert two days ago, when he introduced the first act by saying: "I know there are some chicks in here waiting to sing along with Starships later. I'm not talking to y'all now. F--k that bulls--t."

Encouraged by Lil Wayne, who was on hand to hear Rosenberg slam his friend, Minaj pulled out of her appearance and says in the interview it was a matter of "respect." She also says many other naughty words. Take a listen:

Nicki Minaj’s music video for her latest hit single “Right By My Side” premiered last night, featuring Chris Brown on vocals and Nas in the romance department.

The Benny Boom-directed video features Nicki as a 'round-the-way kinda girl who finds love with a regular guy (Nas). Fairy tale romance at its finest, people.

Chris woos the outrageous rapper-singer during his guest appearance, and they even dance suggestively together, but it looks like he loses out to bad boy Nas.

Nas manages to win her over by gifting her an expensive sports car, though her expression at the end of the song makes you wonder if she made a mistake:

“Right By My Side” is Nicki's third single from Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, following “Starships” and "Stupid Hoe." What do you think of the music video?

Having made it very clear just what Starships are meant to do, Nicki Minaj has come out with her new Pepsi commercial.

In the ad, the eccentric artist sings a remixed version of the track "Moment 4 Life," while various individuals suddenly find themselves appropriately frozen in time. What do they do with these moments? They screw up a beach volleyball game, they steal clothing from a fashion show and they sneak into a Minaj concert.

And they drink Pepsi, of course. Are you inspired by the spot? View an extended cut of it now:
