PinkPrint rapper, Nicki Minaj, was not a happy camper over the weekend and the pint-sized sassy rapper angrily threw a security’s guard’s phone during a performance. Apparently, Minaj wanted everyone’s undivided attention during her set in Dubai, and when she looked up to find the security guard off task, she silently resolved the issue.
On Friday, March 25 in Dubai, Minaj was noticeably upset when she promptly stopped midway through her performance of her hit song, “Feeling Myself,” to angrily stalk across the stage with hand extended towards one of the security guards hired to manage the crowds. Minaj towered over the guard whose attention lay with his phone as she silently demanded that he hand it over. Once he did, Minaj threw the phone across the stage before carrying on with her performance as though nothing happened.
Since coming on the scene, Minaj has always been outspoken about holding firm to her standards despite society portraying strong women in a negative light.
Back in 2010 in her My Life documentary, Minaj spoke about women getting a reputation for being a b*tch if considered too assertive.
She shares, “When I am assertive, I’m a b*tch. When a man is assertive, he’s a boss. He bossed up. No negative connotation behind ‘bossed up.’ But lots of negative connotation behind being a b*tch. Donald Trump can say, ‘You’re fired.’ Let Martha Stewart run her company the same way and be the same way. [People will say] ‘F-ing old evil b*tch!’ But Donald Trump, he gets to hang out with young b*tches and have 50 different wives and just be cool. ‘Oh, Donald, we love you, Donald Trump!'” Minaj quips theatrically.
