Last night as promised, Nicki Minaj put on a FREE concert at Roseland Ballroom in NYC for her diehard barbz. Nearly 3,000 barbz showed up, packed out the venue, and sung every song word-for-work with Nicki.
About a month ago, Nicki promised to make up not performing at Summer Jam to her fans, and after watching the performance, she definitely did. Just two short days after ending her highly successful,Â ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded’ tour and ordered to take two weeks of vocal rest by her doctor,Â Nicki and her closest celeb Â friends shut Roseland Ballroom down. Special guests included Camron, Foxy Brown, Drake, Mack Maine, and Lil’ Wayne.Â
Before bringing Foxy to the Stage, Nicki said she wanted to introduce “the female rapper who influenced me the most.” Foxy was in tears after receiving so much love from Nicki’s fans. She was in tears and didÂ not want to leave the stage. Nicki said Foxy was her greatest rap inspiration and thanked herÂ for all that she does and for influencing her career. Foxy made it loud and clear that she is comingÂ back and her sister Nicki Minaj is making sure of it!
Drake came out and performed ‘Up all Night’ and ‘Make Me Proud’ with Nicki and stayed until Weezy and Mack Maine came out.
Of course, Nicki brought out Lil’ Wayne to shut the she down YMCMB style. He performed, ‘The Motto’ and ‘No Excuses’

Beyonce recently shot the video for “I was Here” on the floor of the U. N. General Assembly as reported by NYdailyNews. She did this performance in order to promote World Humanitarian Day. The U.N. General Assembly created World Humanitarian Day in 2008 to commemorate the Aug. 19, 2003, killing of 22 people in an attack on the U.N. offices in Baghdad.
Beginning Aug. 19, the video of the song can be seen on the star’s official web site, as well as at www.whd-iwashere.org. The latter site aims to provide a place for people to write about individual acts of good they’ve performed, as well as encourage others to come up with their own.

Love and Hip-Hop Atlanta reality stars Mimi and Stevie J. were out a few days ago and apparently while walking to the vehicle Stevie J looks into the camera and makes a joke about Joseline. Not a smart move by Stevie J (not that heâ€™s known for them), considering Mimi is walking directly beside him. READ MORE
