Ok, before you read this article, we have to agree on one thing: this is a no Nicki Minaj hate zone. That means that you have to read it with an open mind and hopefully appreciate the  majesty that is Nicki Minaj’s hair, music, makeup... everything, really.

Minaj performed three songs in all: 'Bed Of Lies' with Skylar Grey and a medley of 'Only' and 'All Things Go'. Through the magic of the internet, you can now watch all of those online. Somewhere. Not here because, you know. Copyright is a thing. NME has clips of the whole thing, though. Don’t say we never did anything for you.

Um... excuse you?

So yeah, it was pretty cool. Besides being pretty cool, though, it was also excellent promotion for Nicki’s upcoming release, The Pinkprint. The album is out on December 15 and it’ll be Nicki’s second studio release after 2010’s Pink Friday and 2012's Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded. I think I’m sensing a pattern here.

 Minaj recently revealed that the LP will feature guest spots from Beyoncé, Drake, Lil Wayne, Ariana Grande, Chris Brown, Meek Mill, Jeremih and others. So basically, if you’re looking for a last minute gift for a hip hop loving friend... get them a snapback, who even buys music anymore? But seriously, is anyone else way too excited about this album?
