The snub is real.
While Nicki Minaj has been teasing some of her "best work yet," the "No Frauds" songstress has been facing some backlash over her decision to skip the BET Awards. In an Instagram post, Nicki states that the NBA Awards Ceremony is the only award show she plans on attending. Emphasis on "only," like, all-caps-style emphasis.
The decision is an interesting one for Minaj, who is nominated for best female hip-hop artist alongside Cardi B, Missy Elliot, Young M.A, and arch rival Remy Ma. Many have speculated her recent beef with Remy is the catalyst behind the snub, and haters have flocked crow-like around her social media to call her out.
The barbz, however, have stood unbending behind their queen. What do ya'll think? Is Minaj shook over the competition, or is she simply too big for the BET Awards? The awards air on June 25th, so stay tuned for a Minaj-free ceremony.
