Last night, the 2015 MTV Europe Music Awards took place at the Mediolanum Forum in Milan, Italy. Both Young Money artists Nicki Minaj and Drake received nominations at the awards show, but they couldn’t be in attendance.
Unfortunately, Drizzy didn’t win any of his 2 nominations, but Minaj did win 1 award out of her 5 nominations in the “Best Hip-Hop” category where she beat out Drake, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, and Wiz Khalifa.

Nicki Minaj won the “Best Hip-Hop Video” award last night at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards in Los Angeles, California for her “Anaconda” music video.
The Barbie was in attendance at L.A. Live’s Microsoft Theater to pick up her award in person and give a speech, as well as call Miley Cyrus a “bitch” on stage after her recent comments.
Unfortunately, Nicki didn’t win any of the other 3 “Moonmans” she was nominated for at the awards show. Hit the jump to check out a clip of Minaj accepting her “Best Hip-Hop Video” award after the jump below!
This Sunday on August 30th, Nicki Minaj will be performing live at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, which are taking place live from L.A. Live’s Microsoft Theater in California from 9PM EST.
After getting a hint 2 weeks ago, MTV have now confirmed the news that the Barbie will be opening up this year’s VMAs show. It’s also rumored that one of the songs Nicki will be performing is her new single “Trini Dem Girls“.
As well as opening up the awards show, Minaj is also up for 4 nominations (“Best Female Video, “Best Hip-Hop Video”, “Best Collaboration”, and “Best Song Of The Summer”), so hopefully she will be leaving with a few “Moonman” awards!
Last month, we got news that Nicki Minaj was nominated 3 times at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards (see what awards they are here), and now she has received another nomination in a new category that MTV have just added. The new category is called “Best Song Of The Summer” and David Guetta‘s “Hey Mama” single picked up a nomination in it, which of course features the Young Money Barbie.
The winner of “Best Song Of The Summer” will be decided on votes from social media, so to vote for Nicki you can tweet or post on Instagram using the hashtag “#HeyMamaVMA”. That will count as 1 vote and the winner will be revealed during the pre-show of this year’s VMAs that is taking place from L.A. Live’s Microsoft Theater in California on Sunday, August 30th from 8PM EST!
Nicki Minaj is carrying on promoting her latest studio album, The Pinkprint, by releasing a brand new single from the project that will most likely have a music video shot for it.
According to HHNM, Nicki will be following up to her “The Night Is Still Young” single by making the catchy “Trini Dem Girls” song featuring LunchMoney Lewis her new single.
Later this month, the Young Money Barbie will also be performing “Trini Dem Girls” live at the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards on August 30th!
