As we previously reported, Nicki Minaj hosted the BET "Rip The Runway" ceremony last night, before it went down Nicki talked about how she became the host. "I came to host the show by very strange and pacular pattern… I saw people writing that I was hosting the show and I thought it was a rumor and then I got a phone call that they were trying to get me to perform."
Nicki says they added "that too" when it came to also hosting to actual show, but she pulled it off on short notice. Minaj says she becomes the "crazy lunatic" that she "truly is" during her music videos while she teamed up with Sean Garrett for her first single calling it "crazy."
When it comes to being compared to female rappers, Nicki says it is just a "given" so it doesn't bother her but she feels shes coming into her own, which is what she wants to do "brand Nicki Minaj as a different item in that female rapper box, then come out of that female rapper box."
