Nicki Minaj Picks Channing Tatum For MTV Movie Awards’ ‘Best Shirtless Performance’

There will be stiff competition in the “Best Shirtless Performance” category at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night (April 14) but Nicki Minaj has no doubt about who should win.

When asked to choose between the top contenders, which also includes Christian Bale in “The Dark Knight Rises” and Daniel Craig in “Skyfall,” the YMCMB rapper immediately jumped to Channing Tatum who starred in “Magic Mike” last year. “Channing Tatum is sexy as hell,” she said. “Taylor Lautner might [have] the best abs but Channing over all is something sexy honey.”

And there it is.
