“All that ass.” That was Lil Wayne’s astute observation of Nicki Minaj’s assets after sitting in a chair onstage as she gyrated and worked her ample caboose while lapdancing on the YMCMB CEO during her sexy performance of “High School” on the 2013 Billboard Music Awards Sunday (May 19) night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
After starting off the live broadcast with a win for top rap artist, the Queen of the Barbz, dressed in ripped skin-tight black tights, gold spiked jacket and Chanel baseball cap, returned near the end of the telecast for a duet performance of the Weezy-assisted third single from her sophomore LP, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded – The Re-Up.
Animated and writhing like a nymph with her dancers, the Pink Friday femcee served up her verse with sultry authority before Tunechi entered stage right dressed in a white muscle shirt and pants with one leg pulled up to offer up his guest lyrics. For the encore, Minaj ushered a very nervous Wayne into his own private throne, straddled him and worked her voluptuous derrière for her boss better than the strippers at Miami’s King of Diamonds.
Although Wayne said he was “the luckiest guy in the world,” the whole ordeal had to be nerve-racking for the Carter IV mogul, who thinks of the “American Idol” judge more as a sister than an exotic temptress.
“He refused to touch me, he’s so respectful, he refused to touch me, and then I was like, ‘Wayne,’ I was like, ‘You could do this.’ But he was acting scared, like, ‘Yo, Nick, this is my dream. I’m gonna be a man after this video.’ He was just being crazy,” Minaj told MTV News last month. “But if I didn’t tell him ‘Yes, you can do this’ or ‘touch this,’ he refused to do it, like he’s a southern gentlemen, which people don’t realize.”
