The ladies of Hip Hop took over daytime television this morning. Nicki Minaj sat down with Kelly Ripa and Taye Diggs (who was filling in for Michael Strahan) on “LIVE with Kelly & Michael” and “LAHH” creator Mona Scott Young was a co-host on “The View.” See the hip hop divas on daytime TV inside…
With the release of her new single“Pills N Potions,” Nicki Minaj stopped by the “LIVE! with Kelly and Michael” show to premiere a snippet for the visuals of the new track. Last week, Nicki hit up “Good Morning America” to reveal a sneak peek at the visuals and announced she would be premiering the full video after her appearance on “LIVE with Kelly and Michael”
Donning a Dolce & Gabbana crop top, matching pencil skirt and Versace sandals, the “Pills N Potions” rapper sat down with Kelly Ripa and Taye Diggs (who was filling in for Michael Strahan) to dish on the concept of her new track, the love she receives from her Barbz/fans, her love for West Indian food and she gave out sample smells of her signature fragrance, spraying the audience with Minajesty.
When asked about the concept behind her new lush ballad, Nicki said,
“And what that felt like to me was forgiveness. Just understanding that everybody gets mad but when you love somebody I feel like you’ll always love them. I don’t feel like there’s ever been a person that I loved that I no longer love. I just may not be able to live with you or have you in my life and that’s really what the song is about. The video is dropping today on VEVO. I’m thinking about 8pm eastern standard time."
Hmm…wonder if this song was written for her “boo” SB?
Stay tuned for Nicki’s “Pills N Potions” premiere later today.
And on another daytime talkshow….
“Love & Hip Hop” creator Mona Scott Young was in the hot seat this morning as she co-hosted “The View” with Whoopi Goldberg, Sherry Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy.
Sherry went right in to grill the reality TV show guru about the violence that is shown on the reality shows she creates. When asked about the violence between the women on “LAHH” Mona responded that reality TV is a guilty pleasure for many and the drama is what we like to see so that’s what is shown. She said the women on the show are navigating a specific world, which has led them to be who they are and how they react to certain situations and that’s what we see on television.
Mona is currently in the midst of new controversy after a pilot video for a new reality show “Sorority Sisters” hit the net. Black greeks are up-in-arms over the show and have started a petition to keep the show from seeing the light of day. Peep the petition here.
