On Sunday night, celebrities and stars from all parts of the entertainment industry stepped out to attend the E! People’s Choice Awards. From Kim Kardashian to Chrissy Teigen to Nicki Minaj to Victoria Beckham, celebrities dressed to the nines to attend the fun-filled evening.
Among the many winners at the awards show, rapper Nicki Minaj took home not one, but two different awards. She won one of the awards for album of the year, for her new album Queen, and another for female artist of the year.
While accepting her award presented by Jimmy Fallon for Female Artist of 2018, she thanked multiple people for the award and making the win possible. But, along with her thank you’s, she also took the opportunity during the speech to shoot her shot with a pretty famous actor–Michael B. Jordan. In the midst of her acceptance speech, Minaj first said thank you to Donatella Versace “for custom making this outfit for me” and then followed with “shout out to Michael B. Jordan because he’s gonna be taking it off me tonight.”
Obviously, everyone was shook–including Jimmy Fallon.
But, Twitter was most definitely going off the rails after hearing their girl Nicki Minaj have the balls to shoot her shot, not only in public–but on live TV. Let’s be honest, it takes guts to initiate that between two big stars. But, it takes even more guts to do so in a NSFW way on national television, in front of millions of people.
Nicki Minaj really just used her acceptance speech as an opportunity to shoot her shot with Michael B. Jordan and I respect that #PCAs— tia (@tiamagenheim) November 12, 2018

In all honesty, we don’t truly know if Nicki Minaj and Michael B. Jordan are a thing–but, we truly do respect a woman who shamelessly goes after what she wants–a true queen.
