Nicki Minaj Shocked Fans By Offering To Pay College Tuitions

 

Nicki Minaj and the college tuition frenzy began innocently enough last night. It began as a Twitter contest to join the Pink Princess at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas –  and wound up with a spectacular flurry of social media charity.

On Saturday night, the high priestess of hip-hop, interacting with her acolytes via Twitter, told them to tweet her using the #NickiBBMAs for a chance to either join her in Las Vegas for the Billboard Music Awards on May 21, or accompany her in the studio during a recording session.

Then, when one of her fans asked for Minaj to pay their college tuition, things got interesting:

 

NICKI MINAJ ✔ @NICKIMINAJ

Minaj began requesting proof of 4.0 GPAs, agreeing to help pay for her fans’ tuition should they provide it.

 

NICKI MINAJ ✔ @NICKIMINAJ

Ok do u need help w/tuition or do u have a full scholarship? https://twitter.com/cjhereeee/status/861074836172529664 …

 

NICKI MINAJ ✔ @NICKIMINAJ

If u give me a 4.0 then I’ll keep my end of the bargain. https://twitter.com/princejauan/status/861075428928344069 …

 

NICKI MINAJ ✔ @NICKIMINAJ

Eventually, Minaj did away with the 4.0 GPA requirement, agreeing to pay for random fans’ outstanding college payments, from tuition to summer courses to books and other supplies.

It got to the point where her fans began asking Minaj to help them with their college loans, which Minaj quickly obliged:

Of course https://twitter.com/itsmarthabitch/status/861080291615571968 …

 

NICKI MINAJ ✔ @NICKIMINAJ

Yes I’ll pay it. Send ur info https://twitter.com/mexican_kenbarb/status/861081651580940292 …

 

The majority of the pleas were for less than $1K but she seemed to agree to pay $6K to one student if he could prove what it was for.

She joked that if she didn’t stop with the donations she wouldn’t have “any money left.”

In all, about 30 fans were chosen.  Way to go Ms. Nicki!-very BOSS of YOU!
