Superstar Nicki Minaj started Saturday night (May 7) reviewing submissions to a contest for a lucky fan to join her for the Billboard Music Awards in Vegas by the end of the night Minaj was agreeing to pay college-related bills for fans.
On Twitter Saturday, Nicki Minaj began the night mentioning she was reviewing entries for a contest in which fans made lip-sync videos to her song “Regret in Your Tears” with the prize joining Minaj at the upcoming Billboard Music Awards or chilling with her in the studio.
Then a fan tweeted Minja asking if she would pay his tuition. “Show me straight A’s that I can verify w/ur school and I’ll pay it. Who wants to join THAT contest?!?! Dead serious. Shld I set it up?” Nicki responded.
Within a few minutes, Minaj started taking requests to pay for tuition and other college expenses with the requirement that you show proof of a 4.0 GPA. After a few requests, the rap songstress did away the 4.0 requirement agreeing to pay fans outstanding college payments, from summer courses to remaining balances on student loan debt.
By the time Nicki Minja ended the contest a few hours later she agreed to pay tens of thousands to her extremely thankful fans and she’s not done yet saying that once the payments are sent out she’ll resume the Twitter contest “in a month or 2”
