Young Money's Nicki Minaj has revealed experiencing a slight scare during a laser eye operation she underwent this weekend.
Initially tweeting for her fans' positive thoughts and prayers earlier in the week, Minaj later informed her followers of the surgery's outcome.
"Dear Barbz, please pray I'm eligible for this laser eye thingy. TiredOfSquinting.Com *gets in truck* Love always, HB and Roman."
"The Lasik was a success. Thx 2 every1 who prayed :) I was rushed bak in 4 emergency surgery but now I'm good. A lil bruise but God is good." (Nicki Minaj's Twitter)
Aside from working on her Pink Friday debut album, Minaj is currently billed to appear at next month's Video Music Awards show in California.
He's back! Kanye West will make his triumphant return to the MTV VMAs on September 12, when the Chicago MC is set to perform for the show, which airs live from Los Angeles at 9 p.m. ET. West joins Drake and Best New Artist nominee Florence and the Machine as the first announced performers for the 2010 VMAs. Drake, who will make his VMA debut this year, is also nominated for two awards: Best Hip-Hop Video ("Forever") and Best Male Video ("Find Your Love"). His Young Money cohort Nicki Minaj, who is nominated for Best New Artist, is confirmed as one of the first wave of presenters. (MTV)
The rapper's emcee skills have not gone unnoticed as Kanye West recently called Minaj one of the top artists in hip-hop.
"This is gonna be such a big statement, and such a big thing to fill: The scariest artist right now is definitely Nicki Minaj. I think she has the most potential to be the number-two rapper of all time. Nobody's gonna be bigger than Eminem." (Hot 97)
Earlier this year, Minaj opened up about her "Barbie" movement and bipolar personality.
"Anybody that knows me knows that I have a very, very bipolar personality, so one minute I'm excited and the next minute I'm crying and the next minute I'm cussing and yelling and the next minute I'm singing Enya," Nicki told FADER writer Julianne Escobedo Shepherd. "I'm not kidding. And the point is, my rap style now reflects my true personality. Because I am so weird...I wish I could fricking remember the first boob that I signed. I don't know why I did it, but now I can't go anywhere and not do it. People come up to me wherever I am, girls, sexy girls, like, 'Can you sign my boob?' I mean, n*ggas in the club look at me like I'm a pimp. They like, Whaaat? Cause they be fly chicks. I don't know, but I do know it's a great thing." (The FADER)
