Nicki Minaj Ditches Her Underwear, Iggy Azalea Bootyful Outfit, T.I. Cops A Bachelor Pad?

Moving Monday. We’re moving all over the place today, so why not get things started with Nicki Minaj not rocking with underwear? Speaking of curvy women, is Iggy Azalea going to give Nicki a run for her money with booty comparisons? Iggy’s boss T.I. is keeping busy these days, especially after getting his hands on a huge mansion to ball in? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think.

[Editor's Note: The views expressed in this column do not necessarily reflect those of SOHH]

1. You Had To See It

Did anyone else get to see Nicki Minaj’s curves from last night’s Movie Awards? MTV almost had to bust out their censors when you saw all that Nicki was packing. It’s funny how even when she’s in a legit dress it feels NSFW. Entertainmentwise has the pics:

Nicki Minaj is not one for the demure look, but last night she nailed it at the MTV Movie Awards as she squeezed her curves into a tight black dress for the ceremony but unashamedly left her underwear at home. The Starships hitmaker often shares near-naked selfies with her fans on Instagram, but last night the star covered up and let her Alexander McQueen dress do the talking. Nicki, 31, who went bra-free for the occasion ditched the bright colours and dramatic make-up for a more toned down look with her hair pulled to one side. When asked by a fan if she was going to wear underwear at the MTV Movie Awards, she replied on Twitter: “Of course not”. (Entertainmentwise)

Are the days of Nicki busting out tons of skin and getting all explicit over? Is she finally getting her grown woman on? Is this a new look we should expect from Nicki? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Round Of Applause

Much like Nicki Minaj, Iggy Azalea gave people a reason to watch the MTV Movie Awards in light of her own curves. She might not have a lot going on above the waist other than a gorgeous smile but what’s below the waist is enough to have all of the cameras snapping. Daily Mail UK is on it:

The blonde beauty’s hourglass figure was on full display beneath the mid-length dress, which featured sheer panels and embellishment across the chest.

Iggy, real name Amethyst Amelia Kelly, kept her blonde locks pulled back in a sleek ponytail not to detract from the designer creation.

The quirky singer, who grew up in regional Australia before to the US at 16 to pursue her dreams of becoming a successful rapper, is about to release her new album The New Classic. (Daily Mail UK)

Are you digging this look? Did Iggy have the edge over Nicki? What’s the verdict? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. The King’s Home

Is T.I. preparing for the bachelor life? Probably not but he’s going all out as if he is a single man these days after buying a decked-out home. TMZ has the info:

When ballers like T.I. want to cut down their commute they do NOT carpool — they just spend more cash on a new home … closer to work. Genius.

Atlanta sources tell TMZ … Tip just leased a 4 BR, European estate in the exclusive Buckhead neighborhood — even though he and his wife Tiny already have a house in A-Town.

We’re told … the rapper’s real estate motivation is simple. The place is just two minutes from his studio — erasing his usual 40 minute drive home after a night of recording.

But check out the pics — with a massive pool, outdoor kitchen, and entertainment area — we doubt there will be a lot of sleep going down at this crash pad. (TMZ)

Can you hate on T.I. for such a big purchase? Is T.I. still the king of the South? Considering how he’s living, with that VH1 money too, it looks like he’s at least the king of the real estate in Atlanta. #SOHHWhatchaThink?

That about wraps it up for today. This is SOHH On The Spot giving you the morning scoop from your favorite gossip sites.

Finally Friday. What else can you be happy for today than the fact it’s a T.G.I.F., so let’s start things off with Beyoncé showing off her true look without makeup? We might want to take a look at Lil Wayne‘s face after he pulled an all-nighter with one of the biggest pop stars out right now. He might not do pop, but T.I. might have something popping off in the near future with a new rap show? All this coming up in SOHH Whatcha Think?

1. Wax On, Wax Off

Is Beyoncé the hottest female singer alive? She might be after taking a close look at how she is without makeup on. The R&B diva treated us all to a relaxed photo by the sea and she looks drop dead gorgeous. RumorFix has the shot:

Beyonce is the latest star to go without makeup!

The singer graced us with her beautiful fresh face in new images she posted to her Instagram account on Wednesday.

Bey and Jay are currently in the Dominican Republic taking in some much needed R&R after the diva’s 132 shows across the globe for her Mrs. Carter World Tour, which she wrapped up this month in Lisbon.

Sounds like Bey is very deserving of a relaxing makeup free day! (RumorFix)

Does this photo do Bey justice? If anything, does it make women question how much makeup they use? Does it make men wonder if they should buy their ladies makeup or see them all natural? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

2. Up All Night

Did Lil Wayne lay down some classics this week? We will have to wait to find out but it sounds like he may have clocked in some studio time with controversial pop star Justin Bieber? Just Jared has the scoop:

Justin Bieber rocks a fitted cap as he exits the Hit Factory on Friday morning (April 11) in Miami, Fla.

The 20-year-old entertainer was spotted at 6am having pulled an all nighter at the recording studio with Lil Wayne, Birdman, and Soulja Boy.

The day before, Justin showed off his tattooed torso while hanging out on a yacht shirtless.

That same evening, Justin received a visit from his rumored on again girlfriend Selena Gomez as he kept working hard on some new music at the Hit Factory. (Just Jared)

There was once a time when Lil Wayne said he could not work with Bieber because of his age but at the ripe age of 20, could there be some serious bangers awaiting us? #SOHHWhatchaThink?

3. King of the Channels

Is T.I. the new reality television king? He went from trapping to rapping to acting to reality starring? That might be the case but it seems like he is branching out even further with a new television opportunity. Hollywood Reporter is on it:

Sisterhood of Hip Hop

With Grammy-winning recording artist T.I. as executive producer, this powerful and uplifting series follows the next generation of female hip-hop artists Siya, Nyemiah Supreme, Diamond, Brianna Perry and Bia as they live, love and work toward their dream of becoming the next big breakout star, which has always been a man’s game and these ladies are rewriting the rules of the music scene.
