Young Money’s Nicki Minaj cannot catch a break despite landing a few trophies at last weekend’s “American Music Awards” ceremony by being called out for a nasty fan interaction.
According to reports, Minaj turned down a fan’s album signing request.
She snagged trophies for favorite hip-hop album and hip-hop artist, but “she was in total b*tch mode,” said a source, who witnessed the diva snub a fan. According to a spy, when one male fan “approached her to sign a CD,” she snapped, “‘Why? So you can sell it on eBay?’ She refused. She was downright antisocial and rude.” (Page Six)
Minaj ended gossip and rumors about her throwing shade at “American Music Awards” hostess Jennifer Lopez on Twitter Sunday (November 22).

Viral speculation suggested J. Lo’s on-stage presence did not impress Nicki.
AMAs host Jennifer Lopez performed a dance medley to the top songs of the year to open Sunday’s awards show, an effort that included Minaj’s “Anaconda.” The Dick Clark Productions cameras customarily zoomed in on each artist as their song was being interpreted on stage. When Minaj’s turn came up, however, she didn’t appear as pleased or impressed as some of her contemporaries. With a stoic look on her face, Minaj watched the stage expressionless, before looking away. (The Wrap)
Nicki won multiple trophies at the annual ceremony and beat out stiff competition from fellow Young Money labelmate Drake.
Nicki Minaj won her first American Music Award of the night — and fifth overall — for her album “The Pinkprint,” which won in the category or R&B/hip-hop album. She bested releases from Drake and J. Cole. “I personally feel like I have the best fans on the planet,” Minaj said while accepting the award. The AMAs are fan-voted. Before leaving the stage, she encouraged fans to “find your voice and find your purpose before it’s too late.” (Los Angeles Times)
