Young Money‘s Nicki Minaj is saving the day. The hip-hop vixen has reportedly replaced fellow music star Jennifer “J. Lo” Lopez for a New Year’s Eve party.

According to reports, Nicki is filling in for J. Lo for an upcoming Miami nightclub event.

Nicki Minaj is coming to the rescue of a Miami nightclub — saving a New Year’s Eve event by replacing Jennifer Lopez and doing it for significantly less dough. We’re told E11even nightclub acted swiftly after J Lo bailed on the gig that would have scored her a million dollar payday. It’s unclear how much Nicki’s getting, but our sources say the club scored a bargain. Nicki was pretty hands-on for the event — she wanted to approve all pics used to promote the event. (TMZ)

Minaj has since hopped on Instagram to promote the upcoming New Year’s Eve outing.


Hours prior, buzz developed about her rap boyfriend Meek Mill banking $200,000 for a Miami New Year’s Eve party.

Sources close to Meek tell us … he’s getting $200k to perform at Dream Nightclub in South Beach, plus $20k to partially cover expenses. Not too shabby for a guy whose career seems to be on a never-ending roller coaster. We’re told Meek will also be lubricated with spirits — 10 bottles of Ace of Spades, 5 bottles of Moet Nectar Rosé and some Hennessy and tequila to boot. (TMZ)
