Nicki Minaj Explains Difference Between ‘Twerking’ and ‘Whining’
Nicki Minaj is now an official double threat!
But before we got into the movie, we had to ask her about a certain video she posted on Instagram (see below) of what looked like her backside … or was it?
“I thought it was obvious that it was me, so I jokingly said it was a friend and I put a crying face emoji, to let people know I was joking, bit sarcasm does not read well all the time,” Nicki explained. “You can see my face a little bit if you look on the second video.”
So we’ve confirmed it’s Nicki, but do not say she’s twerking!
“We’ve got to stop using that word. That is not a twerking video. That is a whining video. I’m from Trinidad, we whine. We don’t twerk in Trinidad … you’re whining your hips.”
As for Nicki’s acting debut, as the assistant of Cameron’s character, she told Ryan and Ellen K. that the role wasn’t too much of a stretch … because she has worked as an assistant “many times” before!
Still, she was nervous “because of the magnitude of Cameron’s star power. I was just very nervous to even be in her presence. She commands the room when she walks in, but she was really, really fun. So I was able to loosen up a little bit.”
