Nicki Minaj is trying to give her fans heart attacks. That's the only explanation for the crazy stunt she pulled over the weekend — and by crazy stunt, I mean crazy generous, social media-inspired generosity.
It all started when one of Nicki's fans jokingly asked if the rapper would pay her tuition. Much to the fan's surprise however, Nicki was into the idea, writing, "Show me straight A's that I can verify w/ur school and I'll pay it. Who wants to join THAT contest?!?! Dead serious. Shld I set it up?"
Shortly after, Nicki was hit with a barrage of requests from her fans, asking for help paying for tuition, school equipment, and student loans. Nicki pledged to financially help out a handful of fans and promised to help out even more fans in a month or two. And lest you think she was all talk, TMZ reports that a number of fans have already received funds from the rapper.
Gotta love it when celebs give back. First Beyonce launches a scholarship fund, and now Nicki Minaj is paying for her fans' college classes? Let's hope this becomes the next big celebrity trend. In the meantime, check out screenshots of Nicki's unofficial contest below.
