A girl's gotta eat, right?

When you're hungry, you're hungry.

Page Six reports that Nicki Minaj was set to perform at desginer Philipp Plein's Fashion Week after-show party at 1Oak's pop-up club at Hammerstein Ballroom this week, but was nearly an hour late taking the stage because she insisted on getting Popeyes first.

"She refused to go onstage until she got her Popeyes f*cking chicken. The production team had to send someone out to get her chicken," said Page Six's source.

In her defense, no one wants to perform on an empty stomach; Minaj later took to the stage and performed without incident. The rest of the party, however, got messy when "thousands of uninvited people" arrived after reading about the event on social media.

Said Page Six's source, "The NYPD and FDNY were threatening to shut down the party twice because they were over-capacity. It was the worst thing in all my Fashion Week experiences."
