You never really know how you’ll react when you meet your idol.
NickI Minaj posted a video last night showing her meet Lauryn Hill for the first time backstage at the Tidal X 1015 benefit concert where they both performed. In the video Nicki, in a white fur, falls to her knees and literally bows down to the legend.
“I’m in love with you,” Nicki tells her. It was a genuine and touching gesture rarely seen in the world of celebrity.
“Excuse me while i have an outer body experience. Shaking, crying, a mess!!!!” she captioned the post, then goes on to praise Hill profusely.
“Ms. Lauryn Hill told me to ‘keep spittin that fire’,” she added. “Is this real life?”
