Me-ow! During Jennifer Lopez’s insanely amazing American Music Awards opening performance, one person was not having it: Nicki Minaj, who totally gave JLo the stank eye when she danced to her song ‘Anaconda.’ See for yourself!
Lighten up, Nicki! During the American Music Awards on Nov. 22, host Jennifer Lopez, 46, blew everyone away with her opening, in which she danced to the biggest songs of the year, including “Anaconda,” a huge hit by Nicki Minaj, 32. Sadly, Nicki didn’t approve of JLo’s ode to her song, and gave her the most pissed off face when the camera panned to her. Check it out!
All of the artists seemed to be totally loving JLo giving their songs shoutouts. Even Justin Bieber played along, doing the robot when she danced to his song, “Sorry.” However, Nicki just wasn’t into the idea of someone who wasn’t her dancing to her song, apparently.
Jen started to do that iconic “Anaconda” dance, which Nicki trademarked in her now-famous music video, and it was insanely impressive. However, when the camera hit Nicki’s face, she did not so much as crack a smile. Actually, she looked literally so pissed off, that Jennifer would dare to touch her song.
Look, Nicki, we get it: you have ownership over your music. That’s awesome! But Jennifer Lopez is a living legend, and she was actually trying to pay homage to you and all the other artists’ achievements this year. Sometimes, it’s okay to just smile and enjoy yourself! Just saying.
It should be noted, at last year’s show, JLo was the one to give Nicki shade during the show, sitting stone-faced as Nicki performed. Interesting!
What do you guys think, was Nicki totally shading Jennifer? Or was she just, uh, not prepared for the camera to be on her face? Sound off below, HollywoodLifers!
