Nicki Minaj took the stage at the BET Awards on June 29 to accept an award — but shared a really scary story that she recently went through something traumatic and thought she was going to die! So, what was that experience? It reportedly has to do with marijuana — even though she wasn’t smoking!
Nicki Minaj’s Near-Death Experience: What Happened
“The other day, literally I didn’t tell anybody this, I really thought I was about to die. Like, I was saying my prayers to die,” Nicki said in her acceptance speech. “And I didn’t even want to call the ambulance because I thought, ‘Well if I call the ambulance, it’s going to be on TMZ.’ And I would rather sit there and die. And it made me realize I don’t care what anybody got to say. I’m going to do me.”
So, what exactly was that crazy experience? Well, she was reportedly in the studio with Lil Wayne and some of his crew who were all smoking, MediaTakeOut reported. While Nicki doesn’t smoke weed, she does allow others to around her.
“These [guys] went overboard with it though. They kept smoking and smoking, till the whole BUILDING was full of weed smoke,” a source told MTO, adding that Nicki ended up leaving with a “contact high” and then got home and started having heart palpitations.
That sounds scary — it’s good to hear she’s okay. And she definitely is. She completely wow’d with an amazing motorcycle-using performance that night! What do you think of her story, HollywoodLifers?
