Nicki Minaj demands chicken before NYFW show

NICKI Minaj was an hour late performing at a New York Fashion Week’s after-show party because she was eating chicken.

Nicki Minaj reportedly refused to perform at New York Fashion Week’s after-show party until she had stuffed her face with takeaway chicken.

The ‘Super Bass’ hitmaker was an hour late going on stage at 1Oak’s pop-up club at Hammerstein Ballroom earlier this week because she wanted some greasy grub.

A source told the New York Post newspaper’s Page Six column: “She refused to go onstage until she got her Popeyes chicken (a fast-food chain in the US). The production team had to send someone out to get her chicken.”

However, the party ended in disaster anyway as German fashion designer Philipp Plein – who had arranged the bash – posted details about the glamorous gathering online and “thousands of uninvited people” showed up attempting to get inside.

The insider – who attended the overcrowded party – explained to the publication, “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.”

Meanwhile, Nicki, 34, is set to release her much-anticipated follow up to 2014’s ‘The Pinkprint’ over the next coming weeks and has teased that it’s “so good.”

Although Nicki has remained tight-lipped on the album’s release date, she revealed the record would serve as a thank you to the people who have supported her career. – BANG!
