Female rapper and fashion icon Nicki Minaj pulled off a great performance of “Super Bass” during the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2011. Although Nicki Minaj is just a last minute replacement for performer Cee Lo Green, she managed to pull off a great performance that rocked the whole event.
West performed his solo hit “Stronger,” and then was joined by his Watch the Throne partner, Jay-Z, for a rousing version of their current smash “N—as in Paris.” Before launching into “Stronger,” West addressed the fact that he was originally scheduled to perform at the 2007 Victoria’s Secret show, but canceled his appearance after the death of his mother, Donda.
“In 2007, I was supposed to perform this song … then my mom passed away,” West reportedly told the audience, which included the likes of Beyoncé and Tyson Beckford. “She was my superhero. Now she’s my super-angel.”
