The “Super Freaky Girl” rapper arrived in a pink lacy number with an ornate veil to the award show, which was held at the Prudential Center in New Jersey Sept. 12. (See all the stars at the MTV VMAs here.)
And Nicki’s night at the VMAs doesn’t just stop on the red carpet. The 40-year-old will take the stage as the emcee, as well as perform her newest single, “Last Time I Saw You,” for the very first time.
Nicki—who has racked up seven VMAs trophies over the years—received six nods at this year’s show, including Video of the Year, Best Hip-Hop and Best Visual Effects for her track “Super Freaky Girl.” She is additionally nominated for Best R&B for her collaboration with Yung Bleu, titled “Love in the Way,” as well as for Song of the Summer for her joint track with Ice Spice, “Barbie World,” which was featured in the Barbie movie.
