It’s been one hell of a year for Nicki Minaj since she released her debut LP, “Pink Friday,” last November (see: our 2010 cover above). Now, just as she’s announced her second album (“Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded,” out Feb. 14), Nicki’s capping off her biggest year yet by accepting Billboard’s Rising Star Award at our annual Women in Music Event on Dec. 2. She’ll appear at the event alongside our Woman of the Year, Taylor Swift. We can’t promise another “Super Bass” duet, but we’re crossing our fingers.

And barbz, she’s giving you some love on this one, telling us: “My nation of barbz and I have come a mighty long way; yet we are nowhere close to where God will take us. Sit back and enjoy the ride.” 

Congrats, Nicki!
