Even with all her career commitments, Nicki Minaj still finds time for charity work. Less than 24-hours after her double win at the American Music Awards Sunday (Nov. 18) night, Minaj jetted back to New York to hand out turkeys at her old elementary school.“The turkey giveaway actually is probably the thing I’m looking the most forward to, which is strange,” Minaj told Ryan Seacrest this morning.
Aside from hitting up her former school, the 29-year-old is busy promoting her just released, Pink Friday Roman Reloaded: The Re-Up album, which adds eight new songs and a 90-minute DVD, to the original installment.
On Tuesday Minaj will hold a fan meet-and-greet in support of her Pink Friday fragrance. “That’s so special,” she said of being able to go back to her hometown. “I did a fragrance release in Manhattan so to come to Queens and do it in my hometown, that’s going to be amazing.”
There will also be a limited edition fragrance to be released in time for the holiday shopping season.
Minaj also addressed her feud with Mariah Carey, which seems to hit a simmer point as of late. When asked about the possibility of doing a duet with the singer on American Idol she replied. “If she’ll have me, I’ll be here waiting.”
The ball’s in your court, Mariah.
