American Music Awards
Nicki Minaj isn't shock-proof. The rapper, whose wigs and red carpet ensembles often shock and surprise her precious Barbz and bloggers, admitted that she was shocked when Justin Bieber asked her to perform 'Beauty and a Beat' with him at the 2012 American Music Awards last week. The duet was unrehearsed and improvised, which meant it could have been a bumpy ride for both superstars.
Despite the fact that they did not sit next to one another at the ceremony, and that she seemed nowhere to be found, and the fact that he didn't give her a shout-out or thank her during any of his acceptance speeches, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez were seen exiting the 2012 American Music Awards holding hands. So much for being broken up... we think!
The fact that K-Pop sensation Psy, who shot to fame as a YouTube sensation, closed the 40th anniversary edition of the American Music Awards tonight (Nov. 18) with his viral smash 'Gangnam Style' was indicative of the times we live in. The AMAs may be four decades old, but they change with the times and are certainly embracing the digital age.
