You know when you've won so many of music's most acclaimed awards that you're like: Ughh, which award is this that award I'm holding? Nicki Minaj has been there!
At last night's BET Awards, the Pinkprint rapper beat out the likes of Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd to earn the Viewers' Choice Award, but when she took to the stage to thank her legion of devoted fans, she experienced a mooooomentary bout of amnesia. Could someone teach the chart-topper how to tie a string around her finger?
"I wanna thank you guys for the support on The Pinkprint," Minaj says in the clip above, before going blank and asking the audience, "What was this award for? I'm sorry!" Ultimately, a few attentive fans help her out, and she laughs off the bit of absentmindedness like only Nicki could.
"I was in the back!" she defends herself in a final plea. "I love y'all, you know how much I need and want you." We know someone who's downloading a few brain game apps today...
Minaj also took home the trophy for Best Female Hip Hop Artist, but, rest assured, she had her bases covered: It was the sixth year in a row that she's taken that honor home.
Watch the clip to see Nicki in a bit of a flustered moment, and if you saw the award show for yourself, share your favorite part in the comments below.
