Jay-Z, Kanye West And Nicki Minaj Headline Victoria's Secret Fashion Show Performances

On a night where supermodels in expensive thongs and bras were the main event, Hip Hop took center stage.

Nearly a month after the initial event took place, CBS aired the annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion show Tuesday night. Pop/Rock outfit Maroon 5 joined in on the festivities, but by and large, those present at New York’s Lexington Avenue Armory were treated to a Hip Hop show. In a year highlighted by the contrast between the rich and poor,  a collection of lingerie that included pieces in the $2 million range was displayed on models catwalking to tracks from one of 2011’s most opulent albums—Watch The Throne?

Kanye West and Jay-Z took center stage with their certified platinum-selling single, “N*ggas In Paris.” And while the cameras often panned to an expecting Beyonce, Jay-Z pointed to the runway and joked, “We’re here…we might as well walk it.”

The Throne’s performance was sandwiched between a decidedly more weighty solo set by West and an upbeat closing act by Young Money’s Nicki Minaj respectively. West informed the crowd that he was also originally scheduled to perform during the 2007 show before tragedy struck.

“I was supposed to perform this song on this show, and I lost my superhero…now she’s my super angel,” West announced, in reference to his mother, Dr. Donda West, before performing “Stronger.”

Nicki Minaj concluded the night with a nearly five-minute long version of “Super Bass,” which featured Victoria’s Secret models joining in on the choreography and the usual cadre of male dancers.

  • Rumor Has IT

    Apparently they Jay & Kanye got $300,000 each. Nicki got $75,000 That's big money. The ROC!

      what's your point? you never made $75,000 in your whole life. Nicki has sold only 1.6 million records after 53 months, while Jigga and Ye have sold 50 million worldwide after 18 years in the game. ain't nothing wrong with making less than legends, when your only a rookie. your hate is showing, so therfore your comment isn't valid.

      I'm sure she looks better than every female you have ever hooked up with for free. If you're a female, i'm sure you don't even look better than Nicki.

    Great performance of Jigga und Ye. Ye's solo performance was awesome, too. Especially the beginning of Stronger was brilliant. The whole idea of them models walking while Ye's rappin' is great. By the way, good to see Kanye wearing special but not hillarious clothes. Minaj's set was also ok but as usual: what in god's name is she wearing? Ahh, when you Jay, Kanye und Nicki Minaj there, it definitelly would be cool if they performed "Monster"

      Didn't even think of that but you're right, a performance of "Monster" would have been spectacular!

      Nicki's performance was awesome as well, so chill with that bias. "Monster" would have been amazing, because all 3 of them are amazing!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Peace, Business and Millions

    Glad to see, Rocnation, Young Money and G.O.O.D performing in the same business. This shows that black owned businesses know how to conduct themselves without violence. Business first is the lesson learned. Both teams are winning and it's enough money for everyone to get, so get it.
