You know you’ve made it when Queen Latifah gives you props, and that’s exactly what Nicki Minaj got during the taping of VH1 Big in 2015 with Entertainment Weekly.
Latifah paid homage to an emotional Minaj, who was among the honorees for the event that recognizes those who’ve entertained us the most all year long.
“You’ve become an inspiration to women everywhere,” Queen Latifah says in a video posted by VH1. “I love how you’re never afraid to speak your mind. You’re a strong woman, you refuse to be backed into a corner.“
Latifah continues, “You’ve established yourself as one of the greats,” adding, “No one can take that away from you.”
You can expect the VH1 Big in 2015 with Entertainment Weekly event to air Monday, December 7 at 9 p.m. ET on VH1.
