As we reported last time, there was big doings down at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas for the 2017 Billboard Music Awards broadcast. Celine Dion dusted off an old chestnut (celebrating the 20th anniversary of “Titanic,” she sang “My Heart Will Go On”). Drake cavorted in the Bellagio fountains. And both to Nicki Minaj and Cher did their best to sing and show off their best…assets.
One wonders though, if Cher’s naughty haute couture turn gave Nicki a turn to turn up the heat.
As was reported mere days after the awards broadcast, Cher’s show-stopping appearance in a nude dress then mesh bodysuit, for “Believe,” and “If I Could Turn Back Time” respectively, pretty much made it clear that the 71-year old Goddess of Pop could rock with the best of them. In fact, just this week, Good Housekeeping published an article about Cher’s diet, showing how Cher stays fit is foremost on people’s minds this week.
Also this week, Nicki M. posted pics of herself wearing nothing much more than a rope bikini.
With the constant stream of social media posting coming from our best and brightest, it’s hard to determine the motivation behind Minaj’s latest. The pics are sexy to be sure. Her body is almost completely revealed through the ropes. And this shoot doesn’t seem to have been for much more than just Instagram pics. But Nicki Manaj posting a naughty pic across Instagram is nothing we haven’t seen, (enjoyed) before.
One could argue though that the lady’s timing is suspect. Especially seeing that, by all accounts, Cher was the reigning sexy lady of the night this Sunday past and nobody can deny how wonderful she looked on that stage.
Nicki Manaj wrote under these Instagram pictures that she is “milking it”. Is she also trying to compete with Cher?
