Nicki Minaj goes full Barbie for MTV VMAs 2022 performance

Barbie’s in the building.

Nicki Minaj pulled out all the stops with her looks for Sunday’s 2022 VMAs, which she co-hosted with Jack Harlow and LL Cool J, performed a medley of her greatest hits and took home the Video Vanguard Award.

Kicking things off with a bang, the 39-year-old “Super Freaky Girl” rapper entered the stage for her performance in a hot pink mini skirt and a bedazzled long-sleeve bustier that was Barbiecore at its finest.

The ensemble consisted of a pearl-encrusted skater skirt, black sparkling high-tops with hot pink laces and a matching bubblegum pink ponytail with a pastel bow.

Even her nails were bright pink – and studded with silver crystals.

Minaj always goes big with her VMAs outfits.

In past years, she’s shown up in a $15,000 gilded gown by La Bourjoisie (2015), a bubblegum pink latex Vex catsuit (2017) and an Off-White bodysuit with a see-through skirt that left little to the imagination (2018).

Minaj’s set on Sunday marked the first time she’s performed on the VMAs stage since 2018.

The medley consisted of songs like “Beez in the Trap,” “Roman’s Revenge” and “Moment 4 Life,” along with her latest hit, “Super Freaky Girl.”

Past Vanguard Award recipients include Madonna, Janet Jackson, Jennifer Lopez, Missy Elliot, Britney Spears, Kanye West, Rihanna and Beyoncé.
