The BET Hip Hop Awards are not like the Grammys, where nominations can be hard to come by. Kanye West earned 17 nominations this year. 2 Chainz got 13. Drake got 11. BET creates a silly number of categories, just to make sure everyone can rack up absurd numbers of nominations.
Yet, Minaj was stuck with one. And that one wasn’t even for her music! She’s a contender for the Made-You-Look Award, which rewards the best fashion. Who’s her competition? Kanye West, 2 Chainz, A$AP Rocky, and Big Sean.
Do the BET Hip Hop Awards hate Nicki Minaj? Well, she earned six nominations last year for “Pink Friday,” so either something happened over the past 12 months to make BET mad, or the network really, really, really does not like “Starships” and her “Roman Reloaded” album.
