No, that's not the beginning of a joke -- it's true! Nicki Minaj posted an Instagram picture of an epic group shot at Coachella, also featuring Shania Twain, Oscar-nominated actor Timothée Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name), The Weeknd, French Montana, Belly, and NAV, among others.
In her caption, Nicki sweetly fangirled over meeting Shania, writing that the country star "is so dope in real life." Meanwhile, Shania also posted the group shot to her own Instagram, and captioned it, "Good times at Coachella last night."
Perhaps this meeting was a long time coming, because last year during a listening party for her latest album Now, Shania had declared her fandom for Minaj. She said, "You know who I really love is Nicki Minaj. I love her. She’s just so raw and vicious and amazing."
Sooo when is the Shania/Nicki collab happening? We wanna know.
Nicki had an exciting weekend, as she dropped two brand new singles "Barbie Tingz" and "Chun-Li," the first taste of the rapper's long-awaited, highly anticipated fourth full-length studio album (the followup to 2014's The Pinkprint).
Aside from her Shania hangout, it looks like Nicki had an amazing time at Coachella over the weekend. In other photos posted to her Instagram, Minaj is dressed in a fierce form-fitting leopard outfit, accessorized with a golden chain across her face.
Nicki also shared a video hanging out with Kylie Jenner (who rocked some neon pink hair for the 2018 Coachella weekend), her sister Kourtney Kardashian, Travis Scott, Chance the Rapper, and Quavo who were all dancing and having a great time.
If there was ever a time to have Coachella FOMO, here it is:
This year's first Coachella weekend was epic as the festival featured a history-making performance from headliner Beyoncé (which featured a Destiny's Child reunion), as well as performances from fellow headliners The Weeknd and Eminem, and a lineup of superstars.
