  • Nicki Minaj is all about being a Barbie queen. She performed a medley of her new songs “Right By My Side” and “Starships” on the Ellen DeGeneres Show atop a huge white throne.

    The rapper debuted “Right By My Side” on the show wearing a long pink gown, vest and platinum blonde wig. The video for the song will premiere next week.

    Minaj also sat down for a hilarious segment with Sophia Grace and Rosie, the British pre-teens whose YouTube show has been watched by millions of viewers.

    “Pink is your color. Pink is gonna keep you happy for the rest of your life. “Pink is gonna give you power, energy, and the girliness that you need,” she told the girls.

    Nicki also said fame presents its own challenges. “People are willing to have an accident,” she said. “A girl literally cut through traffic and made a u-turn just to put her car in front of my car, so she could take a picture.”

    Watch out for that traffic jam straight up ahead.
