Nicki Minaj reportedly refused to perform at New York Fashion Week’s after-show party until she had stuffed her face with takeaway chicken.
The ‘Super Bass’ hitmaker was an hour late going on stage at 1Oak’s pop-up club at Hammerstein Ballroom earlier this week because she wanted some greasy grub.
A source told the New York Post newspaper’s Page Six column: “She refused to go onstage until she got her Popeyes f****ing chicken [a fast-food chain in the US]. The production team had to send someone out to get her chicken.”
However, the party ended in disaster anyway as German fashion designer Philipp Plein – who had arranged the bash – posted details about the glamorous gathering online and “thousands of uninvited people” showed up attempting to get inside.
The insider – who attended the overcrowded party – explained to the publiction: “The NYPD and FDNY were threatening to shut down the party twice because they were over-capacity. It was the worst thing in all my Fashion Week experiences.”
