Nicki Minaj Makes a Big Mistake During 2015 BET Awards Acceptance Speech [VIDEO]
Nicki Minaj was a big winner at the 2015 BET Awards on Sunday (June 28), taking home a trophy for Best Female Hip-Hop Artist and the other was for, well, the rapper actually forgot the name of the award she was receiving. The "Only" rhymer slipped up during her acceptance speech for the Viewers’ Choice Award, admitting that she was clueless about the honor.
As soon as she was announced as the winner, it took quite some time for the New York native to head to the podium to accept her award. It appeared that rather than being seated in the audience she was actually backstage, which may explain why she was frazzled.
When she finally made it to the stage, she began to thank her fans for supporting her album, The Pinkprint, but then things took a turn for the worst when she couldn’t figure out why she was up there. “What was this award for? I’m sorry,” she asked mid-speech while holding her award.
Once the audience helped her out with why she was standing up there, she laughed in embarrassment. "Oh, Viewers' Choice. Oh my god, y'all, thank you. I was in the back," she giggled.
Of course, Minaj’s gaffe became a huge meme on Twitter. One fan even mimicked the Young Money rapper's acceptance speech for laughs and giggles (watch below).
In the end, it was one of the many funny and bizarre moments that happened at the 2015 BET Awards.
