Nicki Minaj performance lures Jennifer Hudson, David Arquette
Nicki Minaj has loyal fans, even when it comes to fellow famous folks including Jennifer Hudson, Olivia Munn, David Arquette and Ron Artest, to name a few who turned out to see the rapper perform in Los Angeles on Thursday night.
At Milk Studios in Hollywood, a blue carpet was rolled out at the Samsung Infuse launch for gadget fans and the Minaj-obsessed. The petite Minaj arrived for her 20-minute set around 10 p.m. with racks and racks of costumes and a new blond bob.
Mark Salling, Kelly Rowland and Arielle Winter of "Modern Family" were present and accounted for, as Hudson and her husband David Otunga spent time waiting in the wings for two minutes with Nicki.
Minaj performed hits "Roman's Revenge," "Super Bass" and "Moment 4 Life" as well as some of her more popular featured gigs, on records like Trey Songz's "Bottoms Up."
Almost as popular as Nicki's set was an interactive room dedicated entirely to Angry Birds, offering access to exclusive levels of the popular game.
