In one humorous skit, below, Minaj provided her take on Beyoncé in a spoof that featured SNL cast members impersonating Rihanna, Eminem, Riff Raff, Rick Ross, Justin Bieber and Kanye West, entitled “Jingle Ballerz Special: MTV Present’s Hip Hop Nativity.”

In the second clip, Nicki is featured on SNL’s popular Weekend Update segment, parodying Kim Kardashian‘s recent attempt to break the internet with a racy Paper Magazine cover-shoot. In the skit, we see Minaj play Kim as she humorously explains the truth behind the real intention of her recent nude photos.

Nicki Minaj is consistently proving that she’s a great performance artist, whether it’s on screen or in hip-hop songs. The rapper/singer is currently gearing up for the release of her third studio album, The Pinkprint, will be debuting December 15th, 2014 in stores and at online retailers. The album artwork and track listing can be seen below.
