Nicki Minaj f/ Skylar Grey on Fallon

Nicki Minaj was not only the musical guest on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, but she also sat down for a brief sit-down with the host. My biggest takeaway was that she used to be a waitress at Red Lobster. Probably common knowledge to the Barbz, but that’s not me, haha.

The video above then contains her performance of “Bed of Lies” with Skylar Grey and The Roots. Nicki really let Skylar have the shine tonight and on this single in general. In fact, for all the extra parts that Skylar sings, it feels more and more like a Skylar Grey song featuring Nicki Minaj (no shade). I enjoy Skylar’s work, whether as a guest or solo, and apparently so does Russell Crowe (another takeaway from the interview). But Jimmy didn’t hear of her until recently — we gotta get ’em in check.

BONUS: Justin Timberlake also appeared on the show, in a sketch.
