The lovers stay in character even after Minaj utters the movie’s famous lines. “Look at me,” she spits with gusto. “I’m the captain now.” Nicki admits there were some bloopers of the skit during which she was overcome by laughter. “I kept breaking character cracking up laughin,” she confesses in the caption. “How do ppl act in a movie with a person they like?” Viewers probably wouldn’t have guessed based on the final performance.
“If you don’t know what movie this is you can never EVER sit w|us.” she adds like a die-hard fan. “What intrigued me is that he saw it for the 1st time last night (yes I made him but he loved it)” She goes on to express pride in how she really “embodied the character in this scene.”
