“Dancing With The Stars. Tonight the theme was music icons and I embodied J. Lo, paid an homage to her, and Nicki Minaj,” said Banks, who was dressed up in a pink wig. “It got me thinking, like, sometimes, we feel crappy. We don’t feel great. And sometimes we don’t feel great because we’re great and people are threatened by that. And I think about wonderful performers like Nicki Minaj. She’s amazing. She’s fantastic. And she’s unapologetic. So channel some of that Nicki [umph] next time you’re not feeling so great. Sometimes people are threatened by greatness and they better recognize how great you are.”
Barbz took to social media to share images of Tyra as Nicki and said this further solidified the rapper’s “icon” status. Check out Tyra Banks below.
