Nicki Minaj is stepping onto the small screen for a brand new series about her own life. Now THIS … should be good.

The Trinidadian beauty confirmed via Instagram on Tuesday morning that she will be producing and appearing in a new ABC Family comedy that will chronicle the rapper’s life growing up in Queens, NY with her immigrant family.

“I’m so excited to share this news with you guys,” she wrote.

“Nicki Minaj is a force to be reckoned with at everything she touches,” said ABC Family’s EVP Programming and Development Karey Burke. “Nicki is an international superstar, yet not everyone knows how inspiring and hilarious her true story is, and we can’t wait to share it with the world.”

Minaj, legal name Onika Tanya Maraj, has dabbled in acting, but according to the rapper, “This is one of the more unique adventures I’ve ever embarked on. I couldn’t be more proud and excited to team up with an amazing group of people to give the world something really special.”

Stepping in front of the camera will be easy for the star who not only studied acting at LaGuardia High School, but played alongside Cameron Diaz in the rom com, The Other Woman, where she played Diaz’s hilarious, confident assistant.

Prior to the release of the 2014 film, Nicki revealed to Marie Claire that she was interested in doing more acting. “I at least want to do three more albums. If I can do that, I’ll feel complete … One day, when I start getting a couple gray hairs, maybe it will all be only acting. I just never know,” the artist shared.

Production is set to shoot the pilot episode this winter in Queens.

The Good, Bad And Ug… Less Flattering At The NAACP Image Awards

Published

This year, the NAACP Image Awards were held on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. As we all know, Dr. King had a dream, and for many on the red carpet it was a dream come true. But unfortunately, there were some nightmares … fashion nightmares.

Here’s our list of then stars who were hot and those who left us bothered. First, let’s start with the hot…

And it doesn’t get hotter than Halle Berry showing half her body. Ms. Berry slayed in this Reem Acra gown reminding then youngin’s that she’s still got it.

And speaking of youngin’s A Wrinkle In Time star Storm Reid may be relatively new to the game, but she showed up on the carpet looking like a vet in this adorable Yanina number.

Yara Shahidi also showed up serving #BlackGirlMagic in this beautiful Vera Wang dress.

And Kerry Washington killed it, also wearing black, in this Michael Kors stunner.

But as we know, with the good comes the bad, and the bad this time around came courtesy…

Danielle Brooks, we love our Orange Is The New Black boo, but this Michael Costello look just didn’t work for her.

Ava DuVernay – Getty Images

We also love Ava DuVernay, but unfortunately this Greta Constatine jumpsuit didn’t have us jumping for joy.

Lil Mama – Getty Images

Lil Mama left us wanting more in this navy blue feathery frock … actually it may be her hair that left us disappointed.

And adding to our disappointment was Letoya Luckett wearing a purple gown that had scallops and bows and slits … oh my!

Do you agree with our hots and nots?
